OUR BOAT

One of the best-known liveaboard boats out at the Similan Islands & Richelieu Rock is MY Genesis 1. She is a standard-size steel-hull vessel at 25 metres in length. With never more than twelve passengers on board there is plenty of room to relax and move around, and be spoiled by her friendly and professional crew of eight. The boat’s large dive platform is at water level, making entries and exits safe and easy. While safety comes first at all times, fun and enjoyment are extremely important on Genesis liveaboard cruises.

OUR CABINS

Genesis 12 guests can choose from 5 twin bunk and 2 single cabins. Each cabin has independent AC and panoramic sea-views, and guests share 2 bathrooms with western toilets and showers.

FOOD ON BOARD

Both local and international dishes are served and everything is cooked fresh every day. Snacks between dives are provided along with water, tea, coffee and soft drinks. Alcohol is available on board to purchase.

AMENITIES

When not sleeping or in the water, MY Genesis has several areas to relax or socialize, the sun deck and bow of the boat offer a great place to soak up the sun, or guests can enjoy the shade in the outdoor dining area. There is also an indoor lounge with movie and music library.

Prices are very competitive, but safety and service standards remain very high.

Taking into account the size of the boat compared to how many guests join each trip, Genesis is a great option. It is a favourite among divers who travel alone, pairs or friends and families. With free Nitrox fills, it's also excellent value, although not so cheap to attract many backpacker divers. Non-divers and snorkellers are also welcome to join.

DIVING WITH US

Liveaboard cruises from Khao Lak

Starting from Khao Lak we operate our MY Genesis. Running 3 days and 2 night cruises to the Similan Islands and to the dive spots further north she offers the best diving in a short period of time. Ideal for all divers who want to experience liveaboard diving in Thailand but without spending too long on board. MY Genesis 1 departs from Khao Lak in the morning and guests dive three times on the first day. There’s no need to spend a night at sea before the first dive.

You can choose from Similan Island tours and trips to Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock. For those who are unsure about whether to dive at the world-famous and popular Similan Islands or the more challenging Richelieu Rock, Koh Bon and Koh Tachai, there’s the option of diving at both! The MY Genesis combi-package includes twenty dives and a discount. Also, MY Genesis you can get FREE Nitrox (enriched air) tank fills, provided that they are certified Nitrox divers. And if you're not Nitrox certified yet, you can do the course on the trip.

These tours start from Khao Lak but of course we can also arrange transfers from Phuket to the harbour. So you dont have to stay in the area before and/or after your cruise.
