Southern Andaman Liveaboards Adventures – Try Somewhere Different

There are a small number of liveaboard boats that head to a small but stunning group of dive sites situated in the south of the Andaman Sea. These Southern Andaman liveaboards are usually short term and no more that two or three days. Some take in dive sites like Phi Phi or Shark Point on the way there or on the way back.

The dive sites of Koh Haa (5 Islands), Hin Muang (Purple Rock) and Hin Daeng (Red Rock) are to this day only accessible by these liveaboard vessels and there are currently no day trips out of Phuket to any of the dive sites.

Hin Muang and Hin Daeng are no strangers to the classic favourites of the manta rays and whale sharks and Koh Haa providing a visually stunning spectacle for divers above and below the water. These dive sites would make for alternative to the common liveaboard destinations of northern Andamans.

Do I Need to Know How To Swim to Scuba Dive?

This is a question that I often get asked, and really it is not as simple as YES or NO. Here is some explanations and reasons why. If you want to become a certified scuba diver by doing the PADI Open Water Diver Course, the answer is yes. In the PADI Open Water Diver Course it is specified that you have to be able to swim continuously for 200 metres. This can be with any stroke however it does need to be continuous without stopping. There is alternate option and that is you do a 300 metre mask, fin and snorkel swim. Some do find this easier to the 200 swim. You also have to be able to tread water or float for at least 10 minut [...]
