The newly outfitted MV Hallelujah replaces one of our older boats. I have personally taken several Similans dive trips on this boat and she offers exceptional value for money. The MV Hallelujah is like a first class boat in a business class price range. She runs a tried and tested four night schedule which includes the best of the Similan Islands dive sites, and also Koh Bon for the Manta Rays, Koh Tachai, and the famous Richelieu Rock. She takes a maximum of 25 guests, but the boat is so expansive, that even when it is full you'll never feel crowded. The sun-deck upstairs is large enough to have a knock about with a football! This is a very nice boat.
Hallelujah Similans liveaboard offers guests two deluxe cabins with double beds, ten standard twin cabins with bunk beds, and one VIP single person cabin. We advise early booking for this trip to avoid disappointment. The attractive prices coupled with the high standards of the boat makes this a sought after Similans liveaboard. All cabins are air-conditioned, have sea views, and have en-suite bathrooms. She offers both inside and outside dining areas, and oodles of space where guests can find a quiet place to relax with a book or sunbathe. Again, the MV Hallelujah offers great value for money and is a truly beautiful boat.
Two way hotel transfers are included. Pick-up times start late afternoon for the short journey to the pier just north of Phuket. The boat departs at around 11pm for an overnight cruise to the Similans where guests will wake up to a light breakfast before their first dive.
Schedule, Prices, & Itinerary The Hallelujah runs a standard tried and tested schedule with fourteen dives in the Similans, Koh Bon, Tachai, and Richelieu Rock. Transfers start in the afternoon of departure and the boat cruises over night to the Similans. After four nights diving from and sleeping on the boat, guests return to dry land early afternoon and transfer back to their Phuket hotels at around 5:00pm.
