Liveaboard Diving

Explore the west coast of Thailand & Myanmar (Burma)

During each dive season, we dive during our cruises at the Andaman Sea in Thailand from the most southern dive sites Hin Daeng and Hin Muang, up north via the Similan National Marine Park and the Surin National Marine Park, to the Mergui Archipelago in Myanmar (Burma), with the most northern dive site being Black Rock. Most of our Liveaboard Dive Tours start from our home base, Ranong Province, where you can start the tours from Ranong town, Koh Chang island and Koh Payam island. Koh Payam is often written also as Koh Phayam.

Due to our varying schedule along the West Coast, some of our Liveaboard Dive Tours start from places further south of Ranong, like Kura Buri, Tablamu near Khao Lak and Phuket in southern Thailand.

Dive at the best dive sites of the Andaman Sea

Besides our common Liveaboard Dive Tours, like the 'Andaman Dive Safari' the 'Similan Dive Safari' and the 'Southern Dive Safari', we create each year some combination tours for you, which include accommodation and some extras. By combining two or multiple tours you have the possibility to explore bigger areas of Thailand and/or Myanmar (Burma), therefore we named these combination tours, our Dive Adventure Tours.


About us

Diving in the Andaman Sea since 2000

Aladdin Dive Safari opened it's dive shop doors at Koh Chang in Ranong Province, Thailand, in the year 2000 and since then we cruise during each dive season from October-May along the West Coast of Thailand. Since 2007 we make every year regular cruises to the Mergui Archipelago in Myanmar (Burma) as well. During numerous tours, we made hundreds to thousands of dives in these areas and still love to go diving every day. Fascinating sceneries and amazing marine life make our days and we love to show you around. Our aim is to give our guests a personal and friendly welcoming stay, with lots of good diving, great food and big fun.

Enjoy the personal atmosphere

We dive in small groups of maximum 4-5 guests per guide. Through our briefings prior to each dive, we inform you about the currents, the geography of the site and the marine life you can see. During your time onboard and underwater, we will do our utmost best that you will experience a great time while being out on the sea.
