EvelynMcNamara Testimonial

Evelyn McNamara – Ireland

“A truly magical experience on the magnificent Diva Andaman. The entire team were incredibly professional, experienced and fun. Yannick’s Diva is a labour of love that shows in every aspect of the boat’s appeara nce and operation. Spacious rooms, fabulous sundowner cocktails on the beautiful decks, and then three dives with whale sharks! We had an incredible trip around the Similan islands and are planning our next voyage already.”

Andrea Marshall Testimonial

Andrea Marshall – Mozambique

“I have been working with Diva Andaman for years in the Mergui Archipelago and Thailand.
The boat is a wonderful platform for the Marine Megafauna Foundation’s field research expeditions and has allowed me and my team to spend time in very remote parts of this coastline conducting important observations on giant oceanic manta rays. Since the vessel is large it has also afforded me the opportunity to bring citizen scientist guests and donors out to the field with me. I really enjoy showing others what we do and allowing them to get involved in exploration and research. Experiences like this can be life changing for people yearning to get involved in marine conservation efforts.”

Finn Skårderud & Peter Nore – Norway

“The very best week every winter. As regular guests we appreciate the atmosphere on the boat, relaxing and reading, the warm and competent crew, and the excellent diving. We have seen mantas on more dives. And not to forget the thai massage. See you next year!”

ZanVanBrunschot Testimonial

Zan Van Brunshot – Canada

“I had the rare and wonderful privilege to take a journey far out to sea, together with one of my dearest friends – we set out on the SY Diva Andaman for a week long diving excursion. It was love at first sight, the Diva is a magnificent vessel that one can clearly see is well loved. She immediately felt like home and took us wanderers in with open arms. The captain, crew, and the expertise of the dive team made the whole trip so magical, not to mention the fabulous cuisine. It was such a serine experience to wake up and watch the sunrise out there in the middle of the ocean – living to absorb and reflect. The upper deck is great for yoga, sunbathing and socialising. I came away with a renewed curiosity for the workings and marvels of the sea as the seamounts, creatures, and clarity of the water were out of this world! This is world class diving! I am very impressed with the calm and respectful connection the Captain and Crew have for the ocean. The whole trip was so well run, i felt safe at once and always! I found it very hard to leave the Diva, but very thankful for the experience. Sincerely.”

DaveKenealy Testimonial

Dave Kenealy – Ireland

“What an amazing trip! All I can say is three things: the boat, the crew, and the diving. The boat is absolutely beautiful. I have never seen such a well-maintained timber craft before.
It was spacious for everybody both below and above the deck. Perfectly clean and it made me feel very comfortable. I loved the food and the crew was always very helpful and professional.
A special thanks to Tas and Yannick. They just made the trip so memorable with their hospitality.
I particularly enjoyed the morning coffee on the top deck while watching the sunrise (highly recommended for everyone!).
The diving….. oh the diving! We saw exactly what we hoped for – whale sharks. Loads of them. The harlequin shrimp were just a bonus along with the many schools of barracuda, banded sea snakes and everything else that you would expect. Most of all the clarity was amazing and the underwater topography of granite was something I’ve never seen before. Truly dramatic. I can’t wait to get back for another trip!”

“The Diva Andaman is a superior liveaboard. The divemasters, operators, deck hands, cooks, captain and management make sure each detail is taken care of. It is extremely comfortable and the food is exceptional – healthy, fresh, indulgent. The diving is wonderful. I highly recommend it!”
