From October 2017, Nemo 1 is a brand-new purpose-built diving liveaboard with a steel hull. At 27m in length and 5.5m wide, it is easily big enough to accommodate its capacity of 20 overnight guests as well as sail through any rough seas that may be encountered. There are two types of cabin; four bunk & double bed. All are air-conditioned, clean and ensure a good night’s sleep. In addition, there is a large covered outdoor dining area as well as a small lounge saloon that is air conditioned.

Nemo 1 is known as a 'platform' or 'flexible' liveaboard diving boat. This is in reference to its trips, and not the actual boat. Unlike most scheduled liveaboard trips, which normally sail out in the evening and return to port a few days later, platform boats stay out at sea all season. Divers are taken to the ship by speedboat in the morning of their first day, and they stay on Nemo 1 for one night, two nights or even three nights. This system means that you can easily fit in a liveaboard diving trip to fit your holiday schedule. Nemo 1 does not stay in one place. The boat has a weekly itinerary that visits more than 20 different diving sites. Only the very best dive spots are repeated.

Sun deckWhat makes diving from MV Nemo 1 so special is hard to define. Firstly, the pickups in the morning are guaranteed to be on time, ensuring that the speedboat leaves as scheduled and nobody is kept waiting. Dive guides and instructors are all professional and helpful, and can speak several languages. The food is delicious and plentiful and the small dive groups enjoy carefully-chosen locations under the sea. An extremely experienced Swiss couple own and run the company. They use their years of diving at The Similan Islands, Koh Bon & Koh Tachai to know what guests want, need & deserve. Everything runs just like a Swiss watch, and diving and snorkelling guests can relax and enjoy excellent trips. PADI courses are available on request. Please note that overnight divers on Nemo are required to dive with a dive computer. Those who don't have their own are able to hire them for a reasonable price.

MV Nemo 1 Itinerary

Booking / Enquiry

Please carefully check the itinerary that matches your chosen trip. Nemo has several itineraries, depending on which day of the week you join.

All trips start with pick up from Khao Lak hotels (6.45-7.45am) and 8.00am departure by speedboat from Tab Lamu Pier, Khao Lak, Phang Nga.

3-4 dives per day.

Return to Tab Lamu Pier on your final day is at 4.45pm, and everyone is taken back to their chosen destinations around Khao Lak.

The itineraries below are the most-common for each trip, but these can sometimes be changed for a number of reasons. Small changes are made due to weather & sea conditions, special marine life sightings, overcrowded dive sites, local-authorities' instructions, and the needs & requests of the paying guests. The safety & comfort of all guests is most important at all times.

MV Nemo 1 Courses

Booking / Enquiry

MV Nemo 1 is a great place to take part in a diving course. The Advanced Open Water (AOW) course is by far the most popular, as it allows you to become fully immersed in the divers’ environment. It involves very little theory, but lots of great diving. Nitrox, Adventure Deep are other courses which are popular on Similan liveaboard trips. Some people even decide to try diving or learn and become certified.

Please contact us for details and the most competitive quote.

Anyone wanting to take part in a diving course on MV Nemo need to let us know in advance, so that we can prepare the best instructor and materials for each customer. In addition, those who want to learn to dive by taking part in a PADI Open Water Diver course really need to spend at least a two full days on land in Khao Lak prior to boarding the boat. This time is spent learning and reviewing the theory and practical diving skills. Other dive centres are more flexible or allow less preparation time for Open Water courses, but the staff and crew of MV Nemo want divers to be absolutely prepared before jumping the deep clear seas of the Similan Islands.

MV Nemo 1 Transfer details

Booking / Enquiry

Free pick up and drop off is available for Nemo guests in the Khao Lak area. Those coming from too far north of Khao Lak can be picked up and dropped off for a small charge. It is not practical for guests from Phuket. This journey is long and expensive for morning departures, so we strongly recommend guests stay in Khao Lak the night before the trip.

To be fair to all guest on Nemo, the pick up vehicle is unable to wait for late guests! Transfers to the speedboat and then to the diving ship must be on time. Please do not be late for your Nemo morning pick up!

Nemo 1 surpassed our expectations! Five stars. Food was fabulous and some of the best Thai food on our trip. The Thai who helped service our gear were extremely helpful and fast. Our scuba instructor, Jasmine, was soooo good! She has the best signs under water, was super good at finding and identifying fish, was friendly and extremely knowledgeable. We had a blast playing games between dives, dancing to music, and overall with the whole experience. more

I really liked the fact that the Liveaboard boat already is on location and that you are brought to the boat by speedboat. Service is excellent on board with enthusiastic dive crew and Thai boat crew. Groups were well formed along experience and enthusiasm. Will certainly come back, plenty I have not seen yet.
