Colona VI - Liveaboard


The Colona vessel is Thailand's mother nature of a Liveaboard, oozing maturity and a wealth of experience, comforting you every step of the way. She accommodates up to 14 guests with 6 twin cabins and 1 double cabin all air-conditioned. Each cabin has en suite shower and toilet, fridge, fitted cupboard and large panoramic window. Cabins are clean, spacious and comfortable and all situated on the main deck level. The upper deck has a cozy cushion corner to lounge and relax and a large dining/bar area with seating booths, TV/DVD with a selection of films and music. There's plenty of room for sun worshipers on the large 50sqm sun deck and you'll find it hard to find a better dive leader and crew. Colona guests return time and time again, this alone speaks volumes. We think they have one of the friendliest liveaboards in Thailand.

The diving in the Similan Islands is truly a world-class diving experience - Colona Liveaboard offers Special 6 days/6 nights packages to make the most of diving the best dive sites Thailand has to offer such as Richelieu Rock, Koh Tacha & Koh Bon for added Whale Shark and Manta Ray sightings - a must do destination for all avid dive fans.
