Safety on board our Similan Liveaboard
On board OKTAVIA safety is a top priority. After boarding you will receive
a thorough presentation of the ship and the safety routines and procedures
on board.
We will of course show you were all the different safety equipment is located
as well as give you tips how to make your cruise extra comfortable as well
as safe. In the unlikely event that an emergency situation would arise
on board there are life rafts with space for everyone, first-aid trained
personnel, a well stocked first-aid box, life rings, oxygene, plenty of
fire extinguishers, life vests - also in childrens' sizes, dinghy,
satellite phone, mobile phone, etc. In addition, each crew member is
equipped with a walkie talkie, enabling quick and effective
intra-crew communication.
High water alarm siren. On board MV OKTAVIA the dive deck
and dive platform is CCTV-monitored from the bridge, the cooking gas
bottles are placed outside for maximum safety, and our scuba diving and
snorkeling equipment is in very good shape and serviced regularly.
The doors to the cabins are sliding doors, which offer more space and
less risk for obstructions should an evacuation be necessary.

All scuba diving is done in buddy pairs and led by an experienced guide.
Maximum group size is 4 divers : 1 instructor.
We do a 5m safety stop on every dive. The closest decompression chamber
is in Patong Beach, Phuket, approximately 120km south of Khao Lak.

A typical day on board MV/ OKTAVIA


An early bird breakfast (tea /coffee and toast) is served at around 06:30.
This is followed at 07:30 by the first organized dive and snorkel session.

We return to the boat around 08:30 for the main breakfast.
A buffet of boiled, fried, or scrambled eggs, sausages, pancakes, bread,
lots of fresh fruit, and more ! After breakfast most people either relax
on the sun deck, take a nap in their cabins enjoy a talk with fellow guests,
tag along on a beach or an island excursion, or go for a snorkel session
on their own.

At around 11:30 it is time for our second organized dive and
snorkel session
. This is followed by lunch.
Choose from 4 delicious Thai and Western dishes.
We promise you won't lose weight while cruising with OKTAVIA !
After lunch it is once again time to work hard - continue reading in the
hammock, tanning on sun deck, napping in the cabin bunk, snorkeling in
warm and clear water, or another pleasant activity.
The third organized dive and snorkel session is scheduled for
around 15:00. After that we serve some snacks and fresh fruits.
The following couple of hours are perferct for more relaxation on
board or on the beach, looking in fish guides, a swim or snorkel session
on your own, or whatever else you feel up to.

17:00  we organize the last dive of the day for the ones who do not
want to do a night dive.
Just don't miss the sunset at around 18:00 - it is extremely beautiful,
especially at the Similan Islands.
Night dive is scheduled between 19:00 - 20:00.
Dinner is served afterwards. The rest of the evening we sit around talking
over a couple of cold beers, perhaps looking at someone's digital photos
from the days' diving or snorkling sessions, playing a game,
or watching a movie on the flat screen TV.

Having a wonderful time
makes you tired, so most people head for
their cabins and bunks at around 22:00. Some head for the sun deck
to sleep under the stars.

                     Try it - you'll love it!
