Sun Deck and upper Cabins
The Andaman sea of Thailand comprises a nature and marine preservation park of around 15.000 square kilometers with about 3.500 islands. In this area you are able to watch birds such as tukans or sea eagles, which are only some of the endangered species which can be found there.
Most of the smaller islands are uninhabited and offer unimaginable coral- and sand beaches, which invite you for some great swimming. Gigantic and impressive limestone formations with mysterious stalactites/ stalagmites - caves and caves salience sometimes 350 meters vertically out of the water. Their bizarre forms seem to show stoned pictures of animals, made by mother nature
facilities onboard the Dauw Talae:
The Dauw Talae isn’t an usual diving boat, but a cruise, which offers additional facilities for experienced divers. Non-diving guests are not disturbed by the activities performed by the divers. However, the ship does not offer a diving course- there are also no coaches on board. The crew actually wants to encourage diving coaches to put together their own groups and programs. Guests with expected experience can borrow diving equipment on the normal cruises.
You are able to discuss details about your individual diving experiences with the owner of the ship, who has a diving experience of 25 years. The junk also offers a great opportunity for underwater videographers and photographers. The ship has enough sheltered areas where divers can prepare their equipment and recharge batteries. After dinner, the underwater films, shot during the day, can be watched on TV and copies can be made on normal videocassettes.
The Bauer K 14 compressor (20 lt.-tank = 6 min.), which can be found in the trunk of the ship, provides you fast and quietly with filtered air. For the re-charging of the batteries, 220 Volts are offered, together with 12 and 24 Volt on board. Freshwater for showering and cleaning of the equipment is is available in efficient quantities.
The Dauw Talae anchors nearby great diving spots. One is able to take relaxed diving trips anytime during day and night. If wanted, we will accompany you with our 40 PS dinghy.
