|H20 dive - What’s your preference? Old or the New?

H2O dive, has added two great destinations aboard two excellent, but very different boats.
The Junk – Thailand’s Andaman Sea
If it’s good enough for James Bond it’s got to be worth a look!With over 40 boats now operating in Thailand’s Andaman Sea divers need to make a careful selection to avoid joining an old tub better suited as a wreck dive than a modern liveaboard.
A liveaboard safari aboard The Junk ‘June Hong Chian Lee’ is a unique experience. Not just because she affords access to Thailand’s best diving but also because this vessel, lovingly restored, is herself something special. For the 2007-8 season we have also paid some attention to the itineraries adding an additional night onboard and greater emphasis on the Surin Isles rather than the busier Similans.
Sherazade – Sudan’s Red Sea
This 33m vessel, just a year old, is the newest addition to the small fleet of liveaboard’s operating in the Sudan’s Red Sea. She has been built to a high specification, meeting Bureau Veritas’ class requirements. Her accommodating crew has over 20 years experience and are amongst the most experienced in the Sudan. What’s more equal attention has been paid to guests’ comfort making a liveaboard safari aboard Sherazade a winning combination of comfortable accommodation and some of the Red Sea’s great diving.
H2O’s Daniel Le Merle believes a good tour operator is one that makes your life easier.
‘With the growing popularity of liveaboard diving selecting the right boat for your chosen itinerary is no easy task. We chose Sherazade because she meets the highest standards of safety & experience for diving in the remote Sudan, without forgoing those creature comforts. We chose The Junk just because she is the only way to dive the Andaman Sea!’
