MV Bavaria is a brandnew steel vessel, 28 m long and 6,5 m wide. Planned and designed by Markus Egginger, the owner of Loma Diving Adventure. Based on 15 years  of liveabaord experience he knows exactly what divers need and expect.

3- to 6-days-trips will show you the best and most beautiful divesites of Thailand (Similan Islands, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai, Richelieu Rock and Surin Islands), 7-days-trips will  bring you to Myanmar in the still widely unknown Mergui Archipelago. The group size is 4 – 6 divers plus diveguide.

The MV Bavaria was built in Thailand according to the newest ocean-going and safety standards. All guests are accommodated in spacious, comfortable cabins with individual airconditioning. The vessel offers 2 Standard Cabins, 8 Comfort Cabins with own bathroom and 2 Deluxe Cabins with big double bed. The maximum number of guests is 24. All cabins are held clean during your stay aboard by our crew. Friendly staff and an excellent kitchen will provide a very pleasant stay during the safari.

With our many years of experience operating liveaboard scuba diving vacations amongst the beautiful tropical islands of Thailand and Myanmar (Burma) we promise you the best scuba diving available in all of the destinations we visit.
You just have to relax and enjoy your diving.
