A liveaboard diving trip is a unique and immersive experience where divers stay on a specially equipped vessel for multiple days, exploring remote and breathtaking dive sites. Unlike day trips, liveaboards allow divers to access more distant locations and spend more time underwater, maximizing their diving opportunities.

  • Access to remote dive sites: Liveaboards can reach secluded areas with pristine marine life, untouched by day-trip divers.
  • More dives per day: With no need to return to shore, liveaboards often offer multiple dives daily, providing more time to explore the underwater world.
  • Enhanced comfort: Onboard amenities, spacious cabins, and delicious meals make the diving experience comfortable and enjoyable.
  • Immersive experience: Living on the boat creates a sense of camaraderie among divers, fostering lasting friendships and memorable experiences.

For Shenron Liveaboard diving trips, we require divers to hold an Advanced Open Water Diver certification or equivalent and a minimum number of 50 logged dives.

Pack essentials for our Shenron liveaboard trip, including:

  • Diving gear: Bring your dive computer, mask, snorkel, fins, wetsuit 3 or 5 mm, and regulators. 
  • Clothing: Casual and comfortable attire for onboard activities and a light jacket for cooler evenings.
  • Toiletries: Personal items, BIO and Reef sunscreen.
  • Travel documents: Passport, dive certification card, and any required permits for specific dive sites.
  • Camera: Don’t forget to bring your camera housing and all the equipment for incredible memories.
