Aquanauts owns and operates its own dive boat. And now, after a major upgrade in the shipyard, the Aquanauts vessel is the fastest, quietest, most-modern, most-luxurious dive boat in the region.
At 26 meters long, the Aquanauts dive boat has always been Pattaya's largest, most-spacious boat. It's also the most popular.
Aquanauts' boat offers 100% padded seating and sofas, an enclosed galley, dual-ladder dive platform and standard toilets and sinks to the heads. Freshwater is piped all over the vessel, from the showers on the bow to the dive area in the stern so you can wash your gear onboard. All new electrical wiring was installed. Heads have lights and night dives no longer mean a dark ride home.
Here's more detail about the features of the Aquanauts dive boat:
Accommodation: We can comfortably support 35-40 divers without you feeling crowded. The boat has two decks, with plenty of padded chairs, sofas and benches for your comfort. The entire seating area is covered, so you don't have to worry about sunburn or rain dampening your day. Also, both decks are treated with slip-proof texturing to prevent falls.
There are also a half-dozen solidly secured tables for dining or filling our your log books. In the stern you'll find two rows of lounge chairs where many divers are found napping between dives or on the way home.
Sun Deck : Not eveyone wants to spend the day underwater or under the roof. Sun worshippers can go topside to the sun deck on the roof. Access is via wide, solid steps with a railing and railing surrounds the entire sun deck area.
Galley: Aquanauts cooks multi-course Thai and Western meals in an enclosed, on-board galley. Also, the boat offers free cold soft drinks and bottled water.
Freshwater shower and head: When you finish your dive, wash off the salt in our two freshwater showers. The boat also has two heads as comfortable as the toilet in your home. You won't get the typical smelly broken down boat toilet with Aquanauts.
Dive Deck: The lower deck of the Aquanauts boat is devoted to diving, with 100 tanks right on board, a compressor, dive platform, equipment wash area and storage. You won't find any obstacles or obstructions either, so you won't be stumbling over things just go get your gear together and in the water.
On-board compressor: No need to lug heavy tanks to and from the boat. We can fill tanks as we need them.
Dive Platform: As a dedicated dive boat, Aquanauts' vessel offers a spacious dive platform ensures a safe entry for every dive. Treated with a non-slip surface and featuring two access points and two ladders, you'll never have to cue up just to get in our out of the water.

Medical kit: Our medical kit includes sea-sickness pills, and medical oxygen in case of emergencies.
Speed: It takes about 45 minutes to reach the near islands, and 90 minutes to the far islands.
