Boutique Burma liveaboard
Giamani takes just 10 divers so you are assured of space and personal service on the boat and underwater. Giamani is a strong, reliable craft with all safety features in place, this is the type of boat that you want to be on in such a remote region as Burma. Built to IMO standards, Giamani was converted into a diving liveaboard in 2007 and has proved very popular with divers who prefer diving in small groups.
Giamani’s Burma trips include more than just the southern Mergui archipelago, the itinerary also includes Black Rock.
Ricardo, the multi lingual tour leader is on of the best dive guides around, he takes his guest’s comfort and enjoyment seriously.
“About the boat Giamani and the crew I can only be ravingly positive.
Extremely well organised, super personal service (almost embarrassing sometimes), great crew and super dive guides.
Ricardo is the face of the team, but the whole crew deserves a big thumbs up.” Full review on TA
