Diving is not Rubys first reason for being but sailing through some of the worlds best dive sites without a glance would be a crime. Our experienced dive master will be happy to show you the wonders of the Andaman Sea under water world.
There is no better platform to dive off than Ruby. She is stable, lots of room to put on and stow your gear and the easiest of entries and exits from the sea level dive steps. We have a top of the line dive 210 L/H compressor that fills a bottle in 8 minutes. This high capacity limits the time the compressor has to run.
We have 6 complete dive sets including BCDs, regulators, wet suits, fins, masks and ten tanks. We are not a specialized dive boat so we must limit the dives to three per day per person. For novices, there is a PADI Open Water course available on the boat give by our PADI certified Dive Instructor. It includes all theory, practice at a suitable beach and four open water dives. The course normally takes four days but can be stretched to accommodate the sailing schedule. It truly is the nicest introduction to diving you can have. Totally personalized, no travel back and forth, real world instruction rather than in a pool with 20 people. Learn at your own pace. More advanced diving courses are also available. Please inquire.
