Dolphin Queen

M/ V Dolphin Queen

Our live-aboard, M/V DOLPHIN QUEEN has a wooden mono hull, comprising off 3 decks.
The main deck has 6 cabins, 2 Double bed, 3 Twin Berth and one 4 berth cabin. Our twin cabins and 4 berth cabin are fitted with curtains for each bed for guest's privacy.

Each year in the low season the Dolphin Queen is put into dry dock for a complete overhaul which includes hull, engines and generators. Also our compressors, diving equipment and tanks are serviced by certified technicians before the start of the season.

All cabins have their own air conditioner and a sea view window that opens. Each of our cabins has 220v plug sockets, so you can charge your battery packs or your dive torch.

The upper deck has 2 Double bed cabins, these are our sea front cabins where you are welcomed each morning with a view of the ocean and the islands when you open the cabin door. These are the only cabins where you can switch off the air con and enjoy the cool night's seabreeze.

The wheel house (captains quarters) can be found at the front (bow) of the boat. At the rear (stern) is the dining area, where you can help yourself to coffee, tea, toast, water, electrolyte sachets and fresh fruit which is always on the table for your convenience.
