Tradition, comfort & flexibility

Accommodation on board Thailand and Myanmar’s most iconic diving liveaboard.

The Junk proudly presents: her sister boat The Phinisi, officially known as ‘Cheng I Sao’. From November 2018 onwards, The Phinisi (pronounced: Pinisi) operates liveaboards in Thailand and Myanmar with 2 different itineraries: 7 and 10 night dive cruises.
While a remarkable history and character unites the two yachts, The Phinisi complements The Junk by offering various itineraries in Thailand and an exciting new destination: the Mergui Archipelago in Myanmar!
