Life on a Tiger Beach liveaboard is informal and relaxing, comfortable and clean. While enjoying your solitude, you will encounter a stress-free atmosphere where dressing down is encouraged and world news is only in the back of your mind. The days are spent experiencing nature and our nights are spent anchored under the stars. We avoid the tourist traps unless requested.
