Definition: Liveaboard can be used to describe both a dive excursion and a type of boat. A dive trip of at least one night is generally called a liveaboard. Liveaboard dive trips usually last from 3-14 days and involve staying on the boat for the duration of the trip while making up to 5 dives a day. The term is sometimes used to describe the boats that are used for these trips.
