Similan Islands Liveaboard Scuba Diving Tour
(14 Dives, 4 Days)


Listed as one of the ten best dive sites on the earth, the Similan Islands are the best diving Thailand has to offer.

Similan Islands National Park (since 1982) is  an archipelago consisting of nine islands named Ko Bon, Ko Bayu, Ko Similan, Ko Payu, Ko Miang, Ko Payan, Ko Payang, and Ko Huyong. Recently, the park was expanded to include two remote islands named Ko Bon and Ko Tachai.

It has typically two different kinds of diving. East side diving consists of gently sloping coral reefs with sandy patches with the occasional boulder in-between. The west side is known for its huge underwater granite boulders with numerous swim-throughs.

The most important of all dive sites in the Similans is Richelieu Rock, famous for its incomparable variety and abundance of marine life. Whale shark sightings are common here. The Similans have the greatest diversity of marine life in Thailand.

Conditions for diving

Conditions for diving are great year-round Рwith 20-30 meter visibility standard. According to the official website, the park is closed in the rainy season from 16 May-31 October yearly. These dates are subject to change.

Best time of the year for diving

Getting to Similan Islands and back is pretty dangerous during monsoons. Monsoons usually occur between May and October. Each year is a little different, but dive trips are available daily from November until Mid-May. The boat departs from Tablamu pier.
