We have been operating in Phuket, Thailand since 2007. Phuket is the centre of dive operations for liveaboards to the Similan Islands and Richelieu Rock. The Similans have become very popular in the last 20 years with boats to suit all budgets. Also operating from Thailand there are a smaller number of liveaboards heading to the Mergui Archipelago in Myanmar. 

If you want to experience the best diving in Thailand or Burma, you’re in the right place.

Thailand Liveabords - Similan Islands

The astounding Similan Islands are known for their abundant undersea life, beautiful surroundings, frequent sightings of whale sharks and manta rays as well as sightings of unusual fish. The dive sites offer great walls, swim-throughs, amazing rock formations and lots of soft and hard corals. Many divers think of the Similan Islands as one of the best dive sites in the world.

Please note, Similan Island, Surin Islands and Burma Liveaboards only operate between mid October and mid May only. The Similan and Surin Islands are closed for diving outside this period. That is because the Westerly winds during that time of year make the conditions there rough. This is when the winds are changing, when we can get the biggest storms and the most rain. The weather settles down in November, and will remain mostly calm and dry all the way through to April. 

The Similan Islands are protected by Thai government and are a marine sanctuary park for protection of corals and fish. All visitors to the Similan Islands and Richelieu National Parks must pay a park fee, and divers pay a little extra.
