Manta Rays & Whale Sharks!
Phuket scuba diving day trips & PADI courses are available 365 days. The Similan liveaboards season however runs from October through to May. All tourism including scuba diving, is prohibited in the Similans National Marine Park from mid-May to mid-October. Primarily, the reason for the closure is to enable the Similans to benefit from a restful break from the effects of tourism. This enables the Similan Islands to remain pristine & healthy. A secondary reason for the closure during monsoon season is for tourists safety. The Similans are several hours by boat from the mainland, and occasional unpredictable storms can develop with little warning, which could be hazardous for small boats crossing to or from the islands.
NO CREDIT CARD SURCHARGES!
Scuba Diving Phuket caters to guests specific Similan Islands scuba diving needs & requirements. We prioritize offering excellent customer service before making profits. Our Similan Liveaboards section is managed by a small dedicated team of PADI professionals who have been working together in the Phuket scuba diving and Similan liveaboard industry since 2001. Our years of combined knowledge & many personal contacts in the Similan liveaboards industry gives us a distinct advantage when it comes to dealing with customer requests like refunds for late cancellations, or other similar unforeseen problems our guests may encounter while booking a Similans liveaboard.

Reasons to Consider a Similans Liveaboard!
The Similan Islands have been voted one of the top ten scuba diving destinations in the world for both above & below water beauty.
Best Scuba Diving in Thailand!
Similan scuba diving day trips don’t come close to offering the same standard of scuba diving experienced from a Similans liveaboard.
Mantas & Whale Sharks!
Similan liveaboards offer the best chance to scuba dive with giant manta rays & whale sharks in Thailand. Manta rays can often be found cruising around Koh Bon & Koh Tachai. In the Similan Islands whale sharks can make surprise appearances just about anywhere, but are frequently spotted at Koh Tachai & Richelieu Rock.
Exciting Dive Sites!
Similan liveaboards offer world class scuba diving at a relaxed pace. Most Similan liveaboards include scuba diving at Richelieu Rock, Koh Bon & Koh Tachai. Check our Similan liveaboard pages for liveaboard itineraries, or contact us.
Reduce Other Expenses!
Save on other expenses! Similan liveaboard prices include accommodation and food, so save money on hotel & other expenses you’d incur if you were staying in Phuket. How much would it cost for four nights in a Phuket hotel, plus other expenses like food, etc? When looking at a four night Similans liveaboard, remember this is what you’ll save as all accommodation & food is included.

Why Choose Us For Your Similans Liveaboard Experience?
Our Similan liveaboard experts each have close to twenty years of hands on experience from working within the Similan Islands & Thailand scuba diving industry.
We are not a booking agent based overseas with no experience of the Similans Islands scuba diving industry. We are physically based in Phuket. We are partnered with a PADI 5 Star Dive Centre in Phuket. We are registered with the T.A.T. (Tourism Authority of Thailand).
All Similan liveaboard inquiries we receive are handled professionally & in detail by our small but dedicated team of experts. We know the ins and outs of every Similans liveaboard operator, which means we can give the best advice which is both honest and current. We know if certain operators have a history of cancelling trips at the last minute, and which operators don’t.
We have a fast email response time. When we receive your email, we will reply to it. We also provide our personal phone numbers & are available on Whatsapp Messenger..
Our priority is to provide a refreshingly high level of customer sevice. If for any reason one of the Similan liveaboards we represent falls short of the high standards we expect of them, we will stop offering them to our guests. If you ask us for some liveaboard options, you can be sure they have high standards of customer service, & safety.
We offer a streamlined & simple booking proceedure. We can access booking databases for many of the Similan liveaboards we work with, enabling us to check availability, and reserve & book spaces onto liveaboards, something which is important if trips are almost fully booked.
We promise ZERO credit card surcharges on any payments made to us! Other agents may claim this too, but what they usually fail to mention is that although the deposit you pay to secure a booking will be free from credit card surcharges, if the remaining balance payment is payable directly to the liveaboard operator, it will be subject to a credit card surcharge of up to 5%. We don’t agree with credit card surcharges, & we are the only liveaboard agent which offers guests an option to pay any remaining balances directly to us, to avoid paying credit card surcharges.
The equipment we provide our liveaboard guests is replaced regularly, and well maintained. We can also provide comfortable fins on request, which are worn with booties (Not available from other agents or dive centres). Guests can request these fins with booties at no additional cost. We can also provide long wetsuits on request, although we recommend shorty 3mm wetsuits in Thailand’s tropical waters.
If guests make a late cancellation to a liveaboard booking, invariably liveaboard operators & other agents will quote their terms & conditions for bookings & cancellations, & any payments received are usually forfeited. If guests booking with us should make a late cancellation, we will always make a concerted effort to resell the cancelled spaces on the guests behalf. If we are sucessful in reselling a guests spaces from a late cancellation, we will return whatever percentage of the guests payment possible we can. We cannot guarantee we can resell spaces from late cancellations, but we will try hard, where other agents wouldn’t.
Above all, we care more about customer service than we do about profits. We take pride in always going the extra mile so our guests return to us year after year!
