Two dives. One day. An experience to remember.
We only work with dive boats that are equipped for the worst-case scenario - life vests, first-aid kit, emergency oxygen and other safety equipment which should be onboard every boat in the Similan Islands.
When you book with us, you will be picked up at your hotel in the morning of your dive trip. You also get the cell phone number of our manager, Jamie or owner Kulan – just in case. Because we use a variety of companies for our guests on Similan Islands diving day trips you can choose how you wish to travel. Some people prefer to get out there quick via speedboat while others would prefer a gentle cruise and enjoy the scenery.
We handle all your booking needs and equipment details so you don't have to worry about it. All prices have no hidden extras and in fact you sometimes pay less if you've bought some equipment with you which is a bonus when diving the Similan islands.
However you choose to go once you reach your Similan Island dive site you'll have a full on safety briefing as well as a briefing on the site you're about to dive. We dive with a ratio of 4/1 guests to guides for maximum comfort and safety and people are placed together depending on experience and certification level.
The Similan Islands are home to some of the best dive sites in Thailand and whether you want to swim with mantas at Koh Bon or find those elusive whale sharks at Richelieu Rock.
After your first Similan Islands dive, it’s lunch time with buffet style Thai and international dishes, and after a break it’s time for you to get wet again.
On the way back to shore after your second dive, you can relax in the lounge, write your log book, work on your tan on the sundeck – or exchange dive stories with the other guests. A taxi will then bring you back to your hotel.
We are always happy to receive feedback about your Similan Islands diving and really enjoy it when guests stop by at our shop to tell us about their dive trip.
If you continue your diving in Thailand, we are happy to recommend dive centers in other locations that are at the same high standards as us.
