Similan Islands Day Trips – Dive or Snorkel

Not enough time for a Liveaboard Cruise?
Two dives – One day – An experience to remember.

If you are short on time but still want to experience the great diving and snorkeling the Similan Islands have to offer then look no further – we have a number of Similan Islands Day Trip options for you!

Whilst our own boat, MV Oktavia, does not cater for day trips – due to the fact that she is dedicated to servicing our weekly liveaboard cruises – we can, however, offer you great alternatives with one of our trusted colleagues here in town.

Out of the many operators that travel to the Similan Islands for diving and snorkeling day trips, we only use a select four that we work closely with to ensure the best experience for you!

At Oktavia Dive Center we are upfront with all our information and prices we quote you are fully inclusive  with NO HIDDEN EXTRAS!

Pre-Book to Avoid Disappointment

Despite the number of operators who cater for diving and snorkeling day trips to the Similan Islands, finding a trip that suits your timescale can be very difficult at peak holiday times. It is not uncommon for keen water lovers to arrive in Khao Lak during the Christmas and New Year periods only to find that all the day trip vessels are fully booked. For this reason we strongly recommend that you pre-book your trip with us prior to arriving in Khao Lak.  Simply choose your favoured Similan Island day trip from the options below and send us an email. We will handle all your booking needs and equipment details so you don’t have to worry about it. All our prices have NO HIDDEN EXTRAS, and in fact you sometimes pay less if you’ve bought some equipment with you.

Dive Locations

Our colleagues run their trips every day of the Open Season and so we should always be able to find you the trip that suits your needs and wishes.

Day Trips to the Similan Islands, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai, and Richelieu Rock are all available and each of our chosen operators provide a slightly different service, which gives you options on how you would like to travel on your Similan Island Day Trip. Some people prefer to get there quickly via speedboat while others prefer a gentle cruise on a larger boat to enjoy the scenery.

The Similan Islands are home to some of the best dive sites in Thailand, so whether you want to swim with mantas at Koh Bon, hope to find those elusive whale sharks at Richelieu Rock, or bump into the barracuda Beacon Reef, our colleagues will always strive to give you a great day out.

Once your booking has been confirmed it’s then just a case of visiting our shop by 3pm the day before your trip to fill out forms and get sized up for equipment.  All our bookings include a pick-up and drop-off from your hotel in the morning of your dive trip, so once we have met you at our shop there really isn’t anything else to think about.  Lunch and Refreshments, along with your Equipment Rental and National Park Fees are also included in our prices, so please click the Contact Us link below and we’ll be happy to send you Day Trips options for your chosen dates.
