Our Similan Liveaboard focuses on ethical operations – with locally sourced products, ecologically friendly cleaning agents – even the shampoo we supply is safe fro the environment! And 2% of all revenue goes towards community projects. When you dive with us – you make a difference 🙂

Contact us for more details on our Similan Liveaboard! 

While we are not a luxury boat there are safety features far beyond the norm! We carry a satellite phone, Radar, depth finder and more. Life jackets are in each cabin and most important – a staff and crew that are trained to deal with almost any matter that should arise. This means you can dive in safety and spend your time thinking about all the amazing fish and coral – looking for Manta Rays and turtles or the smallest nudibranchs.

On the liveaboard life is good – perhaps more fun than you would ever expect. Our staff love what we do – and it shows! We play games in the evenings, building a sense of camaraderie that makes our trips an experience – not just a vacation. Between the dives the snacks and meals are top-notch and seem unending…expect to come off the trips a bit heavier than when you started!

Prerequisites/Experience Required

Would you like to join a trip?

The Similan Islands region does have sites for the beginning diver and snorkeler too! (there are some more challenging ones we take the experienced divers to). We try to make time to visit the beaches on Similan Island along our journey. This trip is great for the diver, for the snorkeler and for the whole family! Did you know you can easily do an Advanced Course while on the trip? The cost is incredible and the opportunity priceless!

What's Included

*The trip price includes: Pick up from your hotel (in the Khao Lak area) – transport to the pier and back – full room and board on trip – Organic Cotton towels and linen – tea, coffee, water and electrolytes – tanks and weights – dive guides – lots and lots of delicious food – good times, great memories and lots of fun on the Similan Liveaboards

*The trip price does not include: Pick up from other areas – use of dive equipment (this can be rented for  Baht per day and Includes a dive computer) – soft drinks and beers – Park Fees – or bad attitude

Finally a note about insurance. As always, Wicked Diving and our staff make every effort to assure your safety but there is no way that we can prevent accidents and acts of God. We have continual contact with land and can arrange care for almost any accident or incident that happens – but we may not be near to a facility that can cater to our needs. We recommend Nomads as a very good company designed for these kind of expeditions.
