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…If everyone are over 10 years old! Did you know you can easily do an Advanced Course while on the trip? The cost is incredible and the opportunity priceless!
On this Similan Liveaboard dives are planned to a maximum depth of 30m and you must be certified to dive to this depth. The majority of insurance companies will not honor any insurance claim that is made if the customer has dived deeper than the recommended guidelines for their certification level.
Required certification levels include:
- PADI Advanced Open Water Diver (or equivalent)
- PADI Adventure Diver (or equivalent) including the Deep Adventure Dive
- PADI Open Water Diver (or equivalent) plus the Deep Adventure Dive
If you are not certified to dive to 30m and wish to join this liveaboards, we recommend the following options:
1) Take a PADI Deep Adventure Dive (B1,800thb..payable onboard)
This is the easiest option and requires no extra time, as it is conducted during the first dive of your liveaboard trip. This dive is a required dive in the PADI Advanced Open Water course and you will receive credit towards this certification when you complete this dive. You will receive the PADI Deep Dive Speciality manual which is yours to keep and can be used again if you decide to complete the full PADI Deep Dive Speciality course.
2) Upgrade your certification level to PADI Adventure Diver
3) Upgrade your certification level to PADI Advanced Open Water Diver
All can easily be done in conjunction with the trip and will give you far more appreciation for the underwater world!

Finally a note about insurance. As always, Wicked Diving makes 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.
