Similan liveaboard - diving with manta rays
Manta Ray – from this Similan Liveaboard
  • Great fun for everyone
  • Really good diving & snorkeling
  • Visit the best dive sites in the region
  • Several cabin options from Dorm to Ensuite
  • Feel Secure with our maniacal focus on safety

The Similan Liveaboard focuses on YOUR safety. No need to push the limits or take risks, the diving is amazing, the service is top notch.

While we are not a luxury boat there are safety features far beyond the norm!  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, very good – perhaps more fun than you would ever expect. The staff love what they do – and it shows! Join in socialising around the main tables, stretching out on a sun mattress, swinging in a hammock, cooling down in your air-conditioned cabin or lounging in a bean bag. 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

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!
