South Siam 3
How do we do it?
Our liveaboard boats stay around the Similan Islands for the season, unlike other liveaboard boats that travel from and to Phuket on fixed schedules. We transfer new guests to our liveaboard boats by minibus and speedboat every day of the week.
No fixed schedules! Stay as long as you want !
You tell us how long you would like to stay on our liveaboard boat when you book. 1 day, 2 days or 10 days... up to you!
You can also extend your stay if you want,just check with the tourleader if we still have space available. On the last day of your liveaboard trip we transfer you back to Phuket again by speedboat and minibus.
We come and collect you from your hotel lobby. In one of our air conditioned mini buses, and transfer you up North to Thap Lamu pier where one of our high powered speedboat will be waiting to transfer you to the liveaboard.
Once you are at Thap Lamu there will be a short time to have some freshly prepared breakfast whilst our staff load all your luggage onto the speedboat, when they have packed everything on it is time to climb on-board and watch the amazing scenery on the way out to the liveaboard.
When the speedboat arrives alongside the liveaboard your divemaster will be there to greet you and give you a quick tour of the liveaboard and your cabin etc. Then it is time to gear up and jump of the boat of the liveaboard for your first amazing underwater experience in the Similan National Marine Park.
On the first day you will do 3 open water day dives to your depth limitation, and then the final dive of the day will be a night dive.
Between the first and second dive a hot buffet lunch will be served, a great time to discuss with your fellow divers and the divemaster what you saw on the dive etc.
After the night dive dinner will be served and time to enjoy the peaceful Similan Islands on a deck chair on the sun deck.
All the dives you do on the liveaboard will all be fully supervise by your personal divemaster.
