Day Trip Diving Similan Islands
The Similan Islands National Park is well established and is one of the best dive locations in Asia. Day trips are good for those who lack the time or money to do a liveaboard cruise but still want the experience of great diving at the Similans. Similan Islands daytrips are available from November until April. The Sundancer day trip catamaran departs from Khao Lak to the Similan Islands. Transfers are included from Khao Lak area only.
