Similan Islands Liveaboards

The Similan Islands have long been established as the best area for diving in Thailand. Liveaboards have been operating since the 1990s heading to the main Similan Island chain, plus Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock to the north. Some trips also stop at the Surin islands about 100km north of Similan. There are many liveaboard options for all budgets and trips from 2 – 10 days departing from Phuket or Khao Lak. Sunrise Divers has been here in Phuket since 1999 and we are the main local agent for many Similan Islands liveaboards.
