The 25m MV Similan Explorer is a great option to explore the underwater beauty of the Similan Islands, Thailand. Dive with manta rays at Koh Bon, whale sharks at Richelieu Rock and beautiful reefs at the Surin Islands. Walk on pristine beaches and trek into the jungle as the M/V Similan Explorer takes you on 3 or 5 night adventures to the Similan Islands of the Andaman Sea. The experienced dive guides are more than happy to take requests to find special critters such as seahorses, pipefish and nudibranchs.
The MV Dolphin Queen is a great option for budget liveaboard diving in the Similan Islands and operates 4 Night trips to the Similans, Koh Bon and Richelieu Rock. It is an ideal choice for those with limited time or those on a backpacker budget. No other region offers such a number of excellent sites and such wonderful Scuba Diving as can be found in this protected National Park.
The MV Somboon 3 and her sister ship MV Somboon 4 are budget boats, but they have a big advantage over any other liveboard boat, as they have no fixed schedule, allowing you to choose the day of your depature as well as length of your stay. They are both very large vessels with a lot of space, if the boat is full, which is mostly the case in the high season, it might feel crowded. That mostly affects the people staying for a day or two, as they have to pack and leave at the same time new people arrive by speed boats.
