The underwater worlds at the Similan Islands and the northern islands are incredibly beautiful, and well worth diving. The easiest and most cost-effective way to get there is on a liveaboard safari. A liveaboard is a boat where you dive, eat and relax all day long. Perfect for anyone who likes diving or snorkeling.
We will be doing 3-4 days / nights liveaboard trips to the best dive sites at Similan Islands, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock. The trips leave Tap Lamu pier 8pm after giving a boat briefing and having dinner. The next morning you wake up right at the first dive site. We do four dives each day and two dives on the last day before heading back to Khao Lak. We are back on the last day at 3pm.
We are the proud owners of Mv Vilai Samut. She is a comfortable wooden boat, 26m long and 6m wide, specially designed for liveaboard diving. She has 3 decks, we use the main deck and the upper deck during our trips, the lower deck is off limits and used as the engine room.
Starting at the back of the main deck you’ll find the dive platform and our spacious dive deck, where we also keep the compressor and emergency oxygen. The toilets and showers are here as well as the cabins, all individually air conditioned. At the front of the main deck we have the sun deck and the only place where it is allowed to smoke. We walk up to the upper deck and find our lounge and dinner area. This is where we’ll do the briefings, eat all of the delicious food and where we’re most likely to hang out between the dives. Even when the boat is full there’s always room here to stretch out and you won’t feel crowded.
There are 8 air-conditioned guest cabins onboard, 2 double bed cabins, 5 twin bunk bed cabins and 1 four bunk bed cabins. It is possible to charge cameras and computers in the cabins. There are three bathrooms with shower onboard plus two more showers on the dive platform.
Daily Dive Trips to the Similan Islands, Koh Bon, Richelieu Rock
Our day trips depart for the Similan Islands almost every day. When going elsewhere we turn north for other highlights such as world famous Koh Bon and Richelieu Rock. We reach the Similans and Koh Bon in just over one hour, and Richelieu in two.
