The trip was well organised and the dive instructors were fun. At four dives a day, the workload was high (which is what I wanted) but the energy was maintained by the crew. The boat was basic, but you don't really need anymore. The crew also moved the dives around to get away from the crowds, which was good as... More

Firstly, thanks to Paul, who I sadly never got to meet, but was a very competent member of the office staff who was very prompt in his e-mail replies and putting everything with the booking at ease. What started out as a great diving experience, unfortunately had its disappointing intervals. The boat throughout the whole 5 days seemed segregated into... More

We choose Similan Diving Safaris based on the TA reviews we read and the competitive pricing. Location of the dives and the food rating lured us to choose Similan Diving Safaris and we are so glad that we did! The guides, boat boys and kitchen staff were a small intimate family that invited us in with open arms. We completed... More

Love the snorkeling and island views. Recommend using this Check-in Andaman company as they have the tour routine down to an art.

Quite disappointed about the reefs and life here at Similan - seen much better elsewhere. The liveaboard (Dolphin Queen) is quite small for the number of guests. The divedeck is pretty cramped and you dont have a lot of places to go on the boat. This is again compared to other liveaboards I have been on. The guide/guest ratio is... More

It was our first liveaboard experience as a couple and it was really really amazing. I wanted to surprise my boyfriend with a birthday cake and the staff arranged it perfectly and we both had a great time. Thank you so much similan diving safaris. Also, the dive sites richelieu rock, surin islands and many other spots were so amazing.
