Diving Thailand onboard 'The Junk' Liveaboard
14th April to 21st April 2018
The Similan Islands in Thailand are thought to have inherited their name from the Malaysian word sembelan, which means nine, as the Similans consist of a grouping of nine granite boulder Islands arranged in a South to North access. All the Islands have Thai names but even your Captain will refer to them by number, starting with Island #1 in the South and finishing ten nautical miles in the North with Island #9. Above the water topography is stunning, lush vegetation topping the Islands gives way to granite boulders or white sandy beaches, surrounded by clear blue water. But it is what lies beneath the water that allows the Similans to lay claim to being one of Thailand and Asia's top scuba diving liveaboard destinations.
About 'The Junk'
The Junk liveaboard is completely renovated and can carry 18 divers. We have 2 private cabins with double bed, 2 three berths cabins (can be sold as so called Shared Twins and can also be turned into a Private Double Bed) and 2 four berths cabins (which are all bunks but can also be sold as Shared Twin). All our cabins are fully air-conditioned and have their own hot water shower and en-suite toilet.
People have been choosing Thailand for amazing diving experiences for over 20 years now because it has some of the clearest, coral filled waters in Asia, the water is warm year round and the marine life is prolific. The Andaman Sea side of Thailand offers the best diving. This area covers the west coast of Thailand from the border with Burma right down to the border with Malaysia. Here we find Koh Phuket, Koh Phi Phi, Krabi, the Similan Islands, Surin Islands, Richelieu Rock, Koh Bon and Koh Tachai. These are the very best dive sites in all of Thailand and the Andaman Sea.
