MV Similan Explorer Liveaboard

Similan Explorer Liveaboard Features and Benefits

A liveaboard trip onboard MV Similan Explorer will be a treasured memory for life. She visits the Similan Islands, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock in Thailand with three and four-day itineraries.

The MV Similan Explorer is 26 meters (85 ft) in length and 5.5 meters (17 ft.) in width. She has a total of eight cabins: two double bed cabins, four twin bed cabins for two persons and two quad cabins for four persons. There are three bathrooms with hot showers on the boat (i.e. the bathrooms are down the hall and shared.)

We cater to both experienced and inexperienced divers on all of our trips as the dives are guided.
We take that into account when planning your dives and we assign each diver or pair of divers into groups with similan experience levels. Most of the dives are drift or pinnacle dives so thanks to the dinghy you wont have to do any long surface swims.

We dive the best dive sites in the area based on conditions that day. We normally do four dives each day except on the last day where we do two dives before we head back to Khao Lak. Please see our itinerary for more details.
