Me and some friends decided to do a last minute dive trip in Phuket. We went with the Siam Divers since it was one of the first to pop up in a web search. We dove for two days and stayed on board over one night. The things I did not like were that they seemed very business oriented almost... More

I had a 3 nights and 4 days liveaboard diving trip on South Siam 3 from 17th to 21th of Feburary and I had a very disappointing experience with them. It was my third liveaboard trip in Similan. My first time was on Peterpan and the second time was on South Siam 4 and both were very enjoyable, so I... More

We got our diving in at the beginning of our Phuket trip. We stayed in Nai Yang Beach (near the airport) before heading up to the pier to take a speed boat out to the South Siam 3. I mention this because other people on the boat wished they had not gone all the way down to Patong or more... More

I have been on many liveaboard boats before, and I had the WORST experience on the South Siam liveaboard boat. The boat crews were ignorant, rude and unfriendly. They did not care about safety of the divers by mishandling equipments, and they were mishandling the divers’ items as well. On March 1st, a team of 30 Koreans, including myself, boarded... More

This was our first liveaboard experience and we booked with Aussie Divers to spend 4 days 3 nights on Somboon 3. It's a budget option so we didn't have high expectations but it was very nice. Our cabin was clean and comfortable enough, we only went there to sleep anyway. Bathrooms were fine and we never had to wait long... More

booked a 2 day / 1 night liveaborad. First impressions: packed with divers on the boat since they combine the liveaboard guests with daytrip guests. I had nowhere to sit when lunch was served on the boat. Also,- the main dive master "Greg" was rude towards me and other guests. Service: Good. Safety: Bad. Food: Good. Overall impression: worst liveaboard... More

My wife and I had a great time on the 2d/1n live aboard dive trip. We had an amazing cabin and 7 dives including a night dive. Food was decent, they catered to us being vegetarian which was great. Staff were good! Two major things that were bad. Safety is not considered at all. During a night dive they ran... More

I did a couple of day trips with this operator and as an experienced diver I am pretty happy to go budget rather than five star but on these boats many other dive operators without boats join in and that means that the actual number of south slam divers can very small - on both my days only 2-3 divers...
