I was on a trip (3D/3N) from and to Khao Lak on board of the Similan Explorer. We've been to Similan Island, Koh Bon, Ko Tachai and Richellieu Rock (part of the Surin National Park). The whole experience (my first liveaboard) was so exciting that I decided to join the next trip the following day for three more days, which... More

I've been on the Dolphin Queen now SEVEN times in one year. I can't say enough about these guys - Janice, Gabriel, Josu, Mayumi and the incredible crew that does all the cooking and even puts your fins on for you. These guys are like family to me now and the service is out of this world. The food is... More

Spend 3 days with the SDS guys around the Similan Islands and it was the best. Great instructors, super dive spots, fantastic atmosphere on the boat - in total a magnificent experience. You don't even need to bring O2, Ana Cardeña will bring it for you😉

This was by far one of the best trips I have ever had in my life. Similan Diving Safari proved it that they are the best in the business. To start of the staff was just amazing. They have taken care of each and every member on the boat. Very courteous, polite, friendly and professional. Yes, its a rare combination.... More

Just got back last week from an awesome 5D/4N trip aboard the Dolphin Queen to Similan/Richilieu/Koh Bon/Tachai. The trip was great, very well organised with a stellar support crew. The boat was clean and comfortable. Luckily there were just 2 of us in the 4 bed cabin, given the boat was at half load, which made it very comfortable. But... More

We did a 4 night liveaboard on Dophin Queen to the Similans, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock, returning via Boonsung Wreck. The boat is lovely, well maintained and clean. The staff (boat and dive) were all lovely and very helpful. This is a budget boat, so I was pleasantly surprised to have so many snacks, cold and hot... More

Great dive sites, great staff, delicious food! Leopard shark was breath-taking. Took 2-bed twin cabin - good value for the price we paid as we had 2 big shelves for our belongings. There was no Wi-Fi on board which was nice.
