Here is where we post articles which may be of interest to anyone who is interested in diving in the Similan Islands. From time to time we are able to offer substantial discounts for last-minute bookings or well in advance. In addition, there’s season-long information that can enable divers and potential divers to better understand their different options. This isn’t just about being in the water, either. Some people like to travel on a budget, and others like to pay for minimum inconvenience. We try our best to give as many details as possible in order for those wanting to dive in the Similan Islands to make the best decision that suits their needs. Finally, there is a section for relevant news topics which may affect (or not) the diving situation in and around the Similan Islands. It’s not uncommon for those in other countries and continents to hear something on the news and worry (or not) unnecessarily. Our news section is impartial and honest at all times.
We have several boats which are offering ‘Early Booking Discounts’ for the upcoming Similan diving liveaboard season. The diving season begins in mid-October, and runs through to the middle of May. Some of the boats have a discount for trips throughout the season but a booking date deadline. Others offer discount for booking 3 months before departure.
Another Thailand diving season has come to an end. For some, this 2016-17 season was not as good as past years, but for us it was another record-breaking success. The main reason for the season being less successful for some was almost certainly the weather, which has been hit-and-miss throughout Thailand since October. However for us, any negative effects caused by the weather were more than counterbalanced by the ever-increasing number of divers who chose to book through us either for the first time or as repeat customers.
Every year there are diving exhibitions around the world, and Thailand’s is TDEX (Thailand Dive Expo). It’s held each year in the middle of May, starting on a Thursday and finishing on a Sunday. TDEX 2017 was really busy, and there were lots of potential diving tourists, traders and vendors offering promotions, and some awesome discounts.

A member of our team recently went on a wonderful 4D4N Similan liveaboard diving trip on the extremely-popular Sawasdee Fasai. April 21st-25th 2017 was when Jamie was lucky enough to join a trip on one of our favourite diving liveaboards, and he enjoyed a fantastic dive safari to The Similan Islands, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai & Richelieu Rock. The whole experience was made great by the people involved as much as the diving and the boat itself.
Sawasdee Fasai has been launched! This fully-renovated luxury diving liveaboard offers 4D4N cruises to the best dive sites of Thailand. Many trips are fully-booked, but there are still some spaces left on this huge dive boat between now and May 2017. Be quick, and grab your space!

After several years as one of the very best Similan diving liveaboards, MV Pawara’s trips are nearly always full. Customers must book far in advance to avoid disappointment. To keep everyone happy, Pawara now has a sister ship; the slightly larger and equally luxurious MV Sawasdee Fasai (meaning ‘Hello Clear Sky’ in English).
The Similan & Surin Islands National Parks are now closed for the low/monsoon season until October 15th 2016. Similan Diving Tours, our partners, and our guests have just enjoyed & wonderful, enjoyable and record-breaking season. Thank you, everyone for making it possible.
Last week the Similan Diving Tours team went out to visit Koh Tachai, Koh Bon & The Similan Islands, and had a wonderful time on board MV Nemo 1. Our sales and SEO Webmaster teams went along with their families. A great time was had by all - including non-divers and children. As expected, the itinerary went according to plan and all on time.
