News

Industrial spillages, political turmoil, and unexpected weather conditions are just a few of the news items which may be relevant to diving in the Similan Islands. In addition, there are also many news stories which have no effect whatsoever but worry those who are unaware of all the facts. Sitting back at home wherever you are, it’s very difficult to know if the news you see, read or hear is going to affect your planned trip to the Similan Islands or not. Here is where we post anything which we feel is helpful to those outside of Thailand.


March 4 8 liveaboard dive trip introWe often get invited to join trips on the many Similan liveaboard boats that we offer to our guests. However, it’s not always easy or possible, mainly because the only divers in our company make up our reservations team. Therefore, going offline for more than 24 hours can cause problems. But in March 2018, the Thai school holidays and quiet few days, we managed to hop on board MV Lapat for four days & nights of action-packed fun.

camic schedule change introFrom March 13th 2018 we have a new Camic weekly schedule at Richelieu Rock, Koh Tachai & Koh Bon, plus Sundays at The Similan Islands. The schedule has been changed due to the popularity of the northern dive sites, in particular Richelieu Rock. In addition, Camic’s transfer speedboat will now depart from and return to Baan Nam Khem Pier at 8.30am, instead of Tab Lamu Pier at 8.00am.

Dutch divers group introWe welcome divers from all over the world, and many of our guests come from Europe. For some reason, in November 2017 we have had a lot more divers from The Netherlands than other years. Our most recent was a group of Dutch divers at Similan Islands & Richelieu Rock on Lapat. They were experienced and mostly middle-aged divers who had a great trip on Lapat’s first 4D4N trip of the season.

We attract diving customers from all over the world. Just over half of our guests are from Europe, North America & Australia, but the number of Asian divers is increasing all the time. Asian divers include Thais, Malaysians, Japanese, Chinese and Koreans. It’s always fun to watch or dive with Korean scuba divers at Similan Islands & Richelieu Rock because they’re good divers and they’re very friendly.

Nemo 1 liveaboard introReady for the 2017-2018 southern Thailand scuba diving season, M/V Nemo 1 is our brand-new Similan liveaboard diving boat. After many months of careful planning, preparation, and hard work, the boat is already in the water and ready to start flexible scuba diving trips to the Similan Islands, Koh Bon & Koh Tachai. The whole boat has been designed and built from a clean sheet of paper to offer its guests the best experience and value. We visited the all-new Nemo 1 on October 3rd 2017 and were delighted to see that everything is ready and on schedule.

Donald Duck Bay Similan Islands Metcalfe and Clayton families introAnother 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.

Thailand dive expo 2017 introEvery 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.

Sundeck in sunset Sawasdee Fasai diving liveaboardA 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.
