Find Liveaboard Diving & Day Trips
Scroll down to see boats

Diving at the Similan Islands is never going to be cheap like it is on Koh Tao, but the rates are a lot lower than many people may expect, especially when you consider all that’s included, and the number of quality dives you will experience. We have a wide range of ‘budget Similan liveaboard boats’ and they all offer great value for divers of all ages and backgrounds to enjoy the best Similan diving experiences. Some people want to look at the trip price when choosing the best option, while others focus on the price per dive. On this page you will find plenty to choose from, and we are always on hand ready to offer advice on which budget boat would best suit your needs. Before thinking that the prices you see may be beyond your budget, think about what is included: A room and all your meals, plus up to 4 dives per day. Consider what you would spend on a hotel and restaurant meals, then add a 2-dive day trip to that. Similan liveaboard diving is a lot more affordable than you may have thought it was.
