Similan Islands Liveaboard Trips to The Similan Islands & Richelieu Rock

Liveaboard diving at the Similans is the pinnacle of scuba diving in Thailand. Going out to sea for overnight trips or longer is the perfect way to explore the reefs of Thailand’s Andaman Sea, around Mu Koh Similan & Mu Koh Surin National Marine Parks. These areas include the 9 islands of the Similan mini-archipelago, plus Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock. Liveaboard scuba diving here is the best way to enjoy the dive sites because there are so many of them, and day trip diving involves too much travelling for too few dives. We have the widest selection of Similan liveaboard boats, ranging in trip length from overnight to a week long, and from the lowest budget to the highest in luxury.

manta-queen-2-dive-boat

MV Manta Queen 2 is a fantastic option for divers who want to visit the best diving spots in Thailand, and get the best value for money. The boat does not visit the Similan Islands on the 3D/3N 11-dive trips, but instead goes directly further north to Koh Bon, Koh Tachai & Richelieu Rock. On the way back to Khao Lak, she stops off at one or two wrecks for divers to get some more exciting time underwater. Manta Queen 2 is 23 metres long and 5 metres wide, and can easily withstand the weather and sea conditions during the diving season.
