Similans Boat A1

With fantastic diving and snorkeling, frequent runs to the beautiful islands for beach activities and excursions this boat offers excellent value for money for the whole family. With three different cruise options, 2 days/2 nights at the lower Similans, 3 days/2 nights at the upper Similans plus Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock (Surin) or 5 days/5 nights to cover all of the Similan islands, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock (Surin) this boat offers flexibility. At the start and end of the season this boat offers 4 days/4 nights trips to Similans, and weather permitting also Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock (Surin), and in May 3 days/3 nights trip to Koh Bon, Koh Tachai, Richelieu Rock and Boonsung wreck.

Everything on the boat looks good and works, and to maintain that service level the owner of the boat is frequently on board.

She is one of the largest ships in the area, can take 24 guests but takes a maximum of 20 guests to insure there is pleny of space for everyone. The cabins are roomy and neat, have central airconditioning plus a fan, and all cabins have a large window. The master suites have a bathroom en-suite, the other cabins share the bathrooms.

Of all the boats, this is the one that is best suited for a combination of people diving and snorkeling on the same boat.

Departure from Tab Lamu, transfer from Khao Lak and Phuket to Tab Lamu by minibus.
