Similans liveaboards, diving with The Junk - by Thailand Liveaboards (www.thailand-scuba.com), your personal Thailand liveaboard diving adviser.

Similans Boat D4

If you are looking for a truly unique liveaboard experience, this is your answer. A classic junk, previously used to transport wood, now restored to her old glory to serve as a liveaboard in the Phuket area. Completely renovated to meet today's divers expectations, including Nitrox, this boat offers a luxurious and unique diving trip to the Similans, Koh Bon. Koh Tachai, Richelieu Rock and the Surin Islands.

With a choice of cabins, all with bathrooms en-suite, and of course all modern safety and navigation equipment, this is something different from all other liveaboards. Spacious, comfortable and unique.

Departure from Phuket, transfer from Khao Lak and your hotel on Phuket is not included in the trip price. We can arrange this for a very reasonable fee.
