These dive trips are very good, the staff are friendly and work very hard to make sure you can relax on your way to the dive spot and have all the gear ready for you to don. The dive location was great too, with plenty of fish, moray eels, cray fish and a variety of marine life unique to this... More

We recently spent a few days diving with South Siam on a Similan liveaboard. Pros: -The Similans are among the most beautiful diving locations we've ever encountered. The shear amount and variety of sea life at many of the sites was unbelievable. -The "boat boys" who took care of running and sailing the boat were great and a lot of... More

I really enjoyed the experience of diving for 4 days with this liveaboard. The places they take you are amazing (I took the trip to Richelieu rock). They were very well organized, the food was excellent and the whole atmosphere very joyful! I also took the advance course during this trip and I would highly recomment my instructor, Timos Theologis.

Did my advance there and my diving instructor Timos Theologis was remarkable. He guided me and my sister safely through those 11 dives and showed us many sea creatures that we couldn't spot! He was patient and conscientious in coaching me. He was akin to a father to us during the trip! Thumbs up! He boat man was really helpful... More

A friend and I recently returned from a Similans liveaboard with South Siam Divers. We had a really mixed experience on the trip. I’ve dived on many liveaboards over the last twelve years and I liked South Siam’s model of leaving their boats at the Similans and transferring their passengers out by speedboat. This allows for flexibility and means that... More

The crew and on their liveaboard Samboon #3 were second to none. They assisted my wife with getting to and from the dive step. She is now spoiled by having the boys make her entry ands exits effortless. The food prepared was marvelous! There is no better way to dive than on a liveaboard.

Although the a little chaotic getting on board. Dive brief. Preparation dive master and dive leader. Pepe. Was excellent. Racha ya not the best site. However good for us as a check dive. Plenty of sea life. Great value for money.

The boat wasn't bad (#3, #3 and #4 are the same exact layout and frequently overlap), the food was really good to great, the staff was great (friendly and helpful), but the dives were AMAZING.

We booked a dive trip for just 2 dives at Raya Island via phukettravelcompany.com. Hence, relatively a good pricing based on compared to anything else I tried looking online, but while them being a agent, the choice of operator was at their mercy. Which we ended up with boat 2 of South Siam Divers. The trip makes up of different... More

The bad first. Smelly room, but we were allowed to move, problem solved. My diving guide, a freelancer didn't speak much English, but friendly and great arty spotting animals. They ask for 30% deposit, through PayPal, and quote prices in Thai baht, yet their PayPal setup only allows you to pay in USD, with a hefty premium of approx. 600... More
