The way day trip diving operations seems to work in Phuket is you pay a dive company to arrange your trip with a divemaster, and they find you a spot on a dive boat which is usually operated by a different company. So although we booked a tour with a different operator, we ended up diving on a South Siam... More

I had a 3 day 2 night stay in mid December 14 on the South Siam 4, the boat is fantastic, the food is really good and the staff are great. A little confusion on the first day with payment nearly soured the trip, apparently the booking agent I had booked with had not given all the money to the... More

We had 3 drives with great instructors. We saw a sea turtle. My wife booked a snorkling ticket but there were no other to accompany her. At one of the dive sites it was not allowed to snorkel.. It was good for diving but terrible for snorkeling.

I did a three-dive day which included the King Cruiser site. The dive master was Ian - a top guy, very informative and has been diving the area for years. It was a good day, and I enjoyed the sites and the service. The boat is huge and well set-up. Good catering, a proper coffee machine. Dive gear also in... More

tl;dr - If you want a controlled dive trip with guides that will photograph everything for you and the ability to decide what day you arrive/leave, might be for you. Otherwise, I suggest you go elsewhere. I booked with South Siam Divers at the last minute. The flexibility in the way they shuttle divers out and back any particular day... More

As a first time diver I was a kinda nervous, but the whole crew made the dives very enjoyable. Adam (my dive instructor) was very patient and encouraging and made my whole experience amazing. Would recommend South Siam Divers to anyone!

With my family we did a 1 - day diving trip to Koh Racha Yai and it was way better than I expected. All day long someone was taking care of us, explaining everything step by step and smiling :)) Food was included and it was really tasty! Then we got a really friendly instructor who introduced all the diving... More

Dived on a 1 day trip with.They had their LOB ship available which was really good because the waves were crazy high there were only 3 boats out for dives on the day. Even with the LOB, quite a few OWC divers were very seasick despite taking the seasick pill. I had a local DM (Pui)to myself and I must... More
