Booked a 3 tank dive. Once we got to the boat was very pleasantly surprised that it was a huge boat with only about 10 divers on it (could easily accommodate 40+). All my equipment was in good condition and the dive-masters were very knowledgeable and professional throughout. Basically - food & drink throughout trip was very good. Boat condition... More

With a great boat, staff, and food, I would highly recommend this as an option for a day trip or a liveaboard. We were very happy with our ship (esp. relative to others in the harbor).

I travel a lot, and many of the conditions I've lived in and around aren't considered that cushy, so I wasn't expecting a ton of luxury. I did pay a decent amount at one time for a 2 day 1 night- 7 dive excursion, $464 USD, which is about $66 a dive, not bad overall considering you get 5 meals... More

My husband and I did a one night live aboard with Siam Divers and I truly hated every moment of our trip! our dive master was unprofessional and he spent most of our dives swimming around in circles. I honestly believe that he was just watching the time waiting for the dive to be over. Three out of our seven... More

Please note that I have rated the dive company average not the diving. I agree with a fellow traveller about giving a true representation of my experience and also agree that some of the great reviews have come from people just starting out diving and in that case any thing would be awesome. I didn't have a terrible journey with... More

I am an experienced diver with an AOW cert and well over 100 dives. I know the ropes on dive boats and am no longer giving glowing reviews when they are not warranted. And this dive boat is a solid "average" and the people who rate it higher don't know enough to see some of the issues happening right in... More

My boyfriend and I participated in the two day, one night diving experience to the Similan Islands. It was hands down one of the best expreriences of my time in Thailand, and while traveling in general. The staff were absolutely amazing, so helpful, kind and amicable. The diving was terrific, the fish and dive sites beautiful. We loved our guide... More

We have just got back from a two night trip on Somboon 4 to the Similians and Richelieu Rock. We really enjoyed our time on this trip. The boat was nice and clean, the food was delicious, the staff onboard were really friendly and helpful. The area for getting ready for your dives does get a bit crowded but you... More

We just returned from a GREAT 3-day/2 night trip on a South Siam Liveaboard boat. In that short amount of time, SSD made sure we had the opportunity to dive 11 times (with 2 wonderful dive masters, Pui and Suwat), spend time on a beautiful, remote island beach, visit with wonderful guests and staff, eat great meals, take hot showers,...
