Me and my girlfriend recently did an overnight diving trip with South Siam Divers to the Similan Islands (aboard Somboon 3) and had a great experience, worth recommending. Everything was absolutely organized and very well planned, with me being able to participate on all seven dives offered in the overnight trip. The briefings were thorough and provided me with all...

I have done a couple a liveaboards but this one was a bit disapointing... First, the welcoming at the harbour's office was quite cold. Then, the boat is actually cruising somewhere in the sea and you join it with at least 2h of speedboat which is obviously not the liveaboard spirit. Getting on the boat, you cannot check in before...

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.

My husband and I did a day trip which included 3 dives. Very nice choices as we got a wreck dive, a wall dive and a dive that included thousands of fish and beautifully colored coral. South Siam's boat was had ample room for the divers....never felt crowded. The trip was very organized and our dive instructor Ian was awesome.... More

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!
