Nice Sized Live Aboard, Competent Staff

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... read more

First time liveaboard so not much to compare with but what I did not like are : 1. No freshwater to soak and rinse off my dive equipment BCD,Regs,Wetsuit etc. Freshwater available only to rise dive computer and camera , I assume because they own and hire this equipment out. 2. Food was OK at best 3. Safety consideration for... More

I think I was at the same time on the diving trip like Anna K ("The worst service ever."). I can confirm her described experience. I booked the tour to King Cruiser, Shark Point and Koh Dok Mai in a travel agency. First of all the boat is big, new and looks quite good. Also the dive equipment is in... More

I am sure, the guyes planned the day not like this. We didn't dive with them, our dive center just used their boat. By King Cruiser we had really strong current and the boat dropped us off just 200-300 meters behind the line, which we should have used to go down. It meant, 200-300 meters swimming against strong currents. Normally... More

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
