We booked our liveaboard trip through Siam Dive and Sail. It was so easy, and communication with John was easy as well (he answered all my questions, even the silly ones!) Would definitely use siam dive and sail again!

I met Jihn Williams on a liveaboard over 5 years ago and have ever since used him for all my many dive trips in SE Asia. John knows all the liveaboards and has dived in many of the locations himself so has excellent first hand knowledge of what you can expect to experience in each area. Good friendly communication and... More
