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.

Good friendly communication and... More

Hi Paul, Thanks for your great review, we do appreciate it! Too bad we haven't had a chance to dive together since we first met, but you've certainly had some adventures yourself since then. Glad we could be a part of it. Have a great time in Raja Ampat and I hope to see you out here again in Thailand... More

John and Bent know all the boats... More

I recently came home from a liveaboard-trip to Thailand. I booked through Siam dive n sail and got a lot of help and tips from John! I can highly recommend Siam dive n sail and I will use their services again when it’s time for another trip in this area!

We were on liveaboard - Oktavia. It was very good, and we have enjoyed our stay and diving. Siam Sail & Dive has provided us a lots more information than we need before booking for Oktavia, and we were impressed. The liveaboard staffs were very friendly. The arrangement for transferring us back to our resort was chaotic, but overall we... More
