Excellent two night stay with South Siam Divers

We were on boat #3 and it was in excellent shape. The food was also VERY good! We were able to squeeze in 11 dives in 3 days, including a night dive. Since you have to take a... read more

We chartered on their boat #4 with another dive company (Bangtao Dive Center) and thought this operation was very good. We had our own dive master through Bangtao Dive Center, but their dive masters seemed very good also. Very professional and kept the groups separate. They were very good at getting the groups in as slightly staggered paces so we... More

We have tried several day-trips with three different operators during the week. I would say this one was the least satisfying. The crew and the dive leader were very nice, nothing to complain about them. However the boat was the smallest and the most packed one among the ones that we have tried. Also the slowest one, the journey took... More

I went with South Siam Divers on two trips - both to the same group of dives, The first dy was unfortunate as we ended up missing the third dive after King Cruiser (Shark Point Dive 3) as we had done 16 minutes deco stop, This was in part down to the briefing - I either missed or wasn't told...

Spent 4D3N on SS4 from 28-31 Oct. Diving the Similan Islands and Richelieu Rock. Diving is well planned and organized. Staff are friendly. Food is good. No rush in diving as there are less than 10 divers every day (perhaps its not peak season yet). Adequate toilet facilities. The DM are excellent. Avoiding more current and make the dive pleasant....

Booked for a day trip to King Cruiser. The guide was thorough in his briefings, letting us know what the plan was and giving us details about the sites. The boat was fine, but there was no vegetarian food available, which meant I was limited to toast and jam for the day. The diving was the main disappointment for me.... More

Took their boat for a dive in Phuket, what was supposed to be an hour of boat ride took them 3 since they wanted to conserve fuel . Service on boat was terrible and the staff are unfriendly at most!! Never diving with these idiots again

Would advise doing a livaboard before doing this one. We didn't know what we were doing when we got on the boat or what to even expect. Felt rushed, which is understood because the whole purpose is to be underwater but still felt like cattle. Couldn't get into our rooms right away because they book other people one right after...

We were on boat #3 and it was in excellent shape. The food was also VERY good! We were able to squeeze in 11 dives in 3 days, including a night dive. Since you have to take a "fast boat" to the actual dive boat (about an hour boat ride each way), I would suggest staying at least one night.... More

I came to Phuket specifically for diving in the similans and this couldn't be the worst choice I made. I went thru Santana divers and everything about the trip was bad. They showed up 30 mins late and since they asked me to be ready by 6am, it took valuable sleeping time away. The ride to ferry terminal was in... More
