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

We thought we were booking with Andy's Dive shop through our hotel but were picked up by South Siam Divers and realized that the other dive shops just send their supplies and use South Siam Divers for their guest who want to go the Similan Islands. We knew it was a long trip out but it took an extra hour... More

The dive shop was about 1 1/2 hours drive from the hotel. Then 1 hour by speed boat to the dive ship and site. The crew were friendly and safety conscious. We had lunch and drinks on board. We did two dives but they do up to 5 a day if you're staying over night.

Signed up for a day trip for my son and I on the liveaboard at the Similan Islands. Our divemaster Jim (he spoke french) was very impatient and when i did not descend as quickly as he thought I should he added weight and I dropped like a rock. My son has ear issues and he pulled him down and... More

사우스시암 리브어보드 트립을 2박 3일 David Hell을 통해 예약했습니다. 장비, 호텔 픽업 모두 공짜였고 가격적으로는 만족한 트립이었습니다. 리브어보드 생활 자체는 즐겁습니다. 다양한 다이버들과 만날 수 있고 맥주 ( 50바트)를 제외한 모든 음료와 음식, 과일들을 공짜로 즐길 수 있습니다. 그러나 다른 리브어보드와 달리 러셀라우 락을 갈때 빼고는 매일 사람들이 보트에 타고 내리는 시스템입니다. 사람들이 몰릴때는 한 배에 40명이 넘게 있는 데... More

First off, my friend Ez and I booked a 3D3N liveaboard on Boat 4 with Sunrise Divers. Our communication with Jamie had been very clear, especially with the fees for rental equipment and transfers. Kudos to Jamie for that. Imagine our surprise when we stepped into South Siam Divers, and we were asked to pay 500 baht more for our... More
