We booked a liveaboard to Myanmar via Siam Dive n Sail. John was exceptionally helpful with not only booking the trip itself but to help with any other questions around visa and where to stay in Phuket after the liveaboard. Impressive quick and detailed replies which made our lives so much easier. Highly recommended!

Thanks, Janine, for your very very nice review! It was a pleasure working with you and so happy you had a nice time on the Giamani Liveaboard to Burma/ Mergui. She is a good boat and has a great crew. Glad I was able to assist and I hope you get back to my part of the world soon again.... More

I booked my diving trip to Burma through Siam Dive n Sail. From the beginning John was incredibly helpful, honest and detailed in his communication. I don't have much diving experience and don't own any equipment - John patiently addressed my concerns and gave some great recommendations for equipment. I would highly recommend Siam Dive n Sail for your next... More

All-around fantastic dive-trip!! From the start, John was quick to respond, and honest with advice about diving in the off-season. We had a complicated travel schedule, so we booked a 2-day trip with him, and he helped us find another day-trip boat before that. After enquiring whether it's possible to extend the trip to 3 days, he arranged that too,... More

John was incredibly efficient at answering all my queries. He can also help with organising things like airport transfer and recommending hotels for pre- and post- live aboard. The trip I took on the Dolphin Queen was really well-organised and excellent value for money.

Contacted John at Siam Dive n Sail as I was planning a trip out of Phuket (Similians) or Ranong (Mergui). Even though he couldn't personally offer us anything on the dates we needed, he was hugely helpful with information and even made some inquiries on our behalf. I really respect a company that is willing to give beta and go... More

Siam divers were spot on in their descriptions, travel arrangements and helpfulness. They enabled me to have a perfect 3 day trip in the Andaman Sea, with good food, comfort and experts on hand aboard the Oktavia. I cannot recommend them too highly

Thank you, Shefton, for a nice review. It's not easy to find boats who cater towards snorkelers, but we think we have a great product with the Oktavia Liveaboard. We're so glad to hear you had a great time and I hope we can help you again in the future. See you again one day. Best wishes, John & Bent More
