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

I booked a liveaboard with Siam Dive n Sail and I was extremely happy with the whole organization. John, the owner, and also author of Diving in Southeast Asia, was very helpful and super professional. When booking so far away it's always so reassuring to see that your contact is replying to your emails and answering your phone calls. John's... 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
