True paradise islands, clear water and powder soft sand. The tour operator, Sea Star, seems to have mostly Chinese tourists but we also had an English speaking guide named Emily who was fantastic. The only downside is that the reefs are not in perfect health...More

We travelled out with Check-in Andaman who were excellent. The water quality ie visibility and temperature were fantastic as were the number of species of fish. We have snorkelled around Phi Phi Island before and the Similan Islands offer, in our opinion, better snorkelling. Snorkelling...More

Hi I suggest you take a snorkeling trip on the other side of Phuket Island to the area around Phi Phi Island. There are some nice snorkeling areas on this side.

To my knowledge the tour to the Similian Islands only leaves from Phuket. Therefore you would have to fly, go by bus or by car to Phuket. Phuket is 844 km from Bangkok. Flying time 1 hour 10 minutes. By road 11 hours 17... More

Similan Islands Overnight Diving Trip (3 Replies)
Hi there, my family and I are coming to the Khao Lak area on the 26th of December for 2 and a half weeks. We are booking day trips through Khao Lak Land Discovery but my husband would also like to do an overnight Similans scuba diving trip. I have found several dive companies operating out of Khao Lak but wondered if there was a company that anybody would particularly recommend? Thanks so much for your time, looking forward to receiving any recommendations:-)

The Dive Centres in Khao lak are respected outfits and prices don't vary much, so I would go with one that best meets your husband's requirements. Have a look at Things to Do on the left for recommendations.

Probably going via Khao Lak is the best option. You can get a bus or taxi from KL to KS.
