Similan Liveaboard Trip Report


Similan Liveaboard Trip 19

Bigeye trevally at Richelieu Rock in Thailand

A great trip both above and below the water. We had some awesome dives and some real good laughs along the way too. A few glasses of wine and the occasional scotch made for somewhat of a slightly more decadent trip than usual but enjoyed greatly by everyone. Conditions in the water cleared from recent weeks, with some great viz around the Similans. As we pushed north, although the viz slightly reduced, Koh Bon and Tachai treated us to some very fishy dives.

Trip 19 has returned and what a great few days of diving with a lovely crowd of guests from all over the world joining us in the Similan and Surin Marine parks.

Conditions proved to be much better than previous weeks with visibility returning to the levels we expect of diving the Andaman sea.

Similan Liveaboard Trip 16

Schooling giant trevally at Richelieu Rock dive site

Trip 16 is complete and we hope you guys all had a great Similan liveaboard. Full moon this trip meant a slight change in conditions compared to recent weeks. Some up wellings and slightly reduced vis over the park, however plenty of food in the water kept the dive sites active with schools of fish feeding. The Similans boosting slightly viz than Richelieu it seemed that Koh Tachai was the pick of the dives this trip.

The Similan’s are still treating us to some great visibility and plenty of life. Day One offered a bit of current to liven things up a bit, but you guys all rocked it, and the mood on the boat seemed pretty good all round. Shark sightings on several of the dives including a large leopard shark at Three Trees,  gave us a bit of hope heading north, for some cracking diving to come.

Scuba diver amongst high fish productivity at Richelieu Rock in Thailand

Visibility was much clearer around the nine Similan Islands and water temperatures were noticeably warmer too. Christmas Point was amazing on day two of our Similan liveaboard. One of those rare occasions when there was no current and with visibility at 40+ metres we were able to cover and see the entire huge site.

Time aboard our SImilan liveaboard and underwater was straight out of the top draw. Similan and Surin treated us to some great diving. Richelieu Rock in particular even with less visibility than the Similan’s showed us over a couple of dives just how diverse and magical the underwater world can be.

Pick of the dives for me, dive 2 at Richelieu Rock. The movement of the glass fish, the hunting action, multiple rays and 2 of the biggest giant…

Diving on this trip did not disappoint. So much life on any site we chose. Christmas Point certainly came baring Christmas gifts in the rather large form of our flappy friends the Manta ray.

The cooler waters continue to be around, but what a season in terms of life its producing. Almost every dive, every group came back with some special sightings. Multiple species of rays and sharks, all over the parks.
