Liveaboard season at the Similan start in Mid-October until May, we believe that the best time to come during this period is Mid-February to April, in order to get the best chance to see the Manta Ray and Whale Shark and avoid the crowd of Mid-December and February. Some like the begin of the season in November as the dive site haven't been visited for 5 months marine life has regained in number and seem less shy to divers. The busiest time of the year is Christmas and new year and booking need to be made early.
Most liveaboards are based in Khaolak as it the shortest way to cruise to the Similan. But pick up are organized all around Phuket with an extra charge and Khaolak for free by most of the boat operators. Some even pick up at the airport of Phuket.
all liveaboard have a chef on board and food is cooked every day, so you can request during your booking any special diet, or any food allergy then a special set will be prepared for you at each meals.
We generally request a the PADI Advanced open water or any level 2 from other organization to book a liveaboard. Open Water divers can book a trip but are required to do the deep diving training first, before the trip or on the first day of the trip. As most dive sites go below 20m you must be certified for that depth. Drivers with less than 30 dive that cannot proof a logged dives in the past 12 months are required to do a refresher dive first with an instructor.
