The 2020/21 Similan Islands Season

Last season the Similan Islands offered up some fantastic diving. With some of the largest numbers of both Whale Sharks & manta ray seen over the season. Several trips in 2019 & early 2020 had sightings of both Mantas & Whalesharks. Some trips even had multiple sightings on different dive sites.

The best fish life is always found at the dive sites in the North of Similans like Richelieu Rock, Koh Tachai & Koh Bon. To reach these better dive sites you should look at doing the 4d/4n or 5d/5n trips, as most of the longer trips will include Similan Islands + the norhtern islands.

Similan Islands is not just about the “big favourites’ though. The season also had a lot of other amazing critters, including turtles, sharks, larger pelagic’s and heaps of awesome macro life. The weather god’s did not disappoint this season. With most trips sailing in nice calm waters and reports of “gin” clear water having 40m visibility or more.

Do I Need to Know How To Swim to Scuba Dive?

This is a question that I often get asked, and really it is not as simple as YES or NO. Here is some explanations and reasons why. If you want to become a certified scuba diver by doing the PADI Open Water Diver Course, the answer is yes.

There is alternate option and that is you do a 300 metre mask, fin and snorkel swim. Some do find this easier to the 200 swim. You also have to be able to tread water or float for at least 10 minut [...]

Its sounding like a win-win all round! If you are looking for a local forec [...]
