What are the Similan and Surin Island National Park Fees?

When budgeting for scuba diving liveaboard from Phuket to the Similan Islands or Surin Islands you must take into account the cost of Nation Park fees.

In 1982 the Similan Islands (including Koh Bon) were deemed to be a nation park and as a result fees were introduced for the care and up keep of the islands.

For the 2015 – 2016 Season the price for entering the nation park is THB 500 and THB 200 for each day that you are there. There for is you are on a over night liveaboard then you will pay THB 500 + THB 200 x 2 days making the total THB 900.

The same goes for the Koh Surin National Park which takes in the Surin Islands, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock.

If you were to go on a 4 day 4 night liveaboard that takes in some diving at both the Similan Islands and then Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock then you fees would be like this:

THB 500 to enter Koh Similan Island National Park, THB 500 to enter Koh Surin National Park and THB 200 (x 4) for each day that you are there making the total THB 1,800 for a 4-day trip.

The fees are paid directly to the scuba diving liveaboard boat operator who then in turn pays the authorities when the enter the national park. Payment needs to be in cash and Thai Baht is preferred.
