2019 – 2020 Similan Island Season

The 2019/2020 Similan Islands liveaboard season is fast approaching & now is the perfect time to plan and book your dive trip for 2019/2020.

As many scuba divers know the Similan Islands are currently closed for the monsoon season and will be re-opening around the 15th October.

It is now the ideal time to look into the available trips for the upcoming season, with some of the liveaboard boats offering some very good “early bird” discounts for bookings made prior to the end of August.

The 2018/19 Similan Islands Season

Last season the Similan Islands offered up some fantastic diving with some of the largest numbers of both Whale Sharks & mantaray seen over the season. Several trips in 2018 & early 2019 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.

Book your 2019/2020 Similan Island Liveaboard Now

The Similan Islands are becoming more & more popular, and the Thai authorities have put visitor number restrictions in place over the last few years. It is now the perfect time to plan and book your 2019 & 2020 Similans trips so that you don’t miss out on these fantastic dive sites.

During the peak season (December/January) in the Similan Islands, some of the liveaboards can be fully sold out 2 or 3 months in advance.

There is also some fantastic “Early bird” discount to be had on boats like MV Pawara & Sawasdee Fasai offering 10% discount for bookings made and paid for prior to the 31st August.

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. If you want to become a certified scuba diver by doing the PADI Open Water Diver Course then the answer is yes. In the PADI Open Water Diver Course it is specified that you have to be able to swim 200 metres with any stroke and also have to be able to tread water or float for at least 10 minutes. The reason for this is not for the fact that scuba diving requires you to swim, but rather it is for yours and your groups safety. In the unlikely event that your BCD (Buoyancy Control Device) was to falter then there would be no device to keep you afloat [...]

Good Dive Deck Preparation

The day trip scuba diving boats in Phuket are large often wooden boats that can hold up to 50 scuba divers. The dive decks at the back of the boat are often crowded and leave little room for scuba diver preparation and more importantly limited space for instructors tutoring students. If dive deck is not planned in an efficient manner it can become unnecessarily crowded, not allowing scuba divers to properly prepare and in a worse case scenario be dangerous and lead to accidents both on the dive deck and upon entry to the water. A clustered dive deck can be unsettling for students learning to scuba dive such as those doing beginners co [...]

Why We Should Help Save All Sharks

Phuket and its surrounding areas are fortunate to have some wonderful sharks to go diving with. Black Tip Reef sharks and Leopard (above) sharks are possibly the two most common. The Phi Phi islands often provide great sightings of Black tips with Palong Wall on Phi Phi Ley being one of the best. On a good day it is possible to see up to 20 or 30 sharks, which makes for an amazing dive. One of the best features of the black tips is that they are commonly located in shallow water and can be easily seen by even the most novice of divers and can often be seen by snorkelers as well. Leopard sharks are one of the most popular sharks in th [...]
