Boulder City Similan Islands

Boulder City is situated to the south east of Similan Islands 3. Named after the boulders that are formed in long rows giving the impression of a city layout.

Many hard corals and less soft coral and some stunning fluorescent pink Anemone Coral can be found.A great searching site, looking in crevices and finding undiscovered marine life. The site throws up some great stuff even though the site is not in abundance of life.

Hook jaw eels are here as well as the hard to find Ribbon eels along with some nice tuna. Be careful of deco time as you can be in single figures for most of the dive. All in all a very enjoyable site however it should be the first dive of the day. for experienced divers only.

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, the answer is yes. In the PADI Open Water Diver Course it is specified that you have to be able to swim 200 metres. This can be with any stroke. You also have to be able to tread water or float for at least 10 minutes.
