Above my expectations

The diving was obviously amazing. But what really made the trip was the main dive instructor Marja who did a really good job of setting the vibe. The food was amazing and the thai crew really helpful, smiling and caring. I enjoyed this trip a lot!

Incredible diving experience

Being quite a novice dver, the variety of sealife I saw was incredible, as was seeing a juvenile whale shark.

The diving was amazing, the crew were incredibly helpful, being vegan the effort the chef put in to ensure I had enough food was wonderful.

The variety of marine life in the Similan Islands and the good weather made this trip great.

My wife and I have been looking for an octopus for quite a while and during a dive in Koh Bon we saw two. One was hiding but the other one was out hunting and when it saw us it started changing colors from dark purple to a camouflage which made it almost impossible to distinguish from the coral reef. We seem to often get lucky on our dives but this was one of the best experiences we’ve had.
