Similan Explorer Similans Liveaboard

Thailand liveaboard Similan Explorer might have a cheap price, but she offers excellent value for money to scuba divers more concerned about the excellent Similan Islands scuba diving itinerary, than they are about not having a private a private bathroom, the trippy bright turquoise interior cabin paint jobs with matching curtains inside the cabins. Importantly though, the cabins do have splendid views and they are all air-conditioned. M.V. Similan Explorer operates three or five night Similans liveaboard trips, with diving around the Similan Islands, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai, and Richelieu Rock. The five night itinerary also schedules a visit to one of the more remote Surin Islands, where guests can visit a traditional Sea Gypsy village.

Onboard accommodation consists of four quad share cabins with curtains for each bunk offering a degree of privacy, plus two twin bed cabins on the main deck. Upstairs, there are two more guest cabins which have double beds. The boat is spacious enough to find a peaceful area to relax between dives, and there are hammocks and sun chairs on the partially shaded sun-deck at the rear of the boat. Similan Explorer liveaboard has a communal dining area where tasty meals are served, and snacks and other goodies are always available. Guests share three bathrooms, which have toilets and showers, and there are two additional showers available.
