This was our first liveaboard experience and we booked with Aussie Divers to spend 4 days 3 nights on Somboon 3. It's a budget option so we didn't have high expectations but it was very nice. Our cabin was clean and comfortable enough, we only went there to sleep anyway. Bathrooms were fine and we never had to wait long... More

booked a 2 day / 1 night liveaborad. First impressions: packed with divers on the boat since they combine the liveaboard guests with daytrip guests. I had nowhere to sit when lunch was served on the boat. Also,- the main dive master "Greg" was rude towards me and other guests. Service: Good. Safety: Bad. Food: Good. Overall impression: worst liveaboard... More

My wife and I had a great time on the 2d/1n live aboard dive trip. We had an amazing cabin and 7 dives including a night dive. Food was decent, they catered to us being vegetarian which was great. Staff were good! Two major things that were bad. Safety is not considered at all. During a night dive they ran... More

I did a couple of day trips with this operator and as an experienced diver I am pretty happy to go budget rather than five star but on these boats many other dive operators without boats join in and that means that the actual number of south slam divers can very small - on both my days only 2-3 divers...

We booked through Merlin Divers, Kamala who we knew since before. Seven nice dives, comfortably and clean cabins and very good food. Together with our private guide Patter (paid extra and well with... More

I organized to do a 2 day 1 night dive trip to the Similian Islands through Thailand Liveaboards, who linked me in with South Siam divers. I was picked up at 6 am by the SSD team bus drivers, and transported along with 10 others to the port on the mainland some 110 Kms away. This was followed by 1.5... More

It made me put one star to write this review. If I could put negative stars I would. We were lost at sea for two hours. It took the boat an hour to know we were missing and another hour to find us since the current drifted us further than they expected. If it was not for the excellent Thai... More

I joined the day trip diving tour of Similan Islands on 27th December 2016, via "Merlin Divers" which is one of the agent of South Siam Divers. In the second diving, as soon as I came into 8 meters depth in the water, I noticed the waters couldn't be out from my mouth. I tried it out again and again... More
