A big thank you to Adam for your guidance and welcoming message on the boat. The professional though humoured way you treated us made us felt welcomed on board. The neatness and smoothly organised set up before the divers took off for the diving was impressive.

I did a three dive trip with SSD incorporating King cruiser wreck, shark point and Koh Dok Mai, the diving was good even though the vis wasn't the best, there was plenty wild life to see and the food was great, the only slight down side I can think of was there was no picture of the King cruiser in...

We chartered on their boat #4 with another dive company (Bangtao Dive Center) and thought this operation was very good. We had our own dive master through Bangtao Dive Center, but their dive masters seemed very good also. Very professional and kept the groups separate. They were very good at getting the groups in as slightly staggered paces so we... More

We have tried several day-trips with three different operators during the week. I would say this one was the least satisfying. The crew and the dive leader were very nice, nothing to complain about them. However the boat was the smallest and the most packed one among the ones that we have tried. Also the slowest one, the journey took... More

I went with South Siam Divers on two trips - both to the same group of dives, The first dy was unfortunate as we ended up missing the third dive after King Cruiser (Shark Point Dive 3) as we had done 16 minutes deco stop, This was in part down to the briefing - I either missed or wasn't told...

Spent 4D3N on SS4 from 28-31 Oct. Diving the Similan Islands and Richelieu Rock. Diving is well planned and organized. Staff are friendly. Food is good. No rush in diving as there are less than 10 divers every day (perhaps its not peak season yet). Adequate toilet facilities. The DM are excellent. Avoiding more current and make the dive pleasant....

Booked for a day trip to King Cruiser. The guide was thorough in his briefings, letting us know what the plan was and giving us details about the sites. The boat was fine, but there was no vegetarian food available, which meant I was limited to toast and jam for the day. The diving was the main disappointment for me.... More

Took their boat for a dive in Phuket, what was supposed to be an hour of boat ride took them 3 since they wanted to conserve fuel . Service on boat was terrible and the staff are unfriendly at most!! Never diving with these idiots again
