Many different companies are offering one-day snorkeling trips to the similan island. They all cost the same, but this one is more expensive. When we talked to the staff of the company, they told us some reasons, why we should choose them and not the cheap others. He gave us many and for us- very important- reasons. First of all,... More

Booked a trip thru Abraham on the MV Camic which is operated by Similan Seven Sea Club. The diving was excellent, the guides were professional and the food was good. It's important to note if you are booking overnite, don't assume there are 20-some people on board. They run daytrips out to this boat and there may be 30, 40,... More

Put this on your dive bucket list! I am very new to diving, wet behind the ears so to speak ;) but I must say that my trip(s) with Khao Lak Scuba Adventures (aka Similan Dive Center) will probably have me wondering why I tried diving anywhere else in the future. I loved my trip and diving so much that... More

We booked a 2-day/1-night snorkeling tour via the Similan Dive Center. Our contact with the manager was smooth and easy. It should be noted, though, that this "company" doesn't organize snokeling tours. The actual tours are run by another company, named "Medsye Travel". When we compared the prices, the difference was negligable. But if you want to know what you... More

Thank you for the review. Medsay is indeed the organizer of the tours. They ask us to sell their tours from our shop in Khao Lak. We saw it as a welcomed tour, because we’ve guest who like to be on a “snorkelers only” tour and don’t want to share their tour with divers. We use the same prices as... More
