I joined the liveaboard trip with scuba cats for a 3 night trip around the similan islands. I was a very inexperienced diver at the outset and had only completed my open water course to date.

This was my first Liveaboard experience and I loved it. Very helpful crew amazing cook and two great guides. We dived some amazing and varied dive sites with plenty to see and had a good social life as well. I met some great people and came away with some lasting memories. Definitely want to return next year. . .

I was very nervous for my first liveaboard experience as I had completed my Open Water course almost two full years prior and was also traveling solo.

These folks love their work and it shows. I arrived in Phuket without any set plans, except to do some diving. When I walked into their shop, they were very friendly and obviously a professional outfit.
