MV Similan Explorer

The MV Similan Explorer runs a combination of short 3 Day/3 Night and longer 5 Day/5 Night Similan & Surin Island liveaboard safaris. So if you're short on time or have too much then this could be a great option for you. This experienced operator has been successfully running two vessels for a very long time, their longevity and high amount of returning guests is a testament to their great service and rock solid organisation. The layout is almost identical to her sister ship MV Dolphin Queen. The only significant difference is the cabin configuration, there are 4 twin cabins, 2 quad cabins and 2 double bed cabins that comfortably accommodate a maximum of 20 guests. The double cabins a [...]

Liveaboard Scuba Diving Holidays

Liveaboard diving simply refers to large Marine Vessels, or Yachts that you live onboard, for multiple days of diving. Each Liveaboard tour or holiday is different and the number of days on board or the number of dives possible changes per trip, but one thing always remains constant, breathtaking diving. From Phuket there are three main locations for Liveaboard scuba diving holidays, they are the majestic Similan Islands, the secretive & secluded Myanmar and the twin pinnacles of Hin Daeng, Hin Muang in the Koh Haa marine reserve. Each has their special attraction and secrets, but none will ever disappoint e [...]

Octopus Are a Common Sighting In Phuket Diving Rare & Peculiar Critters

How Does An Octopus Change Colour?

Dazzling colour changes and perfect camouflage make octopus a favourite with everybody diving in Phuket but how do they perform this magic trick, well it's not mirrors, sorcery or witchcraft it's a complex combination of muscle, nerves, brain and skin pigments. By far the most common octopus we see when diving in Phuket is the day octopus (octopus cyanea) so we'll base our facts around this very convenient creature (we don't do night dives). That's what the cells are called, octopus have thousands of different colour chromataphores to every square inch of skin. Think of them as tiny balloons filled with coloured ink. The 'ink balloons' on most octopus come in black, brown, red, or [...]

Nitrox Membrane System On MV Kebsup

Our day trip to the King Cruiser wreck is one of the most popular on the Phuket diving scene, it's even more enjoyable if you dive with Enriched Air Nitrox. The depth of the wreck 18 - 32m can make it a short dive on normal air tanks but with Nitrox you can easily make a full 50 minutes as long as your air consumption allows. With this is mind we decided to invest in a Nitrox membrane system, allowing divers to chose on the day if they would prefer Nitrox and if your not already Nitrox certified we have the [...]
