The Junk Phi Phi Island Liveaboard

3 Days/2 Nights From US$ 480

The Junk Runs A Short And Very Sweet Thailand Liveaboard Around The Phi Phi Islands

The Junk or June Hong Chian Lee is a very unusual and very special Phi Phi island liveaboard. During the West coast of Thailand low season (May – October) she offers short and very well priced overnight trips to the dive sites around Phuket and Phi Phi.

As well as the fantastic Phi Phi Islands you’ll get a chance to dive Shark Point, Koh Doc Mai, Racha Noi, Racha Yai and the King Cruiser wreck, a great mix of reef, wall and wreck.

Known locally as ‘The Junk’ this elegant yacht gives a unique diving experience and she has starred in several Hollywood movies including James Bond’s The Man with the Golden Gun, filmed not very far away in Phang Nha Bay. Making the Junk the perfect Phi Phi Island liveaboard.

She has a spacious and atmospheric indoor saloon and generous deck space to relax on between dives. Food is served buffet style in the saloon and is absolutely delicious! The air-conditioned cabins are all en-suite and come in different configurations to suite every budget.

Diving is conducted from a dinghy which is accessed from a purpose built platform on the side of the boat, the ever present and helpful crew make this an efficient and easy process.

Richelieu Rock – Thailand’s Great All Rounder

Very few dive sites can match Richelieu Rock for variety. So much so that it can be a bit of a nightmare for photographers choosing which lens to take. On its day regarded as one of the top ten dive sites in the world and is certainly the best in Thailand. Allegedly 'discovered' by Jacques Cousteau with the help of local fisherman. There is much debate on how Richelieu Rock got its name so it's nice to think that the great man had some involv [...]

Marlas Mystery – Mystery Solved

Some times the bad weather can work to your advantage. The large swell on the ocean prevented us from going to our preferred dive sites so a group of us decided to visit the deepest wreck at Racha Yai. We were pleasantly surprised with what we found. Healthy coral and lots of fish. The wreck was sunk in 2000 by the former owner of a Phuket dive centre. He found the stripped down rusting hulk in a shipyard in Phuket Town. All of the pot [...]
