The Phinisi Similan Islands Liveaboard

The Phinisi Similan Islands Liveaboard

4 Days/4 Nights From US$ 1,200

The Phinisi Is A Unique Luxury Similan Islands Liveaboard

The Phinisi is a traditional Indonesian designed two masted sailing ship. This elegant boat is the only one we know of that sails in the Similan Islands. She also runs to Myanmar and the South Andaman covering the best diving that surrounds Phuket.

Operated by the same owners as The Junk the official name of the Phinisi Similan Islands liveaboard is ‘Cheng I Sao’. it’s the name of a pirate queen loosely portrayed in The Pirates Of The Caribbean. You certainly won’t get robbed or held captive on this excellent boat, just treated like royalty.

18 very lucky guests are comfortably accommodated in a range of cabins to suit different budgets. Two Quad cabins, two twin cabins and 3 cabins that can be used as either twin or double bed configuration. Every cabin has en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning, towels, storage space, overhead reading lights and a safe.

There’s plenty of space in the social areas; a large air conditioned saloon has a TV and a library of books, movies and games. The sundeck is spacious and the perfect place to watch the Similan Island sunsets from your cushioned sun lounger.

Built By Divers For Divers

The shaded diving deck has generous individual set up areas which include a personal storage area. Diving is done from a tender inline with the new Similan Island National Park rules. Rental equipment is high quality Aqualung, SMB are offered free of charge and nitrox is available to rent (recommended).

Excellent and plentiful food is served buffet style and eaten either in the shaded dining area or inside the comfortable saloon. You certainly won’t go hungry but neither will you lose any weight on the trip…

Racha Noi South Tip

Quite honestly we wish we could get to Racha Noi South Tip every trip but the converging currents from either side of Racha Noi make it a challenging dive even on weak tides. Only once or twice a month the current is low enough for us to get there but it's a real treat when we can. Even the guides are queuing up for this trip! The dive site consists of a series of huge granite boulders that have been washed smooth by the strong currents. C [...]

Are PADI And SSI Interchangeable?

The short answer is absolutely you can dive with a PADI dive shop if you're certified from lots of different agencies. We're all underwater brothers and sisters. So as long as you have proof of certification then you can dive at almost any location with anybody. In truth there is very little difference between any of the agencies. We all have to follow the same basic standards as set by the WRSTC (World Recreational Scuba Training Coun [...]

Banded Sea Krait At Koh Bida Nok - Phuket Rare & Peculiar Critters

Phuket’s Deadly Pacifist!

If we stumbled across a cobra on our Phuket travels most of us would disappear into the distance screaming yet we can calmly watch a snake with a more toxic venom from just a couple of meters when scuba diving. The yellow lipped banded sea krait has a very powerful myotoxic venom and is probably the only snake you'll encounter on your Thailand holiday. The reason you may hear is that their mouths are too small and they can only bite yo [...]

Wreck Diving In Phuket And Further Afield

Phuket is not well known for wreck diving but we do have a few and some are very good. In one bay at Racha Yai we have 5! Ok, we're using the term wreck a little cheaply for a couple of them but they were boats and now they're on the ocean floor so it's a wreck. Our premier wreck for diving in Phuket. It's the oldest of our recreational diving wrecks and very much worth a visit for all experienced divers. The bottom of the wreck is ove [...]
