The Phinisi Similan Islands Liveaboard

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.

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.

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…
