Step Back In Time With This Wonderful Thailand Liveaboard

The June Hong Chian Lee is the most unmistakable Thailand liveaboard. A throwback to a bygone era she was converted from a merchant cargo vessel to this elegant liveaboard in 1997 and has since been an ever present in the Similan & Surin Islands. During green season (May – October) she offers short and very well priced overnight trips to the dive sites around Phuket and Phi Phi.

We know her as the ‘Junk’ but don’t be fooled by the name, she is anything but. Stepping onboard the hardwood deck you immediately feel that you’ve made the right choice. She has starred in several Hollywood movies including James Bond’s The Man with the Golden Gun and Disney’s The Swiss Family Robinson.

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.

Koh Bida Nai

In the interest of variety we don't dive Koh Bida Nai very often. It's very similar to it's sister island Koh Bida Nok which we consider to be a better dive site. It was on a par but since we lost the beautiful staghorn fields to coral bleaching it's lost a little of it's lustre. Still it's an interesting dive site with lots of hard corals, boulders and swim throughs. The swim through at the south west corner is particular nice. It forms a [...]
