Somboon 3

Somboon 3

1 Night/2 Days From THB 13,900

The Most flexible liveaboards in the Similan Islands

The sister boats Somboon 3 & 4 are the most flexible boats we have to offer. They both run scheduled 3 Day/ 2 Night trips to Richelieu Rock. In between they stay around the Similan Islands National Park. Neither boat comes back to port until the end of the season and transfers are made via speedboat from Khao lak. This allows divers to stay for just 1 Night/2 Days if you’re on a tight schedule or even just a two dive day trip.

Both boats are large and well maintained. They can have a large number of divers for the middle two dives of the day especially in the peak holiday periods around Xmas and New Year. The late afternoon and early morning dives are much less crowded. Only overnight guests (max 28) can join these dives.

The eating area is huge to allow for the extra day trip guests and there is a small air-conditioned saloon on both boats. None of the cabins are en-suite but all have individually controlled air-conditioning and sea views.

If you’re on a limited budget and a tight schedule, then Somboon 3 could be a great option for you.

A Maze of artificial reef at bay 1 Racha Yai The Archives

Artificial Reefs At Racha Yai

Many dive sites in Phuket are home to artificial reefs, an initiative that has been ongoing for many years and definitely pays off. Racha Yai was severely affected by coral bleaching in 2010. A huge storm a few years later destroyed what little was left of the coral. A couple of wrecks and a maze of cubes were sunk to attract some of the marine life back. These numerous cubes, wrecks, reef balls, statues and even a scooter have helped the [...]

From 2015 the Phi Phi Islands National Park jumped fee to THB 400 for all tourists and an extra THB 200 for divers. For 2022 this has been reduced to a THB 200 entry fee and THB 200 for divers. At first fees were collected sporadically but now park officials have set up a floating pontoon where all boats have to report. They also have a speedboat so they can board boats who "forget" to report. We're not sure if this is a permanent reductio [...]

Banded Sea Krait – 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 y [...]
