Thailand liveaboard recommendations

Similan Islands park rangerThe best way to dive the Similan and Surin Island national marine parks is by liveaboard. If you are serious about doing the best diving in Thailand then a liveaboard is the only way to go.

The most popular Thailand liveaboard duration is 4 days 4 nights and includes diving at the the Similan Islands, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock. Shorter trips are available that focus just on the Similan Islands or the Richelieu Rock, Tachai and Koh Bon.

There are also short (2 or 3 night) liveaboards to Hin Daeng, Hin Muang, Koh Haa and Phi Phi. These can be combined with a Similan trip to make a complete Andaman sea dive safari.

There are so many Thailand liveaboards to choose from it can be difficult to select one. We can help. Tell us your dates of travel, how much you want to spend and anything else that’s relevant, like your dive experience and what type of cabin you want (ie. private bathroom, double or twin bed, single occupancy etc). We’ll give your our recommendations. Our keep reading for our suggestions based on budget, duration and location.


Luxury


Best value

  • 4 day 4 night best value Similan Islands liveaboard
    Pawara is great value and always well reviewed. The dive staff are a cheerful group and the food is excellent. Prices are just a bit cheaper than the competition and include free nitrox. Pawara is often booked up well in advance.
  • Best value single cabin
    Oktavia has a good price for single occupancy cabins if you are traveling solo. It’s a big boat with lots of space. Oktavia is a step up from the budget boats but still cheap.
  • High style liveaboard without the high price
    The Junk is very good value for such an iconic boat. Especially if you book early and get a discount.



Richelieu Rock


Less dived than the Similan Islands but as good as Richelieu Rock. That’s what many divers think about these two submerged pinnacles close to Koh Lanta.


Short time

If you are short of time try one of these one or two night liveaboards


 

Why a Thailand liveaboard?

Thailand has some of the World’s best diving. The “Land of Smiles” boasts multiple dive destinations with a huge variety of marine life and underwater topography, something to suit all tastes.The water is warm and clear. For most of the year the sun is shining and the sea is flat.Thai people are great hosts and their food is superb. Thailand is tourist friendly and has much more to offer than just diving. It also has top class accommodation and medical facilities.Thailand’s best dive sites are reached by liveaboard dive boat.

Liveaboards offer the most dives for your dollar, they get you in the water first and they allow you to get to some dive sites that the day trippers can’t reach.There are liveaboard boats for all budgets from backpacker to 5 star luxury vessels. Liveaboard tours can be short overnight trips or multi day dive safaris. Many liveaboards offer Nitrox diving and PADI SCUBA courses.

Thailand Scuba Diving

Similan Islands
Rated up there with the world’s best dive destinations and certainly Thailands diving crown jewel. Crystal clear water and a variety of underwater topography that most dive destinations cannot offer. A liveaboard is the ideal way to dive all the best Similan sites as well as Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock. Underwater photographers will need macro and wide angle lenses on these trips.

Hin Daeng and Hin Muang
Red Rock and Purple Rock, two deep pinnacles frequented by sharks, manta rays and huge schools of fish. Liveaboard trips last 2/3 days and often include dives at Phi Phi Islands, Koh Haa Cave, Shark Point and King Cruiser Wreck. A great alternative or complement to a Similan liveaboard with really varied diving.

Phi Phi Islands
The old backpacker hangout has loads of quality dive sites around stunning karst limestone rock formations. Beautiful soft coral. Leopard sharts, blacktip sharks and sea turtles are all common.

Koh Tao
Off the east coast of Thailand in the gulf of Thailand. It hasn’t got the visibility or the diversity of the west coast dive sites but it’s a great destination for lots cheap dives and dive training. Chumphon Pinnacle gets regular whaleshark sightings.
