The Similan Islands are situated 60 NM North West of Phuket, and are a protected National Marine Park. The crystal blue clear waters are teeming with wildlife, with Turtles, Manta Rays and hundreds of different species of fish.
The nine islands, numbered 1-9 from a South to North direction have hundreds of bays with talcum powder like sand beaches whilst below the surface the coral is amazing and the islands are ranked in the top 10 dive sites in the world. Only two of the islands (numbers 4 and 8) are inhabited by the park rangers and on these two islands you can set foot ashore and explore. The islands are covered with lush green forests, with gigantic granite boulders covering the islands running right down to the beaches.
A 3-day excursion is a prefect amount of time to explore all the islands and the seas surrounding them. There is no greater feeling than waking up in the morning with the sun rising over your own private piece of paradise. For guests looking for a bit of action we can also offer the options for some fishing depending on the vessel selected, with the waters offering great chances to catch some fish for your evening meals.
The Similan Islands are only open between October and April due to sea conditions
The Similan Islands are a protected National Park and it is illegal to fish within a 3 NM radius of the islands
