Smiling Seahorse – Similan Liveaboard
2022 – 2023 Similan Islands Diving Season update
Unfortunately the two main luxury Similan Islands liveaboards, Thailand Aggressor and Diva Andaman, are not operating during the 2022-2023 Similan Islands diving season (October 2022 to May 2023)
Many Similan liveaboards were mothballed during the Covid pandemic due to lack of customers, and it’s now difficult for some boats to start back up again.
Two excellent mid-range Similan liveaboards operating this season are the Smiling Seahorse and the Phinisi. Both of these boats managed to continue operating in Thailand throughout the Covid pandemic when there were no foreign tourists due to the borders being closed.
Another couple of mid-range Similan liveaboards worth considering are The Junk and Dive Race Class E. The Junk is a very charismatic vessel as it was the same boat used in the 1974 classic James Bond movie The Man With The Golden Gun, while Dive Race Class E is as modern as dive boats get with a steel hull and a sleek, contemporary feel.
There are other mid-range boats on the Mid-Range Similan Liveaboards page.
