Similan Island Itinerary A: 5 Days / 6 Nights on board
This is the most popular of our itineraries and is meant to give our guests the best of the Similan Islands within their limited schedules. Our 5 day / 6 night trip, as with all SY Philkade’s departures and arrivals, is timed so that there is no need to stay overnight on Phuket Island, though if you wish to we are able to arrange accommodation.
With five days diving and up to four dives a day we can offer you the best of the Similan Islands. The dive sites usually visited include: East of Eden, Deep 6, Elephant Head Rock, Anita’s Reef, North Point, Ko Bon, Ko Tachai, and of course the famous Richelieu Rock.
As we have a little more time in the Similan Islands than many operators we encourage all our guests to visit the islands whenever possible between dives (either by tender or kayak), so that you can experience what the Similan Islands have to offer above, as well as below the water. You could lounge on the beaches of Ko Miang, Ko Similan, or Ko Tachai or stretch your legs to the view points overlooking Honeymoon Bay and Ao Guerk.
Over five days of scuba diving you can see hard coral reefs, soft coral covered pinnacles, and large boulder sites (a Similan speciality). All these are commonly covered with Snapper, Goat Fish, Grouper, Green and Hawksbill Turtles, Anthea, and Damsel Fish. When lady luck travels with us you may wish to bring your camera! Over the 2007-08 season we saw Manta Rays, Eagle Rays, Whale Sharks, Leopard Sharks, schools of Barracuda, Sea Horses, Harlequin Shrimp, and many more in these waters.
