Similan Itinerary C1: 4 Days / 4 Nights on board
This itinerary is perfect for those who wish to see the best of the Similan Islands but are limited with time though wish to relax in luxury. Unlike most 4 day Similan trips, this one has the advantage that it is 'one way' and thus limits cruising time which enhances dive site choice and maximises time on the Similan Islands themselves.
The itinerary will include two full days diving on the Similan Islands diving such sites as East of Eden, Deep 6, Elephant Head Rock, and Three Trees before heading north via Ko Bon, Ko Tachai, and of course 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 the four days you can see hard coral reefs, soft coral covered pinnacles, and large boulder sites (a Similan speciality). All these are 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, Whale Sharks, Leopard Sharks, schools of Barracuda, Sea Horses, Harlequin Shrimp, and many more in these waters.
At the end of this 4 day itinerary, guests choosing to leave the boat will be transferred from the Port of Ranong on the Thai border to their hotel in Phuket.
