Similan Islands - Thailand

The Similan Islands are a National Park and are located about 55 miles NW of Phuket. It is considered the best place in Thailand for divers. The park covers 140 square kilometres in total, 14 of those being land in the shape of an archipelago consisting of nine islands.

They are Ko Bon, Ko Bayu, Ko Similan, Ko Payu, Ko Miang (two adjoining islands), Ko Payan, Ko Payang, and Ko Huyong. For simplicity they are often referred to by their number instead - 1 through 9 starting from the south. Recently, the park was expanded to include the two remote islands Ko Bon and Ko Tachai.

To give nature a rest, the park is closed between May and October.

From the Similans to Ko Bon it is about 3 - 4 hours, to Ko Tachai about 4 - 5 hours to sail.

From Ko Bon to Richelieu Rock is about another 5 - 7 hours.

Scuba Diving from a private yacht is simply more fun. You just dive with your friends and you can jump in the water, when all the other larger groups left the reef already.
