Similan Islands sailing divingWith a yacht charter, you can make a Similan and Surin Islands Trip from Phuket.

We can organise your individual cruise according to your preferences and travel dates.

Please keep in mind that good weather conditions are necessary for you to make the most of this cruise; so it is best to to visit the Similan and Surin Islands between November and April.

Coral reef fish Similan IslandsThe Surin and Similan Islands form an island chain which lies about 100km northwest of Phuket, and about 60km away from Thailand’s west coast.

They are renowned for some of the most beautiful diving and snorkeling in the world.

In 1981, the Kingdom of Thailand turned the Surin and Similan Islands into national parks.

Their idyllic tropical setting, as well as the exciting and varied diving opportunities, make them a perfect vacation and diving destination.

Similan Islands beach near the reefWith an average water temperature of 29° C and visibility at 20 – 40 m, the Surin and Similan islands offer optimal diving conditions.

You can see about 80% of all of Thailand’s most beautiful underwater life here, including whale sharks, giant turtles, and moray eels.

The reefs are teeming with manta rays, sailfish, whale sharks, and other kinds of big fish.

No visitor can resist a long, lazy stroll down the beautiful, snow-white beaches, or just basking in the sun.

There are no streets here, but you can easily reach nearly all corners of the islands thanks to foot paths through the jungle.

The Islands are full of tropical rainforests and big granite cliffs with mysterious stone formations.

The cliffs also continue under water, building beautiful coral gardens with hard and soft coral, and forming canyons and overhangs which you can swim through.

The Mu Ko Surin National Park is part of the northernmost Thai islands in the Andaman Sea.

It is open to tourists between November and April, and it stretches over a total area of 135 km², which includes two large, main islands (Koh Surin Tai & Koh Surin Nua) and three smaller, uninhabited granite islands (Koh Ri, Koh Khai, and Koh Klang)

Heading north from the Similans, we encounter Koh Bon. The Basalt cliff formations make this island very different from its surroundings.

There are no beaches here; instead, visitors can explore a beautiful, almost vertical, coral-covered cliff wall.

The large population of manta rays here also make it a unique diving experience.

Surin IslandsAt the end of the cruise, we’ll visit the Surin Islands.

They are a marine national park close to the border with Burma.

They are home to the Chao Leh, the traditional sea gypsies of the Andaman Sea.

Surin Islands reef fishBoth the main islands offer jungle tours, with fantastic white beaches cropping up along the way.

The islands are known for their calm waters and beautiful coral, which make them perfect for snorkeling.

They also offer a number of great diving spots.

The visibility here is lower than in the Similans, but the huge amount of fish more than makes up for it.
