Thailand liveaboards are centered primarily around the Similan Islands, a chain of 9 small islands with white sandy beaches, located on the west coast of the Thai peninsula. Surrounded by the richest waters around Thailand, the diving in the Similans is without a doubt the best that Thailand has to offer. Diving here is all about the beautifully colourful reefs, sleepy leopard sharks, majestic mantas and frequent whaleshark encounters.

Liveaboard diving in Thailand is mostly centered around the Similan Islands. The underwater topography is maily comprised of granite boulders forming breathtaking caves and caverns, overhangs and swim throughs. Some of the more popular divesites include Elephant Head Rock, East of Eden, Christmas Point and the world famous Richelieu Rock, the place to see pelegic action when diving in Thailand. Liveaboards diving around this impressive limestone pinnacle will often encounter whalesharks and manta rays. Being one of Thailand's deepest pinnacles, surrounded by nutrient rich water, there are also plenty of sea fans and soft corals abundant with macro critters.
Two of the Similans' most notable islands, situated on the way to Richelieu Rock, are Koh Bon and Koh Tachai. These islands are well known for reef shark and leopard shark sightings, turtles, macro critters as well as being great for night dives!
Diving via liveaboard in Thailand is generally ok for all types of divers, however many sites can be quite deep and, due to being out in open water, there can be some strong currents especially around Elephant Head Rock, Koh Tachai, and Richelieu Rock.... these sites are generally more suited to experienced divers.
