My wife and I did a day tour out to the islands from Patong. The water and sand were amazing. We definitely enjoyed our time out there. On the negative side of the trip, there are a lot of tour operators which means lots of...More

Well choose your days before you head off to similan island. The pamphlets show beautiful calm water which I am sure is true most of the time. However be warned it takes hours to get there miles and miles off shore and we felt like...More

We were only able to take a day trip out to the Similan Islands, but it was well worth the trip. The speedboat ride is a little long, but upon arrival everything was worth it. We were able to enjoy some snorkeling with schools of...More

We visited Island #8 (I think) as a part of a 3 day / 3 night SCUBA liveaboard. This was a quick stop after a morning dive and worth a look. We climbed to the top of Sail Rock and took a couple of panoramas...More

Beautiful surroundings but you suddenly realize you became part of an industrial complex. We arrived there, island no. 4, first boat in the morning. Instructions to walk barefoot, not to smoke, not to pick up or let down anything made sense. Than you start to...More

+ Beautiful nature, crystal clear water - Unbelievable amount of tourists destroys the image - Not as good snorkling as it says. Corals dead, not many fish

We did the Similian Islands day tour and it was very typical of tours. You are in paradise but with many other people. You then only have a short time to go off on your own before you are whisked away to another Island. If...More

So second visit. Quite busy, but only during the daytime. If you're there overnight it's very peaceful. The islands are very beautiful. Huge granite boulders tumbling into the sea, very much like the Seychelles. Lovely beaches, but crowded with day trippers during sun up. I...More

Hey! I will be visiting south Thailand in two weeks and I heard great things about over-night cruises in similan. On the other hand I read here bad things about day trips to there (crowded boats, bad organization etc...). I have few questions about that: 1.Most important- I will arrive to khao lak only late in the morning/early afternoon (leaving from khao sok in the morning). Is it possible to get to the cruise the same day or does it mean i'll have to wait for the next day? Even if it means missing some divings I preffer not waiting almost a day at khao lak... 2. Does taking a cruise improves the experience of the islands compared to day trips? and is it recommended even if we stay only 1 night on the cruise? 3. What is the usual price for this (1 night with full acommodation and some divings)? 4. Is it important to book ahead or possible at khao lak? 5. And finally is it possible to leave from khao lak and return to phuket (which is our next destination)? Even if you only have answers to one of the questions I will appreciate it a lot! Thanks!
