2 day 1 night Similan Islands liveaboard

Snorkeling, diving and beach excursions.

dive platformThere are many liveaboards exclusively for scuba divers at the Similan Islands, most of them are not suitable to snorkelers.

MV Koon offers an option for snorkelers, or people who want to do a few scuba dives but also want to snorkel and see the islands. Ideal for less experienced divers, or dive/non dive couples.

Operated by Andaman Seastar, you basically join the speedboat day trip for the morning of day 1, then at midday move to the liveaboard boat until midday on day 2, when you return to the mainland with the day trip speedboat.

The boat is simple and clean. There are just 7 cabins (so book early) with bunk beds. Cabins have AC. Bathrooms are shared. The food served on board is delicious and plentiful.

The price includes a dive guide, dive equipment, Similan national park fees and diver permits, all meals and transfers from most Phuket hotels.

    1. We are interested in booking the 2 day 1 night for 2 snorkelers and 2 open water divers. The bathroom is shared – are there dedicated shared bathrooms so we could have our own between the two cabins (4 of us) or are they shared with the whole boat? Is there another longer 3 day option with private bathrooms that also includes snorkelers? Thank you.

    2. I and my friends are non-certified divers with just 1 or 2 dives, so can we join the lievaboard?

    3. are the locations where you are diving, shallow enough for snorkelers to see marine life?
