Dive And Cruise Thailand Liveaboard - Similan Explorer Reviews
Suzana was a perfect instructor, well listening for my second dive. And it was a day trip very well organised. Everything was good: the dive spot, boat, people and food!
I had the pleasure of doing a 5 day live aboard on the Similan Explorer back in May. Luca and his team are extremely knowledgeable and know the islands well. I liked the small groups, which also made it easy to get to know everyone. The boat was nice and comfortable. The boat crew was top notch, warm and welcoming. The food...OMG the food! It was outstanding!
I looked at other companies but they were more commercialized and larger groups. I'm glad I went with the Similan Explorer for a more relaxed experience. Luca and his team have a way of making you feel like home. I can't think of a better way to spend 5 days!
One of the best diving companies I have dived with. The Similan maritime park is one of the top 3 spots in Asia. Highly advisable. It's also maybe the cheapest option for a live on board in SEA.
I've been three times on the Similan Explorer. Last year for the first time I did the 5 days live aboard and this year I did it again twice in a row! What else to say if not after the first experience I already knew I had to come back again...and so I did!!! Yes, because when you step on the Similan Explorer you feel like home, all the crew and the captain are very friendly, dive masters and dive instructors are professional, reliable and always helpful!
Diving sites are just amazing, thanks to your guide you will discover lots of different species who lives underwater, you will be enchanted by the millions of colors all around you, fishes, corals, sponges...water is warm and visibility excellent and if you will be lucky you could swim with the whale shark, giant mantas and other very cool stuff!!!
Last thing but very important...great food!!! We had to eat after each dive and you can choose among a great variety of different food thanks to the chef who works hard to satisfy everyone!
A big thanks to all The staff of Similan Explorer and to Luca (The boss)...hope to see you all very soon!!!
Great staff, great location. I've spent 5 great days in Similan Explorer and really enjoyed the stay.. Warm water and wonderful big and small creatures..Dive guides with a great knowledge of fish and dive sites...
A must dive place!
This is my forth year in a row taking trips with DAC on the Similan Exploer. I love the trips so much that I have scheduled few trips with Similan Exploer this year. There were other return divers on my recent trip. The dive-masters are experienced, love what they do, and keep a great atmosphere going through out the trip. The Thai captain is perfect at getting us over the dive sites and his precision at picking us up after the dives is an art form. I think he gets his focus from doing yoga on the top deck every evening after the boat is anchored. I feel safe on this boat. Go diving with them and you will have fun!
After spending the last few years fun diving in different countries around Asia i decided to level up and pass my Dive Master training.
And going to Similan diving Safari was the best choice i could have made !
I rarely seen a dive shop so well organized, from the welcoming of the divers and equipment fitting to the way back from the boat and cleaning, without forgetting the dive briefing and the time sent on the boat and underwater, everything was well thought, well known and well done.
I spent a really great time on the Dolphin queen Boat, the crew is awesome, both the diving crew and the friendly Thai crew, the food was great and the diving amazing.
I received what i was looking for, a very complete and professional training by seriously skilled and enthusiast persons in a very cool environment.
It was a lot to learn, to study and to practice, and i was exhausted after a month, but always happy and with a huge smile on my face.
Special thank to my instructor Kate whom is a terrific teacher and diver, serious and lots of fun at the same time :).
I was really impressed by her implication in my training and by the quality of the OW and AOW she offered to other students while i was assisting.
Only bad point of this experience, it makes you want to stay on this boat forever :)
Hope to see you all again for some more amazing diving !
