Similan Islands National Park

The Similan Islands National Park consists of a total of 9 islands; Koh Bon, Koh Bayu, Koh Similan, Koh Payu, Koh Miang (Two adjoining islands), Koh Payan, Koh Payang, and Koh Huyong. Recently, the national park was expanded to include the remote island of Koh Tachai. The main access to the Similan Islands is from the very peaceful area of Khao Lak with Liveaboards commonly running from November until May.

The most important of all dive sites in the Similans, which is actually part of Surin National Park, is Richelieu Rock, famous for its incomparable variety and abundance of marine life. Whale shark sightings are not uncommon here.

The Similan Islands National park is ranked as one of the top 10 diving destinations in the world. The fauna is very rich and you will spot, in addition to the usual reef fish, many Blacktip and Whitetip reef sharks,.Leopard sharks are also very common in the marine reserve. The reef life is teeming with trigger fish, unicornfish and many other species of colourful fish. If you are lucky you can spot Manta rays flying around and even sightings of the biggest fish in the world, the mythical Whale Shark are not uncommon here. 

The coral is also in great shape with a lot of table coral and staghorn coral. Soft coral is everywhere and very colourful. Most of the dive sites are filled with huge granite boulders which offer a fantastic playground for divers.

The most important of all dive sites in the Similans, which is actually part of Surin National Park, is Richelieu Rock, famous for its incomparable variety and abundance of marine life. Not to be missed.

For those who live to dive, a Liveaboard trip to the Similan Islands is a truly unforgettable experience not to be missed.
