I organized to do a 2 day 1 night dive trip to the Similian Islands through Thailand Liveaboards, who linked me in with South Siam divers. I was picked up at 6 am by the SSD team bus drivers, and transported along with 10 others to the port on the mainland some 110 Kms away. This was followed by 1.5... More

It made me put one star to write this review. If I could put negative stars I would. We were lost at sea for two hours. It took the boat an hour to know we were missing and another hour to find us since the current drifted us further than they expected. If it was not for the excellent Thai... More

I joined the day trip diving tour of Similan Islands on 27th December 2016, via "Merlin Divers" which is one of the agent of South Siam Divers. In the second diving, as soon as I came into 8 meters depth in the water, I noticed the waters couldn't be out from my mouth. I tried it out again and again... More

A big thank you to Adam for your guidance and welcoming message on the boat. The professional though humoured way you treated us made us felt welcomed on board. The neatness and smoothly organised set up before the divers took off for the diving was impressive.

My partner and I have a day off and decided to take another scuba dive from The Pier in Phuket as it is most convenient and has all the diving services. We decide to take a trip with South Siam Divers for the day with 3 dives and the main one to Shark Point. This dive is often included in... More

I did a three dive trip with SSD incorporating King cruiser wreck, shark point and Koh Dok Mai, the diving was good even though the vis wasn't the best, there was plenty wild life to see and the food was great, the only slight down side I can think of was there was no picture of the King cruiser in...

We chartered on their boat #4 with another dive company (Bangtao Dive Center) and thought this operation was very good. We had our own dive master through Bangtao Dive Center, but their dive masters seemed very good also. Very professional and kept the groups separate. They were very good at getting the groups in as slightly staggered paces so we... More

We have tried several day-trips with three different operators during the week. I would say this one was the least satisfying. The crew and the dive leader were very nice, nothing to complain about them. However the boat was the smallest and the most packed one among the ones that we have tried. Also the slowest one, the journey took... More

I went with South Siam Divers on two trips - both to the same group of dives, The first dy was unfortunate as we ended up missing the third dive after King Cruiser (Shark Point Dive 3) as we had done 16 minutes deco stop, This was in part down to the briefing - I either missed or wasn't told...
