You will be disappointed. Way too many people. Damaged Riffs. All the tourism destroyed the beautiful landscape. It is not worth to book this trip.

The bad reviews on here are absolutely justified. The speedboat ride is uncomfortable even in calm-ish weather. To be endured rather than enjoyed. However, as sailors we were fine and it's worth it... You absolutely must book an early departure tour. We were picked up...More

Beautiful blue cristal water but absolutely crowded. Bad snorkeling. Very bad organization of the tour agency (LikeAndaman): delayed, all the time in a hurry with no time to stay in each island (even less than 20min), lunch at first stop and high speed with bad...More

I booked a 7 dives Tour with south Siam for Similan Islands. It was nice, with clear water and many Fishes to See. On the second last dives a night swarm of hundreds or maybe a thousand big Barrakudas circled around our group.

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!
