SIMILANS – DESTINATION FOR THE PERFECT LIVE-ABOARD CRUISES


The Similan Islands and – further up north – the Surin Islands National Marine Parks offer world class scuba diving, usually undertaken on live-aboard dive cruises lasting several days. Compared to other dive regions around Thailand, everything in the Similans is very big and deep – expect most of the dives to be planned between 15 – 25 meters. Even for day dives it pays to bring a powerful dive torch to bring out the vibrant colours of the soft coral colonies and massive sea fans. With a bit of luck, dives at the Similans may surprise you with the encounters of manta rays or even whale sharks.

PENDING 3D MODEL OF THE HTMS PRATHONG

The HTMS Prathong located off the island of Ko Prathong is the sister ship of the HTMS Chang which was sunk off Ko Chang, and both 100m long vessels share the same overall design. While the completion of the 3D wreck model of the Prathong Wreck is pending (a proper dive survey and videography needs to be done first), you may already study the wreck’s layout with the help of the Chang’s 3D model here:
