The SSD3 is a liveaboard like no other due to that fact that it resides on the Similan Islands for the whole season. This unique element means that there are no fixed schedules unlike other liveaboard boats, granted you a free and easy experience.

SSD3 dives around the Similan every day of the week except Mondays and Thursdays when she goes up to Surin island and Richelieu Rock for the day.
If you are a new guest on our trip you will receive a transfer service by minibus from your hotel in Phuket or Khao Lak. Then every day during the week you a speedboat will take you out to the liveaboard!

As there is no fixed schedule you can stay as long as you want - just pay the extra when you are there, but always remember to check with the tour leader if there are still spaces available if you wish to extend your trip.

This extravagant liveaboard has a maximum of 28 guests. There are twelve tin sleeping cabins, two double bed cabins and six bathrooms! This makes the SSD3 one of the most substantial liveaboards to operate in the Similan Islands, as well as the most luxurious.

Kick back and unwind in the saloon area or get a tan and embrace the eastern rays on our spacious sun deck.

This is the only live-a-board which can offer the flexibility to fit almost any holiday schedule you can come up with.

The planned schedule is:
  • Monday: Similan Islands
  • Tuesday: Similan Islands & Koh Bon
  • Wednesday: Surin Islands & Richelieu Rock
  • Thursday : Similan Islands
  • Friday: Similan Islands
  • Saturday: Similan Islands & Koh Bon
  • Sunday: Surin Islands & Richelieu Rock We provide a free pickup and transfer service back to your hotel in Phuket or Khao Lak.

    Ensure that you calculate your additional parks fees and the cost of your equipment rental for the trip too and don’t forget to bring a towel with you!

    Don't forget for the five day four night trip to calculate your park fees and equipment rental cost and bring a towel with you.

    You will be picked up and returned to your hotel in Phuket or Khao Lak for free.
