This unique liveaboard, the SSD4, remains on the Similan & Surin Islands the whole season, unlike other liveaboard boats that travel from and to Khao Lak on fixed schedules.

New guests get a transfer with minibus & speedboat to the live-a-board up to five days of the week!

You can get on and off the liveaboard boat 5 days a week as it tours around the Similans every day of the week. SSD4 dives around the Similan every day of the week except Wednesdays and Sundays when she goes up to Surin island, Richelieu Rock, Koh Tachai & Koh Bon for the day.

To visit Richelieu Rock you need to do 3 or more days on this boat spanning a Wednesday or Sunday. For example, join the boat on Monday or Tuesday and get off on Thursday, Friday or Saturday.

As there is total flexibility you can stay as long as you want (at an extra cost). Just check with the tour leader if there are still spaces available if you wish to extend your trip!

The 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
This luxury liveaboard has a maximum of 28 guests with twelve twin sleeping cabins, two double bed cabins and six bathrooms making this is one of the largest liveaboards operating in the Similan Islands.

You can relax in the saloon area or catch some rays on the large sun deck. On the last day of your liveaboard trip you get the transfer back to Phuket again by speedboat and minibus.

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

Don't forget to calculate your park entry fees and equipment rental costs and bring a towel.

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