Description

South Siam 3 allows a customized dive safari from 1 day on, as it ventures to the pristine and amazing underwater sites of the Similan Islands

The unique dive safari experience on the liveaboard South Siam 3 allows Divers to customize their perfect dive vacation. Divers can hop on or off this comfortable and roomy Diver designed vessel to enjoy a fascinating journey of discovery at some of the best Similan sites, featuring Koh Bon, Tachai, Surin and Richelieu Rock. Divers will experience gorgeous hard coral gardens, vibrant reefs, large bommies rising from the sea beds blanketed with soft corals, fan corals, breathtaking marine topography and diverse marine life.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

South Siam 3 liveaboard stays around the Similan Islands for the season, unlike other liveaboard boats that travel from and to Phuket on fixed schedules. We transfer new guests to our liveaboard boats by minibus and speedboat every day of the week. You stay on the boat for as many nights as you wish to book, while we continue to cruise around our special dive sites.

The liveaboard South Siam 3 is 98 feet (30m) long and its English speaking crew goes above and beyond to ensure every guest has the best possible dive holiday. This ultimate Dive Safari liveaboard has 14 cabins which can accommodate 28 guests. The liveaboard cabins include 12 Twin cabins and 2 Double bed cabins. Each air-conditioned liveaboard cabin comes complete with an ocean view window and daily housekeeping. The comfortable yacht cabins are very roomy for a liveaboard and are ideal for sleeping and resting between dives. Towels are not provided for guests to use.

On South Siam 3, guests will enjoy plentiful and mouthwatering food to fuel the adventures on this dive safari.

Three meals a day are served buffet style to ensure every appetite and palate is satisfied. Vegetarian options are offered. Meals are served in the air-conditioned dining area complete with the backdrop of the crystal blue water and exotic archipelago islands.

The spacious accommodation on South Siam 3 ensures guests will find the perfect place for privacy and relaxation between dives.

South Siam 3 liveaboard yacht has a spacious air-conditioned Salon and a shaded Sun Deck with lounge chairs. Guests may wander the roomy yacht or work on their tan on the Main Deck.
