Phuket liveaboard diving
Phuket International airport (HKT) is the airport of arrival for divers doing liveaboard safaris to the Similan Islands, Surin Islands, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock. Most liveaboards depart from Khao Lak which is just 70 minutes taxi ride from Phuket. Phuket liveaboards also head into the south Andaman to dive the amazing Hin Daeng, Hin Muang, Koh Haa and Phi Phi Islands.
A multi day liveaboard safari is the best way to get the best diving at the best dive sites at the best times. A liveaboard maximizes your chances of seeing manta rays and whale sharks.
The Similan Island liveaboard season is from November to April. You can do a trip as short as 2 days 1 night although we would recommend 3 or 4 nights to get around all the best dive sites in the Similan and Surin archipelagos.
