Similan & Surin Nationalpark


Due to the corona crisis, we have to cancel the 2020/21 season and hope that we can continue next year ...

There are already many day trips in the Similan or Surin National Park, which are specially tailored for snorkelers and are carried out with speedboats.

Of course, since we are a diving school, we are primarily concerned with meeting the needs of divers on our boats - be they absolute beginners or professionals.
However, many divers also bring with them their non-diving family members or friends whom we want to take care of on certain days. Tours to Similan Islands are good for snorkeling and to the Surin Islands for snorkeling and beginner courses.

These tours with our spacy High-speed Catamaran take place on Monday, Friday and Saturday
Surin tours taking place only as an alternative if there are no tickets available for the Similan Islands.

1. For bookings, we need the first name, family name, nationality, date of birth and passport number

About Surin Islands


Since there is more than enough information about the Similan Islands, we would like to take this opportunity to write a little more about Surin Islands, which we visit twice a week.

Surin Island is in Mu Koh Surin National Park, found some 60 km off the west coast of Phang Nga province, and 80 km north of the Similan Island #9, is an archipelago of 5 islands:
Koh Surin Nuea, Koh Surin Tai, Koh Ri, Koh Khai, and Koh Klang.

The excellent diving & snorkelling are what most visitors come for. The main island of Surin Nuea has several bays, the largest being Ao Mae Yai on the southwest, which features calm waters and safe anchorage. On the southeast side is Ao Luek, which has shallow corals and an abundance of marine life. Ao Mai Ngam is where the National Park's office is found, as well as a 2-kilometre walking path. There's good snorkelling and swimming here off its long beach. Ao Chak at the north of Surin Nuea is a beautiful bay of pristine coral reefs.
