A warm welcome to our Similan Liveaboard.
Guests for our Similan liveaboard should arrive for an equipment check, payment balance and if needed for an *online dive insurance * from DAN at our PADI 5 star Dive Center no later than 2pm on the departure day. Our Minibus departs from Similan Diving Safaris Dive Center in Khao Lak to Thap Lamu pier (14 km) at 4 o'clock in the afternoon.

Arrival around 4:30pm once on board the Dolphin Queen you will be introduced to our dive staff & boat crew. After you have been shown to your cabin you will be fully briefed with the running of the boat along with the rules and safety procedures on our liveaboard boat, the Dolphin Queen.
Before dinner is a good time to assemble and check your equipment with your Similan dive guide. Ready for your first dive in the Similan Islands the next morning.

We depart at around 6:30pm, so sit back and enjoy the liveaboard with a star filled night sky, arriving around midnight at the Similans. Traveling by night is the best so you can sleep and wake up fresh in the morning for the first of your amazing dives. Dive sites
