Liveaboard Diving Similan Surin Richelieu Rock, Phuket Phi Phi Hin Daeng

The Similan, Surin & Richelieu Rock

The Similan, Surin Island & Richelieu Rock represent some of the best diving in the Andaman Sea. These world class dive sites are conveniently accessible from Phuket based liveaboards and should on the top of the list for divers visiting South East Asia.

The Surin Island National Marine Park is located 85km north of the Similan Islands and 80km west of Ranong the most Northern port on the West Coast of Thailand. The Surin Islands, although visited by several dive operators from Phuket, are more appropriately famous for their beautiful coves, bays and dense jungle than they are for their diving. The two islands between the Similan Islands and the Surin Island National Marine Park, called Koh Bon & Koh Tachai are absolutely fantastic dive sites offering just about everything divers can wish for. These two spots are hard to top but Richelieu Rock to the Northeast is world class and is one of the best dive sites in the Kingdom of Thailand.

Richelieu Rock is located about 200km North of Phuket and is known world wide as one of the most spectacular sites in Thailand. Close to the Southern border of Burma and this isolated pinnacle rises up from the sandy bottom at a depth of about 35m to just below the surfaces at low tide. Covered in soft corals, anemones and sea fans it offers an amazing variety of marine life with Morays, Shrimps, Crown fish, Frogfish, Pipefish, Sea horses and Scorpion fish upon the reef. Stingrays, Guitar rays, Leopard and Black tip sharks and large schools of Trevallies, Tuna and Barracudas cruise the wall. Between February and May is the best season to see Whale sharks & Manta rays when the water temperature is higher bringing more plankton to the area attracting these gentle giants.

The Similan, Surin & Richelieu Rock trip can be combined with trip to Hin Daeng/Hin Muang.
