Considered to be the best scuba diving in Thailand, the Similan islands on the west coast, 60 nautical miles from Phuket offer a range of different underwater landscapes, coral, and marine life.
Undoubtedly one of the top scuba locations in the world, the Similan Islands by liveaboard is an excellent way for both new and seasoned divers alike to experience living and diving from a boat with the chance of unique encounters, large and small.
The rocky underwater landscapes of the south, with boulders, huge coral fans, and the possibility of shark sitings, to the beautiful coral gardens of the northern Similan islands, teeming with reef fish and macro opportunities.
If you are looking for an extra special dive boat for your next Similan Islands dive holiday, the Junk exudes uniqueness. Having even been featured in a James Bond movie, she gets our vote as the most unique dive yacht in Thailand.
The June Hong Chian Lee is one of several junks built in Penang, Malaysia, and is a 30-meter-long, 140-ton, three-mast junk with 330 square meters of sails.
The Junk is a perfect choice for a Similan diving experience in grand style with a taste of history. Having been transversing the area for many years, the long-serving crew is highly knowledgeable and will ensure a safe trip while enjoying Thailand’s best diving.
The Junk was completely renovated as a dive liveaboard in 1997 and can accommodate 18 divers. There are two private cabins with convertible twin/double beds, 2 three berths cabins, which can be shared twins and turned into a private double bed, and 2 four berths cabins, which are all bunks but can be used as shared twins. All the cabins are air-conditioned and have a hot water shower and ensuite bathroom.
The Junk has long been a favourite for the excellent balance of diving, relaxation, and superb Thai food.
The varied, high-quality vegan and plant-based options from the Junk kitchen make this liveaboard a firm ‘must’ on your up-and-coming dive holiday plan.
Infinite Blue work closely with the crew to ensure your vegan | plant-based needs are well cared for.
From the awe-inspiring granite landscapes of Sharkfin Reef, Boulder City, and Elephant Head Rock, to the Pelagic sites of Koh Bon and Koh Tachai Pinnacle, onwards to Jacque Cousteau’s Richelieu Rock and the mysterious beauty of the Surin Islands.
