This season Green Andaman Travel are introducing a unique snorkel liveaboard to our extensive list of Khao Lak tours. This snorkel liveaboard departs from Khao Lak or Kura Buri (alternating departure points) for a 3 day 3 night trip through the Similan Islands and Surin Islands. It is run by a great team who we have known for many years. We are sure that this will be an unforgettable trip to some beautiful destinations in the Andaman Sea.
A Unique Similan Snorkel Liveaboard – The Reggae Queen
The Reggae Queen (MV Sawan) is the lively snorkel liveaboard for this adventure through the Similan and Surin Islands. The name of the boat says it all – this is one fun, laid back and interesting excursion from Khao Lak. German run, this is a trip full of laughter and relaxing times in the Similans.
Deserted Surin and Similan Snorkel Desitinations
What makes this Similan snorkel liveaboard different? The Reggae Queen is the only one to visit the Surin islands.
The Surin Islands are less visited that the Similans, this means that they are less developed and the wildlife is barely disturbed. The Reggae Queen takes you to secret spots in the Surin Islands where you can walk amongst the shallow waters in the mangroves with baby sharks. This trip also focusses on avoiding the crowds. As soon as the speedboats pull into Koh Tachai the Reggae Queen is out of there and onto more idyllic locations for the day.
Snorkel Discovery In The Andaman Sea
Sleep on board the Reggae Queen and wake up at empty locations in the most amazing sites in the Similan and Surin Islands. Delicious Thai food is served between snorkel stops and there is plenty of time for sitting on deck and relaxing on the comfortable bean bags laid out for you. Other activities include a visit to the Sea Gypsy village on the Surin Islands, adding a cultural aspect to the trip, as well as some nature walks through some of the on land national park destinations. On these islands you might see monitor lizards, hornbills and chicken crabs in the wild.
Green Andaman Travel would be happy to help you organise your Similan snorkel liveaboard from Khao Lak. We can even arrange transfers from the airport, taking care of you from start to finish.
