Liveaboard trips to the Similan Islands depart from either Phuket or Khao Lak. Many Liveaboard operators that operate out of Phuket actually bus you up to Khao Lak prior to departure , as it is the shortest distance to the Similans. Trips to the Similan Islands depart once or twice per week throughout high season, typically from late October through to mid April. However, trips can also be customised to suit your timeframe and budget.
