I went alone on board with Diva Andaman for Similan Trip early this year. By memory, everything was great: diving, crew, boat, cabin, food... Our group not only saw mantas, turtles, lots of tropic fish life, we even met the beautiful whale shark twice during the 5D6N trip. Everything was very good, I enjoyed the Similan once again! Highly recommend to all divers!
