Depending on the weather, you can usually visit most of the archipelago if you choose yacht rental in the Similan Islands. Most people arrive via Koh Similan, the largest island, and while it can be busy, it’s an incredibly beautiful spot. You can dive amongst the coral reefs and swim among turtles and exotic fish. With diving depths of up to 131 feet, both beginner and experienced scuba divers will love it here. If you charter a boat, you can get to some of the best scuba diving spots and find places to dive where you are alone.
Koh Tachai is the island that’s one of the most popular for scuba diving. Hire a private yacht in the Similan Islands, and you can visit this coral-rich island and discover some of the amazing diving sites yourself. The Koh Tachai Plateau comes highly recommended and is about 1km offshore. The current brings in huge schools of fish you’ll see among the coral, and you’ll sometimes see playful rays and whale sharks too. Koh Bon also has lots of giant manta rays, which often swim up close to visitors in the ocean. This smaller island is about an hour away from Koh Similan and is perfect for a day trip when you are island hopping. It’s also a great place for spending time on the beach. There are some beautiful sandy beaches, with coconut trees for shade and small beachfront restaurants to enjoy. If you’ve hired a yacht, you can drop anchor and watch the sunset from your boat, as well as amazing views of the island.
