Poseidon Bungalows & Surin Tours – Same owners but all new websites!
Most frequent questions and answers
The old similan tours site served us well for many years. However we decided to create a separate site for our beach bungalows and our liveaboard tours. Our new websites are much more informative, user-friendly and mobile responsive.
The Similan Islands became just too popular with day trippers arriving on speed boats from Phuket. Severe overcrowding has impacted on the quality of the coral reefs and made it more difficult to encounter less common marine species like sea horses and dolphins. Though further away, the Surin Islands are in much better shape, far less crowded and still offer the best snorkeling sites in Thailand!
The 16m “Choke Duang Ta” has a maximum of only 17 guests on board, along with her 5 crew. This keeps life on board more relaxed and comfortable. Our liveaboard is far less overwhelming than the larger dive/snorkeling boats which also visit Surin. Unlike the larger, more crowded dual purpose boats that have noisy air compressors on board, our vessel is a dedicated snorkel boat and far more quiet than the dive boats.
We have recently built a modest swimming pool overlooking the sea. Plans are afoot to renovate many of our bathrooms and install air conditioning in some of our larger stone bungalows for the coming high season.
