One of the best-known Similan Islands liveaboard diving boats is MV Peter Pan. This 27m vessel has been running dive cruises to Thailand’s best dive sites for a number of years, and still offers possibly the best balance of comfort at the right price. No more than 20 guests join each diving cruise to The Similans, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai & Richelieu Rock.

There are three cabin types on Peter Pan, all able to accommodate two guests in air-conditioned comfort without breaking the bank. In the lower deck there are budget twins and a budget double bed cabin. On the upper deck there are twin bunks, with large windows, and on the main deck there are twin bed cabins and the master cabin, which has an en suite shower.

The dive staff, local crew & chef on Peter Pan all have a great reputation, and give guests a friendly but professional service. The divers are put into groups of no more than four per Divemaster guide, and taken good care of both underwater and on board. There are beach excursions, snorkel opportunities and plenty of areas to catch up on your tan, socialize with others or just enjoy the sea breeze.

Dining on Peter Pan is done at the back of the main deck, in a covered open air area, and there is also an air-conditioned indoor lounge saloon for showing or watching media and taking a break from outside. The dive platform is large enough for everyone to move around and enter the water safely in groups. Nitrox fills are available, as are PADI courses. 

Some other websites show the 5-night trips to be six days in length, but considering that you join the boat in the evening, dive for four days, and leave in the morning, we prefer to show them as 4D / 5N. Also the 3D/3N trips are sometimes shown elsewhere to be 4D/3N, but we feel that is misleading.

Booking / Enquiry

There are two main trip types on Peter Pan, although you might notice a couple more 'special trips' on the schedule.

The most-common trip is the 4D/5N Similan - Richelieu trip. You join in the evening, dive for four full days (Similan Islands, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai, Surin Islands, Richelieu Rock & local wrecks). Then on the final day you disembark the boat in the morning after breakfast. Other websites often show these trips to be 6D/5N, but you only dive for four days, so we prefer to show them like we do.

There are also some 3D/3N trips, which some websites advertise as 4D/3N. These trips also start in the evening. You go to Koh Bon, Koh Tachai, Surin, Richelieu Rock & local wrecks, then on the final day you disembark in the late afternoon / early evening.

Please check below for more details.

The itineraries below are the most-common for each trip, but these can sometimes be changed for a number of reasons. Small changes are made due to weather & sea conditions, special marine life sightings, overcrowded dive sites, local-authorities' instructions, and the needs & requests of the paying guests. The safety & comfort of all guests is most important at all times.

Not only is MV Peter Pan a great-value Similans liveaboard to do fun dives from, it is also one of the best and least expensive to take part in a PADI diving course while on board. There is a wide selection of diving courses that can be completed while you enjoy your cruise around the tropical waters of the Similan and Surin Islands. 

Please note that the dives are not ‘extra to the cruise.’ They are part of your chosen cruise package, but you will be taught by a qualified and experienced PADI instructor for that many of your Peter Pan liveaboard cruise dives.
