The dive guides and staff on board were friendly and professional. My dive guide, Mayumi, is very experienced and was great at spotting cool stuff to see underwater. One... More

I've been on the Dolphin Queen now SEVEN times in one year. I can't say enough about these guys - Janice, Gabriel, Josu, Mayumi and the incredible crew that does all the cooking and even puts your fins on for you. These guys are like family to me now and the service is out of this world. The food is... More

Spend 3 days with the SDS guys around the Similan Islands and it was the best. Great instructors, super dive spots, fantastic atmosphere on the boat - in total a magnificent experience. You don't even need to bring O2, Ana Cardeña will bring it for you😉
