The Junk is part of the Worldwide Dive and Sail Fleet, which means you will get quality service and a trained team.

Boat interior

The Junk has only 6 cabins, and all of them have facilities in the cabins. Because of the small capacity, you can rely on personal service. In between dives, boat guests can spend time in an indoor lounge with lots of entertainment facilities. Passengers can use the boat’s small library, watch TV, or use the camera table. There is also a spacious outdoor area for relaxing.

Dive deck

The Junk’s spacious dive deck has storage facilities for gear. Divers who travel without their own diving equipment can rent it on board. The yacht also has a diving platform and 2 diving tenders.

Safety

The Junk is equipped with all the necessities to ensure your safety on board: life vests, life rafts, fire extinguishers, and first-aid kits.

Itineraries

The Junk has the most attractive Thailand itineraries to the Similan Islands and Richelieu Rock. The Similan Islands have hard corals that cover the slopes down to the bottom, soft corals, and large gorgonians. This area is rich with fish life. Some types of sharks are often seen here, like leopard sharks and whitetip and blacktip reef sharks. While diving in the Similans you can also encounter batfish, snapper, barracudas, surgeonfish, and unicornfish. Turtles, barracudas, and octopi often visit the shallow areas with canyons. The dive spots in the Similan Islands are diverse and interesting, even for experienced divers. Richelieu Rock has spectacular underwater scenery with colorful corals and schools of trevallies and snapper. Sometimes manta rays and whale sharks visit this dive spot.

When to go

The high season for visiting the Similans is early November through May. Between February and April, the visibility and water temperature are more stable. To dive at Richelieu Rock, it is better to choose a time between November to April. 

The Junk is a superb boat for those who want to feel the true atmosphere of a diving safari in Thailand
