SY June Hong Chian Lee dive boat review

SY June Hong Chian Lee liveaboard was built in Malaysia in 1962 and was used to transport wood charcoal. She was then restored in 1998 and since then, has been running regular tours around some of the Similan Islands best dive sites there is to offer.

Reaching 30 meters in length, she can accommodate up to 18 divers within any of the two double, two triple and two quad bed cabins all located on the lower deck, all equipped with en-suite amenities.

Advanced Open Water Diver and other PADI dive certification courses are available including a free buoyancy workshop, just in case you haven’t dived for a long time.

Another great thing about SY June Hong Chian Lee is that there is a variety of mouth-watering Thai and European dishes on offer, usually around 5-6 per sitting served in buffet style, which is one of the reasons why guests keep coming back to this Similan liveaboard. You can also get your daily dose of complimentary tea and coffee as well as fruits and snacks.
