There is no thinking to do on this ship. They take care of everything for you. Put on your equipment and head for the skiff. Your fins are already in there. You are surrounded by supporting hands and it's just impossible to make a mistake.The food is very good, even for a picky eater for me.

Jonathan, our cruise diirector, is the best. Patient, funny, relaxing and well organized. He really makes you feel like you're on vacation and there is never any pressure. The staff are always on top of things.

Loved my trip!

Happy to be back on the Junk, with Marco as Tourleader and Brian as my guide,
That reminded me of my very first trip to the Similans.
Meeting Jerome and Oliver again was fantastic.
Awesome diving, best service on the boat, Bee cheering up everyone and Pina doing miracles in the tiny kitchen.
This crew is the best I ever had the pleasure to sail with.
I also want to mention the fantastic customer care by Kerry in the office.

I will be back. Sure.

The junk is defenitely the most beautiful liveaboard boat. The 6 day trip was great, the crew is very helpful, the diving was amazing and the food is the best. We were lucky and did 6 dives at richelieu rock. Could have done 20 more dives there. So much to see.

Food was great, there was plenty to eat. The crew was friendly and helpful. They had a med drawer with anything you might need, such as sea sickness tablets or ear drops. Beds were a bit hard for what we are used to, but others thought they were fine. After the first night we were so tired from diving all day we had no trouble sleeping. I will suggest that they somehow attach the garbage cans in the bathroom to the wall, when we had some rough water it fell over twice, which is not fun to deal with when you can't flush the toilet paper. The highlight of the trip was Richelieu Rock, which we did several dives at. I would definitely come on board The Junk again if we return to Thailand.

The Junk had broken it's prop shaft a day before we were due to spend the week diving on it. Although every effort was made to accommodate our diving on another vessel it just wasn't the Junk! Plus it was a shorter trip, however, the Junk did meet us for the last two days of diving which although was fantastic did make us see what we missed! We communicated with well and offered alternatives by the boss of the Junk no less who met us personally at the port. For the short time we spent in the boat we loved it. Very knowledgeable and informative, chilled guides who have very sharp eyes for macro subjects and rate species. Will be back for the whole weeks experience.

The crew was totally awesome and responsive. Jonathan teaches very nicely. His experience helped me learn steeply. The choice of dive sites were awesome. A diver with only 4 dives learnt a lot! Food was great. The ship is the coolest. Love it's history.

I went diving with a company in Koh Tao. They advised us to go diving with The Junk. I immediately got excited when I looked on their website. I watched their videos on Facebook as well. I didn't want to miss out on this liveaboard! I mailed the owner, Steve, like a million times with all my little stupid questions. He was so patient and really explained everything in detail. On the boat the crew was just as nice and relaxed. The food is perfect and the double cabin was really comfortable. The diving instructors picked really nice diving spots and we saw some really nice animals.

No fullsuits available so if you get cold as quickly as me.... bring your own one for some extra comfort.

I can work by family and we all had a,terrific time. The Junk is very atmospheric. A terrific team led very ably and generously by Jonathan.

The food will keep you busy when you aren't diving or sleeping. The team worked around some confidence issues one of my team had and them diving ok again by the end. Thank you. Wonderful sightin of four Mantas on Second day. Great team of guests. Very international. We had an excellent time and I would have no hesitation in recommending this boat and team.

Our trip was simply incredible. The Junk is such a beautiful boat with so much character, I loved it. The crew was absolutely amazing, helping everywhere they can (especially gearing up) and being so friendly and funny. The food was very delicious, I'm really gonna miss it. The dive guides did a great job taking care of the divers, showing us the interesting things underwater and explaining us what we didn't know. Too bad it was only a 4 days trip and not a 6 days one, I would gave loved to stay longer and enjoy the good company (and also see the Junk sailing, of course). I'd totally recommend the Junk to every diver (and non-diver, since it's so beautiful) that's planning to go diving in Thailand.
