Similan Queen Diving Center Owner

Ric White Similan Queen Diving & The Andaman Phuket Hotel
Ric White has been diving for most of his 61 years, having learned in Adelaide South Australia in the 60′s. He purchased the Phuket Dive Boat “The Similan Queen” from Aloha Tours at Chalong in November 2012. It was not in a good condition and he spent a considerable amount of money bringing it back to a HIGH standard of Safety and compliance, this work took about 6 months to complete and was finished just before June 2013.

Ric also purchased in November 2012 The Andaman Phuket Hotel in Patong and began the task of bringing The Phuket HotelThe Phuket Dive Shop and The Phuket Dive Boat together to form the union that it is today. We are the only facility in Phuket, if not Thailand that has it’s own Dive Shop, Dive Boat and 60 Room Hotel and can give you great packages to come to Phuket to not only Dive but Snorkeling as well, so you can explore the many waters around Thailand.
