About Simba

Get to know us

The company was started in 2005 to offer exclusive island excursions for tourists visiting Phuket. We had heard so many disappointing stories of people crammed on to old boats like cattle and not being given the day they had been promised. We wanted a different approach…

Our mission is to:

  • Provide a safe and fun day out on the water
  • Contribute to the local economy
  • Sustain the local ecology – leave nothing behind

We have a passion for the sea and the beautiful islands surrounding Phuket. The boat crew is made up of local Thai’s, many of whom come from Phuket, Phang Nga and Krabi. We have a good working relationship with all the crew, which stems from us, the owners, respecting their knowledge of local cultures and sea conditions. We also understand the importance of sustaining this truly magnificent ecological wonder, not only for our sake but for the generation who have not seen it yet!

Our Boats

Simba's custom-built speedboats

Simba IV

Simba IV is our dedicated Private Charter Boat. She is a Silvercraft HT 36 built by Gulfcraft in Dubai. With 2 x 300 HP Suzuki engines, she is 10.9 metres long.  There is a hard canopy to protect you from the rain at the rear, an electric toilet and a sound system. Licensed to carry 16 guests, Simba IV is the perfect boat for your own Private Charter.

Simba III

Simba III is made of fibreglass and powered by two Honda Marine 250hp 4-stroke engines. She is equipped with Garmin Marine GPS for accurate water depths. Simba III is 12 metres long and two-thirds of that length are under-canopy for shade.

To aid your entry and exit from the boat, particularly when snorkelling, we have had a unique side-door fitted to the boat. For the convenience of passengers, Simba III carries snorkelling masks and fins, life jackets, floating aids and watertight bags for personal belongings. There is also a toilet and freshwater shower onboard.

Simba III is licensed to carry 26 passengers, though we generally only ever carry a maximum of 16 adults on each tour.
