About Simba

18 Years of Premium Tours in Thailand

Small Group Tours - Beat the Crowds

Simba Sea Trips has been Australian owned and managed from it’s conception in 2005, to offer exclusive island excursions for tourists visiting Phuket. We had heard so many disappointing stories of people crammed onto old boats like cattle who had not been given the experience they had been promised. We aspired to change all this by providing visitors with the best tours in Phuket.

Best Tours

At Simba we are all about quality, and we leave no stone unturned in our efforts to offer the best boat tours Thailand has to offer.

Safe and Fun

Our boats and crew are maintained and trained to the highest levels of marine safety standards. Our reliability and accident free record over 18 years in operation is testament to this.

Local Ecology

With a passion for the sea and environmentalists at heart, we love and care for our beautiful, ecological surroundings and just as important, is our love of the Thai people and their rich cultures.
