Boat Description

The Junk' also known as June Hong Chian Lee was built in Malaysia in 1962, where the boat became part of a small merchant fleet. Today, June Hong is completely refurbished and has become a stunning liveaboard cruising Thailand. The Junk can carry 18 divers, within 6 cabins which are fully air-conditioned and have an en-suite. Guests can choose from 2 double-berth private cabins, 2 three-berth cabins or 2 four-berth cabins, making this boat ideal for solo-travellers. Inside the saloon is a 42 TV to entertain guests as well as a library of movies, books, and games. Dine inside or outside before heading to the sun deck to watch the sunset. Guests can choose to spend 4 or 6 nights diving the Similan Islands, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai, Richelieu Rock, Surin, and the Khao Lak Wrecks or head out on the 'Southern Explorer' itinerary. Highlights of the trip are Shark Point, Koh Bida Nok, Anemone Reef as well as the islands of Koh Phi Phi and Koh Haa.
