The Junk Liveaboard is known as "The Junk". In fact The Junk Liveaboard, whose real name is The June Hong Chiang Lee, is actually a traditional Malaysian-built Chinese Junk. She was part of a merchant fleet until 1995 when she was renovated and turned into The Junk Liveaboard. She is now probably the most noticeable Liveaboard in the Similan or Surin Islands.

Having been refurnished again recently, The Junk Liveaboard now has en-suite cabins with massive amounts of relaxation space. This includes a large air-conditioned saloon and sun deck where guests have been known to sleep under the stars on. On The Junk Liveaboard you can even get a Thai massage upon request!

There is a huge dive platform on The Junk Liveaboard. This along with 2 large tenders (ribs) ensures you get dropped in on the best dive site entry point possible. And get picked up when you have finished your dive.
