A day trip to the Similan Islands is one of the "Top Boat Trips" in Thailand
Other beautiful boat trips: Ko Tachai -- James Bond Island -- Chiew Lan Lake
For day trips to the Similan Islands various types of boats are available.
The fastest way is by speedboat which takes little more than one hour, although in rough seas this can be very uncomfortable and a terrible strain on the spine.
The slower converted fishing boats take nearly three hours to get there, but it is a relaxing time, in which the staff do their utmost to make this an enjoyable part of your holiday.
In between are some excellent dive boats that are tailor made for this trip. 
In Khao Lak Town various Tour companies offer day trips, e.g.
