Diving liveaboard 1999 till present
In 1997 the Junk changed hands again. The next owners signed the contract to buy the junk on 8-8-97 and spend the whole of 1998 restoring and rebuilding the Junk
An old Chinese carpenter came out of retirement to oversee the job. It took a team of about 15 carpenters more than a year to rebuild this ship. More than 60 Ton of teak was used for this restauration.
December 1998 she had her first cruise with friends and owners to Burma. In January 1999 she had her first paying customers going on a truly unique liveaboard cruise to the Similan Islands and beyond.
Starting from 8 October 2014 the Junk operates under her new owner Wordwide Dive and Sail. The company operates a range of different brands for diving and
trips in Asia and the Pacific. For more information please visit: www.wwdas.com

A beautiful boat furnished with great taste and full functionality, couldn't be better! Good thing it was only a 3 day trip or I'd be getting fat soon.. Delicious meals and creative and varied, it was a pleasure.
I'm absolutely coming back for a longer trip with the Junk to the Similans/Richelieu islands. Perfect boat, crew, dive master, simply a memorable experience! Thank you!

The Junk is an amazing boat, the crew and atmosphere on-board were 2nd to none, the food and drinks were also very good. We, my wife and family had such an AMAZING time, and saw some really cool marine life. I'm fairly new to diving but this was the best trip so far, by a long way! I can’t wait to come and "sea" you guys again next year. All the best to all on-board and have a fantastic season it was a real pleasure.

Diving sites were obviously chosen for quality. Dive and boat crew made experience outstanding and one-of-a-kind. Excellent accommodations. Crew brief and housekeeping increased quality of living areas.

Special ship, excellent crew, food and diving! It doesn't get better than this. I liked the relaxed pace also.
Roosje De Leeuwe, Thailand December 2015
A fantastic mix of dive sight expertly guided. Diving timed perfectly to have the reefs to ourselves. Huge shoals of tuna trevally's, rainbow runners and emperor fish feasting on vast swaths of glass fish.....an amazing and awesome sight. How wonderful to be breathless after 20 years of diving.
Tim Hobin, Thailand December 2015
Amazing food. Great staff, slick and efficient dive ops. I was shooting a story for a major travel publication and the crew, especially Jonathan, was very helpful and happy to help me get my shots. Probably the moist relaxed yet professional crew ever encountered. Safety was always first but fun was the priority. Fun unique boat.
Caine Delacy, Thailand November 2015

Richard Owen, Thailand Feb 2015
Everything was perfectly arranged. Great staff, a job well done. I would love to come back and enjoy the live aboard on the Junk. Thanks for
The best way to describe a project such as the junk 'June Hong Chian Lee' is as being, 'authentically renovated' but she is much, much, more than that. Nowadays mixing together the old and the new has become somewhat of a traditional necessity but inconspicuously blending them together creates pure magic.
Dinner was fantastic. I wanted to eat more and more but my stomach didn't allow me. After all our dives we started to put up the sails, which is hard to do and you appreciate the crew members for all their work they have done for us.
Phuket Thailand early January 2005 My wife and I have spent the last two weeks diving aboard "The Junk", visiting dive sites from the Similan Islands to the Surin Islands. The dive sites visited were excellent. We have been diving the Red Sea on several occasions...
