Daily Dive Trips to the Similan Islands, Koh Bon, Richelieu Rock
Our day trips depart for the Similan Islands almost every day. When going elsewhere we turn north for other highlights such as world famous Koh Bon and Richelieu Rock. We reach the Similans and Koh Bon in just over one hour, and Richelieu in two. Read more
As well as being an excellent departure point for one of the best diving destinations in the world, the Similan Islands and Surin Islands, Khao Lak has some very good local dive sites in its own right, all easily accessible for a diving day trip. Read more about diving in Thailand.
Local Diving near Khao Lak
Our longtail boat departs from Pakarang Beach (for Bonsung Wreck) or Tap Lamu (for Sea Chart 1). Both about 15 minute ride from our shop. The boat trip takes 30 minutes. We do two dives at the wreck with lunch in between dives. You will be back in Khao Lak at about 3 pm. Lunch and water is included in the price.
Two Dives Per Day Trip
We have chosen to limit ourselves to two dives per day. Our experience tells us that doing three dives will not give you more total time under water. When diving with us you will find that we make an effort to give you as long time under water as possible as well as good quality diving.
We also have a liveaboard that does longer cruises around the Similan Islands, Surin Islands and in Burmese waters. Most of our safaris are 3 days/ 3 nights but we also go on longer trips like our 6-7 days Burma trip.
Liveaboard diving is by far the most cost efficient way to dive in this area since the islands are remote. You will experience the serenity of the Andaman Sea first hand by living on the boat. We do 4 dives per day, 2 dives on the last day on these trips and visit all the top dive sites in the area. Read more about our liveaboard
Groups and group sizes
For you to get as much as possible out of your dive trip, we never take more than four divers in a group. Each group is put together depending on experience, skills and air-consumption of each diver. Each group has their own, highly skilled dive master,our staff know the dive sites and local marine life very well.
On board our boats safety comes first. Not only do we have first aid-equipment, oxygen, VHF-radio, fire extinguisher, life jackets (also for children) and navigation equipment, our staff is trained to use the equipment. We are probably the only dive center that perform exercises to make sure our staff maintain their skills.
