Khao Lak is the closest holiday destination to the world-famous Similan Islands National Park. These nine unique islands offer all level tropical diving from shallow reefs to deep submerged pinnacles. The two islands North of Similan are famous for bigger pelagics and Manta Rays and Whale Sharks are spotted on these islands.
Trips start in the morning and we pick you up from your hotel. Our dive boat departs from Thaplamu Pier and it usually takes around 2 hours to reach the first dive site. During the boat trip you can enjoy coffee and light breakfast, set up your dive gear and enjoy the tropical scenery. Our professional guides will give you a site and safety briefing and look after you in the water. Lunch is served between the dives and debrief of the day’s sightings are discussed on the way back with some cold drinks.
Our maximum group size is 6 divers and we always try to avoid crowded dive sites in our daily scheduling. Our guides are certified PADI Divemasters or Instructors and look after the safety of the group as well as point out interesting aquatic life.
'Novice' level means dive site suitable for all levels. Beginners dive shallower than 20 meters but more experience divers may go deeper (max. 30 meters on daytrips).
'Intermediate' level often means deeper dive sites (20-30 meters) and sometimes stronger currents may be present. We required Advanced level certification or enrolling an Deep or Drift diving training during the day. This extra training program (PADI Adventure Dive) can be purchased during the trip for 1000 THB per Adventure Dive (appr. 25€).
