How your day out unfolds:
We offer 2-tank dive boat day trips from the nearby pier at Ban Namkhem. Lunch and soft drinks are served during the day. For all these destinations the craft used is a brand new 15m speedboat, the 'Blue Dolphin', featuring silent-running 225 HP triple engines, with a capacity of only 15 divers, and a divemaster being provided for every 5 divers.
Please wait for your pick up in your Khao Lak hotel reception area at 08:00 hrs; the boat returns around 16:00 hrs, but times vary depending on the destinations visited. Boat journey times vary but the longest is 80 minutes in normal sea conditions.
We offer scuba tours on the best daytrip dive boat available in Khao Lak, in terms of personal service. The Blue Dolphin has a toilet, an outdoor shower and a tank rack that can hold up to 41 tanks. There is emergency oxygen, liability insurance and evacuation procedures, GPS, ship-to-shore radio and mobile telephone contact.
Our Khao Lak-based options run from November through to April. You can go diving in the Similan and Surin Islands, Richelieu Rock, Koh Bon and Koh Tachai islands. For more information on these locations, visit: Khao Lak dive sites.
