MV Lapat

MV Lapat

2 days/1 night From THB 12,900

MV Lapat Offers Daily Departures To The Best Dive Sites In The Similan Islands National Park

MV Lapat offers a super flexible option for diving the stunning Similan and Surin island National Parks. Guests are transferred daily via a speedboat service from Thaplamu Pier in Khao Lak. You can stay as many nights as you like but if you have time and budget restraints then you can stay for just one night. There are other similar options but a great price and only 16 overnight guests make for a great choice.

It’s not a large boat but certainly big enough for its low capacity. The cabins although small look fresh and bright are more than adequate to get a good nights sleep. Six standard bunk cabins have air conditioning but no en-suite but there are four toilets/showers for guests to share. The larger double bed master cabin does have en-suite making it a great option for couples.

You’ll spend most of your time in the common areas of the boat. A comfortable air conditioned saloon and outside eating area are on the 2nd deck and a very large partially shaded sundeck is on the very top. The dive deck easily accommodates 16 guests, however it may feel a little cramped with a few extra day trippers.

All in all, MV Lapat represents great value for money and an easy to follow dive schedule for you to choose a trip tailored for your needs.

male ornate ghost pipefish Rare & Peculiar Critters

Ornate Ghost Pipefish

Ornate Ghost pipefish seemingly appear from nowhere. After months of no sightings they suddenly show up, some years it's just a few and some years it seems every crinoid has a pair. They spend the first part of their life as plankton, drifting along in ocean currents until the time is right to settle on one of our many reefs. How long they travel the ocean currents is not known but unlikely to be long. They disappear just as quickly as the ap [...]

How Does Maya Bay Closure Affect Divers?

Maya Bay is probably the most famous beach in Thailand, unfortunately it's become a victim of its own success. It's been 18 years since the release of the movie that brought Maya bay its fame but the popularity hasn't diminished. Thousands of tourists alight everyday to visit the stunning location portrayed in 'The Beach' but most leave a little disappointed.
