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.

Anemone Reef

It's immediately obvious how Anemone Reef got its name. This great Phuket diving site is carpeted with heteractis magnifica anemones. They do have a mild sting so make sure your buoyancy is correct before you leave the decent line. The dive will usually start at the mooring line. After leaving the mooring line you'll quickly descend to 18 - 24m depending on your certification level. Under the deeper ledges at the bottom of the reef you ma [...]

banana bay at racha noi island phuket

Racha Noi Banana Bay South

For many students Racha Noi Banana bay will be part of your first Phuket diving experience. The clear shallow bay is often devoid of current. Making it an ideal dive site for first timers and more experienced divers who haven't got wet for a while. That's not to say it's a bad dive site, just a very safe one. The dive will begin near the very beautiful coral gardens at around 4-5 meters. Many species of jewel like damselfish, butterfly fis [...]

Thailand Test And Go Returns!

Despite initial reservations, the Thailand Test and Go scheme was a massive boost for the Phuket diving industry. Even though the tourist arrivals were way below normal. A lack of diving options in south-east asia especially drew a large number of divers to Phuket. Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines all still have heavy restrictions on international tourism. In comparison getting to Thailand and especially Phuket is relatively easy e [...]

Diving From Liveaboards Banned In The Similan Islands

If you're not a fan of diving from dinghies then we have some bad news for you. Diving directly from your liveaboards has now been banned. It's a move that is supposed to protect corals and marine life, personally I've never seen a liveaboard in the Similan Islands National Park go near a reef. Liveaboards will have to keep their distance from the dive site or use official mooring lines. The other reason touted is safety. A diver unfortuna [...]

Kata Beach Diving

We've taken the time for some Kata beach diving this high season. Rumours of rare and quite astonishing finds have been doing the rounds. We though we'd check it out and see if it was a possible location to offer our guests, especially those staying in a Kata Hotel. The rumour of mimic octopus at Kata Beach has being doing the rounds for years but without much evidence. This season quite a few photos have been turning up of mimic sight [...]
