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.

Where Can I Snorkel In Phuket?

The best places to snorkel in Phuket are all found around the west coast beaches. At most you won't see much more than sand and the occasional crab so head a little south. The southern end of Phuket is much less populated than Patong and you can still find some coral reefs just offshore. The best option is to join us on our dive boat to Phi Phi or Racha Noi for a great snorkelling tour with exceptionally professional snorkel guides.. If that' [...]
