Why Diving from Khao Lak:

only 1h15-30 minutes, departing from Phuket you will have a lot more transfer time by a minivan in the morning.
KhaoLak have a few local dive sites which are 3 wrecks with a lot of marine life.
Khao Lak is a peaceful village on the west coast of Phang-nga Province. Great for nature discovery and relaxing, Khao Lak is very closed to Khao Sok
national park where we provide our Khao Sok land tours and Phang-Nga Bay tours.
Ideal for family and couple who don't want to stay in the big city of Phuket. White sand beach and beautiful sunset are waiting for you in Khao Lak.
Diving from Phuket:
If you are staying in Phuket no problem, we transfer you free of charge to Khao Lak for your Similan islands liveaboard, Phuket offers everything a big
city has to offer, night life, restaurants, and luxury resort on the beach.
We also provide liveaboard to Koh Phi Phi and day trips from Phuket.
Why choose a Liveaboard:
Diving on our Similan Islands Liveaboards is a unique experience, You will depart by night with the liveaboard and then spend a few days on the boat
without the same group of people.
By diving from our liveaboard you will get more dives for your money and save a lot of time compared of doing day trip.
Day trips are great if you love the comfort of your 5 star resort but you will loose 1h30 every morning and afternoon to get to the Similan.
Doing day trips end up more expensive as you pay the gasoline for the way back and forth.
On our liveaboard you will have the best time ever, wake up dive, eat, sleep, dive, eat, sleep... You have to try once to fall in love with Liveaboard diving.
