MC Sundancer Overview
Our new Similan catamaran for the 2017-18 scuba diving season is MC Sundancer. This is a purpose-built boat offering diving day trips to Koh Bon, Koh Tachai & the Similan Islands. Its design, facilities, and the team who run it all make for some of the best Similan Islands scuba diving day trips. It also goes to Koh Bon, Koh Tachai & Premchai Wreck.
is a fast and stable speed catamaran designed for comfortable and convenient scuba diving day trips to Similan Islands, Koh Bon & Koh Tachai. There is plenty of room on board for more than 30 guests and staff. Everyone can relax in comfort while speeding across the waves, thanks to its twin-hull design. Unlike a speedboat that bounces on waves and can rock from side to side, this is a catamaran that stays level, even at high speed. During the trip, guests can enjoy tasty breakfast on the way out, a delicious lunch between dives, and an afternoon snack on the way back. Drinking water, soft drinks, & fruit are available throughout the trip free of charge. There is a lounge saloon, places to relax outside and a huge dive deck. Entries into the crystal-clear water from the dive deck are well timed, prepared and organised in groups so that safety, enjoyment and convenience are kept to a maximum.
The boat departs from Khao Lak’s Tab Lamu Pier in the morning. Most days of the week, there are 2 dives each day, but every Tuesday the boat leaves earlier in the morning for a special 3-dive day trip including Koh Bon & Koh Tachai (the best dive sites of the Similan Island national park) plus a local wreck dive. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays on Sundancer are at Similan Islands with pristine beaches, which means that these trips are ideal for snorkellers and divers who want visit a beach between dives.
The boat and its trips are run by an experienced team of Europeans who like to make sure that everything goes to plan, with lots of happy guests. Free local transfers from hotels around Khao Lak are included in the prices, and high-quality diving equipment is available for rent. Dive groups are limited to 4 guests per Divemaster guide, and all the Divemaster guides are experienced, professional and fun. ‘Try Dives’ and courses are available at reasonable rates.
