Not everyone wants to sleep on a boat. There are divers and snorkellers, including children, who want to experience the best diving in Thailand for the day and return to the luxury of their hotel or resort in Khao Lak or the surrounding area. Diving and snorkeling day trips to the Similan Islands, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai & Richelieu Rock usually involve some kind of sacrifice – such as speed, comfort or price – but not on Nawanoppa and MV Lapat.

Guests are collected from Khao Lak hotels and resorts in the morning, and transferred to the pier, north of central Khao Lak. At 8am or just after, the Nawanoppa speedboat whisks you out into the sea, where you meet up with MV Lapat at around 9.30am. After a light breakfast and a briefing on the boat, its safety procedures and the dive site, it’s time to jump into the water. You can enjoy the large diving platform and all the space to move around. This is far more comfortable and convenient than trying to dive from a speedboat while wearing dive gear. Snorkellers are taken on the speedboat in special snorkel groups to shallow reefs.

At lunchtime, everyone can enjoy wonderful food aboard the ship, and even snorkel around it. There’s no need to worry about spending your surface interval aboard a speedboat, rocking around in open sea. MV Lapat will be safely moored and has toilets, showers, and space to walk around.

After the second dive, everyone is usually quite tired and wants to get home quickly. Here, Nawanoppa doesn’t disappoint. The large engines and design of the boat ensure that it sails swiftly back to the pier, where the van is waiting to transport you back to you hotel or resort.

Nawanoppa-diving-speed-boatIt really is the best of both worlds for anyone interested in diving & snorkeling day trips at the best dive sites in Thailand. Speed, comfort, something to do at lunchtime, and all at good prices. 

Please note, that on Fridays & Wednesadys Nawanoppa & MV Lapat are at Richelieu Rock. Although this is the best dive site in Thailand, it is not really suitable for novice divers or snorkellers. The location is out in open sea.

I booked this dive trip at very late notice but Jamie and the team did a great job at organising 2 day trips out to both Koh Bon and Koh Tachai. Both trips were very enjoyable and well organised with a professional crew running the dive operations an more
