Nemo 2 Overview
Nemo 2 shuttles divers to its sister boat MV Nemo 1. This way, you get the best of both worlds. You can reach the dive sites quickly but still dive from, relax & enjoy lunch on a brand-new large dive boat that is far more comfortable. It’s perfect! The owners of Nemo 1 & 2 are extremely experienced in diving from Koh Lak to Thailand’s best dive sites. 100% Swiss owned, the day trips run like clockwork – the world’s best clockwork. Please note that you need to stay in Khao Lak, not Phuket, the night before your Nemo 2 day trip.
Enjoying the best of both world's is the ideal way to go daytrip diving at The Similan Islands. Guests can stay in a Khao Lak hotel, then around two hours later be on a large & luxurious scuba diving liveaboard that is floating in crystal-clear tropical water. The speedboat journey is around an hour, depending on the exact destination and the sea conditions. Once you arrive on Nemo 1 (brand new in 2017), you can grab a bite to eat before the briefing and first dive. After the dive, a proper sit-down lunch is served, and then relax on this large, purpose-built diving liveaboard. The necessary-length surface interval can include some snorkelling, sunbathing or socialising with other guests. Then after dive #2 it's time to jump back on the speedboat and return to Khao Lak. Most other Similan diving day trips involve everyone staying on the speedboat or catamaran for the whole day, which isn't as comfortable, especially when it's time to eat or there are some waves.
Diving takes place at the best dive sites of the central and northern Similan Islands from Wednesday to Sunday, and Koh Bon on Mondays & Koh Tachai on Tuesdays. Only the very best and special dive sites are repeated, ensuring that everyone gets to see something new and different. Snorkelling guests are welcome at discounted prices, and a good day’s safe fun is almost guaranteed. The whole day is extremely well-organised but in a way that allows everyone to safely enjoy the diving, dining, travelling and picturesque views.
Being Swiss owned & run, the Nemo team like to make sure that everything goes according to plan and on time, from the first day of the season to the last. Because of this, it's important for all guests to stay in Khao Lak the night before your Nemo 2 day trip, and to 'check in' at the dive centre before 7pm the day before. This enables the team to sort everything out, such as equipment sizes, checking certification cards, and signing a little paperwork.
Nemo 2 guests need to stay in Khao Lak (not Phuket) the night before.
