MV Lapat is a Similan liveaboard diving boat launched in 2016. Designed by divers, for divers, the boat is specifically built for diving cruises in Thailand’s Andaman Sea, including Richelieu Rock. Lapat offers flexible liveaboard trips. This means that you can join on any day of the season, and stay as long as you choose. Of course, this depends on cabin availability. The advantage of flexible trips is that the Similan diving cruise can more-easily fit with your holiday schedule. From the communal areas to the cabins and dive deck, this boat is ideal for couples, solo divers, friends, families, and groups of diving club members.

Starting with the accommodation, Lapat has 8 cabins on its main deck, each accommodating 2 guests. All the cabins are air-conditioned and designed to be comfortable and practical. The air-conditioners are independently controlled in each cabin, so you can get your chosen temperature. There are six twin cabins which have bunk beds, and two double-bed cabins. The double cabins have private bathrooms. Each cabin has its own window, with privacy glass. Also on the boat’s main deck are the shared bathrooms and the well-designed diving deck. This is where everyone’s diving equipment is stored and where divers take a giant stride entry into the crystal-clear water of the Andaman Sea. Divers who are unable to return directly to the rear of the boat at the end of their dive can be picked up by Lapat’s dinghy.

Lapat similan liveaboard dive boatThe upper deck of MV Lapat has a small indoor and covered outdoor area. The design is modern, but designed to be easily cleaned & durable. Guests can relax in the saloon to escape the heat of the daytime or watch a video in the evening. At the rear of the upper deck is the communal area that is covered from sunshine and rain. Here you spend most of the time socialising in small groups or enjoying the sumptuous food that is served buffet-style throughout each day. Diving is hungry work, and the kitchen staff on MV Lapat pride themselves on preparing the tastiest dishes of local and western food, always with a vegetarian option.

Sundeck onboard lapat liveaboard dive boatThe top deck of Lapat is for sun worshippers and star gazers. Here the exposed sundeck is where the best views of the surrounding sea are enjoyed. Sometimes guests even choose to sleep under the stars.

On your first day you arrive by speedboat and do three dives. Then on your final day you dive three times and return to land by speedboat in the afternoon. If you're staying for more than one night, you get four dives in the middle day(s) day. 

Each diver on MV Lapat is placed into a group of no more than 5 with a Divemaster guide. The groups are chosen by the experience and certification level of each diver, but special requests are always taken into account. There is a selection of courses available on Lapat as well as equipment for hire.
