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.

Had a great time on the Lapat! I would definitely recommend. + The staff were amazing. + The launch boat is brand new and is much better than the other liveaboards operating in the area. + There is plenty of space on the boat and it does n ot feel cramped. + You must see Richelieu Rock, it's amazing. -The diving equipment was a bit dated but the staff are always there to help. -The only thing I would suggest would be adding lounge chairs and umbrellas to the 3rd deck. It would be nice to hang out up there but there was no furniture. more

I booked a 2n/3d trip with Jamie on Lapat as solo traveller. His personal service and is a 10/10. and I don't hesitate to recommend using No Troubles Just Bubbles and can't wait to go again. The Lapat was great dive boat sleeps 16 but also has day t rip divers but there is plenty of room. The crew are fantastic, the food excellent and the diving especially at Richelieu Rock was unbelievable., There was a whale shark there on the day I dived and every diver was luckily enough to see this beautiful creature smiles all around the boat was a sight to be seen. Thanks Jamie and the Lapat Crew see you again more

We had a two day trip with the Lapat and we would do it again anytime! The crew was charming and welcoming and very helpful in every regard. The equipment was very good, and when it was not, the dive masters would see to it and change it when needed. And last but not least, the food was just amazing! I had the best pad Thai of my life on board. more
