Day trips and Dive sites
Being located on Koh Lanta means that we are fortunate enough to have easy access to the premium diving and snorkeling sites of Thailand. We operate regular day trips to:
- Hin Muang/Daeng (Red Rock/Purple Rock)
- Koh Ha (The Five Islands)
- Koh Bida Nok/Nai/Hin Bida
- Kled Keaw Wreck/Hin Klai
Once you have confirmed your reservation, relax and let our team at Lanta Diver take care of the rest. We will pick you up in the morning and bring you to the dive centre where you will meet your PADI professional who will take care of you for the rest of the day.
We carefully hand-pick our team of friendly and professional PADI Instructors and Divemasters, who can speak a variety of languages including Swedish, English, German, French and Thai.
Once aboard the boat, the first thing we will do is provide you with a proper breakfast! You will enjoy freshly cooked bacon, egg, cheese, salad, bread, toast and jam.
During the relaxing journey to the dive site your Divemaster or Instructor will individually brief your group about your diving or snorkeling activities and supervise your equipment set up. To ensure your diving experience is personal, we always dive in small groups so there will never be more than four divers to each Divemaster or Instructor. Furthermore, our primary aim is to match divers in groups of equal experience levels which will ensure your whole diving experience with Lanta Diver is first class.
Traditionally we always scheduled our trips around two dives per day, but we recently realized that divers just want to dive……as much as possible! In response to this, we now offer an optional third dive in the day on most trips to Koh Ha and Koh Bida.
For those who find two dives is enough, don’t worry, snorkeling or even a little sleep on the sun deck is available as an alternative to the third dive. In between your dives you will of course eat! You will be served a delicious Thai lunch, with three different options (at least one vegetarian), fresh fruit, and you are welcome to help yourself to unlimited soft drinks, tea/coffee and water throughout the day.
On the way back to Lanta your Divemaster will give a full debriefing of your dives, including fish identification and logbook completion. If we had a photographer on board your trip, then you can view the shots of yourself underwater, on the boat, and have the option to purchase them as a souvenir of your day.
Once back on land you have time to browse our retail store, check out the Lösgodis/Candy, and chat to our shop staff about future diving arrangements. Of course then our driver’s will take you back to your resort.
Fancy a private day out with no other tourists on board? Our luxury speedboat is perfect for exactly this. We can design a day trip for you which specifically meets your personal wishes. Whether you prefer diving, snorkeling or sunset cruises, we will make sure your private charter is a day to remember.
It is so simple – you tell us what you want and we will take care of the rest …
