Thailand


On our 4 night / 4 day Thai trip, we enjoy 14 dives in Similans, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai & the world famous Richelieu Rock, renowned for whale shark visits.

Manta rays are more commonly seen there and at Koh Bon. Shark & ray sightings are possible at Tachai too. Green & hawksbill turtles are seen in Similans’ coral reef sites.

Sadly whale sharks, manta rays & turtles & are all under considerable threat. As divers we can help protect endangered species by developing knowledge & skills to support conservation efforts.

Our liveaboard packages include 3 eco-courses from a choice of 7. A popular combination is:
- Turtle Awareness
- Shark Conservation Diver
- Whale Shark Awareness
Liveaboards depart from Khao Lak, 1 hr. north of Phuket airport. Transfers between Phuket & Khao Lak on the start & end dates are included.

Burma


On our 5 night/5 day Burmese trips we enjoy 17 dives throughout the Mergui Archipelago including Black Rock & Shark Cave.

Off the beaten track, these dive sites are scarcely visited & waiting to be explored after being closed for 50 years. Manta rays & whale sharks may be spotted here.

Another appeal of diving the Mergui Archipelago is that you can observe exciting species such as oceanic whitetip sharks and grey reef sharks. These are animals which are rarely seen in the Similans.

Our liveaboard packages include 3 eco-courses from a choice of 6. A good combination is:
- Underwater Naturalist
- Shark Conservation Diver
- Project AWARE
The liveaboard departs from Kuraburi (Thailand) and returns to Ranong (Thailand).
