We have daily boat trips on which we visit two or three different sites. On the longer trip we have lunch on the boat or on a beach. Most days we will go out for a full day trip, eg when we visit Koh Rang National Park or make the 3 stop day including the HTMS Chang Shipwreck, on other times we plan a shorter half day trip.
The divers and freedivers are guided in small groups and the snorkelers have a snorkel guide to show places of interest. On the day trips we pick you up at the hotel in the morning to take you to Bang Bao where we try the equipment before going on board. Full equipment is included for all activities. On board there is coffee and tea, water and soft drinks, biscuits, lunch and fruit.
All activities are run from the same boat, 80% of the dive sites are also very good snorkel sites. In case we do dive one of the deeper sites then we take the divers there with our small speedboat while the BB boat stays with the snorkelers for safety and comfort.
You might want to:
- Rent a digital camera for the day, 700 baht.

Coral watch dives
Next to the regular dives we offer coral watch dives. This is a day of diving, where we visit the reefs using coral charts, taking data to map the reef and check how it is affected over time. It is a fun way to learn about the coral reef, and a great feeling to make your dives count! If you are interested have a look at www.coralwatch.org
Koh Wai pick-up
You want to stay on the tropical paradise island of Koh Wai? We come to pick you up by boat on our way to the dive sites, or can arrange for a course with training from Koh Wai`s lovely beach. Imagine learning how to dive from the balcony of your own bungalow!
