Sundancer is a fast & comfortable diving catamaran designed for safe diving day trips to the Similan Islands, Koh Bon & Koh Tachai. There is plenty of room on board for all guests & staff. Everyone can relax in comfort while speeding across the waves, thanks to its twin-hull design. Unlike a speedboat that bounces on waves and can rock from side to side, this is a catamaran that stays level, even at high speed. And during lunchtime the boat's design prevents it from rocking like a small speedboat.
During the trip, you can enjoy tasty breakfast prepared in the morning on the way out, a delicious lunch between dives, and afternoon snacks on the way back. Soft drinks, & fruit are available for free. The boat has a lounge saloon, plenty of places to relax outside and a well-designed diving platform.
The boat departs from Khao Lak’s Tab Lamu Pier. On most days, you get 2 dives each day, but every Tuesday the boat leaves earlier in the morning for a special trip including dives at Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Premchai Wreck. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays on Sundancer are at Similan Islands with pristine beaches, which means that these trips are ideal for snorkellers and divers who want visit a beach between dives.
Sundancer is run by an experienced team of western Europeans who like to ensure that everything goes to plan. Free local transfers from hotels around Khao Lak are included in the prices, and high-quality diving equipment is available for rent. Small dive groups per experienced Divemaster guide add to your great experience.
MC Sundancer guests need to stay in Khao Lak the night before departure. Ideally, guests 'check in' at one of the boat's several Khao Lak offices, but if this is not possible, check in can be done on the phone.
Wednesdays-Mondays*, Sundancer guests are collected from Khao Lak hotels 7.00-8.15am and taken to Tab Lamu Pier.
Breakfast is served on board, as Sundancer cruises to the dive sites.
2 dives, with lunch served during the surface interval. Beach visits are possible on Most days, but not Tuesdays or Saturdays.
Sundancer returns to Tab Lamu Pier and guests are transferred back to hotels around Khao Lak approximately 5pm.
*On Tuesdays the schedule begins an hour earlier, and there are 3 dives.
The itineraries below are the most-common for each trip, but these can sometimes be changed for a number of reasons. Small changes are made due to weather & sea conditions, special marine life sightings, overcrowded dive sites, local-authorities' instructions, and the needs & requests of the paying guests. The safety & comfort of all guests is most important at all times.
Dive courses are available on MC Sundancer. Pre-booking is required.
Some courses require pool training the day before departure. Some courses are not available every day.
