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.
