Many divers and snorkellers, including children, want to experience the best diving in Thailand for the day and return to the luxury of a resort or hotel in Khao Lak. Diving day trips to The Similan Islands, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai & Richelieu Rock usually involve some kind of sacrifice – such as comfort, speed or price – but not on Nawanoppa & MV Camic.

Guests are transferred local hotels & resorts in the morning, and taken to Tab Lamu Pier. At 8am or just after, Nawanoppa transports them quickly and comfortably out to meet up with MV Camic (large liveaboard diving ship), arriving around 9.20am. After a nice breakfast and boat briefing, divers jump into the water. They can enjoy a large diving platform and plenty of space to move around. This is a lot more comfortable & convenient than diving off the side of a speedboat wearing dive gear.

At lunchtime, everyone enjoys wonderful food on the ship, and can even snorkel around it. There’s no need to stress about spending the surface interval on a rocky speedboat in open sea. MV Camic will be safely moored, and there are toilets, showers, and room to walk around.

Nawanoppa-diving-speed-boatAfter the second dive, divers are usually quite tired and want to get home quickly. Here, Nawanoppa’s speed is ideal. The three powerful engines ensure that guests are taken swiftly back to Tab Lamu Pier, where a minivan is waiting to transport them back to hotels & resorts.
Nawanoppa really is the best of both worlds for divers interested in day trips at the best dive sites in Thailand. Speed, comfort, something to do at lunchtime, and all at great prices. Guests who have never dived before can try their first breaths underwater by taking part in a DSD (Discover Scuba Diving) day trip at the lowest prices in the area, without sacrificing quality or service. Please contact us for details.
On Sundays Nawanoppa & MV Camic dive at Richelieu Rock. Although this is the best diving site in Thailand, it is not suitable for DSDs, non-divers or, children. Richelieu Rock is out in open sea.
