New in 2017, MV Lapat was specifically designed to offer affordable luxury Similan diving cruises for up to 16 lucky guests. The highly-experienced team commissioned the building of Lapat to specifications ideal for couples, friends, solo divers, and groups. Each cabin is air conditioned, and accommodates two guests in clean comfort. The double bed cabins have private en suite bathrooms. Similan liveaboard diving cruises don’t need to be crowded or overpriced. MV Lapat finds the perfect balance of size, guest capacity, luxury and budget.

MV Lapat was designed by divers, for divers, and built in Phuket during 2016. She is fitted out with facilities and décor to ensure durability, safety, cleanliness, and convenience.

Starting with the communal areas, there is a large sundeck atop, and on the upper deck there is a covered outdoor dining area, and an air-conditioned lounge for enjoying videos and to cool down during the daytime. Everything was designed to be modern, but have character and be practical. The large dive deck is obviously at the rear of the boat, and is where everyone’s equipment is stored throughout each cruise. Divers step off in small groups into the crystal-clear turquoise waters of The Andaman Sea. Most diving guests on Lapat join to enjoy wonderful Similan diving safaris, but some take part in PADI diving courses during their trip. Non-diving guests are also very welcome, and pay a discounted rate. They will be offered opportunities to snorkel above shallow reefs, and every guest is welcome to visit The Similan Islands’ famous pristine beaches, for example at Donald Duck Bay.

Lapat similan liveaboard dive boatOn the main deck of MV Lapat there are 8 air-conditioned cabins, each taking no more than two guests. 6 of the cabins are twin bunk, meaning that solo guests can also enjoy some privacy. Each bunk has its own window. Twin-cabin guests on Lapat share clean bathroom facilities which have hot & cold water throughout the trip. The other two cabins are known as ‘master cabins’ because they have a double bed and a private en suite bathroom. Although not large, each cabin is clean, well designed, and has an airy feel due to the materials and large windows.

MV Lapat trips are 4D4N in length, leaving in the evening, returning mid-afternoon, and offering up to 14 dives at the best diving areas in Thailand. Each trip begins at the central Similan Islands, then moves north to Koh Tachai, Richelieu Rock, and Koh Bon on the return.

MV Lapat Itinerary

Booking / Enquiry

MV Lapat sails from Tab Lamu Pier (Khao Lak) in the evening (around 8pm) and returns at 3pm on the final day. Because of the late departure, there is no diving on departure day, but guests wake up early the next morning moored at the dive site, ready to go diving. Each full diving day has 4 dives (early morning, mid-morning, afternoon & sunset/night), then on the final day of the cruise, there are two morning dives before the boat returns to Tab Lamu Pier.

Normally one and a half days are spent diving at the Similan Islands, before the boat sails north to the best dive sites in Thailand. Koh Bon is famous for Manta Rays, Richelieu Rock is famous for Whale Sharks and its Seahorse, and Koh Tachai is famous for a bit of everything. Each trip is adjusted slightly in order to give the best diving opportunities for those on board. There are 4 dives for the first 3 days, then 2 dives on the final day before MV Lapat sails back to Tab Lamu Pier, Khao Lak.

Click below for detailed itinerary.

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.

MV Lapat Courses

Booking / Enquiry

MV Lapat has a wide range of PADI diving courses available at very competitive prices. Normally, guests need to pre-book a PADI diving course so that equipment, materials and staff in the preferred language can be prepared.

MV Lapat Transfer Details

Booking / Enquiry

MV Lapat guests staying in Khao Lak can enjoy free scheduled transfers in the early evening on departure day. Guests coming from Phuket can also join scheduled transfers at the unbeatable price of 250 THB per guest. At the end of each cruise, the same applies. Because MV Lapat departs from and returns to Tab Lamu Pier in Khao Lak, guests who come from Phuket are picked up earlier due to the longer journey, and those coming from Khao Lak are collected later.

Guests who are unable to meet the scheduled pick ups or would like private transportion are welcome to contact us to arrange a private taxi at the most competitive rates.
