Diving Koh Lanta with daily Trips and Dive Courses
IDC Thailand in conjunction with Blue Planet Divers welcomes you to Diving on Koh Lanta on the tropical island of Koh Lanta in Thailand where there are some excellent dive sites in crystal clear tropical waters. The dive sites that we visit from Koh Lanta have a wide variety of marine life as well as some of the most beautiful soft corals you can find in the Andaman Sea.
Dive trips are scheduled each day to the various locations, including Bida Islands, Koh Haa, Phi Phi Ley, the King Cruiser Wreck and the fabulous Hin Daeng and Hin Muang pinnacles where you may be able to spot Leopard Sharks, Manta Rays and occasionally also the odd Whale Shark!!
Blue Planet, located in Ban Saladan, the North of the island, has been awarded the PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Center rating, which recognizes achieving professional excellence. Blue Planet prides themselves on being a small company, hence they’re able to offer you a relaxed day's diving in an intimate environment. They will try their hardest to make sure that your days diving with them will remain a memorable occasion.
English, French, German, Swedish, Danish, Spanish, Dutch and Thai languages are on the menu and the staff is able to welcome and greet you in all of these tongues. Being pleasant, helpful and professional is almost a prerequisite for the staff of both dive centers and they will make sure that you are fully satisfied. They will take care of everything and the only thing left to do for you is to relax and enjoy your day diving!
The new catamaran boat allows for faster travel speed and this fast boat departs from Saladan at 7:00am to reach any of our special 3 dives farther sites. It takes only 1.30 min to get to Hin Deang / Hin Muang instead of 4 hours by slow boat. The catamaran is usually back from the daily 3 dive trip at 2.30pm.
The daily trip features Hin Daeng, Hin Muang and Koh Haa all in one day.
Blue Planet also owns the dive boat “Choksomboon 9”. The boat sails every day at 8:00am from Saladan on route to one of the fantastic dive sites the Andaman Sea has to offer. Travel time to the various dive sites ranges between 1-2 hours.
You will start your day with a hotel pick up, which will bring you to the shop where you meet the staff and get to know all other customers participating in that days trip. Blue Planet has a limit of 20 customers per day on board the ‘Choksoombong 9’, making sure your day trip remains comfortable and enjoyable. Diving is done with a comfortable ratio of 4 divers to 1 Divemaster, and all groups are structured in such a way that divers with equivalent certification and/or experience dive together.
An onboard breakfast is served after the morning brief and during the surface interval lunch is served. In-between dives you can take a swim or snorkel possibly have some eye shut time – just relax before getting ready for your second dive of the day!
All prices for the daily trips include full equipment rental (if you bring your own equipment you will receive a discount), hotel transfers, insurance, and food and beverages on board.
Combined dive and accommodation packages are available, please check with Camille for more details.
