For some people, diving twice a day in crystal-clear tropical water while staying in a beachfront bungalow just isn't enough. They want to wake up already out at sea, dive three or four times a day, until after dark, then go to bed and dream about doing it all over again the following day. Diving on a liveaboard boat offers them just that opportunity.
Koh Lanta liveaboard diving boats come in various shapes, sizes, and levels of comfort. All of them, however, offer guests comfortable accommodation, three good meals and snacks all day long, and the chance to enjoy lots of diving at the best diving spots in Thailand.
Diving on a liveaboard cruise is not just about living on a boat at sea and doing nothing but scuba diving. Firstly, passengers are away from buildings, vehicles and usually cell phone and wifi signals, 10-25 people spend two or more days and nights together on a boat with air-conditioned cabins, a sun/moon deck, tv lounge and the best sunsets and sunrises. With up to four dives a day, the amount of time spent underwater is unbeatable, but so is the quality of diving. Day trips usually leave Koh Lanta at 8am or 9am with divers getting in the water around mid-morning. Liveaboard divers are usually in the water between 7 and 7.30am for the first dive of the day. Not only does this early dive ensure that there are no other dive groups there at the same time, but also the reef life and colours are quite different compared to the rest of the day. Being on a much more flexible schedule than day trips from Koh Lanta, the liveaboard diving boats can choose and change the dive sites they visit, as well as the times. Therefore, if a dive site is overcrowded or has too strong a current, an alternative can be found. In addition, if there is a particularly good dive experience, for example a Whale Shark (Rhincodon typus) or Manta Ray (Manta alfredi) sighting can mean that the same dive site is visited two or even three times in a row.
Koh Lanta liveaboard boats usually offer a selection of trips, including shorter journeys to Koh Phi Phi or Hin Daeng, as well as slightly longer cruises to Koh Lipe, or around a mixture of diving areas, such as Hin Daeng, Koh Haa, and Phi Phi in one cruise. There is even the option of sailing out to the Similan Islands on a Koh Lanta liveaboard diving cruise. Get away from the crowds and visit Thailand's best diving spots up to four times per day on a Koh Lanta liveaboard cruise. Prices are much more affordable than many people expect.
