PADI 5 Star IDC Center and Khao Lak’s first and original Dive Center since...

PADI 5 Star IDC Center and Khao Lak’s first and original Dive Center since 1993 – our success is due to our loyal return customer base. Specializing in liveaboard dive trips we offer a choice of two different boats and six different liveaboard trips ranging from 1 – 7 days to the islands of the Andaman Sea. Whilst each of our boats and trips is individually tailored to reflect your various tastes and budgets, they all share common ground with an emphasis on high safety standards, personalised friendly service, excellent food and, of course, lots of fun. Additionally, we offer local diving to our house reef and our three local wrecks, and can arrange Similan day trips with a selection of other dive operators in town. For those of you who wish to begin or advance your diving, our friendly staff can conduct the full range of PADI dive courses in many languages, from beginner through to Instructor. Hope to see you soon!

Had some misunderstanding with our booking for 2 day trips diving. I called the place to ask for instructions to be ready to dive and the employee gave me some incorrect info over the phone.

Dear Flavia, We are very sorry for the misunderstanding regarding your booking with us for day trips with another dive operator. We always need divers to come into the office the day before trip departure, to try on equipment, fill in forms and pay. When you emailed us saying you had already arrived in Khao Lak, we replied with instructions... More

We booked a 4 day live aboard MV Andaman. They arranged everything perfectly including a pickup at the Phuket airport. We didn't arrive at the shop until 6 pm but no problem they kitted us out ready for the next day trip. Then they took us to our hotel and picked us up the next day. The boat is not... More

I had the pleasure to go diving with the Sea Dragon crew. They were all exceptionally nice and helpful. In the end I was just sad that I had to leave so soon. But I hope I can return. The ratio of personal to students was ver good. And they take care of their customers, their health and the equipment.... More

I did both my OWD and AOD here in February and had a fantastic time. The instructors are very competent and great teachers. The whole team at the dive center is warm and welcoming and any equipment you receive is well maintained. Take the opportunity to combine your course with a trip to the Similan Islands. They are beautiful. Highly... More

I've just returned from the 2 night 3 day similar day liveaboard and all I can say is wow! I knew it would be an amazing experience but it far superseded all expectations and I don't just mean the diving. The diving was, as you might expect, incredible. We saw octopus, moray eels, sea snakes, porcupine fish, puffer fish, nudibranches,... More

Done the budget 3 days 2 nights tour with sea dragon and I can't recommend it enough. Price was incredible for what you get. 8 divers sleep together in a small boat upstairs, not for those who need privacy but ideal for those who want a great price and good company. Dive guides Deer and Stephen were great, dive crew... More

We found this outfit to be quite pro yet informal which is a good combo for a serious recreation activity concerned with vacationing scuba folks. We took out a private boat and guide to a little reef near the harbor, and found the water and coral to be mediocre but didn't see anyone else there!
