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 and also offering Similan/Koh Bon day trips, we offer a unique choice of three different boats and ten different 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 two tin mining wrecks, and 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!

When you love diving and are travelling on a budget, this divecenter has one of the chippest liveboards in the area to discover the similans and Koh Bon (where you can swim with whale sharks). I got certified with them (advanced Padi OWD) and spent three days on the Nangnuan. They are both cool and pro. Good value for the... More

This is the place to go for a Day Dive Trip in Khao Lak. I was impressed. they look after you. they are very professional. and the boat was lovely. I would recommend this Dive center also to do your PADI Open Water. It is very reasonably priced compared to the others in the area, and an extremely professional outfit.... More

And my 9 year old was estatic about his first real snorkeling trip... How disappointed he was! I travelled half the world... More

very well organized, with James as "master of ceremonies" on the boat. Information was clearly presented as we boarded the boat, and at various points throughout the voyage. Dive groups were relatively small, with a dive-master for every 2-4 guests. A snorkel master looked after 6 guests. Dive briefings were good, with a good crew to help divers into the... More

We had a one day trip to the Similan islands and thoroughly enjoyed it. We went snorkelling and had two drops in the lovely clear sea. Although not as much to see as some places in the world, we still enjoyed it and our guide Marina (thanks Marina, from Marina) was very good as were all the others in the... More

Me and my girlfriend went to the Similan Islands with Sea Dragon and found the experience highly enjoyable. Transport to/from was in a clean air conditioned bus. The dive/snorkel instructors are very safe, attentive and funny. Dive equipment was in good working order. The boat trip was comfortable with good food. The diving and snorkeling are absolutely fabulous as you... More

Very well organized course to get you certified for OWD. Passionate instructor with lots of real life, practical experience. Very pleased I received my OWD certification with Sea Dragon Dive Center and certainly plan to come back to be in one of their livaboard dives in the future.

Dive staff well prepared and knowledgeable Boat trip was longer than by speedboat but very pleasant and far more relaxing. Gave time for a good briefing on both snorkelling and... More

We went to the Similan Island with their big boat, and it was so well structured and organized. Started with a briefing and breakfast (plenty of choice). After this, they introduce you to your divemaster, in our case it was Eleonore. What a passionate woman, wauw!! She added so much more to the dive with her knowledge of the underwater... More

I am so sorry to hear that you were unable to join your second Similan day trip with us as your wife became sick in the taxi on the way to the harbour. We did not have any other reports of illness or possible food poisoning from the previous day’s trip and as lunch is served buffet style, it seems... More
