We booked a brilliant two day trip to the beautiful Khao Sok lake in March. We decided to use Thailand Dive and Sail as the reviews we had seen were very positive and we certainly weren't disappointed. From the first email contact, Sam answered all our queries extremely quickly offering lots of advice, she also helped us to book accommodation... More

My friend and I, from Portland (OR, USA), booked a 6 day trip with M/V Oktavia to dive the beautiful Similan islands. Clive and Chris were super fun to dive with. The crew and staff were genuinely kind and caring, and helped make our diving experience exceptional. Clean rooms, great homemade food with delicious deserts & fruits (yumm), and lots... More

planning a liveaboard for similan islands can be a daunting task - so many operators and boats to choose from. we were lucky to find TD&S. Clive and Ric have been diving the similans for a really long time and know an awful lot about each dive site - a huge differentiating factor between an average dive and an awesome... More

Once again Ric, Sam and Clive came up trumps and organised a great liveaboard on the M/V Hallelujah with Clive as our dive guide. Clive got us through our Nitrox certification too ;-) Everything went really smoothly and Clive was the best guide ever. Now our 'official' Thailand Similan dive guide forever! The boat was great and the dive crew... More

When my bf and I decided that we should do a liveaboard at famous Similan Islands, we combed through the web, and Thai dive & sail's website popped and stood out as most "legit" and informative one amongst all we found. We sent an email to enquire, and their response was super prompt. My queries and response were answered within... More
