I was invited to join a two dive trip to Racha Yai (including the wrecks in Bay 1). This was my first trip with Andaman Ocean Safaris though they have an outstanding reputation in the industry notably for high levels of safety and service. Breakfast was served as we left Chalong Pier on the 90min trip. There was a wide... More

This team asked the right questions, and delivered on all my expectations. I have dived a lot around the Pacific and Asia and this service level and dive site were exceptional. Once I had dived enough they even arranged for a hire of a private boat for a day of cruising, nothing was a problem. I'll be back to see... More
