It was an amazing diving experience in the Similans with Sea Bees. It was two hour trip to get there, despite they have a big catamaran I got seasick, but as soon as I was in the water diving, all was ok and I enjoyed it a lot. My boyfriend was able to taste the breakfast and meal they offer onboard, which looked pretty good by the way. I tried some of the snacks when arriving back in Khao lak and the seasick pill had done its effect on the way back :)
My dive master, Valentina, was really nice and kind and make this second diving experience for me unforgettable, she explained perfectly all the theory related to the equipment, when diving she held my hand almost all the time... she was amazing!
So beginners, having a monitor for yourself it is really a luxury, being down there knowing you are in good hands is priceless. My boyfriend has the diving license, so he came with us too, making the whole experience just perfect!
The only bad thing is that it was really expensive diving, not only in Sea Bees, prices were quite similar in all Khao Lak diving centers, it is a pitty because we were not able to dive as many times as we had wished to. Same for snorkelling, you can't do it by the beach as there is no visibility, you have to go on a trip, that it is also quite pricey. Take this into account if you are choosing Khao Lak as a destination to do several diving/snorkelling trips as we did.
In any case, from all the centers in Khao Lak, Sea Bees is definitely were we would come back to repeat the experience.
Thanks a lot!

Hallo ISABEL R,
Report response as inappropriate
Thank you very much for your kind review. First of all we are very sorry to hear you were seasick, some of us are just unlucky regarding this issue :-) We are glad you felt comfortable with your divemaster as well as safe under water the whole time. That is the most important thing for us.
In respect to the prices in Khao Lak we would like to explain that because of the long distances to the dive sites the prices there are a bit higher than for example in Phuket or elsewhere. As you already mentioned our prices are quite competitive to other dive operators, and we are sorry you were not able to go diving as often as you would have liked to.
We would gladly welcome you back to an Open Water Course when you already enjoyed the Introductory Dive that much, and let me mention that then rental equipment in all our locations would be for free afterwards :-)
We hope to see you back soon,
Team Sea Bees
