Certainly a great experience. We did so many dives I had to skip a few. Even though our trip started shortly after the storm blew over the Surins the dives were rewarding in the sense that there was more than plenty to see. The experience...More

Sea Dragon Dive Center - Snorkel on a Dive Boat? (9 Replies)
Have any of you snorkelers done the 3 day dive tour with Sea Dragon out of Khao Lak? It is officially listed as a "diving" tour so wondering how it was for snorkeling? In particular: 1) Are snorkelers able to get GREAT snorkeling off of this boat if they are going to deep areas for the divers? (typically deep water snorkelers don't see much) 2) Does any portion of the trip cater to snorkelers vs. divers? 3) Are snorkelers treated like second class citizens aboard boat? (we've seen this...More

2 more sleeps to go then we're on our way to Khao lak. Never been to Thailand before, we're quite excited. We'll be staying at La Flora Resort. On the 25th April we're going on liveaboard Mariner One with Sea Dragon Dive Center for 3 days/nights on the Similand Islands. Can't wait for that. Any tips on good restaurants in that area near La Flora, or should I say good bars?!

An extract from my "history" of our 8 weeks in Bang Niang, just "around the corner" from La Flora: "You then leave Bang La On for Bang Niang passing many local bars and restaurants as you pass. The Smaw Ruhr on your left about half way is a good example of a typical non-tourist restaurant with very good, but spicy food. Popular with local restaurant owners when they "dine out" - and the local police. On reaching Bang Niang, on your right you have the Police Boat, which thankfully now appears...More
