PADI 5 Star IDC Center and Khao Lak’s first and original Dive Center since...

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 we offer a choice of two different boats and six different liveaboard 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 three local wrecks, and can arrange Similan day trips with a selection of other dive operators in town. 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!

Communicating with Gaby the assistant manager of the shop was a breeze. She is quick to reply and is flexible enough to accommodate my personal circumstances. I could not check in the day before the local wreck trip and she allowed me to check in on the day itself and make the payments there and then. It's also partly because... More

This is a good quality, well organised, dive school, with competitive rates. I did just one day trip - 2 dives to the Bangsak Wreck for a look around. Good instructor, pleasant things to see (the shoals were really pretty to swim through!) The dive trips are not fully-looked-after like some. The boat is a local longtail, and you will... More

I joined the 3d/3n diving tour and it was perfect. Lots of help from the first email, easy to contact them and quick useful replies. Dive center and equipment is well maintained and organised. And the boat is huge, we were at max capacity 20 people and still comfortable, i didnt feel it was overcrowded. There were several guides, maximum... More

We did the 3D3N liveaboard trip to Similar Islands and Koh Bon, which are very exciting dive spots. The crew was very professional, gave us a detailed briefing before every dive and answered every question we had since we were not that experienced in diving - so we could also improve our dive skills a lot. The food etc onboard... More

My friend and I completed our PADI Open Water course with Sea Dragon. Jason our instructor explained everything clearly, was patient and made the whole experience fun. Everyone at the shop made us feel welcome and they picked us up for early morning starts. Highly professional and will definitely use them again when in Khao Lak. Thanks for giving us... More

Didn't manage to get in a dive but the guys were very helpful in trying to find something despite it being the off season and bad weather! Thanks to Stephan for his efforts.

I did the 4d/4n liveaboard with Sea Dragon and had a blast. The crew are professional and fun, the food was delicious, and of course great diving! Loved spending time on the islands during surface intervals. The dorm setup is nice too. Can't recommend them enough!

We did the 4d/4n liveaboard across the national parks. This included the best dive sites I've ever done, seeing Ray's, sharks, sea snakes, a turtle and an abundance of fish let alone the most picturesque reefs and corals! The boat itself was very comfortable and the staff on board were a real bonus. Special mention to the chef. Yum!!!!! James... More

I booked for a dive refresher day and then a 3 night liveaboard dive trip to the Andaman Islands. The staff were amazing, the boat was comfortable and really spacious and the diving was spectacular. Food on the boat was great and so much of it! I would really recommend Sea Dragon to anyone wanting to dive in this beautiful... More

I thought I'd have a go at snorkelling and booked a day trip to the Similan Islands with Sea Dragon. Gaby, the shop manager, was so kind, told me all about what I should expect from snorkelling, and made the arrangements for me. I was picked up outside my hotel in a well-maintained taxi, filled with other divers and snorkellers,... More
