About iQ-DIVE
Khao Lak is the ideal starting point to explore the beautiful underwater world of the Similan Islands, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai & Richelieu Rock and the local wrecks Boonsung, Premchai and Sea Chart with huge schools of fish. Visibility move throughout the year between 15 and 30 meters (open from mid-October to mid-May). The dive center is owned by Swiss Ernst and his Thai wife Meaw. The aim of the iQ-DIVE team is to provide guests with a maximum of safety, professionalism and fun. The staff speaks German, English, Thai and French. The booking center, diving and snorkeling equipment sales and training rooms are located opposite Mc Donald's and it's easy to recognize on the huge "Nemo" neon sign. The logistics center is located on a private pier in Baan Nam Khem, north of Khao Lak. Our High=speed Catamaran is moored here and here are also our Welcome lounge with toilets and showers, the filling station, tanks and rental equipment.
