Walked into the shop and have been superbly taken care off for a double dive. The whole family enjoyed a relaxed dive and so we decided to contact Mel for a Live-a-board experience after the weekend. She customised it to our requirements and was always very quick her replies to our questions, request and changes. Very personalised service! Before the trip we have been informed on a slight change to make it more convenient for us and the adventure could begin. Great on-boarding on the MV Amapon and the boat crew and the dive team have been fantastic. This is a small boat and really looking after their guests in all aspects. Mel even organised a surprise birthday cake for our son. I did not expect that on a dive boat! The best thing compared to other dive trips I have done in South East Asia, not pushy when getting in the water and out of it. All relaxed, just what you want as a dive experience. Our family is on all different experience levels for diving and we have been taken care of from Oli as our Dive Master in and out of the water and as well with Dirk and Lars on the boat. There was (including us) 9 divers on the boat! From Koh Bon to Surin island and Richelieu rock. The dive sites got more and more amazing. Diving with the Manta Rays on two of the 7 dives, was for sure a great highlight for our kids. We are all hooked now and hope we will be able to manage a longer live-on-board experience in the future!!!!

We chose Sea Turtles based on their Trip Advisor ratings. We were quite pleased with the organization, and how readily they answered questions. We opted for 3 day of trips, which included pick up at the hotel, lunch on board and all the equipment. A word of warning, they use weight belts, rather than BCD's with integrated pockets. I wish I had brought all my own gear, I did have my own mask and dive computer. It wasn't until my third dive that I finally got the hang of the weightbelt and the different BCD. The guides were wonderful, never had more than 4 divers per guide. The boat is incredibly stable, being a catamaran, and fast, powered by 4 250hp outboard motor. Food was plentiful, but typical Thai cuisine, day one it was way too spicy for my taste, I settled for white rice and vegetables, and lots of cookies. Each diver was given a metal water bottle to use each day. I was really impressed with IQdives who apparently owns the boat. It was shared by several different dive shops. And Ralph managed to coordinate the pick up of 27 divers from 20 different hotels the Sunday that we dove. Our gear was on the boat waiting for us each morning, and the staff was readily available to assist as needed. They helped us find a lot of different typs of fish.

I just like everything with Sea Turtle Divers - the take care of everyone individually and their goal is that you are having a great time. I always feel save and the most important thing for me - the groups are small, the dive instructors, dive master and guides are very experienced, professional and fun. We were only 7 guests with two Guides - perfect! The boat has a maximum of 14 guests - and than there would be more guides. Usually you habe groups of maximum 4. The boat is not brandnew but you have everything you need and depending on what you would like to spend you have a single cabin with private bath or shared. The food is great and the crew takes good care of you and supports you with your diving equipment. They have Nitrox and you can do also licensed (I did Nitrox and my advanced OWD). The dive sites are great. Unfortunately the visibility was not at its best but there was so much sealive and we have seen great things. Thanks for the great trip - I‘ll come back for sure!!!

From the first contact by email to the last dive of the trip, everything was well organised and planned. We got picked up at the airport and got our rental equipment as soon as we were at the office. The tour started the next day. We did two trips, one to the Similans and one to the north (Koh Bon, Koh Tachai, Surin, Richelieu Rock). Both had its beauty and we can recommend to book both of it as you get the most out of it. Underwater life is so different why it's really worth to do both tours. The staff on the boat was lovely and helpful, food was great and we eat way too much. :-) We will definitely book again with Sea Turtle divers. Thanks to Mel and the whole team.

Just back from a 3 night liveaboard on Sea Turtle’s dive boat. It’s been an epic trip to North Similan and Surin - topped off with a Manta ray sighting on our last dive! Mel, Dirk, Oli and the team were great hosts and planned the trip to perfection so we were never at a dive site with too many other boats. Thoroughly recommended!
