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.

We just came back from amazing day trip.
All of the transfers to the port and to the boat in Richelieu was perfect and in time. The boat was very nice and comfortable and staff was very kind and helpful.
The diving was so beautiful and colourful and we saw two whale shark in the first dive.
We are really recommended on this diving Center and this day trip for everyone.

I showed up late in the evening wanting to arrange a dive trip thinking it would probably be a few days before I could go as there wasn't many tourists around at the time. Half an hour later Melanie had arranged it so that I was able to join a day trip the day after and a 4 day liveaboard the day after that! She supplied me with all the equipment, dropped me off, picked me up after and held my luggage while I was away on the trip. Very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Both trips were great; 5 out of 5 would recommend!

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!

Just finished my Open Water Diving certificate with Sea Turtle DC. It was the best decision I've done to go with them. They are very responsive for my short term decision to do the OWD. Very well organized, extremely friendly. Not forget to mention, if you are there ask for Michele as your instructor. Could not have found a better teacher. He is very calm, very clear in his instructions, great humor and always have the right pace of teaching. He was the best and he made my first diving experience an absolute blast. Thanks to the whole team of Sea Turtle DC. I will not forget these 3 days.

Our plan was to do some snorkelling at the Similan Islands, we approached several dive centres and found some did not offer snorkelling. As we were staying at The Sands, Sea Turtle Divers was just around the corner. We were greeted by a tall young german man ( forgot his name) and he went on to explain what they offered, all costs and provided us with a brochure. The service provided was great. As we did not enough money at the time, he was happy to wait for us until 8.30pm as we went into town to the ATM. The service was good enough that our friend decided to book elephant trekking with them.

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!!!!

I learned diving here in 2012. The course were organised in a perfect way and I had a lot of pleasure. Melanie, the suisse owner of this diving school, ensures an environment were "Safety first!" is the overall slogan.
In november 2019 I returned fr 3 3-day diving safari on their specialized boat "Amapon"; we dived at Richelieu rock and other places. Again, we had a safe and phantastic trip.
I will come back to Khao Lak!
