From the time of booking to offboarding, all staff were professional, strong communicators who managed expectations and safety while having fun and clearly enjoying what they do. Equipment, boats and amenities all good quality. Had a great experience.

Had a fantastic day out with Lanta Diver... very professional and safety conscious... had breakfast and lunch on the boat, both of which were very good. Although the sea was rough with a strong current we were still able to enjoy the snorkelling under the careful watch of Nadine, who also made sure to point out all the beautiful fish, sea snakes and even a moray eel. . Nick the photographer took lovely underwater photos which you could buy if you wanted to but no pressure to do so. Would highly recommend this company for a wonderful experience.

The service was just amazing. We were lucky to have a dedicated divemaster/instructor that took care of us from before jumping on the boat till after we left the boat.
The boat is amazing, and allow to enjoy the 2h 'ride' to reach the dive site.

The instructor Klaus took care of my partner doing DSD. He was very professional, caring and managed to translate his calmness onto my partner that could eventually enjoy all the 3 dives.

The divemaster Roberta, took care of me, for my open water dives. She is amazing. She took care of my equipment, ensured I was fully aware of the dive site before jumping in the water and underwater she really took care of showing me anything she could see.

There is a photographer on the boat that follow the group and take professional photography that you can eventually buy. The photos are amazing. The one I uploaded have been taken from him.

We went to Koh Haa, and we did 3 dives. All the 3 spots are amazing. The reef is healthy and colorful. Banks of colorful and playful fish. Suggestive Caves.

The price is slightly higher than other dive sites in Thailand, but it's all worth it!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Me and my girlfriend had no diving experience whatsoever and booked the Discover Scuba diving course with Lanta Diver.

Our instructor Laurent was a very good teacher and took time to talk us through the different sealife we could come across on our dives.

There are two dives included in the package. The first one includes tests to show you know how to do the basics and be safe, following instructions from the instructor, before you continue to do a proper dive like everyone else with your instructor nearby to help if required.

There is an option to add on a third dive for a relatively small cost during the day. We did and were glad we did as we encountered two whale sharks on the 3rd dive, which was an amazing experience!

There was plenty of food and drink provided on the boat and there is a photographer that takes great pictures of you while diving, which you have an opportunity to buy at the end of the trip.

We have dived all over Thailand including liveaboard to Surins and Richilieu Rock and the Hin Muang and Hin Daeng dives were the best.

I tried the top rated dive outfit on Lanta, the one the advertises the most too, but found them not really friendly or helpful. I called a couple times. The last time they said could not take other divers which was fortuitous indeed because I next called Dive & Relax who was going elsewhere the next day and suggested Lanta.

Lanta was very friendly, did not require us to go to their office in advance to book/pay deposit and was 500 Baht cheaper. But best of all we were on a small speedboat with total of 8 divers. We arrived to find a liveabpoard had overnighted. They had finished diving and we got in right as a HUGE boat with 50 or so divers pulled up in the boat marked Blue Planet and this HAD to be the one carrying the divers from the top rated company as no other boat had arrived when we left at about 2pm.

So pay more to dive with a HUGE group or pay less to dive with an intimate group, its your choice. Laurent, our Swiss divemaster was excellent as was the captain and helper.

Hi! Thanks for choosing Lanta Diver and thank you for your positive review!! We try to make booking easy and smooth and we are happy to know you appreciated that! The speedboat to Hin Daeng is a good option as the journey is quite long with a big boat. Hin Daeng/Hin Muang is outstanding and we love to hear you enjoyed it too. We hope to see you soon again!

Had a great day, snorkelled in two locations round Koh Rok. Saw colourful coral, lots of cool fish and a mahoosive Barracuda. We shared the boat with two other people snorkelling and a few divers. It was a nice boat with loads of space. We weren't near any other tour groups all day. We had lunch on a small secluded beach. They gave us loads of food, fruit and cans of soft drinks throughout the day, as well as refillable water bottles. Drinks were kept in ice which was great. We had our own snorkelling guide and he was great. Everything was really professional and the equipment was some of the best we have seen. We paid 2300 baht each so well worth paying a little more than the standard tours. We had loads of time snorkelling and could have had more if we wanted, we weren't rushed at all.

Completed my PADI Open Water Course today with Lanta Divers.
Absolutely top notch from booking to finish
Brilliant support, high quality boat and staff, the Instructors are fantastic (esp MancGaz), the dive gear is in top condition, and the chosen dive sites brilliant.
I went with a fantastic mix of nationalities represented - and impressively all languages were more than adequately covered - even mine !
Could not recommend them highly enough

I may be back for more

I dove with Blue Planet Divers 6 years ago and it was great then. I found Lanta Diver to be even better. I did a refresher with Corey who was excellent and a great advocate for safe practices and good form. He has such an enthusiasm for diving and the sea even though he's been diving these sites for ages. Big dive boat was great. Lunch and drinks provided were also good.

The next day I did hin daeng where I also had two great dives. Can't fault the crew or any of the equipment. My only complaint was the speedboat is small and was super rocky once at the dive site. Some of us got motion sickness which made for a tougher day. Prices are on the high side for diving. It's almost doubled in price since 2013. Around $100AUD for a dive.

Other than that. Definitely recommend Lanta Diver for any divers coming for a dive.

Hi ! Thank you so much for your positive review! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed Diving with us! Yes the speedboat can be a bit rocky if it’s a windy day, which is the down side with all speedboats. If you dont mind the longer journey the big boat is a better option if you have tendency of getting sea sick. Thanks again for choosing Lanta Diver and we hope to see you soon again!

I was very happy with yesterdays snorkeling experience with Lanta Divers. Thank you Natalie! I recommend Lanta Diver for snorkeling, as opposite to the local touristy trips and many other dive companies, you get an instructor for each small snorkelers group, you get explained and showed special marine life and you get a brief regarding environment protections. Information is also possible in many languages with them. Great job! See you soon again
