We just finished our 2,5 days Open Water training in the delightfull Similan Islands. While the weather was unsure on the coast, the blue sky was expecting us on the Islands. Beautyfull scenery (blue ocean, white sandy beach, and amazing underwater life: Sea Turttles, Corails, colorfull fishes.... Everything was well organised by Michael from taxi pick-up from our hotel, to private swimming pool half-day first training, speedboat transfert to the Similan Islands, and warm and professional service onboard of our hotel-boat. Off course, our dive-master was part of this lifetime experience.

Originally, we contacted Wan and Michael for an open water diving course. They organised everything for us, including accommodation in Khao Lak and airport pickup from Phuket. We then also booked a three-day diving trip on a liveaboard (MV Amapon) and had a wonderful time on the boat. After this trip, they recommended and organised the transport and accommodation for our journeys to Khao Sok National Park and Ko Phra Thong. They booked everything for us from hotels to transport and that all for an amazing price. We can only recommend Private Holidays, not only for diving, but also for all sorts of trips in this region of Thailand. Thank you again Wan and Michi for this wonderful time!

... to quote an old JH-classic. Well, Michael ("Michi") certainly is! He and his charming girlfriend Wan run this great dive shop near Bang Niang Beach. He has been a Dive Instructor in Khao Lak now for more than 16 years. Michael makes things happen. Booking dive trips or other excursions with them practically guarantees organizational perfection. Or call it Swiss precision. Any questions apart from booking are also dealt with in a matter of fact but very helpful and friendly atmosphere. The scuba diving equipment is in great shape. For my two weeks stay this January, I also booked an apartment through Private Holidays. It was right next door, in the closely affiliated Moonlight House - simple, clean and great qpr. I had the pleasure of diving with Michael a few times. Very relaxed and save diving. What I heard from some of his students, he is also a great teacher/instructor (PADI) and therefore worth a recommendation, if you plan to start diving or acquiring a higher certification. Obviously you will find many Swiss as well as other German speaking customers at Private Holidays. But English speaking guests will also have no problems communicating. I am sure you will not be disappointed. Next time I go diving to Khao Lak, I will surely return to Michael and Wan.
