Tourists Top Tips To Diving

Ko Lanta is known for its breath taking and diverse diving. Here are some top tips we think can help you have a fantastic stay while you enjoy your much deserved dives.

  1. Research the dive centres you are interested in. They may look good on the outside but what are they doing behind the scenes? Find out what they are doing to help Lantas environment on land and in the sea.  See if they are trying to maintain an eco friendly dive operation, i.e recycling, clean ups, anchoring, green fins.
  2. The dive boat will be a way to relax throughout the day. How many passengers does the boat hold? What lay out is there? What area do you have for gearing up when your getting ready to dive?
  3. The staff – Its always great to see a friendly face, try and meet a few members of staff so you know who you will be sharing your day with
  4. The dive sites – Ask for an update on the sites conditions.Visibility and current can have a massive impact on the dive. How many will be in your group and will they be at the same level as you
  5. Lunch!!! you need to keep your energy up while diving so find out what refreshments they have on board. Its always good to find out whats on the menu if you have any dietry requirements
  6. Familys – Can you bring your children on board and if so what areas have they got to keep them entertained! Will there be lifejackets onboard for them? Can you snorkel instead of dive?
  7. Equipment – if you dont own your own equipment, the equipment rental is an important one to enjoy your dive comfortably. Make sure the dive centre has your correct sizes and ask what condition the equipment is in.
  8. Prices – Cheaper is not necessarily better, you usually pay for what you get with diving so with all the questions above you should find the dive centre which suits your individual needs

Who ever you decide to dive with we know you will have a fantastic time exploring our sites. Ko Lanta has alot to offer so make sure you are prepared to have the time of your life!
