Not a diver but ready to explore the tropical Similan Islands? No problem! We are always happy to have snorkellers on board who – for whatever reason – decide to not Scuba dive. Our guides will assist you on board and in the water during our cruises to ensure that your island outing will be an enjoyable day in paradise.
Unlike the most dive operators, our snorkellers are not mixed with divers on board, assuring that both - divers and snorkellers - get the most out of their daytrip. After a sixty minute ride to the Similan Islands with our speedboat, the divers enter the Angel 1 to dive from there.
With snorkellers only and our experienced snoekelling guide on board, our speedboat will continue the journey to visit some of the most beautiful snorkelling spots in the area. There our snorkellers will find and abundance of colorful coral and reef fish in crystal clear and shallow water.
Daily, around 08:00am the Speedboat starts from Tab Lamu harbor in Khao Lak bound for the Similan Islands.
The early start and the 35 knots speed assure that we reach the Similan Islands in approx. one hour, enabling
us to have a relaxed and comfortable day at the Similans giving us the chance to dive before the
other daytrip boats arrive.
The Angel One is moored at the Similan Islands, supporting our plan of dives on four different dive sites per day as both boats sail to different dive spots. As soon as the speedboat arrives, the divers board the Angel One, while the snorkellers stay on board, assuring that they will visit prime snorkelling sites which are located away from the dive sites. The long surface interval offers plenty of time to relax, swim and enjoy the tropical beaches.
The second dive will be conducted at 1:30pm. None diving guests can enjoy snorkeling the picturesque coral reefs that surround the islands again, as our Angel Two speedboat will transport snorkeler’s to the best accessible reef sites. If you should decide to stay overnight, onboard lodging on the Angel One is available on request for a maximum of 12 people. The day is concluded with a 3:00pm departure to the mainland reaching Tab Lamu harbor around 4:30pm, followed by the transfer back to your hotel.
Koh Tachai/Koh Bon & Richelieu Rock/Wreck cruises:
Several times per week, we offer an unbeatable day dive trip with our new speedboat Angel III with either destination Koh Bon, Koh Tachai or Richelieu Rock and the Bonsoong Wreck. These dive sites are not part of the 9 Similan Islands and offer a completely different dive experience as they are hot spots for manta, whale shark and reef shark encounters. The trip will depart at 08:00am daily from Tab Lamu, Khaolak and return around 5:00pm that same afternoon.
