MV Lapat in the Similans



For your Koh Tachai scuba diving day trip, Similan Seven Sea Club wants you to get the most out of your Koh Tachai day trip. Our fast transfer speedboat, the Nawanoppa, which in Thai means ‘a new step’, takes only 80 minutes to reach Koh Bon where you will board our spacious diving boat, the MV Lapat.

After a warm welcome aboard the MV Lapat and a thorough briefing, snorkel guests depart on the Nawanoppa speedboat to explore the calm, shallow reefs, while divers get ready for their first dive, plunging into the beautiful, cyrstal clear waters of the Andaman Sea. We dive and snorkel in small groups to give you the best possible service and experience.

All guests return to the MV Lapat for a buffet lunch and a more relaxed and extended surface interval. During lunch there is plenty of time to sunbathe on our sun deck, snorkel around the boat or relax with a good book. If your feeling hot then take cooling break in the air-conditioned lounge. On some days we can also arrange for beach transfers for those who prefer to feel sand between their toes. Following lunch, snorkelers will once again depart for another exotic location while divers prepare for their second dive into the Similan Islands wonderland.

After the day’s excitement, the Nawanoppa is ready and waiting to take you back to Tap Lamu Pier, returning at approximately 4:40pm before transfers back to your hotel or resort.

Whichever you enjoy the most, diving, snorkelling or simply whiling away the hours on the beach, only Similan Seven Sea Club has the flexibility and resources to ensure you get the most out of your day.

If you want to spend more time aboard you can simply ask to stay onboard overnight, if we have space available you can extend your trip. Or why not book a short overnight trip, with daily transfers Similan Seven Sea Club offers a variety of flexible overnight packages.

Due to the restrictions of having only a limited number of divers on each dive site in the Similan Islands National Marine Park, you need to book a day trip at least 2 to 3 days in advance to avoid disappointment on not diving the day you would like.

Tachai Pinnacle is 12 meters below the surface, reaching down to 30-35 meters, this is a beautiful site. It is in the shape of a dome. The site is also known as the DOME.

What can you see here? What can’t you see. You will see Hard Corals and Sea Whips, big schools of Barracudas, Batfish, Tuna, Bluefin Trevally, Snappers, Fusiliers, Triggerfish, Eels, Nudibranchs, to name a few.

But please keep an eye open for something big… Like a Whale Shark or Manta Ray.

All the prices are in Thai Baht.


Our boat crews are all experienced, well trained in boat handling, friendly and helpful. The captain is very familiar with the islands and the dive sites as well as all the standard safety procedures. You will have a sincere, warm welcome onboard and be well looked after during your stay on our boat.
