Many years ago, lying on a beach under the coconut trees, we imagined a small, friendly dive operation on a relaxed tropical island which focused on providing the best possible diving experience to our guests.
We imagined building a small, passionate team that loved working together and which would include some of the most experienced, knowledgeable and professional dive instructors, dive masters and boat crews on the island.
Located on Long Beach, Koh Lanta, Dive & Relax is exactly what we imagined it would be. We do our very best to provide a friendly, professional, safe and fun dive experience and we love to share this with others.
Having come to the conclusion that small groups, safety and personal attention are the best way to deliver great customer service, we decided to operate two speed boats, rather than larger, slower dive boats which could accommodate many more divers. Of course, diving from a slow boat is also great fun, but we just prefer speed boats.
We know that you work hard and that your well earned holiday time is very valuable, which is why we know that once you arrive on the island, our job is to help you relax, enjoy the diving and have a great time here on Koh Lanta.
Some of the biggest benefits to diving from speed boats are the later departures, shorter journey times and smaller groups.
Dive & Relax owns and operates two 11m (35 ft) customised speed boats featuring comfortable seating, purpose built tank racks, on-board western-style toilet and 2 fresh water showers.
High season trips depart from Long Beach at 9am (8am for Hin Daeng & Hin Muang), and enjoy short journey times between 30 and 60 minutes to some of the best dive and snorkel sites in Thailand. With an early afternoon return to Koh Lanta around 2pm, you can save between 3 and 6 hours travel time each day, giving you more time to relax on the beach and enjoy your valuable, well-earned holiday time...
We carry a maximum of 10 diving guests or 12 snorkelers on board each of our boats per day (or a combination of this) and small diving groups of typically only 2 or 3 with each professional guide (max 4).
Take advantage of free, unlimited soft drinks on board our boats while you are diving or snorkeling with us, together with a superb Thai food lunch prepared by one of the best restaurants on the island and fresh, local fruit.
