PADI 5 Star IDC Center and Khao Lak’s first and original Dive Center since 1993 – our success is due to our loyal return customer base. Specializing in liveaboard dive trips we offer a choice of two different boats and six different liveaboard trips ranging from 1 – 7 days to the islands of the Andaman Sea. Whilst each of our boats and trips is individually tailored to reflect your various tastes and budgets, they all share common ground with an emphasis on high safety standards, personalised friendly service, excellent food and, of course, lots of fun. Additionally, we offer local diving to our house reef and our three local wrecks, and can arrange Similan day trips with a selection of other dive operators in town. For those of you who wish to begin or advance your diving, our friendly staff can conduct the full range of PADI dive courses in many languages, from beginner through to Instructor. Hope to see you soon!

I've just returned from the 2 night 3 day similar day liveaboard and all I can say is wow! I knew it would be an amazing experience but it far superseded all expectations and I don't just mean the diving. The diving was, as you might expect, incredible. We saw octopus, moray eels, sea snakes, porcupine fish, puffer fish, nudibranches,... More

Done the budget 3 days 2 nights tour with sea dragon and I can't recommend it enough. Price was incredible for what you get. 8 divers sleep together in a small boat upstairs, not for those who need privacy but ideal for those who want a great price and good company. Dive guides Deer and Stephen were great, dive crew... More

We found this outfit to be quite pro yet informal which is a good combo for a serious recreation activity concerned with vacationing scuba folks. We took out a private boat and guide to a little reef near the harbor, and found the water and coral to be mediocre but didn't see anyone else there!

I was on a 4 day diving trip but snorkeled only. The stuff were great and supported me, took me closer to the shore if needed and picked me up. We visited nice locations and had superb experiences. Great team, very small diving groups, best food and very well organized trip. Good value for money.

I went twice on a liveaboard to the Similan Islands. Great trips! I also did my Rescue Diver training here, which was great. All in all, highly recommended!

I did a DSD course with my wife in the Similan Islands. We were picked up at our hotel on time and brought to the pier. We were supplied with breakfast, sea sickness tablets and towels. We were given a safety briefing on the 3.5 hour trip over to the islands. When we arrived we got suited up and jumped... More

Sixteen years ago we choose sea dragon to go on a Dive liveaboard for 5 days diving around the Surin Similan islands. We had such a fabulous experience then that we always said that once the kids were old enough and had there Padi open water we'd go back, so we did! Same boat, the MV Andaman, but luckily renovated... More

We booked a 4 nights (14 dives) live-aboard diving trip with Sea Dragon and we have only good words to say about the organization, the boat , the dive instructors and the crew. The privet rooms are nice, comfortable and offering the sometimes necessary privacy on such a small boat. Also the boat has a lot of commune space where... More
