- After Diving
You’ve finished your day of diving but then what to do? Khao Lak and Phuket Island are great places to be. They offer a broad range of out-of-the-water activities.
The great thing is that you always have the choice to be within the popular tourist spots or away from the hustle and bustle in a quiet local village, anything is possible here.
You can take part in a one day Sea Canoeing trip to Phang-nga Bay, Elephant bathing & trekking, visit Kao Sok National Park, attend the traditional snake and crocodile farm spectacles, visit the Buddhists temples, go Bungee Jumping, and of course sun bathing along the many busy or remote beaches.
Beside diving Khao Lak offers quiet white sand beaches, surrounded by jungle, you will also find small shopping areas, quiet restaurants and bars just a few meters from the sea…
Beside diving Phuket is the most popular tourist destination in South East Asia and is famous for its night life! You can enjoy an excellent dinner in one of the numerous Thai or western restaurants, stroll through traditional Thai night markets or take a drink at the 5 star beach front hotels with incredible views across the bay.
Thai Seafood, Swiss fondue, Italian pizza & pasta, German delicatessen, French ‘nouvelle cuisine’, are all there to be explored.
After your dinner, go for your shopping and/or let’s have a drink in one of Patongs bars before going to one of the many nightclubs (Tiger, Hollywood, Banana Club…).
You’ll no doubt feel hungry after dancing all night long. No worries, you can enjoy an early morning breakfast at the night market or among the multiple choice of food stalls.
But please remember alcohol and diving do not go together very well so have a safe evening and a safe morning dive!
We can propose you for your excursions, before or after your diving trip, the best operators and the good rate.
Take care the cheapest one proposed on the street or at the corner, it is often a pale copy without the appropriate quality and service.
After years, sending many divers joining a Diving Safari Similan Hin Daeng between the cruises, we well know which operators are the best.
We can organise from Khaolak or Phuket the following excursions:
- Phang Nga Bay / James Bond Island, in private with longtail boat (1/2 day ou 1 day)
- Phang Nga Bay / Sea Canoe – Limestone Caves Discovery and visit of the floating village
- 3 Temples Phang Nga
- Rafting + Elephant bathing
We do not organize Elephant Riding as we avoid this form of animal exploitation when business has become more important that the animal life conditions!
- Phuket visit with private taxi or minibus taking you to the most famous places, temples, market, …
- Khao Sok National Park
- Surin Islands discovery by speedboat from Khaolak
- Phi Phi Islands from Phuket
- And more …
We do not list any rates on this page as there are too many parameters and a page would not be enough to list them all (from where to where – ½ day or full day – how many persons – joined trip or private – …)
