Would you love to scuba dive healthy reefs, full of colourful soft coral gardens with amazing topography? If so, Koh Lipe is the place for you! Due to it's location in the Andaman Sea (south-west Thailand) the diving around this tropical island boasts a huge diversity of marine life. You can expect to encounter lots of different species on a single dive. The variation of dive sites is just as great and you'll rarely arrive at a site and find another boat there. Some dive sites are calm and peaceful (ideal for learning to dive), while others offer fun drift-dives where you can cruise along the reef watching everything pass you by, like a movie on a screen. When all that is said, the main reason why you should take a trip to Koh Lipe is that the island is still very unspoiled, both on land and in the surrounding ocean. It really is a true pearl in the ocean!
Koh Lipe might be the most magical place in the Andaman Sea. Situated in the south west of Thailand in the Tarutao National Park and part of the Butang archipelago, this is truly paradise for backpackers and others seeking the island life as it used to be. This is one of the very few islands where the corals are in pristine condition even on the main beach and absolutely perfect for diving.
As far as the island goes, the atmosphere is unbeatable, and can't be compared to any island in Thailand. Chilled beach bars, perfect white sand and cozy accommodation makes you wanna hang around forever. No clocks, no hassle just Utopia on a lush green island full of some quite authentic people from a very mystic past of this archipelago.
On the day of arrival you will be greeted in the dive center, shown your room and given an orientation of the island activities and of the dive sites or courses you will be doing. You'll be doing two dives a day. Between dives you hang out on the boat where the lunch will be served or on the beach depending if you are doing beach or boat dives. A third dive or a night dive can be organized on location for an extra fee, unless it is included in your package. There will be no refund on dives not used. Check out time is 10.00 am but you can leave your stuff in the reception or the dive center until your boat leaves
This is the short option with 4 dives spread out on 2 days of diving, one day of rest and 3 nights of accommodation, the dive sites will vary depending on weather and experience level.
See extended packages for longer itineraries.
Please allow a minimum of 24 hours, after your last dive, before flying.
