THAILAND DIVE & SAIL was established in 2007 by a group of diving fanatics with over ten years of experience working in various locations in the Andaman Sea – from the Similans in Thailand, to the Mergui Archipeligo in Burma, to the Andaman Islands. We have created a new, concise and user-friendly site, containing the current information we, as professionals, hope is most useful in planning your visit to this area. We provide divers, sailors, snorkellers and visitors with up-to-date trip news and offers, authentic dive-site maps, precise environmental conditions at a glance and a source of complete, relevant information regarding the Andaman Sea area.

Once again Ric, Sam and Clive came up trumps and organised a great liveaboard on the M/V Hallelujah with Clive as our dive guide. Clive got us through our Nitrox certification too ;-) Everything went really smoothly and Clive was the best guide ever. Now our 'official' Thailand Similan dive guide forever! The boat was great and the dive crew... More

We booked 4 days Similan Islands with Thailand dive&sail and were very happy with that. We could try the material in advance, Sam responded my many questions quick and satisfying and we had a great time on the MV Octavia! Ric even made a presentation about Manta Rays, their live and science trying to find out more about this impressive... More

When my bf and I decided that we should do a liveaboard at famous Similan Islands, we combed through the web, and Thai dive & sail's website popped and stood out as most "legit" and informative one amongst all we found. We sent an email to enquire, and their response was super prompt. My queries and response were answered within... More

Diving with Thailand Dive and Sail has been an awesome experience. Staying 4 days on the beautiful Bunmee II was amazing. The food was delicious, the crew was nice and friendly and the diving was excellent! I took my open water certificate with Ric, one of the instructors on board. He was a really nice guy.

That's why I came back after 5 years. My expectations were exceeded, again. Usually I planned only one trip out to the Similans with the Bunmee II, but.... I ended up with 3 in a row.

Their boutique timber boat, MY Bunmee 2, was expertly captained by Khun Wirra, and Khun Num, Khun Bing, Khun Pai and the cook Khun Bo ensured that our every comfort and diving... More

We did a three day Open Water course, consisting in one day of pool training and two days in liveaboard at the Similan Islands. Everything was perfect: the boat, the food, the equipment, the dive sites... and the instructor was outstanding :-)
