Thailand, a nation well known for its fabulous diving, rich culture, exotic cuisine, beautiful and gracious people and elaborate monuments. The best diving in Thailand & Myanmar is found in the Similan Islands, Burma Banks and Mergui Archipelago. Every type of sea life, from sharks, rays and mantas to incredible "critter" diving and macro photography can be found in Thailand. Noted for World-Class diving Thailand has quickly become one of our most popular destinations. Thailand offers dive resorts, liveaboard dive boats and all classes of hotels equipped for your diving vacation.

Diving Thailand: Thailand offers the best diving by live aboard dive vessel. Divers seeking clearer water can travel 70 miles west to the Similans, a group of 9 uninhabited islands preserved in their natural beauty as a national park.

Diving Thailand: The Similans offer both an astounding amount and variety of marine life. The reefs on the eastern side of the chain resemble the Caribbean with areas of branching coral and mounds of boulder corals sprouting from a white sand bottom. Red Sea type soft corals growing on massive granite rock structures dominate the western sides of the islands.

Bagan, MyanmarDiving Thailand: The Similans are a macro photographer's haven. Flowing through the soft corals are nudibranchs, small fish and crinoids elevated and swaying in the soft current. Loads of angel, butterfly and triggerfish maintain their place close to the granite rocks. These waters are home to the 'big' variety of fish as well, lots of shark variety such as leopard, silver tip, hammerhead, nurse sharks and the largest fish known as the WHALE SHARK!

Diving Myanmar: Other fabulous dive areas now open and part of many live aboard itineraries are the Burma Banks for great shark encounters and the Mergui Archipelago in Myanmar (Burma). Expect lots of sharks, rays, Manta's, great fish life and fascinating 'critter' diving with the likes of ghost pipefish, nudibranchs and other small weird and wonderful creatures.

The nutrients that support the prolific life here are brought by frequent upwelling, and can be rather turbulent at times, dropping the temperature several degrees with swift moving currents. *This is generally for advanced divers or experienced divers with some current dives under your weight belt.
