Lanta Diver is a Scandinavian five star PADI IDC centre based on the beautiful island of Koh Lanta. We are ready to bring to you some of the most fantastic places we have found while diving in the waters here.
Everyday our boats visit different top class dives sites in the South Andaman Sea. Our boats are spacious and with our excellent crew of Divemasters, Instructors, boat crew and cooks, no effort is spared in order to make your day at sea memorable, fascinating and immensely enjoyable. We maintain a high level of personal customer service by keeping our groups small (never more than 4 divers), and by giving that little bit of extra time for our customers.
Lanta Diver was the first dive centre to obtain the PADI Five Star IDC status on the island. The 5 star rating is a quality stamp obtained after being awarded educational, environmental and retail recognition from PADI, the worlds largest diving organisation. We offer the full range of PADI courses from introductory Discover Scuba Diving programs, through to beginners' Open Water Courses and on to the professional level Divemaster and Instructor programs.
As the first dive center of our kind we are offering you a combination of training and certification in Sweden and in Thailand. You might prefer to start your training in Sweden where you can study the theoretical parts and do the confined water exercises in a local swimming pool. You complete the training and gain your certificate after a couple of days in Thailand. Alternatively you can now sign up for the PADI e-learning and complete your theory on line, therefore reducing the time spent in the classroom.

Every day, on the beach by our booking office, we have activities for those of you who have not yet tried diving. If you are a bit unsure of whether or not to train for a dive certificate, this is where you can experiment to learn what it is like to breathe under water using a regulator, and if you feel comfortable, to take a short swim with one of our dive masters.
Our boat M/S Lanta Diver I is officially known as Choksombon 3. This proud 22 meter long and 5,5 meter wide boat provides plenty of room for a leisurely day onboard.
Our speedboat, M/V Lanta Diver II, is a 36 foot fibreglass Steppa Craft with double 225 four stroke Honda engines, the most environmentally friendly engines available on the market. With 12 divers on board, she can cruise at 25 knots which means we can offer day trips by speedboat as well as providing private charters on request.
On our live aboard trips 18 persons sleep comfortably in two-bed cabins or you can also spend the night on deck under the stars. Good showers, ample fresh water tanks and a fully equipped kitchen make for a very comfortable time.
Lanta Diver 1 is equipped with an electric compressor, oxygen equipment, life vests, communication radio and other safety equipment.
Diving manuals and guides have time after time rated the dive spots around Koh Lanta as the best in Thailand. The dive sites offer a large variety of well kept coral reefs, amazing drop offs, caves and wrecks. Listed below are a few of the dive spots, which can be reached by boat in an hour, or two from Koh Lanta.
