is the only Dive Center in Khao Lak that offers
special designed boats and itineraries dedicated to snorkelers' needs.
Until now snorkelers were treated as second class customers on
dive boats, barely catered to and classified as "non-divers".

here in Khao Lak, Thailand, we at MANTA POINT know how a group, couple
or family with kids can enjoy a liveaboard in the Similan Islands from
Khao Lak, esp. if not all wants to join the same activities.

This is followed at 07:30 by the first organized dive and snorkel session.
We return to the boat around 08:30 for the main breakfast.
The first buffet of the day and a mouthwatering selection of fried,
boiled or scrambled eggs, sausage, pancakes, bread, muesli
lots of fresh fruits and more!
After breakfast most people either relax on the sun deck, take a nap
in their cabins, enjoy a talk with fellow guests, tag along on a beach run
or an island excursion, or go for a snorkel session on their own.
At around 11:30 it is time for our second organized dive and
snorkel session. This is followed by lunch. Choose from 4 delicious
Thai and Western dishes. We promise you won't lose and weight while
cruising with M/V OKTAVIA! After lunch it is once again time to work hard -
continue reading in the hammock, tanning on sun deck, napping in the
cabin bunk, snorkeling in the warm and clear water, or some other
The third organized dive and snorkel session is scheduled for around
15:00. After that we serve some snacks and fresh fruits.
The following couple of hours are perferct for more relaxation on board
or on the beach, looking in fishguides, a snorkel session on your own,
or whatever else you feel up to.
The fourth and last dive
can happen before dark at 17:00.
Just don't miss the sunset at around 18:00 - it is extremely beautiful,
esp. at the Similan Islands.
Around 19:00 it is time for a night dive for the ones that still want more diving.
Dinner is served at 20:00. The rest of evening we sit around talking over over
a couple of cold beers, perhaps looking at someone's digital photos from
the days diving or snorkeling sessions, playing a game, or watching a movie
on the flat screen TV.
Having a wonderful time makes you tired, so most people head for their
cabins and bunks at around 22:00.
Some head for the sun deck to sleep
under the stars.
