Ko Lanta is an extremely popular scuba diving destination. Although there is no scuba diving direct on Ko Lanta, some of the best dive sites in Thailand are a short boat trip away. Because of this pretty much all diving excursions are a full day trip on a boat. Most dive trips leave Koh Lanta around 8am and return between 4pm and 6pm depending on the dive sites visited.
Some of the most popular destinations are:
- Koh Haa
- Koh Phi-Phi
- Koh Rok
- Hin Daeng & Hin Muang
There are numerous dive companies on the island, standards are typically excellent with well equipped dive boats, good equipment and very experienced diving staff, divemasters and instructors.
