Ric and Clive are the real deal. They're dive masters that have worked together on the same boat for 7 years. A rare treat in a business where the typical guide is traveling through during or after uni for 1-2 seasons. After so many years, it is clear they like each other and work well together which creates a really fun and great atmosphere on their boats. In my mind,critical for a great liveaboard experience.

They love to dive and want to have the best dive every dive. Since they're still guiding on boats, they know what's going on day by day and where the best spots are. On my liveaboard trip to Mynamar and Thailand, they constantly discussed the conditions and adjusted the schedule for the best spots for conditions. If all the other boats typically dive a spot in the morning, they'll come in the afternoon and go somewhere else in the morning to avoid diving with the dozen other boats. This was more the case in Thailand than in Mynamar where it was just us and the occasional sea gypsie.

Myamar is fairly virgin diving territory and having a good guide is critical. They've been running up into the arcipelago for 7 years, one of the longest I imagine. They're still finding new sites out there sharing these rare gems with their customers!

If you dive with Thailand Dive and Sail, you will not be disappointed. These guys know everything there is to know about diving in the Similan Islands and Mergui Archipelago. Their experience, expertise and knowledge of diving in the area is second to none as they've been diving in the region for many years now and they have real local knowledge. I've been diving with them several times over the last few years in both the Similans and Mergui Archipelago and highly recommend diving with them.

Big thanks to both Ric and Clive for an amazing trip around the Similan Island, West coast of Thailand. We had an fantastic time and it was made even better by Ric and Clive the TDS guy's. They showed the best and least crowded dive sites and always found great little things on ever site. Their knowledge of the area and diving is second to none!!!! We had brand new Aqualung BCD's and regs (the only things we needed to hire) and never had any problems with bad air.

Thanks a lot Thailand Dive and Sail for an amazing and very memorable holiday, see you again in March!!!

 

Amazing experience!

Have had the pleasure of diving with these guys both at Similan Islands and Mergui Archipelago. They have an impressive knowledge about the region and definitely some of the most experienced dive staff out there. They are very passionate of what they are doing, which always makes a dive trip with these guys an amazing experience. I'm addicted and will be coming back :-) I give my best recommendations!
