Coming from the Similans, I arrived at Ko Lanta Pier at 5pm with the ferry boat from Phuket. The Flying Seahorse was there waiting for the passengers. I was welcomed by Mike and Jane, the two guides. Jane inspected my gear while I was rigging up, Mike went through my logbook, 66 tanks at that point of time. It's a... More

We have just completed our third trip on the Flying Seahorse and can only say positive things about the whole experience. Great diving, food and crew! One thing that really stands out is the divemasters. We went on a daytrip with another company, and the difference in the experience is really huge. Mike and Jane is really good and will... More

The whole crew worked hard to give us an awesome experience and thats what it was. You'll dive some amazing reefs and have a great trip. In addition the food was also excellent. Many thanks to the whole... More

I started this trip with 9 dives and now have over 30 (I went on a 7-day trip). The flying seahorse was everything I was looking for and more. The food was remarkably delicious given we were on a mid-sized dive boat for five straight days. Seriously I would rank this four stars as a restaurant. The dive masters (I... More

Great boat, great crew, awesome diving!! I had the best time on the flying seahorse and was lucky enough to get not 1 but 2 dives with Manta Rays. I highly recommend Lanta diving safaris. Thanks for making my trip so memorable.

Did the 5D/5N trip from Lanta up to Richlieu rock and while we never saw the elusive Whale sharks and mantas I nevertheless had a great trip. The biggest part of that was the crew, from the guys always helping with your gear when on the dive deck, the amazing chef always bringing out delicious dishes right when you need... More

We stayed 2 days on the boat with one night. We enjoyed the king-size bed cabin with aircon, which was fine. Food is nice as well as the staff. We had a bit a grumpy dive master which looks like she had a hangover the day before. Dive sites (6 in total) were good with a special mention for Anemone... More
