MV AOW MUANG: She's 25 meters long, and the second largest boat we have in our fleet. Aow Muang translates into Mango Bay which is one of Koh Tao's more poular snorkelling & Diving beaches. She's captained by one of the youngest but friendliest Captains on Koh Tao Captain Nittipong. Aow Muang has an inside saloon & an outside saloon which makes this boat perfect for our student boat and is usually the one we put our Open Water Courses on. Good in the waves, and easy to get in & out of the water. A perfect boat for beginners to learn all they need about diving. Its also a very sociable boat and a popular one with all our guests.

In the Beginning... 1991 to be exact, we opened a small little dive shop at the end of the pier. At that time it was only the second shop on Koh Tao. We sat around most of the day waiting for customers to arrive on the island once a day! But it wasn't long before scuba divers started hearing of this unexplored diving paradise around a little known island about 90 kilometers north of Koh Samui, Thailand. By 1999, as Koh Tao was beginning to get a mention in the Rough Guides Lonely Planets, we expanded a little opened the Resort on Sairee Beach. A 5 Star PADI Gold Palm Resort, with a Beachside Dive center, bar restaurant operating, with 2 purpose built Dive Vessels, leaving the choice of divesites upto our guests leaving directly from our Resort. The Resort comprised of 5 Beachside fan bungalows as well as over 20 fan rooms all with ensuite bathrooms another 10 Air Conditioned rooms. Our own Big Blue Restaurant Beach Bar quickly became a favourite with guests locals alike with its ambient al fresco style dining quite literally on the waters edge an amazing seat when it came to enjoying some of the worlds best sunsets at one of the islands most popular beachside bars. By 2000 we branched out opened up a small Dive Center in the heart of Koh Samui with luxury speed boat trips to the best divesites around Koh Tao and Koh Nang Yuan, as well as the legendary Sail Rock, the best Divesite in the Gulf of Thailand the then famous Angthong National Marine Park. (The setting for Alex Garlands Best selling book- The Beach). From here we also offerred overnight trips to Koh Tao so our Samui customers could enjoy a real taste of island life. Then in 2003 we opened the West Coast of Thailand in the sleepy seaside resort town about an hour north of the touristic island of Phuket, making us instantly one of Thailands biggest Dive operators. Here we originally offerred Full Day trips to the Similans and before too long we were also offerring Liveaboard cruises onboard our own private Liveaboard MV Halleluja, as well as faster daily speedboat services to the world famous Similan Islands the more challenging divesites of the Surin Islands including the legendary Koh Bon (Manta Rays) Koh Tachai (Leopard Sharks) in the words of Jacques Cousteau Thailands Number One Dive Site - Richelieu Rock (Whalesharks).
