Abraham gave us a very good service, he was not pushing at all and was always very friendly. Very fast responding to his emails. Dutch speaking which was very nice for us! He's the man to arrange your trip into the ocean!

When we talked to the staff of the company, they told us some reasons, why we should choose them and not the cheap others. He gave us many and for us- very important- reasons. First of all,... More

Booked a trip thru Abraham on the MV Camic which is operated by Similan Seven Sea Club. The diving was excellent, the guides were professional and the food was good. It's important to note if you are booking overnite, don't assume there are 20-some people on board. They run daytrips out to this boat and there may be 30, 40,... More

Put this on your dive bucket list! I am very new to diving, wet behind the ears so to speak ;) but I must say that my trip(s) with Khao Lak Scuba Adventures (aka Similan Dive Center) will probably have me wondering why I tried diving anywhere else in the future.
