Behind the Scenes of a Dive Center

Obviously every business wants to offer a polished service with everything in place to accommodate its customers. Anti Gravity Divers is no different, and in order to achieve this goal we have enlisted help from friends, a lot of elbow grease, called in favours, suffered many late nights and generally grafted non-stop to get to where we are today... but we will never forget our humble beginnings :)

Deciding to have a Dive Shop in an already established Dive Area such as Koh Lanta was quite a challenge. We love challenge! Our plan has always remained the same... to offer a service that will result in happy customers and happy staff. If everyone is happy than we know we're on the right track.  Our vows from the beginning... never be scared to grow, to add more variety, to make more friends and always remember that the life we choose to live is because we love what we do.

Our first trips were done on traditional Thai long-tail boats. From here we managed to share a boat for one season, and finally obtained our own boat MV Angry Bird. We love our boat! :) :) :)  Having our own boat finally gave us the freedom to organize trips the way we've always wanted to, making the journey comfortable and the day out on the boat something to look forward to. The saddest part of the day is when the boat returns from a day trip :)

While our pool at Amantra still serves us well for our dive training, MV Angry Bird remains our pride and joy, faithfully transferring us from Klong Nin Beach in Koh Lanta to Koh Ha, Koh Bida, Koh Muk, Koh Ngai, Hin Daeng and Hin Muang - just some of the amazing Dive Sites available to us from Koh Lanta.

And finally, after 3 seasons of grafting and a lot of help from our amazing staff and friends we get our reward! Anti Gravity Divers is proud to announce our new status....
