After 3 years of waiting, our annual 5D4N New Year’s Eve trip to Koh Lanta, Thailand is finally back! 🇹🇭 This NYE Dive Trip to Koh Lanta has been a yearly staple of BOD since 2015, and we are so happy to bring it back as the perfect trip to ring in the new year! 🎉 Our customers LOVE this trip. This is because they get to experience a new part of Thailand with familiar people here at BOD as tour guides 📸. They get to explore this part of Thailand, while travelling with wonderful company, food, and diving. 🤿
This is the perfect fun-filled trip for the whole family, including the non-divers. All you have to do is show up — and we’ll take care of the rest.
Boasting for having the best diving on Thailand’s west coast, Koh Lanta is a popular destination for scuba divers. Thanks to its colourful reefs, substantial drop-offs, and attractive caverns, it is a hotspot for scuba divers looking for adventure. 🤿
Expect to see a lot of colourful reefs. Light currents cause Gorgonian sea fans to sway, while carpets of anemone swarms the pinnacles. For the enjoyment of macro enthusiasts, keep an eye out for blacktip reef sharks, hawksbill turtles, and several species of nudibranchs, shrimp, pipefish, and seahorses. Diving in Koh Lanta is also known for whale shark and manta ray sightings so be sure to keep one eye out in the blue! 🦈
One of the highlights is diving at the Koh Haa Yai dive site (a.k.a. The Cathedral). It is covered with a variety of soft corals, sea fans and hard corals, with 2 underwater caves at a depth of 12m. (see trip highlights below!)
Arrive, settle in, and relax! Feel free to hop into a tuk tuk with the group and experience Big Ocean Dive’s favourite hotspot on the island!
