Kon-Tiki is an award winning diving and snorkeling center where involvement is the key theme. Awards: In 2008, PADI and Project AWARE awarded Kon-Tiki Thailand with the prestigious ”PADI/Project AWARE Marine Environmental Award” and in 2009 we were among the three finalist 2009. In 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009, Project AWARE has awarded Kon-Tiki Thailand with the “Project AWARE Environmental Award”. We are the only dive center in the world who has been awarded this for 4 years in a row. 2012 we got an award for “Outstanding Contribution to the Diving Industry”. Our key values: CARE – KNOWLEDGE – SAFETY is evident in everything we do. Care: Since we live to show people the wonders of our seas, we feel that it is crucial that we take responsibility for how we interact with that environment. This includes minimizing wear and tear of these fragile environments, but also educating ourselves and our customers, about how we can be part of the solution, rather than part of the problem. The value of caring is also relevant in all interrelationships between staff, guests and people we interact with. It is a basis from which we try to operate at all times.

I did my OW and AOW in February with Kon-tiki. I had the great opportunity to have Frank as my instructor which I'm very grateful for. I always felt very safe underwater knowing he was around. I learned a lot about diving and got to see amazing marine animals such as manta rays, sea horses and turtles. The crew and... More

We did our AOW Course in March and were really happy with the professional organisation Kon Tiki provides! Frank, our instructor from Belgium, was absolute top of the top and we felt safe from the moment we first met him. There were 3 divers in our group, which was perfect, as everyone got the attention they needed. The dive sites... More

We joined Kon-Tiki for a snorkeling day trip to Koh Ha. Everything about the process with them, from booking to the tour itself, I was very impressed with how organized and professional they were. Was a bit surprised by how much more expensive than other tour companies though (2900 TBH per person; most companies charge about 1500-1900 TBH). The boat... More

Hi Trisa and thank you for your generous feedback. We are especially happy that you appreciated our attention to quality and comfort. Your comment about price of course reflect exactly this. You mention prices below 2000 THB, but honestly I doubt you can find that on Lanta. Yes, some companies will advertise low prices, only to let you know that... More

Just did one day of diving with them, but was impressed with everything from booking to diving to transfer. I used to work as a dive instructor, so I am quite picky, but this center I won't hesitate to recommend :-) Great boat, great staff, great diving!

We booked a Dive Trip with the Kon-Tikki Team and everything was really professional! The three dive sides around Koh Haa where stunning, and we really recommend our Dive Instructor Jo, she was super nice and knowledgeable! Instructor Nick was really nice as well! You get a nice breakfast buffet, a big lunch (we had vegetarian curry with rice) and... More

My first impression of Kon- Tiki was just an inquiry that I had via email. They were very quick to respond. Once in the shop we learned that we needed our advanced open water certification to dive Hin Daeng/ Hin Muang. Our certification level was open water diver. That was a bummer as it seemed like it was the best... More

We were a family of three, with a 9yo kid. We went snorkeling with Kon-Tiki to Koh Haa, on a weekday. First of all, the service in their shop was excellent. We got really good help with choosing day and destination. On the day, pickup at our place went of without a hitch and travel to the boat was smooth.... More
