Speedboat The White Bird
Onboard the 'White Bird' you can join day trips to Richelieu Rock, one of the top dive sites in Thailand, and to the nearby situated Surin Islands in the Andaman Sea in Thailand.
About the boat
'The White Bird' was newly built in 2012 and developed to the needs of divers and snorkelers.
The speedboat has 2 outboard showers, a toilet with a holding tank, a store room and two large bunks in a shaded area for seating and storing dive equipment sets. In the front of the boat is an open-air sitting area, where you can enjoy the views over the ocean. A spacious diving platform, in particular with the two side-mounted ladders, make the entry- and exit as comfortable and safe as possible.
Powered by 2 Honda 4-stroke 225 HP high-performance engines, she drives in just over an hour, 3 times a week, to the Surin Islands and Richelieu Rock. Speedboat 'The White Bird' consists entirely of GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic), which is very sturdy and considered to be unsinkable.
Day trips are organized with a maximum of 10 divers, or with a combination of divers and snorkelers.
On a tour is everything you need durng a day trip available, like fresh fruits, cold drinks, lunch (also for vegetarian), snacks inbetween. In case needed, also a first aid kit is available onboard. Most importantly: full sets of new diving quipment and snorkel sets are on the boat available too.
