Welcome to the Ocean Dragon, purchased and refitted by The Dive Inn in April 2013.
This traditional Thai vessel was converted from its previous life as a fishing trawler into a fully customised dive boat capable of catering for up to 40 divers (including staff).
Unlike vessels which have been relocated from Thailand's west coast, and beyond, The Ocean Dragon was built specifically to deal with wind and waves conditions here in the Gulf of Thailand.
The main tank area is located at the spacous front deck of the boat, with some smaller tank racks at the aft end that can be utilised on busier days.
Meals, snacks and hot and cold drinks are served from a large food counter which is situated in front of the captain's cabin.
The relatively large bathroom is towards the rear of the main deck, just behind the engine room and galley, and is easily large enough to change in and out of wet clothes.
The upper deck is furnished with small tables and soft cushions and is ideal for relaxing during the trip.
