TRANSPORTATION:
Transportation depends on who would like to overnight on Fridays & Saturdays so please RSVP with your travel times & intentions.

Minivans leave from MoChit BTS every 15-30 mins & takes about 2 hours with no traffic @92B/person: http://www.pattayavan.com/

NOTE: Morning departures to catch the boat on time should leave around 6:15 & no later than 6:30am! If you catch a different minivan company, you’ll likely get there later & pay a different price. Take the first BTS to arrive MoChit before 6am & you should be on time.

Once on the minivan, let driver know your destination of Bali Hai Pier & they usually drop off right at the pier.

Leaving from Ekkamai station starting 5am @ 120-140B/person:

The arriving station is not close to the pier & a taxi charges about 140-200 Baht to Bali Hai pier. By SongThaew BahtBus, it would be 20-30 Baht and 20-40 mins.

Dives usually finishes by 4-6pm each day so getting back to Bangkok is about 7-9pm. Here’s some specific info:

If you plan to leave on the morning of the dive, make sure you leave early enough for a 8:45am boat boarding.
NOTE: There are no refunds if you miss the boat.

NOTE: Leaving on Friday evening between 4:30-8pm often means 3-5 hours travel time instead of 2 hours due to traffic.
So plan accordingly…
