Need a room buddy?

Calling all our freedivers yet to organise a room on Lanta, I have a few people wanting a buddy to share the cost of a room. If you are interested in sharing then let me know and I can put you in touch with each other.

Hope the training is going well, see you all soon

Need us to help you with accommodation?

Gediminas, one of our owners, has just built a new hotel in Saladan. Built over the sea all the accommodation offers either air conditioning or a fan option (at a reduced cost). It is less than 300m from our pier, within the main town almost next door to the passenger ferry, so if you are looking for great value accommodation I really recommend it (my uncle is currently staying there!).

Gediminas is offering a special rate to all our competitors of 1200 baht for an air conditioned room or 1000 baht for a fan room. All rooms have a hot shower, flatscreen tv, fridge and come as either a twin room or double room.

If you would like to book, let me know

See you soon Mellisa xx

We are so pleased to announce that Mr D, one of our fantastic competitors from last year, is coming back for this years competition.

Yoga Available throughout the Competition

Happy New Year everyone and apologies for it being so long between blogs, but we have been crazy busy at the shop and the partying never seemed to stop.

But now our focus is on our Freediving competition and we are already designing the t-shirts and refining the program.

However, this year we have a new offering for our competitors, Ken Kiriyama, a previous competitor at the competition, is offering to provide you with Yoga training throughout the event. We at Blue Planet Divers are already avid Yoga fans, so hopefully the classes will be well attended. Closer to the event we will let you know the times but if you are interested, as this will help us plan the timing right.

See you all real soon
