Diving Koh Tao and Chumphon Aboard the Tapana Catamaran

The Tapana Catamaran is a brand new, twin hull dive boat. It's very nicely appointed and, for the most part, very convenient. During the monsoon season the boat does weekend live aboard dive trips from Chumphon. We made the trip by driving from home in Korat to our condo in Cha Am and then on to Chumphon.

On the way we stopped at a new restaurant, Ribs Mann, near Khao Yai National Park.
