The Discover Scuba Diving experience is a one day experience which allows you to dive to a maximum depth of 12 metres with one of our Instructors. PADI Discover Scuba Diving gives you a relaxed introduction to scuba diving in shallow water. You learn some basic underwater skills before enjoying a tour around one of the easy, lovely dive sites around Koh Samui.
Discover Scuba Diving is not a certification, but it is registered with PADI. It is an ideal way to find out if you like diving before taking the next step of the adventure with the PADI Scuba Diver or Open Water Course.
You can also get a photography package for Rs 2000 extra, where you can get your pictures clicked in between the two dives.

The day begins around 7 - 7.30am when we pick you up from your resort and take you to meet up with your Instructor. We then take you by speedboat to the beautiful island of Koh Tao, which is about 1 1/4 hours away. In Koh Tao, there are some fantastic bays which are ideal for beginners to experience diving for the first time, with clear blue water and lots of marine life for you to see.
For your first dive, we usually go to a bay which allows you to walk into the sea from the beach, helping you to slowly build up your confidence.
After you have completed the first dive we take a break for an hour or so when we serve lunch, which you can eat on the boat or on the beach. After lunch, we move the boat to another fantastic dive site to make your second dive. We arrive back to Koh Samui around 3.30pm.
