Koh Tao offers some of the best diving in the Gulf of Thailand. This, coupled with the crystal clear, calm waters and 365 days of diving every year, make it the worlds best place to learn how to dive.
If you want to try scuba diving but not quite ready for a certification course or you have limited time on the island. The “Try Dive” will let you experience scuba diving at real dive sites in just half a day to see if you like it.
The key to the Try dive is that you put your faith in us, the professionals. Only the most experienced of Instructors lead teams of 4 divers or less. You need no prior experience for this; you don’t even need to be able to swim! Our Instructors will give you the basic knowledge required to understand your equipment, the aquatic environment and what we do to be safe in the water.
Then we will head out on the Roctopus Boat and visit our first dive site. Here we will spend time building confidence in very shallow water before moving into deeper water to explore the corals and marine life under the direct control of our instructor. After about an hour in the water we will get back onto the boat and head to dive site number 2 where there is an option to complete a second dive or simply laze around soaking up the sun and go for a refreshing swim.
