Amazing Thailand, the land of Smile, became in the last years a very popular destination not only for Backpackers, but for everybody.
It became a tradition, a classic recommended in every guide: Traveling around South East Asia also means getting into Scuba Gear and getting the PADI Open Water Diver Certification and higher level.
Koh Tao is considered one of the cheapest place around the world to become a diver. Some people think the course is different then others places because of such low price, well no!
The PADI standards are the same every where around the world. The only difference is the diving environment. We teach in Tropical Water!
In 3 to 4 days, students complete all knowledge development, all skills and all dives in order to get certified. They learn all the basic of Diving, laugh a lot, make friends and discover the underwater world. Let’s be honest, it is in 90% of the case, the highlight or their trip!
The Open Water Course also gives a certification valid for life, everywhere around the world, to a Maximum depth of 18 meters. Even if a certified diver wake up one day after 10 years of no diving, the card is still valid. Only a little refresher course and they will be ready to go.
The conditions in the Gulf of Thailand are some of the best to learn. The Island offers a diversity of Dive Sites. Close to Island, places like White Rock, Twins, Mango Bay or Leam Thien are perfect for the first 2 dives as it suits perfectly a maximum depth of 12.
For dives 3 and 4, we takes our students to further dives sites, such as Chumphon Pinnacle or SouthWest Pinnacle to give them the chance to reach their maximum depth of 18 meters, but also to share with them those dive sites which are some of the most popular Dive Sites in Gulf of Thailand.
About Aquatic Life, everybody is well served. From common reef fish such as Angel, Butterfly and Banner Fish to the friendly turtles, the Trevaly hunting around or the Whale Shark showing us how elegant it can be. It’s all there. Koh Tao is very surprising when it comes to marine life! It’s all about being at the right place at the right moment!
Dive Instructors? Well they come from all over the world to teach their passion. Holland, Australia, New Zealand, England, Canada, Argentina, France…you name it!
The air temperature at the moment is about 37 degrees on the Island. The water temperature: 30 degrees!!! Condition are unbelievable and people are smiling.
Our diving package includes also 4 free nights accommodation. Perfect for the duration of the course, there won’t be much time spent in your room, but mainly in the water or sitting with your Instructor at the end of day, having a drink while talking about the whole experience!
Just look on the pictures, the smiles, the happiness…and these are just a few of the one we have from our courses, from the people with met in last few months.
