Travel to the beautiful jungle island of Koh Tao to dance barefeeted in the sand at the beachbars, hike around the island and most importantly (in our opinion) GO DIVING in the tropical waters!
Out of all the diving offered on the East coast of Thailand, Koh Tao has the better of it. The island is famous for its laid back atmosphere on land. It is a cool paradise for those wanting to do their initial course or already certified divers continuing their education. It's not a lie, when said that Koh Tao is addictive. Backpackers usually end up staying for weeks. The reef has taken some damage from the tourism, but due to a massive effort to protect and rebuild the reefs, the corals and the fish life is doing really well. Koh Tao is now offering some really good diving for divers on all levels. Many dive sites are sheltered reefs with beautiful corals, good visibility, shallow depths and little to no current. Sites are reached in less than 20 minutes by boat. Deeper dive sites with pelagic marine life can be found a short 45 minute boat ride away. All year round lucky divers are encountering Whale sharks, Reef Sharks, Rays and Turtles.
Koh Tao in general is packed with different bays and beaches that are well worth visiting with your snorkeling gear. The island itself has a great size in terms of exploration, and it is easy to get around on a scooter. However, if you want a young and very vibrant vibe, Sairee beach is the place to be! The atmosphere is buzzing with hippie happy backpackers hanging out in the cafes, the beach bars and obviously on the beach itself… which is the longest and most popular beach on the island. (you will see why!)
On the day of arrival, the equipment will be fitted and packed for the
following day. The rest of the day is left for exploring on land and
settling in. The dive boat will depart at either 7:00 am or 9:00 am
the following day. Depending on what dives you are doing, and if you
are doing them in the morning, you will be informed in advance what
time the boat will be going out the following day.
The boat stays
out on sea for two dives and will be back for lunch. The boat will
depart at 13:00, returning around 16:30 after another two dives. It is
possible to do two morning dives or a combination of a morning and an
afternoon dive or just two afternoon dives.
A third dive or a night dive can be organized on location for an extra fee.
will be no refund on dives not used. Check-out of the accommodation
is at 10:00 on the last day. But luggage can be stored if you are
leaving on the afternoon or evening boat.
