Koh Tao
Learning to dive is a fantastic experience in so many ways. Besides the obvious of being weightless in the water, while experiencing the magical wonders of a tropical coral reef the personal development that happens during the course is highly valuable. With a professional dive instructor, you will slowly push your own borders to become confident with your dive equipment and in the water. Your goal is to breathe freely, and move effortlessly in the ocean. Once you've got it down, it is a rather spectacular and liberating feeling.

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!)
The PADI Open Water Diver course is the most popular diving certificate worldwide. After completing this 3-4 day course you are certified to dive to 18m independently with a buddy. The course consists of five modules of learning. You study via a self-study workbook or offline-app, completing  knowledge reviews for each chapter. This process is complemented by videos accompanying each chapter to reinforce what you have learned. The instructor reviews everything with you to ensure that you have fully understood everything. The practical learning consists of confined water sessions and four open water dives. Dive one and two are conducted at a depth of maximum 12m and dive three and four are conducted at a maximum depth of 18m. The final stage of the PADI Open Water course is an exam, which is a multiple choice exam covering all that you have learnt. Remember that the course is performance based and not time based. The course generally takes 3 to 4 days, with the theoretical, the confined water and the open water sessions successfully passed.

Itinerary - 6 days and 5 nights - Open Water Course + 2 dives
The PADI Open Water Course is performance based. That means you have to understand and pass the theory and perform the in-water skills correctly and with ease. Therefore, the itinerary can vary slightly from course to course. The course will take 3 to 4 days depending on the students enrolled. To give you an idea of what to expect, see the itinerary below

Both the dorm accommodation and the private bungalows are right next to the dive center, and in the middle of Sairee beach.
Walk out of your room, and within 15 seconds of walking (really slowly) you will be standing on the beach, next to the dive center.

The dorm rooms are just above the walking street of Sairee beach. You can look down at the dive center and the beach.
The bungalows are a little more drawn back, and provide a calmer and more private setting for your sleep.

The dorm rooms are fitted with 3 bunkbeds, a balcony and a private bathroom with hot water shower. The dorm rooms are fan only, (which is preferred by many divers), but for an extra fee (paid locally), you can upgrade the dorm to A/C. We try to keep boy and girl rooms seperate, but we can't guarantee that you will not be in a mixed dorm.

The private bungalows come standard with the option of both A/C and a fan. Private bathroom with a hot shower and a small porch.

Lokaal vervoer

The easiest way to get to Koh Tao from Bangkok, is to take either the bus or the train down South to connect with the Lomprayah High Speed Catamaran in Chumphon, for a 1,5 hour crossing to Koh Tao.
If travelling down to Koh Tao in the high seasons or around a full moon party it's always a good idea to book your bus ticket in advance!
Your travel agency can help you reserve and book your ticket.

Regardless of where you are in Thailand, your travel agency can get you to Koh Tao on the fastest and most convenient way.

To be picked up at the pier on Koh Tao, contact your dive center with your ferry information. You will find the contact details for the dive center, on your voucher.
