Description: Koh Tao Divers was established more than 27 years ago as the first dive...
Koh Tao Divers was established more than 27 years ago as the first dive center on Koh Tao. Today as a modern but still small dive center, we think that diving is a way to explore the underwater world and not a group sport. Our experienced and professional dive team will teach you all there is in diving and take you to dive sites you choose, in small groups and with a personal touch. What ever it is that does it for you in this tropical paradise, we've got it, and it all comes with a smile. Languages available: English, Finnish, Danish, Thai, Italian and many more on request. We offer courses from absolute beginner all the way to the most advanced forms of technical diving as well as professional courses for divers looking to have a career in diving.

I had an amazing time with Koh Tao Divers. I did the open water diver course which ended up being a total of 5 dives. It was a small group of students, only two of us, which is what I wanted. The instructor was kind, patient and very clear with advice and instructions. Not only was the course itself fantastic... More

We had two awesome fun dives with Koh Tao Divers. They were professional from the very beginning. Our instructor Jenni was lovely and made us feel super comfortable. On our first dive we went to South west pinnacle and were lucky enough to see 3 whale sharks. It was fantastic and Jenni really made us enjoy it! The boat was... More

Koh Tao Divers is a great scuba shop with very professional and friendly staff. It's easy to go diving with them, the shop is just next to the beach where to boat takes you diving. The atmosphere was very relaxed, yet professional.

We never dove before, so we did not know what to expect. Our instructor was very good and really took great care of us. Since we learned quite quick, we had the opportunity to dive for more than an hour in our first dive! I would definitely recommend Ko Tao divers, since they're also cheaper than the other ones we...

Two days back we got our open water degree. After a short course of only 4 days in total, which we could arrange sort of to our own liking and scheduling. We had a very cool and relaxed dinner instructor named Anttoni, which did the whole course in English for us, and took his time to make us comfortable with... More

I did my raid explorer 30 course here in April, and it was a great experience. The shop is well organised, and all of the staff were happy to answer questions of any kind. A special thanks to Antti which is an excellent instructor. He really improved my diving skills, and made it a fun experience.
