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.

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.

Hi Kalle! Thank you for taking the time to review us. Yes it is true that once a year we have to take our boat for annual maintenance but even then we want to offer the best diving to our customers.

Been diving with these guys so many years that i don't even remember how long. Company has crown a bit but all in good way. They still do courses and dives in small groups so you get excellent teaching. Dives are operated "straight from the shop" so no need for extra rides to harbor. Safe and relaxed atmosphere overall.

We did the Open Water Diver course with the very professional and friendly instructor Ivan. He managed to guide the two of us (age 14 and 40) through the course in a very proffesional... More
