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.

We dove with Ko tao divers during our stay in Koh Tao in January 2016. A very professional dive shop with relaxed but safety orientated atmosphere . Would definitely dive with them again.

I did my TDI Sidemount, Advanced Nitrox, Decompression Procedures and Extended Range with Ivan. At the time it was the cheapest option and came recommended so it was a no-brainer. I couldn't be happier about the training I received. I also did around 20 fun dives with KTD. Visibility in November wasn't the greatest but I had lots of fun... More

Ideal for new divers trying to find their flippers. I booked last minute but they still Managed to find an instructor. There was no one else on the course, so I got a one on one session which was amazing. They explained everything thoroughly and safely. It was my first dive, but I was filled with confidence by my instructor.... More

Diving with Koh Tao divers was a pleasure. The experience starts with their staff being so attentive and good at hospitality. I had a busy schedule and they accommodated my dives and made me feel very welcome. This is something you will never get in many of the other diving schools in Koh Tao. It was a much smaller group...

Flexible and extremely friendly service. Our family had absolutely great time with the private snorkelling guide Johanna. She showed us excellent snorkelling sites and gave extra attention to children by replacing broken snorkel with her own gear. Our youngest one learnt to trust herself as a swimmer in the ocean. Highly recommended!

I did OWD in Koh Tao divers a.k.a. KTD. The KTD is relatively small diving school in Koh Tao and its' actually good thing. In KTD they keep the group sizes small, the biggest group size is 4 persons I believe. In my opinion, all the equipments they had were good and they had a good team spirit. All the... More

My instructor was Ants. I was one of three in my training class. Everything was very personalized and no one was left behind in training. As a student you are able to bond with your classmates and all instructors at Koh Tao Divers. I would definitely recommend over the other 60 schools here. Koh Tao Divers cares about the experience,... More

The instructors are professionals & groups - in specialty courses and in fundiving - are small. And the prices are good. You really get personal advice & training. Very good shop location.
