About Sea Gypsy Divers

With an office in Ao Nang and shop in a quiet village nearby, we offer all PADI courses, fun diving, and snorkeling packages. We make use of our on-site swimming pool for all training courses. Our equipment is new as of September 2017 and offered free with every course or fun dive. Our experienced PADI Instructors teach with patience to calm the nerves of any first-timer. For certified divers, dive trips depart daily to either Koh Phi Phi islands or Ao Nang local islands.
