About Ocean Republic Diving
Ocean Republic is the only Sea Shepherd dive school on the island. This means that you will be receiving all the necessary info not to harm the marine environment when you dive. We also organize a weekly beach or reef cleanup on Friday morning and you can learn how to restore coral reefs in our Sea Shepherd Dive coral propagation workshop and course. We are right next to Lomprayah pier where you arrive. It is a nice place to drop your backpack after a long trip, have some free coffee, tea, use the wifi and pick the brain of our great crew of people that can give you advice on whatever you need on koh tao (food, motorbike rental, accommodation, snorkeling spots…)

The answer is yes, but even we offer the posibility of joining the dive boat for snorkeling we recommend specialized companies offering a more specific service for non divers.
