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.

Excellent diving center, good quality equipment and Paulina was a brilliant instructor, helping both my partner and I ease back into feeling comfortable under the water after a year off diving.

My partner and I tried scuba for my first time and his 2nd. We done the try scuba activity and completed 2 dives for 3000 baht each. The activity was one of the highlights of our whole trip in Thailand! I would highly recommend trying it if you are like me and have no experience. The safety and basic training... More

Thank you Julie for leaving us this lovely review. We are very happy to hear that you day diving was one of the highlights of your trip! The good news is that about 71% of the Earth is covered in water, so there is plenty more to discover. Hope to see you again and hear from your underwater adventures. More

Went in for OWD, was so pleased with the teaching and dive sites I ended up doing deep spec and nitrox courses aswell, and spending over 1000minutes under water 🙈. Warm atmosphere and highly talented and experienced teacher (Tom) made my first diving experiences ones to remember and got me excited to do it again and again.. I can warmly... More

My friend and I did a open water diver course with Koh Tao Divers~ our diving instructor Eve was very professional and patient and always made us feel secured under water~ as a new swimmer, I was always reluctant to try new skills, but Eve was always there to help. Due to my heavy cold, I felt very weak and... More

Did my open water a few years back with KTD after seeing their great reviews. Then due to an injury I was unable to dive for a while. Came back to Koh Tao and looked at a few other dive schools to do my refresher with but decided to stick with KTD. They weren't the cheapest option but you pay... More

Hi Snowges, We really appreciate your effort to write this detailed review. It is great to hear that you have truly enjoyed your both visits. Mass production of divers is not the way we believe diving should be done and we take pride of not cutting corners with the tank fills just to get more of them filled on the... More

Easy to find, friendly staff and poor coffee but this outlines the whole Koh Tao! I joined to an open water basic course. Because of low season I was alone with my instructor (Eve Starck). I enjoyed this "private" course which gave me a lot of information and know-how on diving. Starck was a strict but respectful instructor as it... More

My partner and I did the discover scuba diving which consists of two mini trial dives if you haven't done it before (which we hadn't). I was really anxious about diving but our instructor, Lorenzo, was really patient and went over everything as many times as we needed. He stuck close by us the whole time continually checking that we... More

I had an nice trydive with Koh Tao Divers. 2.500 baht for two dives. I was even able to get an instructor, Ivan, who is Danish like me. English is not a problem! I chose Koh Tao Divers because their prices were competitive without compromising on security. The company policy is a max of four students pr. instructor. If you... More

I did my Open water and Advanced at Koh Tao Divers and I really enjoyed it. Especially doing all the dives with Froggy, my dive instructor, was the best experience so far. It was a very small group and I always felt save. He was very patient with us, thanks Froggy! The school is located at the main beach Sairee... More

Me and by brother (Austria) have been diving just once before we went to Koh Tao. We decided to perform a Try-Dive. Koh Tao Divers offer extremely warm and friendly employees, who speak English perfectly. We immediately felt we're at the right place. Our diving coach (Froggy) explained the most important tricks, before we went to a bay in the... More
