There are literally tons of dive shops in Koh Tao but from what I've heard, most dive shops offer fun dives in large groups which gave us a reason to choose New Heaven; they have relatively smaller dive groups. This allows us to feel safer and I believe that's the most important aspect of diving. All in all, I would... More

I experienced 6 "fun dives" with that diving center. Overall good experience, despite seasonal low water visibility. The gears are maintained , however the best and new gears are given to the diving trainees, clearly not for fun divers. Hence it's maybe a good idea to bring your own mask and wetsuit for instance. The dive masters have different personalities,... More

I have just completed my Open Water with New Heaven Dive School. I have to say deciding which Dive School to go to is a very difficult decision with so many schools across the Island, each with pros and cons and very little difference in price. I decided that I wanted to stay South of the Island as it was... More

But the Bungalow was grubby.. The Mosquito Net had many holes which was disturbing because of the Insects and the Cockroaches in the Night, the door/window... More

Had an incredible time at New Heaven Dive school doing my open water course, advanced open water course and a month of conservation diving. All of the dive instructors and conservation staff are super knowledgeable as well as super friendly. Learning about the plight of Thailand’s reef ecosystems was really great, but what was even better was being able to... More

I stayed there 3 months as an intern and it changed my perception of the marine world and what is possible to achieve with a professional and united team. It's also a great way to improve his/her diving skill while doing something meaningful. I can just recommend to anyone to take part in this experience.

My time with the New Heaven Reef Conservation team was incredibly fascinating & influential to me. I was moved by the team members' warmth, enthusiasm & attentiveness - even though I was only with them for 1 week, I felt that full care was given toward helping me gain many new skills. They sincerely include you as a team member,... More

Starting last February I went to Koh Tao for 5 weeks. The first week I got my Open Water and Advanced Open Water certificate, after that I joined New Heaven's Marine Conservation Project.
