All diving gear that is of great quality and properly maintained is provided on site prior to each dive. You will be then taking to the best dive sites around the island on They a spacious and equipped with all amenities 3-stored boat. We have different dive sites scheduled for each day and we also do night dives every other day (This is something you should absolutely try in case you’re seeking a little more of a thrill!). We also go to the Sail Rock dives site twice a week, when you will also have breakfast and lunch included in the price. There is no greater feeling than diving with a team

Overview
Our Open Water experience will take your breath away. Literally speaking you'll be breathing from a tank, so you'll be able to breath, just not the way you’re used to. One of our knowledgeable staff will welcome you into our cozy dive school on the paradise island of Koh Tao. You'll get your measurements taken and dressed up with our brand new equipment to ensure you are as comfortable as can possible. The Open Water is a 4-day course and it includes 1 pool session and 4 dives. Your instructor will show you educational videos, take you through an extensive safety briefing and tell you the do's and dont's of diving, as well as explain a little bit about what to expect. The day after you have completed your pool session, you will be whisked off to our state of the art dive boat (showers, sun deck, lots of space, refreshments, all included in the price) where you'll make the trip to one of the many dive sites Koh Tao has to offer.
