Diving Tour for certified divers from Koh Samui

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    You have a choice of half day trip to Sail Rock or a full day trip to Koh Tao and Chumporn. Most of the diving however is done around Koh Tao, as the variety of dive sites around the island allow us to take divers of all levels as well as non-diving customers that want to come along with their diving partner. Beginners and experienced divers can all be catered for at the Koh Tao sites.

    Depending on where you stay on the island, the free pick-up time will be around 6.45am and 7.25am. After introductions with your instructor, your speedboat will depart at 8am. During the day you can enjoy as many cold drinks as you like as well as lunch in between your 2 dives. The boat will return to Samui around 3pm and a taxi service will be ready to take you back to your resort at approximately 3:30pm.

    Your guide provides an experienced PADI professional who has extensive knowledge of the local dive sites, which will increase your level of safety and enjoyment.

    Cruise around in speedboats which boast the latest in technology for your added safety and comfort, the boats also have an onboard toilet and shower. You will be given honest advice on the latest reports regarding visibility and weather conditions and will organize your diving according to the reports.
