Welcome to Real Divers a British Family owned PADI 5 Star IDC Center in Jomtien, Pattaya. We offer a full range of diver training courses from learning to scuba dive "PADI Open Water Diver" right up to the professional levels of Divemaster, PADI Instructor and higher. Real Divers run daily dive and snorkelling trips to the Pattaya and Samae San coral Islands. We also have some fun PADI specialties such as Dive Propulsion Vehicles, Full Face Masks, Videography/Photography and Sidemount diving. As Pattaya is the most northerly dive destination and is not subject to the monsoon seasons that can affect locations in the south that make diving conditions impossible. In Pattaya we can offer all year round diving, we do have a rainy season, but we don't get the fierce tropical storms that can strike without warning in the south. Amongst Pattaya's dive attractions are the coral reefs at the Pattaya/Samae san islands and numerous shipwrecks, making Pattaya the wreck diving capital of Thailand.

For serious diving enthusiasts Real Divers can arrange trips with our partner liveaboard dive company in the South of Thailand for multi-day livaboard trips to the Similan Islands. The diving on the liveaboard trips are rated as some of the best in the world but are seasonal.

Does your job and life lack fun and adventure? Then why not join one of our life changing tailor- made courses which can take you from a beginner diver to become a PADI professional DiveMaster in 2 to 3 months and to scuba instructor in just six months.

PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre

Real Divers is Pattaya's only family-run British PADI 5 Star IDC dive centre. Dave Chandler (now retired) started it all over 20 years ago when he came to Pattaya on holiday and decided to learn to dive. He enjoyed it so much that he sold his publishing company, retired early and emigrated to Thailand. Later, sons Neil and Peter, followed him out from England and he trained them to become PADI instructors.
