What makes our dive trip and courses different from other dive centers in Pattaya?
We offer speedboat dive trips and PADI courses for beginner levels all the way to Instructor ratings. We are the only dive center in Pattaya that run their trips from 12 meter speedboats, which means no early starts and no late finishes as we start our trips at 9.30am and finish at 3pm, (with about an hour on each dive).
Our trips also leave from Jomtien beach 50 metres from the dive center which makes life so much easier than navigating the busy Bali Hai Tourist pier especially in the high season months of September to May.
We’ve never had to use it before because we have a 100% safety record but you are also insured by the TAT guidelines on your dive courses as we are a TAT registered company (Tourism Authority of Thailand).
Also every student on our PADI courses get a rental dive computer which enhances safety and a timing device is a mandatory piece of equipment for every student not just their Instructor, you will learn more about dive computers and timing devices on the courses and why each diver must have one on the dive as a diver without a dive computer or timing device could find themselves in trouble very easily, safe divers are happy divers.
Pattaya has 12 tropical islands and over 30 plus dive sites to explore, both wreck and coral dives.
We are the only dive center in Pattaya that runs their dive trips from 12 metre speedboats and because of this our dive trips start at a reasonable time as we have less travelling time to do to and from the islands as the traditional larger dive boats in Pattaya.
Our dive trips leave the dive center at 9.30am and we are back after our dive/snorkelling activities about 2-3pm.
Our dive trips also leave from Jomtien beach which is 50 metres from the dive center, which makes life so much easier than having to navigate the busy Bali Hai tourist pier in Pattaya.
We run daily dive trips to the Pattaya Islands from our 12 metre twin engine Speedboats, we also run dive trips from a traditional Thai boat to the Samae San islands both locations have good wreck and coral sites.
Pattaya has a good selection of coral dive sites for certified divers and students such as Koh Rin, North Rock/South Rock, Koh Man Wichai and Koh klung badan. Koh Rin island has 2 pinnacles either side of her as well as the main island which are great coral dives. Koh Man Wichai has a wall and the famous “fingers” the reef known for looking like the shape of a giant hand. On the coral dives you will see tropical fish life such as Angelfish, Butterfly fish, schooling Fusiliers and Long Toms plus we have different types of stingrays and puffer fish to see on the dives. The Pattaya Near islands are renowned for large Hawk bill turtles especially on the Islands of Koh Larn, Koh Sak and Koh Krok, you see them on every dive.
Pattaya is also a great place to wreck dive or take a PADI course as we have 5 great shipwrecks like the HTMS Khram & HTMS Kood which rest at 30 metres, the HTMS Mataphon at 22 metres these are all ex US Navy vessels. In Samae san we have the most famous wreck in the Pattaya areas, the WWII Hardeep wreck which was sunk by the R.A.F in 1945. On the shipwrecks we have schooling barracuda, small sharks, morays and bat fish.
