Scuba diving Pattaya Thailand. Real Divers are a British family run PADI 5 STAR IDC Dive Center located in Jomtien, Pattaya.
Scuba diving Pattaya Thailand. It’s now the best time of the year to dive the wrecks and coral dive sites at the Pattaya and Samae san Islands (October to May). Pattaya and Samae san has over 20 tropical islands and over 40 different dive sites both wreck and coral.
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 4 great shipwrecks, the HTMS Khram & HTMS Kood which rest at 30 metres plus the HTMS Mataphon at 22 metres these are all ex US Navy vessels.
We also run dive trips from a traditional Thai island hopper boat to the Samae San islands which offer good wreck and coral sites. In Samae san we have the most famous wreck in the Pattaya areas, the WWII Hardeep wreck which was sunk by RAF in 1945. On the shipwreck we have schooling barracuda, small sharks, rays and bat fish as well as loads of smaller marinelife.
What makes our dive trip and PADI courses different from other dive centers in Pattaya?
We are a PADI 5 STAR IDC Center and offer speedboat dive trips for certified divers and PADI courses from beginner levels all the way to PADI 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 dive 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 PADI dive courses as we are an Authentic TAT registered company (Tourism Authority of Thailand).
Also every student on our PADI courses get a rental dive computer which enhances safety and fun as a timing device is a mandatory piece of equipment for every student on a PADI course 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.
