Discover scuba diving (first time divers)


Discover scuba diving Pattaya with Real Divers a PADI 5 Star IDC Center

Starting March 1st 2018 come diving with us and we will give you a Real Divers tee-shirt  in the price. (Click here)

Come with us and Discover scuba diving the fun and easy way.

No more jumping into deep water with heavy equipment, 200 metre long swims to the beach, you are tired and haven’t even been under the water yet.

This is the way most dive centers around the world run their Discover scuba diving trips. The large dive boats that most dive centers use in Pattaya can not get to shallow water and have to moor away from the coral reefs so not to damage them, which means long swims in full equipment to the shallows at the beach bays.


At Real Divers you can enjoy this first time scuba experience more because our 12 metre speedboat “Reef Seeker” can get right up close to the beach in water you can stand up in. We put our equipment on in shallow water and then get down to why we are here “breathing underwater and having fun diving on a coral reef”

Our typical PADI Discover scuba diving Pattaya trip starts with an pick up at your hotel. 

Our trips start at 10am and we are usually back at 3pm, our speedboats also leave and return at Jomtien beach instead of the normal Bali Hai port which has it’s masses of tourists and long walks and climbing over boats that the other dive centers do.

From Jomtien beach it takes 15 minutes to get to the Pattaya near and 25 minutes to the far coral islands instead of an hour or two like the larger chartered dive boats we use for our certified diver customers.


Your Discover scuba diving day.

Once at the island the Instructor will give you an introduction to scuba briefing and also get you familiar with the equipment and some techniques used for diving.

The Instructors and Divemasters will help you don the equipment in shallow water that you can stand up in and then it’s time for your first exhilarating breaths underwater, which is easy and a lot less difficult than you might think.

The Instructor will show you some skills and techniques such as mask clearing, finning and how to swim underwater.

We start the first dive in water you can stand up and then gradually get deeper, this dive usually takes 45 minutes to an hour and there’s a lot of fish life around so plenty to look at and we can take some underwater photo’s of you.

After the first dive we will snorkel, have a snack or relax on the boat or island.

Then the 2nd reef dive: Under the close guidance of PADI Instructors and PADI Divemasters we will take you on a shallow coral reef dive (maximum depth 12 metres) but generally diving at the 5 t0 7 metre mark where most of the best fish life is.

This dive usually lasts for 45 minutes to an hour. You will see colourful tropical fish-life like Angel fish, marine life such as rays and puffer fish as you explore the coral reef also a great chance of seeing large Hawkbill Turtles as we see them on virtually every dive.

Learn to relax and breathe in water that you can stand up in, it’s a lot of fun.

We are usually back at the dive center at 3pm where we have a hot Thai meal and fruit waiting for us. We will also issue you with your PADI Discover scuba diving certificate of completion and our taxi will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.

From mine and my Instructors experience and points of view over the last decade+ we think we have made the easiest and most enjoyable discover scuba diving program in Pattaya.

If you enjoyed this experience program and want to become a certified PADI Open water diver or PADI Scuba diver, the PADI Discover scuba diving program does count towards your PADI Open water certification, you can just carry on into the course the next day, ask your Instructor.

This is Koh Man Wichai one of Pattaya’s islands where Turtles are seen on virtually every dive.
