Real Divers Are A British Family Run PADI 5 STAR IDC Dive Center 

Scuba diving Pattaya Thailand. We are a British family run PADI 5 STAR IDC center which has been running dive trips and PADI courses in Pattaya since 2006. We are the only dive center that run their dive trips from 12 metre speedboats which limits boat travel time to 12 minutes to the near islands and 25 minutes to the far islands, this allows us to have less travel time and more time underwater. It also means you don’t have to wake up so early and get back so late as our trips start at 9.30am to 3pm on week days and 10am to 3.30pm on weekends.

We are also running Special weekend trips which include wreck and night dives. These trips start at 1.30pm and we are back in Pattaya before 9pm.

On these trips we are also teaching the PADI Advanced course plus the PADI Night and Wreck dive specialty courses.

For any divers that would like to learn how to plan dives and lead dives we are running work shops on these topics throughout the month of October.


What makes our dive trips and PADI courses different from other dive centers in Pattaya?

Scuba Diving Pattaya ThailandWe board our speedboat from Jomtien beach which is only 50 metres from the dive center making things so much easier logistically unlike the other Pattaya dive centers that board their boats at the jam packed Bali Hai tourist pier where you have to walk about a mile to the dive boats.

Our PADI Course Director and Dive Instructors have over 15 years of teaching PADI courses in Pattaya. We have taught thousands of divers from the PADI open water diver beginner level to professional levels such as PADI Divemaster and PADI Dive Instructor ratings. We also have a lot of fun specialty courses such as dive propulsion vehicles, side mount diving, wreck, deep specs and a good camera system for photography and videography.

If you are looking to change your life style and are interested in becoming a dive professional we do have scuba a diving internship which take you from what ever level of diver you are to the ultimate professional ratings of PADI Divemaster, PADI Dive Instructor ratings and above.

We are also an Authentic TAT registered company (Tourism Authority of Thailand) which means we pass and follow all the safety rules to be able to take tourists scuba diving, we also have a 100% safety record in diving.

Scuba Diving Pattaya Thailand www.real-divers.comEvery student on our PADI courses gets a full set of rental equipment and also a rental dive computer to dive with which enhances safety and fun. A timing device is a mandatory piece of equipment for every student on a PADI course. You will learn more about dive computers on the PADI courses and why each diver must have one.

Our week day dive trips start at 9.30am and we are usually back after the dive activities at 3pm. For our local and Bangkok divers our weekend trips are now leaving at 10am from Jomtien beach and we are usually back at 3pm-ish. This should give you plenty of time to travel to and fro from Bangkok and it will be nice to see you all again. 

The diving industry in Pattaya is now open 5th June so we have been making a few changes to our dive trips so we can fall in line with the new Covid 19 rules and law.

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 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 pufferfish to see on the dives.

   PADI Advanced course

The Pattaya Near islands are renowned for large Hawkbill 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 Scuba Diving Pattaya ThailandKhram & HTMS Kood which rest at 30 metres plus the HTMS Mataphon at 22 metres these all ex-US Navy vessels. The Pattaya wrecks were all scuttled to make artificial reefs and now there is so much fish life on all the wrecks. Schooling barracuda, batfish, rays and small sharks are seen on the dives.

You do need to be an Advanced diver to dive the wrecks, if you are an Open water diver and want to dive the wrecks we have a special price reduction for the PADI Advanced course which only take two days to comlete where you get to dive the wrecks.

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 batfish as well as loads of smaller marine life.
