Special weekend dive trips in January 2022

Happy New Year Divers

With the New Year we are now into the best time to dive in Pattaya. This month we are putting on special trips for diving and snorkeling every Saturday/Sunday to our premier dive/snorkel sites at the Pattaya far islands.

We will be running these special trips with these timings so you don’t have to wake up extra early or get back at evening time which can be a problem with the divers coming down from Bangkok and elsewhere, so we have a plan to combat that problem.

We will be using a large boat to dive from at the Pattaya far islands but using our speedboat to shuttle everyone to the Pattaya near islands and then back to the dive center after diving to cut travel time, if it sounds confusing look at the schedule 🙂


8.45am meet at dive center

9.15am board our 12 metre speedboat to take you to our large dive boat at the Pattaya near islands

9.30am board large boat to the far islands 

10.20am 1st dive at one of our premier dive sites

11.20am finish dive 1

12pm Lunch

1pm Start dive 2

2pm finish dive 2 

2.45pm back to the near islands to board our 12 metre speedboat 

3.15pm back at dive center.

If you are interested in these Pattaya far island dive/snorkeling trips email us for more details

If we don’t have the numbers for these weekend trips we will still be having our usual speedboat trips from our 12 metre speedboats, start time 9.30am and back at 2.30pm-ish.

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

Scuba Diving Pattaya Thailand www.real-divers.comWe are the only dive center in Pattaya 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 board our 12 metre speedboat “Reef Seeker” 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 packed Bali Hai pier where you have to queue for covid temperature/name checks then walk about a mile to the dive boats.
