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 teaching PADI courses in Pattaya since 2006.

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

padi specialty coursesPattaya is the only place in Thailand where you can dive all year round as we don’t experience the unexpected torrential storms and large waves like you get from the April to November monsoon (rainy season) in the North or South of Thailand such as Phuket and Koh Tao. Pattaya is on the East of Thailand where it is sheltered in the Gulf of Thailand and has the least amount of rainfall in Thailand.

Pattaya offers great coral and wreck dives and is a great place to learn to dive or take a PADI course plus all theScuba Diving Pattaya Thailand best dive centers in Pattaya are PADI 5 Star IDC Centers which means they can teach all PADI courses from beginner level to Professional levels and above.

We 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.
