PADI Scuba Diving Courses Scuba diving Pattaya Thailand

Learn to scuba dive and continue your education on a PADI course

What makes our courses different to other Pattaya dive centers?

Real Divers are a British family run PADI 5 STAR IDC Dive Center which means we can teach beginner divers all the way to Instructor ratings. We are also the only dive center in Pattaya that run their trips from our 12-metre speedboats, which means no early starts and no late finishes. Weekend trips leave at 10am and we are back at 3pm-ish.

We board our speedboat from Jomtien beach which is only 50 metres from the dive center making things so much easier logistically than 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 boats.

We are also an Authentic TAT registered company (Tourism Authority of Thailand) which means we pass all safety regulations to take tourists diving, we also have a 100% safety record.

At Real Divers every student gets a rental dive computer on their PADI courses which enhances safety and a timing device is a mandatory piece of equipment for every student on a PADI course. You will learn more about dive computers and timing devices on the course and why each diver must have one on every dive as a diver without a dive computer or timing device could find themselves in trouble very easily, safe drivers are happy divers.

Our PADI Course Director and all our PADI Dive Instructors have over 15 years of teaching PADI courses in Pattaya from the PADI open water beginner level to professional levels such as PADI Divemaster and PADI Dive Instructor ratings.

We have also set up safety precautions against Covid 19 such as temperature checks at the dive center, hand sanitiser and face masks must be worn inside the dive shop. We are limiting dive trips to 7 people per trip so we can do social distancing on the boat. Under water there is obviously no problem as you are breathing the cleanest air you can breathe.

Our rental dive equipment has always been washed/cleaned in disinfectant (dettol) and fresh water but we are taking extra care procedures with mouth pieces and dive masks which will be washed in hot disinfectant water. We also have regulator mouth pieces for sale at 65B per mouth piece, which is the trade price we order them in at, we also have dive masks which start at 850B upwards.

One good thing we have noticed since all the hotels and tourist excursions to the islands have been closed is the sea looks very clear for this time of year. Last month there was even a whale shark spotted by fisherman at the Pattaya islands, which is obviously not the norm for Pattaya diving. The first few weeks will be very interesting to see what other new marine life has come to the Pattaya reefs and wrecks in this quiet period of time.

To 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 get to and fro from Bangkok, it will be good to see you all again.

If you are looking to come out for a days fun diving or do a PADI course email me at realdiverspattayathailand@gmail.com and we can start diving tomorrow.

Diving Pattaya trips

The laws of Covid 19 have stopped us running our usually dive trips from the past. We are no longer allowed to pick up/drop off customers from their hotels becuase of social distancing but we can arrange a private taxi for you. Because of the taxi situation and social distancing we are only diving at the Pattaya islands as the Samae san islands there is a 50 minute taxi ride and that goes against the social distancing law that has been enforced.

We are also not allowed to serve lunch on the boat or in the dive shop. We will supply drinking water on the boat and you are welcomed to bring snacks and other beverages, we do have ice buckets to keep them cold.

Sorry and i hope this doesn’t go on too long but this will stay like this until we are told differently by the Thai Government and City Hall.
