Bangkok, Pattaya Divers
Take advantage of the situation if you have the time off why not learn to become a diver
Welcome to Real Divers, we are a British family run dive center located on Jomtien beach road 10 minutes drive from Pattaya and 15 minutes speedboat ride to the dive sites.
With all the entertainment places closing down in Thailand because of the corona virus some people are finding out they have a bit of extra time on their hands. The Songkran water festival looks destined to be cancelled (which some people will love and some people will hate) so why not get wet and go diving over the Songkran period.
Over the years we have seen the problems that the Bangkok divers have had diving in Pattaya, mostly because of the early start times of the Pattaya dive centers.
We have been trying to make it easier for the local Bangkok, Pattaya Divers by changing this!. We have a 12 metre dual engine speedboat and are now starting our weekend dive trips at 10am and we are back after the dive activities at 4pm-ish because of less boat travel time.
Getting to Pattaya
Bangkok to Pattaya generally takes 1hr 30min taxi ride or 2hr 30 min by bus depending on where you are in Bangkok. Buses run every hour from Bangkok to Pattaya and taxi’s become cheaper once you know a few of our other Bangkok customers where you can share a taxi.
If you don’t like earlier starts some of our customers come down the night before especially as there are plenty of hotels, hostels and guest houses close to the dive center. The prices start from 500B per day upwards, if you need help finding accommodation just ask us.
Our speedboat leaves at 10am from Jomtien beach 50 metres from the dive center making it easier logistically than having to navigate the busy Bali Hai packed tourist pier in Pattaya.
Pattaya coral and wreck dive sites
The speedboat trips are great for beginner divers like Discover scuba diving Pattaya (first time divers) and open water students as we can get close to shallow water meaning no long surface swims. On the coral reef dive sites you will see angel fish, butterfly fish, puffer fish, rays and a large Hawkbill turtles also loads of smaller fish life as you explore the reef.
You do need to be an advanced diver to dive the shipwrecks as they are all deep dives. HTMS Khram, HTMS Kud and the HTMS Mataphon are all ex-US Navy vessels that were scuttled at the depths of 22m to 30m. On the wreck dives you can see schooling barracuda, rays, bat fish, sweet lips and small bamboo sharks plus scorpian fish, nudibranch and loads more. If you are not an Advanced diver the Advanced course takes only two days to complete and you get to dive the wrecks on the course. We have a price reduction on our special promotion for the Advanced course
