We offer Diving trips and Courses on Koh Chang including a collection and return service from resorts on the island. Snorkelers may join the dive trips.
We have decades of experience in teaching recreational Scuba Diving, with many of those years on the island of Koh Chang.
Our aim is to provide the highest possible standards of scuba training as well as offering professional guides to certified divers on the sites found in the group of islands around Koh Chang.
Scuba diving education is delivered to the standards set by the agency issuing the diving certificate. Provided the minimum standards are met, then certification is completed.
Our years of experience has demonstrated that many divers who reach those minimum standards then ‘slip back’ by the time they go diving again.
We believe it is much better to exceed the minimum standards for certification. Hence ‘The theory is important but it is time in the water is that makes the diver’. All our courses guarantee more time in the water than those minimum standards, helped by reducing the maximum number of students per instructor.
Our guided dives are led by Divemasters/Instructors with groups of no more than 4 divers. Care is taken to have divers of similar experience in each group.
Many certified divers feel they have ‘slipped back’ from the standards they achieved on certification. For those divers we can provide a free refresher programme.
When considering who to choose for your diving education, please check out our specifications for the course you are choosing.

We have chosen the Whaleshark as our emblem because the world’s largest fish is now being seen in waters around Koh Chang more often than ever before. During the high season 2016-2017, there were more sightings of this species than there were of the Hawksbill turtles we regularly see. More significant, perhaps, is that there have been sightings of them in June and July 2017, low season, around both the National Marine Park and the HTMS Chang shipwreck. There are no guarantees of seeing them each time we go out because, of course, we are always in their hands, sorry, fins.
