Koh Tao is the leading place for PADI Open Water Course certifications in the world with its fantastic diving and cheap PADI courses.
This amazing island has over twenty local dive sites, wreck dives and probably the most whale shark sightings anywhere in Thailand!

The social scene is fantastic with our beach bar, full moon BBQ’s, dive movies, and beautiful sunsets!

Day 1 – Spend the day in the classroom learning the theory section of the course. This is where you learn the practical side of diving.
Day 2 – Now you are ready to get in the pool and practice the skills you learned about the day before. It is a full day in the pool with your instructor.
