A PADI certified instructor conducting a discover scuba diving in the first open water dive in Koh Tao

Discover Scuba Diving

A one day experience for anyone who would like to explore the world beneath the ocean. Just prepare your body and mind, no prior experience required!


When you are short on time but scuba diving sounds interesting to you. We offer a discover scuba diving experience in just 1 day. You will get to learn the basics of scuba diving and also the first-time feeling of breathing underwater.

First, get comfortable with our PADI Professional Instructors who will guide you through every step of the day. Learn the basics of Scuba Diving in our beautiful beachfront dive center.

Now it is your chance to explore and experience the wonders of the coral reef and aquatic life. Your instructor will supervise you 100% of the time and will even offer guidance on how to adjust your diving to be more comfortable.

After the dive, you will return to the boat to relax and recharge with onboard refreshments: fresh fruit, water, and hot drinks. Then it is just a short ride to the next dive site where you will get the opportunity to swim around a larger reef, home to butterfly fish, angel fish, and if you’re very lucky one of our local Koh Tao turtles!

If you feel addicted to scuba diving, you can always choose to pursue our PADI Open Water course for the certification which will allow you to dive with your buddy at any dive site in the world.
