Koh Tao Dive Courses

Getting ready to go scuba diving in Koh Tao? Koh Tao is a popular destination for scuba divers. Travelers from all over the world visit Koh Tao (Turtle Island) in Thailand to take their first steps in the underwater world.

And it is easy to know why: the Koh Tao dive courses are cheap, the dive sites are abundant and close by.  The island is beautiful and the lifestyle is very comfortable. And of course, we hope you choose Mojo Divers for your diving course.

Koh Tao Dive Courses – PADI or SSI?

There are more than 50 scuba diving training agencies, but in Koh Tao, the choice almost always comes down to two: PADI or SSI (Scuba Schools International). Each organization has developed its own teaching materials, sets its own work method and awards its own certifications. But the differences between Padi and SSI are minimal but you can read about the differences in the above link.

No matter what diving certification card you leave Koh Tao with, you’ll be using the same equipment, see the same fish, and be able to dive at the same sites. Certifications are interchangeable and recognized worldwide. So your next course could be a Padi one but we hope you will stick with SSI.

With SSI everything is now digital with the SSI app.  No need to worry about forgetting your plastic diving card or paper logbook now.  Everything is stored on your phone from certifications, dive logs, documents etc. And can easily accessed via the SSI website.

No matter which diving organization you choose to certify with, the most important factors in the quality of your diving course will be your dive school and your dive instructor.
