Koh Tao Dive Sites

Koh Tao Dive Sites

Koh Tao diving is always possible here.  We are a small island that is literally surrounded by dive sites. Most importantly, we have a year-long dive season we can dive 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year, Koh Tao always has dive sites for you. In addition, Koh Tao dive sites have a mix of shallow, sheltered bays, artificial reefs, swim-throughs, caves, huge pinnacles, deep sites, and even a wreck or two to explore.  Consequently, we have a dive site to suit everyone. In fact, we go out twice per day and visit two dive sites each time and diving packages are available.

Why Choose Diving on Koh Tao?

Uniquely, this great variety of dive sites around Koh Ta0 and the year-long diving season makes it an ideal place for getting your diving certification. From beginner-level courses like try scuba diving and open water courses to the professional level of training for divemasters and instructors. The majority of the dive sites do not take much time to travel to so it’s easy to make 4 dives in one day and make it back in time to watch the sunset.  Which is why Koh Tao has great diving prices.

Notably, there were at least 84 individual turtles that have been photographed here, but that is not why it’s called turtle island. You have a good chance of seeing turtles in the inappropriately named Shark Bay.

What Makes Koh Tao Diving So Special?

In this paragraph, I will explain why you should choose Koh Tao for diving. Firstly, apart from the occasional tropical storm, the weather conditions and accessibility of Koh Tao dive sites can provide excellent conditions for learning to scuba dive. Secondly, the water temperature rarely drops below 27C meaning that only thin wetsuits are needed. Moreover, most of the time you don’t need anything but swimwear.  Making the learning process more comfortable. Finally, there are minimal currents making it safe to learn to dive without struggling.  In conclusion, these conditions make it easy and safe to learn how to dive here and go fun diving, there is always something new to see and makes for great fun.
