Ko Tao Diving

Ko Tao is without doubt one of Thailand’s best places to dive. From the tranquil splendour of shallow-water coral gardens to a close encounter with a Whale Shark, Ko Tao offers a diving adventure for divers of all experience-levels. The island has more than 20 dive sites, the majority of them close-by (less than 20 minutes). Divers can enjoy crystal clear water almost all-year-round, with visibility often exceeding 30 meters. Our 10-dive package, including 8 day dives and 2 night dives, is designed to give you a good taste of the varied diving on offer. Read more
