Scuba Diving in Koh Samui

Diving Daytrips and PADI Dive Courses in Koh Samui

Diving in Koh Samui is yet another reason to visit this tropical wonderland! With clear blue waters, warm waters and amazing marine life, it's no surprise that the area is an extremely popular destination for both experienced divers and those wanting to take up the sport.

Short, accredited dive courses are readily available and prices are very reasonable compared to most countries. There's a wide range of dive shops offering all levels of instruction and if you look around, it's not difficult to find courses conducted in the language of your choice (except maybe Inuit).

In addition to the affordable prices, one of the obvious reasons dive courses are so popular here is the great locations from which they are conducted -- your instruction is usually right by the beach in the shallow, calm waters off Chaweng, Coral Cove or several other places around the island. The water visibility is anywhere between 3-30 metres. The currents around Samui itself are variable, but usually not too strong except on the west coast during the monsoon months.

Most diving for novices is only a short boat ride away, while world-class sites for more advanced divers can be found less than two hours away at places like Ang Thong National Marine Park and Sail Rock. Whether you're considering trying the sport for the first time or are a serious enthusiast, you won't be disappointed by either the quality or quantity of diving around Samui, aptly called a diver's paradise!
