About

 

Who we are

We are a team of dive instructors and have been diving in the Andaman Sea for many years. Literally we've made hundreds to thousands of dives at the Surin Islands and at Richelieu Rock.

Actually we've been diving over years the West Coast of Thailand all the way down from dive sites south of Phuket up to the Mergui Archipelago in Myanmar.

We still love to dive every single day and would be more than happy to show you around for a day at the Surin National Marine Park.

What We Do

We make fun dives with divers of all levels, though joining a Refresher Dive is a prerequisite if you haven't been diving in the latest 6 months.

All dives are preceeded by a dive briefing. Accompanying maps of the dive sites will give you a better idea of the planned dive.

Our maximum dive depth is 35m and all dives are limited to 45 minutes. Safety rules are implemented during each dive and Day Trip.

If you haven't been diving within the latest 6 months, we ask you out of safety reasons, to join a Refresher Dive. This can be the first dive of the day or a dive prior to the Day Trip.

Refresher Dives are given in easy shallow waters. Once you've completed the Refresher Dive, you'll feel comfortable again to join the next fun dive of the day.

Curious if you'd like diving? During our Day Trips we can make a Discover Scuba Dive with you!

During the Discover Scuba Diving program, we'll first give you an introduction about diving and how to use dive equipment.

Then it's time for going underwater: in very shallow waters, we'll take you on a few meters depth to give you an impression how it feels to be a diver underwater.

During our Day Trips we can also teach you the PADI Open Water Course or the PADI Advanced Open Water Course. You have to join at least 2 Day Trips in order to complete the course.

You can also join a PADI Course (including the PADI Rescue Course and the PADI Divemaster Course during a liveaboard dive tour.

Discover the Andaman Sea while snorkeling!

With your included snorkel equipment (mask/snorkel and fins), you'll be snorkeling at the shallow reefs of the Surin Islands.
