Koh Samui's best trip for diving Koh Tao (Turtle Island): On three days per week, we go to Koh Tao for 2 dives. On this tour we prefer to go to quiet and easy dive and snorkeling sites, sheltered from wind and waves. We try to go for the best possible diving conditions so divers and snorkelers can enjoy reef life in an easy and relaxed manner. Therefore, this tour is perfect for snorkelers, diving students, beginners, discover scuba divers, as well as for experienced divers. A wide range of different dive sites with beautiful, colorful reefs and a large number of lovely fishes and reef creatures make Koh Tao the top diving area in the Gulf of Thailand.
Long dives in quiet bays sheltered from strong currents are typical for this Koh Tao tour. Popular dive sites are Japanese Gardens, Mango Bay, Hin Wong Bay, Lighthouse Bay or Ao Leuk. From the surface it’s usually easy to see the bottom so descents become an easy thing. The diving on this tour takes place at depths of 12 to 18 meters. If you’re at the beginning of you diving career or if you haven’t been diving for a long while, then this is the best tour to start with. Another advantage of this tour is that along with diving also snorkeling, discover scuba diving and diving courses can take place. Koh Tao itself is the ‘pearl’ of the Gulf of Thailand in terms of reef life. Stingrays, seahorses, sea snakes, moray eels, barracudas, nudibranchs, groupers, turtles and a seemingly infinite number of interesting reef fishes are inhabiting these reefs.
In the morning we will pick you up from the reception of your resort with our air-conditioned mini bus. Around 8 am or when all people have arrived, the catamaran “Mintra” will depart and start her journey from Koh Samui to Koh Tao. You have options to sit at the front in the bow of the boat, in our “saloon”, at the “flying bridge” or on the spacious sun deck. The catamaran offers you lots of space for sitting and moving around on the boat. Views from the boat are beautiful, so already the boat ride becomes a great experience. Important as well for the divers needs are two rest rooms and fresh water showers at the entrance.
When the tour starts your instructor or guide will introduce himself and give you a briefing prior to each dive. He will mention diving procedures and points of interest. You will find your diving equipment already prepared on the dive deck. Prior to the first dive you will do a weight check with us.
While you are staying on the boat little snacks (cake and fruit) will be available at all times. Also beverages like coffee, tea, hot chocolate, water and soft drinks will be available at all times. Especially you will have a good time enjoying a nice breakfast after our departure and the lunch, which is a lovely choice of different Thai dishes.
