ONE ON ONE TUITION
Avoid The Crowds
Koh Tao, or in Thai ‘Turtle Island’, has always drawn sea-loving adventurers due to its mystical remote offshore location and reputation for an abundant, rich marine life. During the early days, this ex-penal colony outpost quickly became a hippie haven where local villagers survived on a subsistence of fishing and income from selling coconuts to the mainland.
I grew up spending endless summers with my mother, father and sister, together discovering this magical underwater realm as a family, all sharing the thought that this was a kind of underwater ‘Jurassic Park’ – priceless memories etched and forever treasured.
To this day, Koh Tao is still able to capture visitors’ imagination – with a beautiful granite rock shoreline, Thai fishing village small-island feel, turquoise blue warm waters, vibrant offshore underwater pinnacles populated with plentiful pelagic fish and the exciting opportunity of an encounter with a majestic whale shark.
Sea life has been and will always be an integral part of Koh Tao. At Reef Dive Centre, we hope our team of enthusiasts can showcase what it is that we love for you all to experience.
This is your reef…
Fun Diving - No Lessons Just Exploring
Koh Tao is known for its excellent year round diving conditions; currents are rare and we often have 30-metres of visibility or more! Besides the abundance of multi-coloured reef fish - you can expect to see barracudas, giant groupers, feeding travelys, whalesharks and if you’re lucky, perhaps even sail fish. Each day two boats go out to explore the waters. We make two dives on our morning boat, and two in the afternoon. Want to see what our ocean looks like when the sun is gone? Then join us on a night dive.
Haadtien Beach Resort
The Haad Tien Beach Resort is a boutique destination set in a stunning backdrop of beachfront panoramas, featuring its own 380 metre secluded beach situated at the southern tip of Koh Tao. The property contains 70 private villas thoughtfully spaced amongst over 45 acres of land, which features a stunning natural bay, perfect for swimming and snorkeling.
The Haad Tien has a wide variety of swimming pools scattered across the resort, including Reef Dive Centre's dedicated SCUBA training pool. This beautiful black granite infinity pool has been designed not only to be the perfect training area for all your SCUBA diving needs, but also affords wonderful views across the beach club resort and out to the golden sands of Tien Og.
The Dive Centre
In creating the perfect diving centre, it is vitally important to make sure you have a top quality home for all your equipment and compressors. Our equipment room has been designed to make sure our top grade equipment remains the same pristine condition as the day we bought it. All our equipment is numbered and tracked to help us ensure you keep the same set of equipment throughout your stay without sacrificing cleaning and drying.
