    Destination

    The vast, cobalt blue waters of the Gulf of Thailand hide beneath them an undiscovered world of corals, shipwrecks and fishes. On this scuba diving day trip in Pattaya, you'll seek to learn the sport of scuba diving while exploring the beauty of this undiscovered world. You'll complete two open water dives at two of the twenty dive sites located around the far islands. These dive sites, featuring a comparatively low diving traffic and good underwater visibility, are home to a multitude of species like barracudas, tunas, eels and even stingrays or pufferfishes. Apart from sprawling hard and soft, natural corals, some of the dive spots like Koh Phi or Samae San even feature artificial corals formed over shipwrecks of scuttled boats.
