    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 course in Pattaya, you'll learn scuba diving while exploring the beauty of this undiscovered world. You'll complete five open water dives at five 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 barracudas, tunas, eels and even stingrays or pufferfishes. Apart from sprawling hard and soft, natural corals, some of the dive sites like Koh Phi or Samae San even feature artificial corals formed over shipwrecks of scuttled boats.
