Koh Tao - Sairee Beach, Thailand

Advanced course - dorm room (3 days / 2 nights. Incl. 5 dives)

Koh Tao is a beautiful little island surrounded by warm tropical waters that are perfect for those seeking diving adventures. It is by far the most popular spot for dive training in South East Asia, if not the world!! And for many good reasons!

Of all the diving offered on the East coast of Thailand, Koh Tao has the best of it. It is a chilled paradise for those wanting to do their initial course or already certified divers continuing their education. Combine the great diving options with the lush island life, with jungle hikes, great beaches, sunset views and a lively nightlife the island becomes almost addictive.

Koh Tao offers good diving for divers of all levels. Many dive sites are sheltered reefs with beautiful corals, good visibility, shallow depths and little to no current, which especially provides the perfect dive sites for beginners. But, the island also offers deeper dive sites and ship wrecks combined with an incredible amount of fish life, and the possibility of seeing the majestic whale shark. Most sites are reached in less than 20 minutes by boat, and done from the purpose build dive boats, the daily diving is easy and professionally run. Making both the courses and fun diving very relaxed and fun.

Location – Sairee Beach
Koh Tao in general is packed with different bays and beaches that are well worth visiting with your snorkeling gear. The island itself has a great size in terms of exploration, and it is easy to get around on a scooter. However, if you want a young and very vibrant vibe, Sairee beach is the place to be! The atmosphere is buzzing with hippie happy backpackers hanging out in the cafes, the beach bars and obviously on the beach itself… which is the longest and most popular beach on the island. (you will see why!)

Your accommodation - dorm room
Is right next to the dive center, and in the middle of Sairee beach. Walk out of your room, and within 15 seconds (of walking really slowly) you will be standing on the beach, next to the dive center. The dorm rooms are just above the walking street of Sairee beach. You can look down at the dive center and the beach. If you threw a rock, you could probably hit the beach from the balcony? (that was NOT a challenge! Just a thought...).

Your room
Is a dorm room with 6 single beds, and a cooling fan. There is a little balcony and a larger bathroom with a hot (nice!) shower and the room is daily cleaned. The room is simple, but clean, comfortable and right where you want it, when you come back from diving and in need of a good nap!
