Highlights
    What to Expect
    Get an early start on the day with 6:30am pickup at your Koh Samui hotel, then travel to Lomprayah Pier in an air-conditioned minibus. Board the high speed catamaran ferry to Koh Tao, and enjoy picture-perfect views throughout the 2-hour ride, which passes the scenic islands of Koh Phangan and Koh Nang Yuan.

    Upon arrival at Koh Tao, you’ll meet an instructor and dive boat for a safety briefing and to go over the day’s itinerary, learning the basics of dive equipment and technique. You’ll take your first dive with full supervision of the dive instructor, spending 40–50 minutes exploring a dive spot with bright corals and colorful fishes.

    Return to the surface for a relaxed lunch and “surface interval” before returning to the water for a second dive, continuing to explore the thriving world below the surface. After the second dive, you’ll make the return trip to the ferry dock to catch the boat back to Koh Samui. A driver will meet you at the pier; this tour concludes with drop-off at your Koh Samui hotel.

    Hi, this diving trip designed for beginners, so you don't need to have diving certification.
