Located on the pristine island of Koh Tao, is a small to medium sized dive center known for its family feel and personal touch. Do you want to be the first diver in the water? Then come and dive with us! Our boats are the first to leave the island early in the morning in order to have the premier dive sites to ourselves.

At the beginning it was a big struggle to choose the best diving school from over 60 of them being available, however once I got to the page of New Way it was decided.... More

Vlad was our instructor accompanied with a Dive Master in training, there were only two of us taking the course so it was a amazing ratio of students:professionals. Vlad was a great instructor, remaining patient, he... More
