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.

Really enjoyed the PADI open water course here despite the unseasonal weather conditions! This was due to the enthusiasm and knowledge of the Whit the instructor. Highly recommended.

I took my PADI Open Water course at New Way after never having dived before. I was a little nervous and all the instructors at New Way made me feel very comfortable and safe diving with them. We started in the ocean instead of a pool and Ang took very good care of all of us the whole time. It... More

My boyfriend and I had previously dived a few years back and wanted to get our PADI Open Water certification at the start of our 8 months of backpacking. We researched before starting our trip by emailing many different dive schools in Koh Tao. New Way were the friendliest in their response, giving us the various options and suggesting accommodation... More

When I came to Koh Tao in December 2016 I never dived before and was curious, if I would like it. I chose New Way diving because for 2 reasons: 1. They offered a Scuba Discovery Dive, SDS (2 try dives) with the option to continue with the PADI Open Water Diver (OWD) certification and only pay for the upgrade.... More

Both of us did diving courses here and visited many other diving shops in other islands. But New Way Diving was one of the best places where I actually felt safe and in good hands. For every dive there was always a dive master accompanying us when the group was more than three people.

Wit did an excellent job on my scuba tune up and the open water certification for my friends. I received my Advanced with Ang. He was clear with instructions, efficient, and a really great guy to hang out... More

Friends recommended New Way Diving, and it turned out to be a great experience. Whit is my coach for the OW course, like his way of teaching, logical, calm, clear, strict yet in a gentle way, which is a good way for learners to lay the foundation of diving. For my AOW course, Peter coached me, a different style, detailed... More

New Way Diving was perfect right from the start. They were more then friendly on the phone, picked us up at the pier and arranged an accommodation for the night as we arrived quite late. Our diving instructor was Vlad who did nothing but an outstanding job. He is not only the best diving instructor that you could possibly think... More
