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.

I came to koh Tao wanting to get my advanced open water and knew I wanted a smaller shop where I could feel comfortable and confident with my instructor. I had an absolutely amazing experience with my instructor, Vlad, who was super patient and attentive and just all around wonderful to dive with! He knows his stuff and was supportive... More

The staff here are the strength of this shop. Each staff member here made getting our PADI Open Water an incredible experience. Our instructor, Ang, was wonderfully patient, professional, cool, and calm - beyond words just the best. He always made us feel comfortable and safe, helped us through moments of panic underwater, and made it fun & relaxing all... More

We had a great experience learning how to dive in Koh Tao with New Way Diving. Our instructor was great, very professional and its evident he knows what he's talking about. We have written 2-3 emails asking questions about our diving license since we're traveling in South E. Asia and want to dive in many amazing places, but we haven't... More

My husband and I took the PADI Open Water Course at New Way Diving and the experience was even better than we could have hoped for. Our instructor, Ang, was very knowledgeable and took the time to explain everything thoroughly. Only having 3 in our class gave each person a lot of one-on-one time and extra help if needed. We...

My girlfriend and I did our Open Water course with new way diving and couldn't have been happier with our trip. Our course was taught by an amazing instructor, Ang, as well as a dive master in training, Kade. The tiny group size meant we all got a lot of attention and progressed at our own pace without rushing. We... More

My boyfriend and I completed our Open Water certs with New Way. I had dived before as with a scuba diver level certification so I was upgrading, but my boyfriend was starting from zero. The vibe of New Way is laid back and very familiar, but they are still obviously committed to safety. That said- if you are looking for... More
