Real Divers is a British family run PADI 5 STAR dive center, we run daily dive and snorkeling trips as well as all PADI courses to the Pattaya Coral Islands and Samae San Islands.

Real Divers offer the best and easiest option for first time divers who would like to do the PADI discover scuba diving experience or PADI Open water course.

The trips start with a 9.30am pick up from your hotel; included in the trip is Professional supervision, 2 dives, rental, lunch/fruit/drinks, photo's (GoPro4), DSD wall chart certification of completion and pick up and return to your hotel (3pm).

We run the trips in our 12 metre twin engine speedboat so the time spent to the islands takes 20 minutes instead of an hour plus like the big boats.

We can also pull right up to the beach bay and put the equipment on in shallow water instead of putting the equipment on and jumping into deep water and have 200 metre surface swims to the beach such as on the large boats. You wil get to dive on a shallow coral reef and see colourful corals and marine life and a great chance of seeing large turtles.

After years of teaching this experience and courses we know we have the best and easiest Discover scuba diving or Open water course in Pattaya, get in touch with us by e-mail we also offer group discounts

Walked into the shop on recommendation from a friend. Within 10min we were booked for diving the next day. Real divers offer a great pick up and drop off service from pattaya hotels to and from the dive boat (based at Pattaya pier). The pick up was very good (especially as we've be lugging our own dive gear around). Neil... More

Out of a group of 7, 6 were going to be first time divers. Unfortunately, only 5 of us ended up finishing the dive. Neil is extremely responsive to emails and more than willing to clarify all our doubts and help us plan out our trip. Due to choppy seas, we were not able to go by the speed boat.... More

Hi Nirubhat, Thank you for the excellent review about your Padi Discover Scuba diving with Real Divers. We are very happy you enjoyed the dive boat and all the comforts that go with it.

I booked "discover scuba diving" at real divers and had a great time with Neal and James. The trip to the diving spot on their speedboat was fun already.
