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

Imagine walking into a bar. You see a guy who smiles and say "Hi. How'r you doin' mate?", so you say "Fine" and start having a conversation.

After speaking to Neil on the phone while in Pattaya nothing was to much trouble to arrange my days diving with the dive centre team. I had 3 dives in one day and can't fault this place.
