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

Neal and his crew were really nice people. We just snorkeled and most were there for scuba but they did a great job of catering to everyone.

Real Divers was an easy choice for diving when I visited Thailand! I was staying in Bangkok, so I needed to bus down the day of the dive. I called around to all the shops and Real Divers were the only one that went out late enough for me to get there. They also get back around the same time... More

Hi Jason, Thanks for the great review. We are very happy that you and your sister enjoyed diving with us. The speedboat is the fastest and easy way to get to the dive sites and as we only take 10 people we have plenty of room to chill out on the boat. When people are on holiday they dont want... More

Did the discover scuba experience with them and had an awesome time. Neil, James, and Paul were all super friendly and very helpful. They don't use a huge boat like some of the others. It's a much more personalised experience. We had just 6 people on our boat, some doing different things, so it was just perfect. Is recommend these... More
