The local Thai captain has excellent knowledge of the water and weather conditions in the Gulf of Thailand.
During daily dive trips there are tasty lunches and snacks, drinks, cool tunes and friendly professional diving staff onboard. To ensure customers great satisfaction we keep our diving groups small so our dive guides will be able to give all divers all the attention they need to enjoy their open water dives even more.

We think that Koh Pha-Ngan Island is the perfect place to dive from in the area. We are closer to the best dive site in the Gulf of Thailand and for slightly longer boat journeys we are able to avoid the crowds that are typical when diving from our more famous neighbour island called Koh Tao.
The local dive sites around Koh Phangan all boast lovely corals on gently sloping reefs. They are mostly shallow sites so are perfect for beginner divers or those who enjoy long lazy dives. As local dive sites you have the option of Koh Ma, Mae Haad and also Haad Yao Beach.
Sail Rock – our favorite! This is undoubtedly the best dive site in the Gulf of Thailand. The pure quantity of fish is breath-taking. Sailrock also boasts a vertical swim-thru known as ‘the chimney’ and a small air pocket at 16m which your guide will be happy to show you.
Furthermore we do explore some of the most amazing dive sites around Koh Tao Island. Our favourite dive sites here are Chumpon Pinnacles, South-west pinnacles, White Rock and Shark Island. We try to time our dives to avoid the busy Koh Tao boats.
Additionally we also offer diving at the Angthong National Marine Park. There are two magnificent swim thrus for you to explore. Shallow long dives and surrounded by lovely scenery these islands make up for a truly relaxing diving experience.
The owners Vic and Kim, together with their team of highly qualified diving professionals, have been diving the waters around Koh Phangan for many years and look forward introducing you the amazing fish and underwater world the Gulf of Thailand has to offer.
