Have you always wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater? If you want to try
scuba diving, but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a full certification course,
Discover Scuba Diving Koh Tao is for you. You will learn the basics of diving in the classroom, try
it out in a swimming pool to make sure you are comfortable, and finally enjoy two dives
in the ocean! While not a scuba certification course, Discover Scuba Diving is a quick
and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world at Kohtao and
Samui in just one day.
The schedule is as follows:
Here on diving Koh Tao there are over 25 nearby dive sites. We have shallow Koh tao diving like Twin Peaks where you can dive with beautiful tropical fish from 10m deep to 18m. Then we have the deeper Koh Tao diving sites, Chumpon Pinnacle, a world class dive site 11km North East of Kohtao, the most likely place to spot a whaleshark. The opposite direction from diving Koh Tao, we have South West Pinnacle, a beautiful coral clad pinnacle with big schools of fish. The remaining sites of Kohtao are mainly close to the shore of the island. A beautiful dive destination.
Scuba diving is a mode of underwater diving where the diver uses a self-contained underwater breathing apparatus which is completely independent of surface supply, to breathe underwater. Scuba divers carry their own source of breathing gas, usually compressed air, allowing them greater independence and freedom of movement than surface-supplied divers, and longer underwater endurance than breath-hold divers.
Open circuit scuba systems discharge the breathing gas into the environment as it is exhaled, and consist of one or more diving cylinders containing breathing gas at high pressure which is supplied to the diver through a regulator.
