Have you ever wondered it feels like to breathe underwater? Our try dive experience allows you give it a go without the pressure of committing to a full course. This provides a perfect opportunity to get an overview of the basics and explore the stunning underwater vistas that surround Koh Tao, under the supervision of one of our fun and friendly instructors. While this is not a scuba diving certification in itself, it can earn you credit towards your Scuba Diver or Open Water license. It also allows you to dive under professional guidance for a further month after your experience, enabling you to keep diving in other locations throughout your holiday.
Here at Siam we offer a full day Discover Scuba Diving package which includes two dives. You’ll start off in one of our open air beach classrooms in the morning, where your instructor will orientate you to the equipment you’ll be using and explain what you will be doing out in the water. Then it’s time to jump on board one of our comfortable dive boats and head out to one of the island’s beautiful sheltered bays. On the first dive you will learn some basic skills, safety rules and communication procedures, before taking the plunge into a guided tour around the stunning underwater landscapes, coral reefs and marine life of the bay. The second dive requires no skills practice, allowing you more time to explore the reef further, and admire your amazing new underwater surroundings. But the fun needn’t end here… if you get the buzz for diving and are eager to continue, ask your instructor about taking your Diver or Open Water license. Your skills practice and dives from your discovery experience give you credit towards either of these courses, so with just a couple of extra days training you can be a fully certified diver. Go on, give it a go!
