Learn to Dive

(8 days/7 nights)

Discover diving on the idyllic tropical island of Koh Tao and become a fully qualified scuba diver

With its shallow coral gardens, warm tropical waters and excellent visibility, Koh Tao Island is recognised as being one of the best places in the world to learn to dive. At the end of your training, your package includes two additional leisure dives.

Not only will you learn how to dive, but you will also attend a Thai kick boxing camp, learn to fly through the air on a trapeze, and enjoy a full day’s treasure hunt on this magical island, finding secret bays and viewpoints that are rarely visited by others. And, we’ll ensure that you get a really good Thai massage too!

Koh Tao Island

Koh Tao is a small, laid back island with golden, sandy beaches and secluded bays. Jungle-clad hills rise steeply from the beaches and offer some glorious views across the azure sea below.

The way-of-life on the island is much more chilled than neighbouring Koh Samui and Koh Pha Ngan, with hidden coves, hammocks strung from dreamy beach bars, coconut palms on every bay and lazy evenings with a cold beer or a freshly made cocktail.

Many would argue, however, that its true beauty lies beneath its crystal clear waters.

Extra Treats!

Your dive training should take three and a half days plus an extra day for your leisure dives. That leaves plenty of time to enjoy the island of Koh Tao, and we have arranged for you to enjoy the following;

  • Thai Kick Boxing: You will spend the morning at a genuine Muay Thai training camp, learning the art of Thai kick boxing. You’ll be shown how to strap up in preparation for your workout and will then be given instruction in the various kicks & punches, using your knees, elbows, fists and shins. You will not be fighting, but you will be pushed to the limit!
  • Trapeze School: We will take you to a trapeze school, where you will be taught how to fly through the air, like a real circus performer! Flying high in the sky, hanging upside down and looking over the tropical waters and jungle-clad mountains of Koh Tao is not something you’ll easily forget!
  • Treasure Hunt: You will embark upon a full day’s treasure hunt, that will take you to secluded bays and hilltop views that most tourists never see. The assignment is a blend of the traditional treasure
    hunt with clues to follow along the way and the more modern ‘escape room’ scenario. You will follow
    clues by foot, jeep and even in the water with a snorkel and mask
  • Thai Massage: After all your exertions, you will have fully deserved a wonderful Thai massage. It is
    a form of body therapy unrivalled around the world and we are sure that once you have experienced an hour hour-long, traditional Thai massage, you will become hooked!
