Frequently Asked Questions:
Do I receive accommodation, while doing a dive course?
We have accommodation available for our students from 200-500B per night.
Are their any HIDDEN costs while doing a dive course?
No! All equipment, boat trips, instruction, certification costs etc. are included in the price. However, we will need a passport photo for your diving licenses etc.
I heard you need a medical checkup to dive!?
If you can take part in normal sport activities, then you shouldn't have any problems taking part in a diving course. We will require you to fill in a medical statement before we can take you diving. The medical form is a list of conditions that MIGHT disqualify you from diving.
If you suffer from certain respiratory disorders, such as allergies or asthma, then you should get checked by a physician at home before coming here.
Getting to Koh Tao......
The options of getting to Koh Tao from Bangkok can be overwhelming. Generally speaking, by far the easiest way to get here is by flying from Bangkok to Koh Samui and from the catch a speed- or express boat. Bangkok Airways have several departures a day from Don Muang Airport.
If flying is beyond your budget, then we recommend taking the train to Chumporn and from there a speed or express boat. Buy a combined ticket from any small ticketing office at Khao San Road in Bangkok. Check out all options. The State Railway of Thailand should be helpful with specific enquiries and timetables.
Apart from the above options, there are a million more air-con buses and minibuses going from Bangkok down south.
From Phuket, Krabi & Malaysia
Either fly to Koh Samui or take bus or minibus to Surat Thani, the main connection to Koh Tao and it's sister islands (Koh Phangan & Koh Samui) in the Gulf of Thailand.
