Bangkok dive guide


Bangkok diving activities are mainly booking offices, agencies and some dive shops. However it's not limited to this, a few diving centers are located in Bangkok where they give dive instruction and organise the diving excursions to the dive destination of your choice.

Always dive according to your level of training. Check with your dive center for safety, additional information and level required for each dive site before entering the water.

Pattaya is the nearest seaside resort from Bangkok and is easy to reach in less than 2 hours thanks to the new motorway. For this reason some dive centers in Bangkok offer diving there.

Overnight trips to the Samae San area are organised and the sites visited are Hardeep Wreck, Shark Fin Rock and Shark Islands. Longer trips and trips to Hin Alhambra (Chantaburi) and Koh Chang (Trat), can be organised for a longer duration.

The main scuba diving areas around Pattaya are situated in the "Far Islands", a second ring of islands about 20-30 kilometers away from Pattaya. These islands include Koh Kin, Koh Man Wichai, Koh Keung, Koh Hu Chang and Koh Phi.

Pattaya has a huge variety of marine life and abundant coral formations but the visibility is limited. There are many different types of soft and hard corals as well as large schools of jacks, barracuda and tuna. Regularly sighted are Blue spotted stingrays, porcupine pufferfish and moray eels.

Two superb shipwrecks are the highlights of Pattaya diving. They are The Bremen and The Hardeep. These steel cargo ships are intact.

Another wreck called The Vertical Wreck or Koho Maru is a 60 meter ( 197 feet) gas tanker standing vertically from a depth of 60 meters (197 feet) to within 5 meters (16 feet) of the surface. The visibility goes over 30 meters (98 feet). There are large schools of Jack, Tuna, and Great Barracuda around the Wreck.

Over the years the quantity and quality of dive shops in Bangkok has grown a lot. If you're looking for dive equipment everything is available from snorkels, masks to BCDs and wetsuits all at very competitive prices.
You can buy almost all major brands or models from the dive shops, most of them conveniently located near main shopping area. There are also outfitters in Bangkok who can tailor made to fit wet suits at unbeatable prices and the quality is good.

There are quite a number of booking offices and agencies in Bangkok who can organise dive trips and accomodation to most of the famous diving destinations in Thailand. Liveaboard trips to the Similans, Andaman Islands, Burma (Myanmar)...etc can also be tailored to fit your needs.
