What to Expect
After we pick you up, we will make you familiar with the scuba equipment. As soon as we are on the boat one of our professional crew will hold a Boat Briefing to make it comfortable for you. When the we reach the first Site we’ll go for a scuba dive in small groups, each with a professional Padi leader (our dive time is one hour or 50 bar) or – if you have more than one hour – let’s go snorkeling with a trained and certified captain who takes care for your safety.
Then it is time for Lunch that will take at least one hour. We serve traditional Thai food, not too spicy (you can add chilli if you dare). While eating, the boat will move on to the second Dive/Snorkel site.
Again we go for a scuba dive in small groups with a professional Padi Divemaster or Instructor (our dive time is one hour or 50 bar) or snorkeling.
On the way back to Koh Chang you can have a nap or enjoy the beautiful view. If you want we bring you back to your Hotel straight away or you can stay with us in the Dive school for a decompression drink and have a look for the photos we made on the trip.
Join a day trip with us and explore the beautiful and fascinating underwater world around Koh Chang from the surface with your whole family. For insecure swimmers we have always life jackets in every size on board. Remember, your safety is our primary objective!
At the snorkel spots around Koh Chang and Koh Rang the colorful coral reef begins short below the surface and is slightly sloping. At some spots (eg Hin Luk Bat, or Hin Raap) large areas are no deeper than 4 meters. Small and Medium-sized fish live there, sometimes in huge schools. Please be reminded: they should not be fed by humans in order to maintain the natural balance.
Next to loads of fish and a big variety of corals you can watch the divers on the same spot. Maybe it’s one of your friends or family? Your interest will be aroused in diving and we can show you the underwater world from a completely new view during a Discover Scuba Dive on the next day.
The plankton-enriched water affords a great diversity of marine life. Many colorful little reef-fish are the evidence. There are impressive reefs in the area with a variety of soft and hard corals. Most dive sites are great Multi-level sites, from 5m to 16m – 18m depth. That allows you long dive times, dives up to 1 hour are not rare. Deep dive sites are rare around Koh Chang, but there are a few we can offer (like Pinnacles close to Koh Rang).
The water temperature is 28˚C to 32˚C therefore a thin Wetsuit/Shorty or Lycra is recommended, but not necessary. Visibility can reach 30m but is variable. Most of the time it is around 15m. The best time to dive is between September to end of May. The rainy season can reduce visibility or make it difficult to reach the dive sites. However there are calmer periods during the low season when diving conditions are also good.
