Diving at Koh Lipe

some of the most outstanding reefs and spectacular scenery in the Andaman Sea

Koh Lipe & the Tarutao National Marine Park has some of the most outstanding reefs & spectacular scenery in the Andaman Sea. With diving possible year round, the numerous islands of the Butang archepelago offer an abundance of diverse marine life no matter when you choose to visit, although for optimum diving conditions we recommend choosing your actual dive dates around the half moon period in any month as then you will have the least current and typically the better visibility as a result. You can check those dates here.

Introduction Dives

PADI Introduction Dives
The intro dive program is a relaxed and safe introduction to scuba diving, closely supervised by Keira. We will teach you some basic skills and review the safety aspects of diving before you enjoy your dives to 12 metres!

We specialise in small groups for your safety and enjoyment. It’s normal to have 2 divers per instructor, but guarantee no more than 3/4 students per instructor.

Can’t swim? Don’t worry, you do not have to be a strong swimmer to partake in our Discover Scuba Program, we can do most of the work for you!

If you can’t swim or are a little bit nervous about the dive then we strongly suggest that you complete the skills practice in the confined water before going out on the boat.

2 Dives/1 Day 4,500 THB
1 Dive/1 Confined skills practice (non swimmers) 3,500 THB

For Discover SCUBA diving you start by having a short theory seassion in the shop before your instructor will show you your equipment. Then there is a quick dive quiz to complete just to show that you were listening during the introductory video.

After that they will give you a briefing on what to expect underwater. Teaching you techniques to clear your ears, how to swim underwater and show you all the fish that you might see whilst diving.

Dive Skills
Your Instructor will brief you on the basic skills for diving. There are 3 different dive skills to complete for the Discover SCUBA Diving experience.
