High season on Koh Tao usually starts in June and runs through July and August. So if you are planning to learn to Scuba dive or do some fun dives, it is best to pre book to avoid dissapointment. This should also be said of your accommodation as at this time of year, hostels, guesthouses and hotels can be fully booked. Dont forget to book your travel ahead of time as well, if your comming from Bangkok, Koh Samui, Chumphon, Surat Thani or Koh Phangyan book your travel as soon as possible. Koh Tao does get full at this time of year but the same can be said for many places around Thailand, be aware that it is the monsoon season now on the west coast of Thailand, so many travelers and holiday makers are planning their holidays already for the Gulf of Thailand, where the weather is usually much better. Book early and come dive which Scuba J

Scuba Diving on Koh Tao is great, its so hot I don't need a wet suit, and it's so sunny it bleaches my hair blond. 

Underwater there are lots of fish. My favorite fish is a porcupine fish. The reason I like to see porcupine fish is because they have large puppy dog eyes and remind me of a beagle which happens to be my favorite breed of dog.
I am a fitness freak, so enjoy going to ne of the many gyms on the island, which are all full of the latest equipment and thankfully air conditioned as well!
The restaurants in Koh Tao are outstanding. It is easy to become a fat boy. I really like eating pizza but I can't eat it all the time coz I have a fat person trapped inside of me trying to get out and I want to keep him confined.
I also like drinking in Koh Tao. The night life is very good. You can go dancing every night. During the daytime I like to go and frolic around in the shallows pretending to be a hippopotamus.

Diving Around Koh Tao.
 
Hello everybody,
 
My name is Dena and I'm part of the team of amazing PADI Scuba Dive Instructors here at Scuba Junction Diving Co Ltd, Koh Tao.
The best part of my job is that every day is a good day here in paradise. I have the privilege of teaching people how to scuba dive. Just last month my students and me where doing their first open water dive at Japanese Gardens. At this dive site you can enjoy the colourful reef fish, like butterfly fish (they mate for life, did you know that) and beautiful corals in all different variety. We were nearing the end of our dive and all of a sudden a turtle decided to join us. It swam with us and followed us around for a good 5 minutes. It was the best first dive for my students you can ever imagine.
Diving in Koh Tao brings lots of underwater discoveries you can do. We have dive sites for everybody. Whether you are a first time diver or a seasoned one.
Want to learn how to Scuba Dive at a 5 star PADI dive enter, where fun, pleasure and safety is key, learn in small groups with amazing PADI Scuba Instructors come and see us at Scuba Junction Diving Co Ltd.
 
Sunny greetings from Dena.
 

New Adventure New World

At the start of my travels I had no idea where they would take me and the things I would learn. Over months of travel I have seen many amazing things. However, none compare to the spectacle of the underwater world that scuba diving has allowed me to experience.

Of the many people I spoke to, they had nothing but great things to say about Thailand diving; especially Koh Tao Diving. Therefore, cementing my decision to become a PADI scuba diver. Knowing that it would allow me to experience diving Thailand, diving Koh Tao as well as diving anywhere my journeys will take me.

Taking my first steps in diving I was nervous but very excited! I quickly became overwhelmed with the vast amount of terminology and equipment I was using and learning. Before long I became accustomed to all of the scuba gear; dive computer, dive watches, diving mask, dive knife, dive light quickly became extensions of my own body while underwater.

Entranced by the new world scuba diving had allowed me to witness; I was then set on making it known to as many people as possible. By furthering my diving knowledge and experience I became a PADI Divemaster to work in a dive shop and share the wonders that await below. Being able to see the same nervousness and excitement I had, on the faces of those that I take diving has to be one of the best parts of my job. Knowing that they have just begun to witness an awe inspiring world that will continue to do so for the rest of their lives.

Hi my name is Craig Low and I have been lucky enough to be a Padi dive master on a small island in the middle of the Thai gulf called Koh Tao for the last 4 years.
As a dive pro on Koh Tao I get to do lots of dives every day in all the amazing dive sites around the island.
There are a variety of different dives here for example I have seen my fair share of whales including Brydes whale and of course whale sharks at Chumphon pinnacle, Shark Island and southwest pinnacle.
As well as being buzzed by trigger fish at red rock, laem thian and green rock. All three of these dive sites have very good swim troughs large and small.
Some of the most beautiful coral beds on the island are at sites like lighthouse, white rock and tanote bay.
We also are very lucky to have a wreck just off Sairee beach the H.T.M.S SATTAKUT.
Which is very good for training with the wreck speciality to practice penetration.
We have a lot of great sites around the island but we also have some great bars and restaurants
To kick back and relax at.
So if you are interested on seeing some of the sites around this beautiful island with an experienced dive master pop down and see me at scuba junction diving co ltd Sairee beach.
I am the big Scottish guy you can’t miss me!!
