The Dearly Dive offers PADI certified courses from Discover Scuba Diving to Open Water and Advanced Open Water. If you already certified, we can also take you out on fun dives and explore over 20 diving sites around the island.  


Koh Tao has the ideal environment to learn scuba diving. With high visibility, mostly calm water,  and warm temperature all year round, it is perfect for beginners to start their course. Additionally, it is one of the least expensive places to get certified!
