The Dearly Dive Koh Tao offers PADI certified courses from Open Water and Advanced Open Water to Rescue Diver and Divemaster. If you're not looking to get a certification, you can also try the Discover Scuba Diving program. With the in-house swimming pool, you can complete the initial training and get comfortable with the scuba gear on-site before heading to the ocean. If you are already certified, we can also take you out on fun dives and explore over 20 diving sites around the island. 

At The Dearly Dive, we don't just offer diving; we provide the gateway to a lifetime of incredible memories. The underwater world of Koh Tao is waiting for you, and we're here to make sure your experience is nothing short of extraordinary. The island has the ideal environment for learning scuba diving. With high visibility, mostly calm water,  and warm temperatures all year round, it is perfect for beginners to start their course.

Why the dearly dive?

Experienced Dive Instructors

The key to a memorable diving experience is having knowledgeable, passionate instructors by your side. At The Dearly Dive, we pride ourselves on having a team of skilled dive professionals who are not only certified but also deeply enthusiastic about sharing their love for the ocean with you. Our diving manager, with over 20 years of diving and 18 years of teaching experience, handpicked and trained each instructor to adhere to the highest standards.

Safety First

Safety is paramount in all of our diving activities. Our equipment is regularly maintained, and our team undergoes training to ensure your well-being at all times. We strictly adhere to international safety standards, making your dives with The Dearly Dive not only thrilling but also worry-free.

On-Site Classroom and Swimming Pool

Starting your diving adventure has never been more convenient! Just roll out of bed, enjoy our complimentary breakfast buffet at the hostel, and head straight to our on-site classroom. Once the theory session is concluded, take a leisurely break and indulge in lunch at our restaurant before making your way to the infinity swimming pool for your confined water session.

Small Group Sizes

We believe that a more intimate diving experience leads to better learning and more enjoyable adventures. That's why we keep our group sizes small (less than 4 students), allowing for personalized attention and a deeper connection with the marine environment. You'll feel like part of our underwater family as you explore the wonders of Koh Tao.

At The Dearly, we are committed to women's empowerment, with key positions, including our diving and hostel managers and most of our instructors, held by women. This unique blend of professionalism, experience, and dedication to gender equality sets our team apart.
