Why Scuba Dive in Pattaya?

Pattaya Teacher

Pattaya and Thailand by extension offers

one of the best locations for anyone seeking a perfect scuba diving experience. The city is known for its breathtaking sceneries, clear waters, lots of aquatic animals, excellent weather, and many other aspects that make scuba diving and snorkeling worth trying.

First, Pattaya is popular for its favorable weather all-round the year which is why it has continuously grown in popularity recently. Unlike most other parts of Thailand that experience extreme monsoon winds during some seasons, Pattaya often remains calm nearly all year long. However, the best months to do scuba diving here are from November to March. During this time, weather is always hot and sunny and even when it showers, sea temperatures hardly fall below 30c. What’s more? Water visibility often ranges from 6-20m depending on the different times of the year as well as the nature of a particular dive site.

In addition, Pattaya boasts some of the finest dive sites in the country with most of these comprising excellent wreck dives. The city is known to have over five shipwrecks with the most popular being the S.S. Suddhabid; recognized as one of the world’s top 10 wreck dives. Others of its type include HTMS Mataphon and HTMS Kut.

Last but not least, Pattaya is easily accessible from Bangkok, Thailand’s capital and one of the country’s major tourist destinations. Indeed, it will only take you a couple of hours to commute from Bangkok to Pattaya by road.



Why Choose Pattaya Dive Center?

Let’s face it. When choosing a scuba diving center

, several key factors should come to play. For example, you will need to strike a balance between great services and trainings, dive sites available, and of course, the cost involved.

Luckily for you, these three areas are exactly what we here at Pattaya Dive Center Pattaya are more focused on.

As such, we boast of a proven track record and a glowing reputation as being among the best certified scuba and snorkeling trainers in the city. Our services include ferrying tourists to various key scuba dives in Pattaya and its environs including the three major islands; Koh Larn Pattaya, Koh Sak, and Koh Krok. We also advice on where and when to visit each of these locations depending on the prevailing weather conditions, divers’ experience and certification, as well as and the total expenses involved.

In addition, we offer personalized training services which are completed at our state-of-the-art facility and also using highly advanced equipment. For example, we have our own boats which are very well equipped and observe all the necessary safety measures. In addition, we offer our students sufficient training materials while also ensuring that all crews involved in training are PADI certified and can thus offer high level of expertise.

Numerous Choices of Dive Sites

As mentioned earlier, Pattaya Dive Center is dedicated at giving you the much-needed exposure to different scuba dive sites Pattaya has to offer. There are over 20 dive sites spread across the four main islands surrounding this beautiful city. The distance from the coast of Pattaya to these locations ranges between 7-10 kilometers which is why fast boats are needed.

Pattaya Dive Center is dedicated to ferry you to any of these sites which will help offer you a great opportunity to sunbathe, dive, or snorkel in some of the most beautiful waters in Thailand. As such, we facilitate daily trips to these locations although this is majorly dependent on the weather conditions.

So, make your booking today and be part of the next group to experience the spectacular scuba Pattaya experience.
