About diving in Ko Tao

by Scubacrowd

Koh Tao, also known as the “Turtle Island", is a major destination for scuba divers. In fact, Koh Tao is the second most popular place in the world to get a scuba diving certification (first being Australia). The underwater sceneries are simply astonishing, with abundant marine life and coral

The Koh Tao environment will please as well open water divers as advanced divers.Koh Tao has developed as a center for environmentally friendly scuba diving practices, thus including an effort to grow and preserve coral reefs and reintroducing young turtles in the ecosystem of the island.

Koh Tao features about twenty beaches and bays, providing accommodations for all budgets, from luxury resorts to beach bungalows or family hotels. As almost all the resorts in Koh Tao offer scuba diving certifications courses, it happens that students may receive free lodging while doing their training. How to get to Koh Tao? The only option is by boat from the mainland at Chumphon or Surat Thani, or eventually from Koh Phangan and Koh Samui.
