Fun Diving in Koh Kood
For those of you who are already certified divers, Koh Kood has an exciting variety of marine life and many pristine dive sites just waiting for you to explore. Our experienced dive guides are ready to show you around and share their knowledge of the local aquatic life of Koh Kood and the Gulf of Thailand. You will be taken to some of the best diving in the area and experience the beautiful wonders of our surrounding waters.
Koh Kood has a number of sheltered sandy bays which offer perfect depth and conditions for novice divers, while more adventurous can visit our deeper Dive Sites located further off shore.
The reef life is varied with a multitude of beautiful corals, supporting a variety of tropical fish. We have some stunning examples of hard branching corals, sponges, anemones and colourful soft corals. The marine life includes a healthy population of all the typical reef fish found in the gulf of Thailand; Angel Fish, Butterfly Fish, different Nudibranch, Scorpion Fish, Lionfish, Moral Eels and a number of different species of ray. Seahorses are common in our waters, as are both hawksbill and green turtles. At certain divesites we can also be lucky enough to see white-tip and black-tip reef sharks and even the occasional nurse shark too.
We are pretty laid back here at Koh Kood Divers, so generally speaking our boat will only go out once a day. However, we also offer shore dives and day trips. It really depends on our customers and we can be flexible in terms of fitting around what suits you.
We try to deliver relaxed and long dives, with small groups as standard. Dive times are usually around 1 hour depending on air consumption – so breath slow!
The waters around Koh Kood make for perfect tropical diving. There is usually little or no current and the water temperature averages around 30 degrees throughout the year, dipping to 26 degrees in the monsoon season.
Prices are 1,500 THB per dive all equipment is provided and included in this prices. All you need to bring is yourself and lots of enthusiasm!
One of our dive professionals will spend about 1 hour reminding you of some of the dive theory you learnt in your Open Water Course. We will talk a little about air spaces, equalizing, equipment and Dive Procedures. We will then set equipment up together, make a buddy check and then giant stride into the water. This will provide a perfect opportunity for you to become relaxed and comfortable in the water again.
We will start in shallow water with a few basic skills with your regulator and mask, then move to slightly deeper water where you can practice and have fun with some buoyancy skills. Usually there is then still time for a 20+ minute dive during which you can continue working on your air conservations and buoyancy skills and to check out some of the local marine life of Koh Kood.
Once you have done your scuba tune-up you will be relaxed and confident enough to continue the adventure of diving and you’ll be ready to enjoy some for more fun dives with us!
