Scuba Diving In Koh Chang

Scuba Diving in Koh Chang is something that can be done year round! Our dry season happens from October through May so this is when you’ll have ideal conditions for your dive trip to Thailand.

If you do happen to pop over during the low season, the day trips are usually in Koh Rang as this little set of islands provides a great shield against heavy surge and winds, and is incidentally one of the most beautiful marine reserves in the Koh Chang area.

No matter when you’re coming, we’ll have our boats in the water, ready to take you around the Koh Chang dive sites!

  • HTMS Chang – Largest Shipwreck in Thailand.

  • Local Reefs – Shallow, easy dives for all levels.

  • Koh Rang National Park – Varied reefs, ideal for divers and snorkelers.

All our scuba diving and snorkeling packages include gear, pick-up and drop-off at your hotel, as well as lunch on the boat.

We’re also happy to offer special dives like discounted clean-up dives on Fridays, or overnight trips to the Koh Rang Marine Park, scroll down and check out our deals for more info!

Diving With Scuba Academy in Koh Chang

  • review rating 5  Highly recommend this scuba company. With so many around Koh Chang they can seem a bit factory oriented. Jack makes learning to dive fun and most importantly safe. He is also a very funny and sweet man. Great to have a beer with once you've have finished your course of course. Already booked in for next year as long as I can dive with Jack. Peace

    review rating 5  I made a special visit to Koh Chang to dive with Jack after a friend had recommended him and it was the right choice, diving with Jack is so much fun and he is a great instructor. I completed my advanced and rescue diver courses with him and enjoyed every moment. My travel partner was initially quite nervous and he held her hand through the whole first dive until she was confident on her own and she completed her open water with him. Bang Bao is also a very sweet village on the water and definitely worth spending time away from the main island strips. 5*
