PADI COURSES

Scuba Academy Koh Chang

We offer PADI courses from Discover Scuba Diving (min. age 10yrs old) and Bubble Maker (ages 8 & 9) all the way to DiveMaster. The courses can be done in Thai or English, and the books can be ordered for any language.

Our Dive Shop is conveniently located in BangBao by the piers where all boats leave from, at the southern tip of the island.

All courses include equipment, lunches and soft drinks on the boat, and if you stick around after the course, we’re known to throw the occasional BBQ.

We’re one of Koh Chang’s only Thai operated Dive Operator, so we promise an awesome cultural experience along with the diving!
