"The staff are very friendly & helpful. We had a great experience! The PADI Open Water Course was great and so glad we did it. I would recommend spending the course over 4 days instead of three as the days were long but the Diving staff and the experience was Amazing! :-)"

"The Backpackers Thailand experience was a pleasure! We did the Scuba (PADI Open Water) package and it was very enjoyable. What I think sets Backpackers Thailand apart is the service by Bambi and his wife. Bambi did an over-the-top great job facilitating social gatherings for the group. In my opinion, the package was already great, Bambi made it extra special facilitating the group. Bambi's wife (Ratchi) was very knowledgeable and helpful also in booking onward travel."

"I did the Diving & Full Moon Party Package course. But unfortunately I didn't complete the course as I personally didn't enjoy it, but Bambi did everything he could to make the package an amazing trip. I met some great people and had tons of fun! The meet & greet on the first night was a success and messy! 5 Stars!"

Here at Lotus Dive we are an efficient, loyal and overall pleasant dive school.

We have outstanding service which will ensure your diving experience is an unforgettable one and to make things as easy for you as possible, we even include free taxi pickups and drop off from and to our school. This does not include the east side of the island, but for those elsewhere, you will not have to spend a baht on taxi services!

When it comes to diving, Koh Phangan is like a divers magical secret. This is due to its possession of Sail Rock which is a premier and out of this world dive sight. It is classed as #1 in the Thai Gulf. Sail Rock is, by far, the most prestige place you could want to dive and it is practically a second home to us at Lotus Dive as most of our diving takes place here. What?s more, it may also be possible to organise trips to the ?Golden Triangle? which consists of Sail Rock, Chumpon Pinnacle and Southewest pinnacle. These 3 dive sites are the greatest in the Gulf of Thailand!

In case you did not know about Sail Rock? This 30 metre dive site has earned its reputation due to a number of elements. Firstly, this triangular shaped pinnacle contains a swim through inside, also known as the ?chimney?. An entry at 12 metres enables you to swim inside the rock itself, allowing you to witness all that lurks within it, a very intimate experience whilst diving. There is an exit at 18 metres too. In addition, the glorious amounts of colourful reef and coral that surrounds the entire rock make it the perfect place to live for hundreds of species of marine life. This means your dives at Sail Rock will be unique and unforgettable. Hence the nickname ?fish soup.? Don?t forget that this dive sight has the highest number of Whale Sharks sightings in Thailand too, so if you want the opportunity to see one then this is the dive site for you!

This is the perfect place to undertake your PADI Open Water course. With the spirit of parties in the atmosphere, entertaining social life and the fantastic Sail Rock around the corner, you will not regret it!

The PADI Open Water Course is the most popular training course to help you obtain your diving certification for scuba diving to a maximum depth of 18 metres.

PADI Open Water courses on Koh Phangan can be taken in just 3 days as we start early in the morning.

Children over 10 years old can take the Junior Open Water Course.

If you are visiting the famous Full Moon Party, then consider doing your Open Water course on Koh Phangan a few days before the party starts

After the party you have many choices.

Either head over to our dive facility on Koh Tao to undertake your Advanced course so you get a full variation of dive sites in the Gulf.

Alternatively, journey over to our dive facilities on Phi Phi and Phuket to continue your courses at the dive sites in the Andaman Sea on the West coast of Thailand.
