You can find our dive shop on Koh Lanta @ Lanta Castaway Beach Resort, located at the south end of Long Beach.

Is Discover Scuba Diving Safe?

Your Discover Scuba Diving trip begins in the morning with a safety briefing from your instructor, followed by a short boat journey to one of the amazing coral reefs in the Andaman Sea such as Koh Haa Lagoon or Koh Bida Nok.

Discover Scuba Diving is a super safe and fun way to try diving on Koh Lanta without a scuba certification. You'll be with one of our experienced and professional scuba instructors at all times underwater.

Is Discover Scuba Diving Easy?

During the boat trip to the dive site, you can try the scuba gear with your instructor, and get used to breathing from a scuba tank - you'll be surprised at how easy it is!

Once at the dive site, you'll learn some basic diving skills in shallow water with your instructor, and after this, you'll continue diving and exploring the same coral reefs as certified divers.

How Deep is Discover Scuba Diving?

You'll have a dive instructor with you at all times and can dive to a maximum depth of 12 m, around 39 feet, but that doesn't mean that you need to go all the way down to 12 m. You can stay more shallow than this if you prefer.

After a delicious lunch on the boat and some time for snorkeling, we'll move the boat to a different dive site for the second dive with your instructor.

What can I see during Discover Scuba on Lanta?

During your discovery dives, you'll have a chance to see some of Koh Lanta's amazing marine life at some of Thailand's best dive sites and coral reefs.

  • Includes 2 dives.
  • Maximum 12 meters depth.
  • Includes lunch & soft drinks on the boat.
  • Includes free equipment rental.

How long does Discover Scuba Diving take?

All our Discover Scuba Diving trips are 2-tank 1/2 day dive trips, with boat trip times depending on which dive sites you are visiting. If possible, we like to make each dive up to an hour, depending on how quickly you breathe air from your scuba tank.

Following your 2 dives and lunch break between the dives, it's time to head back to Koh Lanta, returning around 1:30pm - 2pm.

What's the difference between Discover Scuba and Open Water Diver?
