Koh Tao - Sairee Beach - Learn to Dive - dorm room
Arrive with the ferry to be picked up by your driver, who will take you to the dive center (or hotel/hostel?) Once you've settled, you'll return to the dive center for 4pm to fill in all the necessary paperwork, watch the first few videos and discuss the course schedule for the coming days.
Meet in the morning for a little more theory and then underwater you go for our confined sessions in the swimming pool.
Get ready for the afternoon boat and out into the ocean you go to complete a few skills and Dives 1+2.
A slightly early start but up in time to see the ocean wake up dives 3+4 complete and CONGRATS you are our newest Open Water Diver!
Check out day! If you have time, consider staying on for some fundiving. Make use of that new certificate you earned over the last few days.

Both the dorm accommodation and the private bungalows are right next to the dive center, and in the middle of Sairee beach.
Walk out of your room, and within 15 seconds of walking (really slowly) you will be standing on the beach, next to the dive center.
The dorm rooms are just above the walking street of Sairee beach. You can look down at the dive center and the beach.
The bungalows are a little more drawn back, and provide a calmer and more private setting for your sleep.
The dorm rooms are fitted with 3 bunkbeds, a balcony and a private bathroom with hot water shower. The dorm rooms are fan only, (which is preferred by many divers), but for an extra fee (paid locally), you can upgrade the dorm to A/C. We try to keep boy and girl rooms seperate, but we can't guarantee that you will not be in a mixed dorm.
The private bungalows come standard with the option of both A/C and a fan. Private bathroom with a hot shower and a small porch.
The easiest way to get to Koh Tao from Bangkok, is to take either the bus or the train down South to connect with the Lomprayah High Speed Catamaran in Chumphon, for a 1,5 hour crossing to Koh Tao.
If travelling down to Koh Tao in the high seasons or around a full moon party it's always a good idea to book your bus ticket in advance!
Your travel agency can help you reserve and book your ticket.
Regardless of where you are in Thailand, your travel agency can get you to Koh Tao on the fastest and most convenient way.
