Scuba Shack has been established for over 10 years on Koh Tao, and they offer all of the PADI and SSI courses from the very basic Discover Scuba Diving to the Divemaster and Instructor training courses, and all of the courses are available in many languages. They can also arrange snorkelling trips to some of the dive site and beaches around Koh Tao if diving is not what you are looking for. All of their training is done is small groups of 3 or 4 people, so you get to spend more time diving, training and more time with your instructors.
They have a well equipped dive boat with a capacity for 25 passengers including instructors, so if you are diving your friend or partner who is a non-diver can join the boat and snorkel on top while you dive below. The boat comes equipped with 40 aluminium tanks with k-valves, emergency oxygen and first aid kit, emergency floatation and radio, a spacious sun deck with cushions and hammocks, and loads of refreshments and chill music for the trip home.
