Diving in Pattaya Thailand
Here we will consider the offer for both non-certified divers (beginners) and experienced ones. We will dive in the region of the Samaesan archipelago (Sattahip naval base). The direction is very popular and therefore try to place an order for the 3-4 of the day before.
If you want to see with your own eyes the beauty of the underwater world and its inhabitants, but you have never had to use scuba gear and dive anywhere else ... never mind! All experienced divers once began their careers with this desire! Interesting?
Yes, of course - it will not do without some (although very short) theoretical training. But do not think that instructors will tell a boring theory in some stuffy and uninteresting class. Of course not. You will receive a short briefing directly on the diver's vessel both on the way to the dive site (dive site) and between dives. And after exploring some diving techniques in the shallow water, under the guidance of an instructor, you will dive into the sea!
This program provides two dives. Diving on the distant islands with one dive nobody in Pattaya does. As part of the tour visited the islands, remote from the city on 50-60 kilometers - the archipelago Samaesan. There are no navigable routes near them, the territory of the Thai Navy base and their training ground are located nearby. There is a whole archipelago of very beautiful islands, quietly and no one will disturb the group. This area is great for exploring the underwater world and diving. The water is amazingly clear and transparent even in the rainy season, great visibility and there are no difficulties for diving. Huge flocks of bright coral fish and other inhabitants of the sea like sea turtles live here.
The first dive will take place in shallow water, up to a maximum of 6 meters. You will see the splendor of the underwater world of the Gulf of Siam in all its diversity! This is one of those beauties that you just need to see, even if only once with your own eyes. The underwater world is fraught with a real sea of emotions and impressions and they will be enough for you with a vengeance for a long time. You will get a completely new life experience. As a rule, having been on diving - people can no longer stop, it delays and excites the imagination! And it is not at all scary if you have never had to scuba dive. You can not allow your fears to prevent you from getting a hurricane of positive emotions! Yes, and a qualified instructor will always accompany you.
Diving is something that everyone can and you will not be an exception.
In the waters of Pattaya and the surrounding islands are always ideal conditions for diving. The water temperature during the year is +28 ... +32 °C, only in the winter months it can drop to +24 ... +25 °C. There are no large sharks, octopuses, killer whales and other dangerous fauna here.
Of course, the most optimal time for diving in Pattaya is from November to April. At this time, the visibility under the water, even in the closest to the city of the islands, can range from 7 to 15 meters. And here, at distant ones like Koh Samesan (Princess Island) comes to 20 meters and more. When the rainy season begins (May - October), visibility of course decreases and as a rule is 12-15 meters. But this does not mean that you will not be able to go diving in the low season! You somehow enjoy the beauty of the underwater world. Indeed, in any immersion has its charms, and even in the waters of the nearby islands there is something to see.
Outlets at sea are always held on a specially equipped diving adventure ship with all the necessary equipment. It can comfortably accommodate 15 people, and the size of the group can be very different, and even classes with two or three novice divers are not rare. But this is one of those very cases when the smaller the group, the better. More attention from instructors, faster training, fewer questions. After the dive, you will be offered a hearty lunch, which is prepared right on the ship.
Many guests of Pattaya have previously been to the resorts of Egypt, dived there and love to compare the underwater world of the Gulf of Thailand with what they could see plunging into the Red Sea. In this case, the usual delusion is to assume that the underwater world of the Red Sea is richer. Well, what can I say: the underwater world of the Gulf of Siam and the Red Sea is no better and no worse than each other, because they are different! First of all, it is possible to note the landscape of the underwater landscape, the variety of sponges, the abundance of soft corals. Especially at the base of the islands with rocky faults extending to the depth or reaching like terraces. Any rocks, stones and boulders are completely dotted with corals and anemones of various kinds. And their coloring is sometimes insanely bright! The most beautiful places just filled with underwater life are usually observed at depths of 8-15 meters. A huge number of sponges, soft corals, wire and fire corals. In addition, there are many varieties of brain corals of various sizes, colors and shapes. Coral scallops, ringed worms (spirobranchuses), magnificent sea lilies like to settle in underwater rocks. Many large (up to 30-40 cm) scaly tridaxes, black trepangs and sea urchins are found in abundance.
Very often, the review is closed with a kind of "curtain" of small coral fish. By the way, this also distinguishes the Gulf of Thailand from what can be seen in the Red Sea. The animals here are somewhat smaller in size than in the Red Sea and are extremely numerous. Who is there just not! You can watch parrot fish, angels, giant groupers and moray eels. Small sharks can be found no more than a meter in length, mainly from the nurse-shark genus. They are not dangerous. It affects how many stingrays and globals are here, but they are rarely found in the Red Sea. The fish-ball is very large in size, if you unexpectedly meet with you, these fish can swell up to half a meter. You can often see an interesting neighborhood: under a coral or in a crevice, a ballfish and moray eel, a nurse shark, a ramp, a moray eel. And all this in a fairly limited space. Finally, it is not uncommon here sea turtles of several species, fish may be found more characteristic of freshwater bodies (in particular, catfish).
Things To Note
Never drink alcohol for 24 hours before diving. No way, under any circumstances! The presence of signs of alcohol is an unconditional reason for the denial of service and a fine of 100% cost. Alcohol and diving are incompatible.
