About the dive center
They are a team of experienced professional divers who have been working and teaching diving together side by side on the island of Koh Tao for many, many years. After becoming friends and having the same idea of sharing what they love, a passion for diving, they decided to come together as one team for 2015 and opened the SSI dive center "Pearl Diving Koh Tao’’.
They offer diving on the boat on a purpose built dive boat, making it more comfortable for divers with easy entry and exit points and flexible equipment set up. It has a separate shaded area, cafe and sun deck on the roof where divers can hang out between and after dives. With additional fresh fruits, tea, coffee, breakfast, shower facilities and friendly staff on board, it makes their boat one of the best dive boat on Koh Tao.
The main priority is to provide a safe and enjoyable environment for diving, no matter if you are a beginner or certified diver. They always plan your dive schedule together with you and try to be as flexible as possible in each situation. They like to operate in small groups of students, so the student to instructor ratio is 4:1 or 6:2 with additional professional dive assistance to keep the highest level of performance and they make sure their staff are fully updated with diving standards, skill practice and performance.
