Eco Koh Tao offers the basic PADI Open Water Course where you’ll learn the theory of scuba diving, get basic knowledge of dive equipment, and master your diving skills ….AND A WHOLE LOT MORE!!
We are strong advocates for the protection and preservation of our environment and offer an array of Marine Conservation Courses to expand your marine knowledge, perfect your buoyancy and increase your understanding of the marine underwater world.
We have our own artificial dive site ‘Junkyard’ which was created in 2009 by a band of eco warriors and is expanding all the time with continual research projects located within, including coral restoration, clam nurseries and more. Just 400mtrs off Mae Haad beach, it’s a popular dive site for many dive schools on the island.
INTERNSHIPS – From 1 week to 3 months, we have internships and packages to suit the budding marine conservationists and you’ll be amazed at what you can learn about marine conservation. You will get a thorough overview of coral reef research and restoration techniques and become aware of the local and global threats to coral reefs. We have multiple ongoing projects that you can join.
To participate in any Marine Conservation courses you must be an Advanced OW Diver which means that non-divers must first complete the Open Water Course and then the Advanced OW course
