Here on Koh Tao, at our PADI 5* Instructor Development Centre, we are offering the full range of PADI Scuba Diving courses for complete beginner all the way through to Instructor level. Our PADI Diving Instructors are true professionals; they love scuba diving and are very patient. They like nothing better than to introduce a newcomer to Thailand's underwater world.

Learning to scuba dive with Planet Scuba is a fun experience, and absolutely safe. We pride our ability to offer small classes, with seldom more than 4 students per instructor. We have been the proud recipient of many awards from PADI over the years, including the PADI award for "Excellence in Dive Resort Operation" and the "Outstanding Commitment to PADI” award.

Do you want to spend less time in the classroom? Then do e-Learning!

Then why not choose to do the academics for your PADI course online. PADI offers a range of e-Learning options through their web site, which allows you to do just this. That way when you arrive on Koh Tao, you can spend less time in the classroom and more time enjoying the diving and the island. With all e-Learning courses, with the exception of Divemaster, we offer a 10% discount on the course cost.

e-Learning is currently available for the Open Water, Advanced Open Water, Digital Underwater Photography, Enriched Air, Rescue and Divemaster courses.
