Pattaya Dive Sites

Dive Pattaya & Samae San
The main scuba diving areas around Pattaya are located in what we call the "Far Islands". These are the second ring of islands about 20-30 kilometers from Pattaya. The islands are controlled by The Navy, and no permanent structures are built there (boat traffic is also a minimum). These islands include Koh Kin, Koh Man Wichai, Koh Keung Badaan, Koh Hu Chang and Koh Phi. Altogether we have up to 20 different dive sites with visibility ranging from 5 - 15 meters. There are many different types of soft and hard corals, and large schools of Jacks, Barracuda and Tuna. Blue spotted Stingrays, Porcupine Pufferfish and Moray Eels can be spotted on virtually every dive. The Samae San/Sattahip area has similar diving conditions, with the added attraction of two large intact shipwrecks. The Petchburi Bremen is an old freighter sunk in 21 meters of water in the Khram Channel (Sattahip). It's home to many Grouper and Barracuda. The Hardeep is a cargo ship sunk in 28 meters during the World War II era. This ship is completely intact, and can be navigated from bow to stern entirely inside!! Let our experienced guides show you how good diving can be only 2 hours from Bangkok!

Dedicated Dive Boat
Mermaid's dive boat is an 18 meter (60 foot), purpose built scuba diving boat, which we have converted for scuba diving. This is the finest dive boat sailing Pattaya waters.

Features include:
Tanks, compressor and weights on board 100% oxygen with demand delivery system Dive platform at water level Hot lunches cooked on board for all trips Fresh water showers after the dives Experienced captain and crew Class room with television and video Coral Diving
Coral dives around Pattaya are surprisingly good. The somewhat limited visibility is more than compensated for by the huge variety of marine life and abundant coral formations. Our trips include two dives, lunch and a qualified PADI Divemaster or Instructor to supervise the trip.

Wreck Diving
The highlight of Pattaya diving is the two superb shipwrecks, The Bremen and The Hardeep. These steel cargo ships are intact, and can be penetrated by divers with proper training

Overnight Trips
Overnight trips to the Samae San area conducted on a regular basis, featuring diving at the Hardeep Wreck, Shark Fin Rock and Shark Islands. The trip includes 7 dives, all meals, drinks, and an evening Bar-B-Q. Longer trips, as well as trips to Hin Alhambra (Chantaburi) and Koh Chang (Trat), are scheduled for holiday weekends.
