ABOUT FIFTY SIX DIVE
FIFTY SIX DIVE has an entirely different look and vibe from every other Koh Tao dive shop. Our base on Sairee Beach is a bright, airy, and welcoming space for all levels of diver - whether you’re a complete beginner or a seasoned pro.
We place a heavy focus on making diving on Koh Tao safe, informative, and fun:
Having our own boat gives us the flexibility and control to choose the best Koh Tao dive sites to match our customers' needs.
We only use leading brands of scuba diving equipment, and all of our gear is safe, clean, and regularly serviced by our on-staff ScubaPro-trained technicians.
WHY CHOOSE FIFTY SIX DIVE?
There aren't many other operators that offer PADI Diving Courses to the same high standards and quality of service as us, but we realise you have options. So, what do we think makes us the best Koh Tao dive centre?
Here at FIFTY SIX DIVE, we believe in giving each student the best possible experience. Some Koh Tao dive centres teach in groups as big as 8-12. We limit group sizes on all courses and fun diving trips to a maximum of 4 to ensure everybody has the personal attention they need to feel safe and comfortable underwater.
With a location to make every other dive school on Koh Tao envious, FIFTY SIX DIVE is situated in the heart of Sairee Village, directly on the beach. You literally can’t get any closer to the ocean without getting wet, and our west-facing view makes for impressive sunset panoramas after your days of diving on Koh Tao.
The team at FIFTY SIX DIVE are not your average instructors. Selected due to their extensive knowledge and experience, every single one has a minimum rating of Master Scuba Diver Trainer, meaning they have taught several different levels of courses, and have completed hundreds (if not thousands) of dives.
