About Pattaya Diving
The northern gulf of Thailand offers divable conditions all year round so you can still visit coral reefs and wreck sites here when all other dive locations in Thailand close for the monsoon season.
The Weather is always warm and sunny even when we it rains and the water temperature very rarely drops below 30c. Visibility conditions can vary at different times of the year, being so high up in the Thai Gulf the Islands here don’t receive a full tidal exchange to make for crystal clear waters daily, that said though, on a good day the visibility is good and you can find as good a selection of interesting aquatic and coral life here as anywhere else diving in Thailand.
Pattaya Diving Sites
Diving Pattaya offers lots of different diving oppurtunities from relaxing coral bay dives, deep coral drift dives and as we are located in the wreck diving capital of Thailand, plentiful wreck diving.
