The Dive Inn
The Dive Inn is one of the most firmly established and respected PADI Dive centers on the beautiful island of Koh Phangan.
We are a friendly bunch with a huge passion for diving in the deep blue. We will ensure you have an amazing trip whether you are a beginner or a experienced scuba diver. The Dive Inn offers small groups, personal attention, quality service, professional and unbiased advice and some of the most experienced and qualified staff on the island. Qualified dive groups are also kept to a minimum, and are also split by experience level (unless requested otherwise) to ensure the best dive experience for all.
How do we do it?
Simple... Diving is fun and we love it, so let us share our passion for the underwater world and change your life!
Situated in the Gulf of Thailand, and located within the Surat Thani province of southern Thailand, Koh Phangan sits between the neighbouring islands of Koh Samui (to the south) and Koh Tao (to the north).
Based at the north of the island, in the fishing village of Chaloklum, The Dive Inn is one of the longest established dive centres on Koh Phangan.
Our northern location means we are ideally placed for access to both the prime local reefs, as well as the main off-shore dive sites such as Sail Rock and Koh Tao.
Here you will find The Dive Inn's main office, right in the heart of the village, opposite the main pier. If you have trouble finding us, just stop and ask someone, everyone knows where we are.
