I took my open water dive course in Pattaya through Aquanauts Dive Centre and the course was great. The diving in the area was OK but I found the diving around Koh Samui and Koh Tao to be far superioir.


Aquanauts is conveniently located on Soi 6 as well, so after a day of diving in the water you can easily stop for some relaxation at the end of the day. :Dance:

I went diving in Pattaya in 1987 and it was pretty devoid of sea life back then. I do have one picture of a sea turtle we saw. Unless things have changed drastically since then there are better spots. I have always heard that a group of islands not too far from Phuket are a good spot. I can't remember the name of the islands tho.

I need a woman who loves me for my money but doesn't understand math too well

The Similan Islands off Phuket are far and away the best diving in Thailand.Diving anywhere in the Gulf of Siam is very ordinary.

I had a few dive trips in the mid 90's, mostly saw dead coral and a few reef fish,

went fishing with a few guys in August last year and one of them told me he had done some diving recently and the dive sites had improved a lot.

Tighter controls now and less poaching and explosives used when fishing probably has improved things

There's no doubt that the diving in Pattaya, compared to what is offered off Phuket, is pretty average, but it does allow you to have a daytime diversion.


Some of the best diving would be the outer islands where visibility and marine life is noticeably better. Also, there are now a number of wreck dives available to those with suitable certification:




I've dived the Hardeep a number of times and it has been a very good dive with nice coral growth and marine life. A word of caution though that this wreck does experience strong currents during the descent and ascent but once on the wreck, the wreck it's shields you from the currents.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6
