Diving in Pattaya


Recommended Posts

I thought it's better to do an extra-thread for this topic... hope I wasn't wrong :GoldenSmile1:


soooo are there nice diving locations in Pattaya? I did my license last year in Koh Tao and I thought that it's maybe nice to go diving sometimes during the day... so if anybody dives sometimes in Pattaya, I would be to grateful if you tell me some of your experiences!

The thing is... I just wanna use the whole time when I am in a beautiful country like Thailand, not just the nights ;)

lots of divers.


If you search the form on diving you'll dig up tons on this.

I answered the same question a few days back.


Patts is a big dive location. has been establised a longtime and has many good dive schools and instructors. Many boat going on from patts and other ports around the area.


visibility is good, and some wrecks to dive on.


Well worth a go.


Downside is the seas around pats have been overfished for years. One species of starfish is everwhere, and theres a few fairly common small fish. Most other stuff has been eaten or spearfished.

You need to travel to more protected waters to see more exotic wildlife.


In my opinion its worth doing for a day. then move on to Phuket if you want to see more diverse wildlife.

Vis is Ok but there are lots of floaties in the water. Dont dive Koh Larn as you will have constant jet ski's going overhead.


Go to Pattaya to bang ho's..Go everywhere else to enjoy a good dive.

My view is that Pattaya is placed perfectly for a base to jump off from. Within a 1000 kilometers there are a lot of great dive locations.
