Not the best in Thailand but some ok wrecks. If the diving is first priority, find some where else in Thailand

 

The Hardeep (S.S. Suddhadib) is known to be the best dive around Pattaya.

One morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I don't know

Been diving for 30 years and haven't felt like diving in Pattaya. My new-to-diving friend enjoys it. Given I stay out most nights until 3-4am not sure how I would manage diving also. That is apart from "night dives" hehe, gotta love those.

Due to the limited tidal exchange Pattaya / Sameasan does not enjoy the visability that some of the dive locations further down the gulf get.

It is however blessed with some of the best coral variety in the gulf and the HTMS Kut, HTMS Khram, Hardeep & Petchburi Bremen shipwrecks offer more wreck diving than most areas to recreational divers.

 

Give it a try.

Pop into either Mermaids dive centre in Jontiem or Aquanauts dive centre in Soi 6 and they will put you straight on the available diving.

If it flies, floats or fucks - it will be cheaper to rent !

agree with all of the above + its good to get outta the city for a day around the islands... Pattaya Dive Centre (between Soi 10 and 11 next to subway middle of beach road) has a Wicked fast boat so they set off a little later and get back much sooner... extra 30min or so in bed might help! lol

We had some great visability of the Petchburi Bremen two weeks ago. Loads of marine life as it does not get dived too regularly.

What depths are the wrecks in? Normal recreational down to 30 metres or deeper?

 

Im intending on starting to dive again when I move over in August, however I sold all my gear other than holiday fins and a mask. What are the prices for a single wing and set of Regs like in Pattaya, or would I be better picking up gear in the UK and bringing with me?

Apologies for bumping an old thread but wondering if it is worth doing a dive trip one of the days I am out

 

Any recommendations on good dive operators to check out when in town?

It's always a nice activity having a dive trip.

My best recommendation is go an visit Mermaids, at the end of Thappraya Road just arraiving to Jomtien (left hand at the Hanuman fountain).

For all the divers, we just need to be underwater and why not a great wreck dive. Visibility is not the best but if you having fun in Pattaya only and you are not willing to dive on other places then pattaya wrecks are a good option.

    • 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
