Join the team at New Way Diving to experience our varied and exceptionally affordable fun diving.
As we have two custom fitted dive boats, both offering up to five dives a day, we’re never overcrowded. We also make sure to keep the Koh Tao Dive Sites as varied as possible, meaning that you get to visit all of the best dive sites that Koh Tao has to offer, rather than constantly visiting the same ones.
Some of what we consider our key benefits are as follows…
- Dive without crowds – We rise early to get our divers to Koh Tao’s Dive morning dive sites first!
- Dive the best dive sites – With two boats, we go to more places and guarantee Sail Rock (the best dive site in the Gulf of Thailand) twice per week.
- Dive Longer – We dive up to one hour and we also have 15-litre tanks available if needed.
Our Daily Schedules
Morning Dives – 5.45 am – 10.30 am
Every morning we depart at 5:45 am from the dive shop and head out for two dives. Our morning dives are the deepest of the day, with usually a trip to either Chumphon Pinnacles, Southwest Pinnacle, Shark Island, the HTMS Sattakut Wreck, Hin Wong Pinnacle, Green Rock and similar. We will return to the dive shop around 10:30 am allowing for either an early lunch before our afternoon trip, or leaving you to enjoy the rest of your day on beautiful Koh Tao!
Every Tuesday and Friday we head to Sail Rock for a 3 dive trip, providing the weather is suitable.
Afternoon Dives – 11:45 – 17:00
Our afternoon sessions depart the shop at 11:45 for two dives. These afternoon dives are normally at the shallower dive sites around the island, for example, Twin Peaks, Japanese Gardens, Aow Leuk, White Rock and similar locations. Depending on your experience, we often offer certified divers the opportunity for a drop off dive, so that you have a longer one-way dive into where the boat is moored.
Night Dives – 18:30 – 20:30
We go night diving whenever people want to go night diving! We depart the shop at around 18:30 depending on the time of year, and head to one of the many dive sites around Koh Tao.
Sail Rock Dives – 05:20 – 15:00
Every Tuesday and Friday we depart for Sail Rock for a full day of diving with 3 dives. The first two dives take place at Sail Rock, and the third dive will be at one of the other beautiful locations that we will pass on the return journey back to Koh Tao. This could include Southwest Pinnacle or Shark Island. Each of these sites is suited for a novice or experienced diver and offers a wonderful day of adventure day to those that join.
We also offer discounted Nitrox Courses for those joining these trips, which will then allow you to maximize your dive times while at these sites. The trip includes Breakfast, Lunch and Refreshments, which can be enjoyed up to our return at around 15:00.
