We now guarantee that even if you are the only person that wants to go as a certified diver, we will send one of our two boats for you at no additional charge, providing the weather is suitable. Currently, we are the only school on the island that offers such a guarantee.

From Koh Tao, it takes two hours to reach the dive site of Sail Rock, and so it makes sense to make a full day of it! This is why New Way Diving offers each of our customers two dives at Sail Rock during the trip. We’ll then jump back on the boat for some lunch while cruising slowly towards Southwest Pinnacle, Shark Island or Samran Pinnacle, for our third dive of the day before we make our return to Mae Haad pier for around 4pm.

Breakfast, lunch, soft drinks, tea, coffee, water, biscuits and fruit are included to make your day with us as pleasurable as possible.

On a normal day, we depart at 6 am, and head to Sail Rock, enjoying a bit of breakfast along the way. We then complete two dives there, with air consumption being the main limiting factor.

We’ll then jump back on the boat for some lunch while cruising slowly towards Southwest Pinnacle, Shark Island or Samran Pinnacle, for our third dive of the day before we make our return to Mae Haad pier for around 4pm.

Everything that you need is included in this trip (equipment, breakfast, lunch, snacks), and it’s a day that everyone loves, staff and customers alike since it is a day unlike any other!

This is a Highly Recommended Trip for your time on Koh Tao!

Aside from the incredible diving that Sail Rock offers, the fun and excited vibe on the boat during Sail Rock days is infectious! Fun, laughs and friendships are bound to happen. mainly due to the fact that with a full day on the boat there is a lot of interaction between everyone.

If desired we can also supply Nitrox at no extra charge to maximise your time at depth for those certified. If you’re not Nitrox Certified, why not join our Nitrox Course every offered every night of the week. The course is just over two hours long and we will give you free nitrox for your dives the next day!

What is unique about New Way Diving?

  • Small Groups – Unlike some of the larger dive schools, New Way prefer a small and friendly approach. There is a maximum group size of 4 students to 1 instructor, which assures that each student receives the necessary attention.
  • Environmentally Active – New Way Diving are extremely active in making the island of Koh Tao a better place for creatures great and small. They host regular beach and reef clean-ups which you can get involved with while you’re there!
  • No Swimming Pool Learning – All of the training at New Way takes place in the sea in calm, warm shallow waters to begin with. Why spend hours in a swimming pool watching hairs and plasters float past in order to then go diving in the sea? Instead, you can start immediately in the ocean and watch the beautiful marine life from your first breath underwater!
  • More Dives – Because of the ‘straight to sea’ policy, New Way students leave Koh Tao with more dives than normal since there is a short diving tour after each skill segment is complete, meaning that you will finish having completed up to six dives instead of the usual four. This gives you more chance to explore the amazing dive sites around Koh Tao.
  • Sail Rock! – Unlike other dive schools, New Way dive at Sail Rock, the best dive site in the Gulf of Thailand EVERY DAY. This is now a standard part of every Open Water Course, weather permitting!
