Diving Koh Tao

From whale sharks to clownfish to bull sharks and everything in between – diving Koh Tao, with its clear turquoise water, is an underwater videographers dream come true! With many protected reefs, DJL Diving can show you wrecks, reefs, walls and crystal blue water – all in the same day, and all packed with marine life of different shapes and sizes. There is a rumour going around the internet right now that Thailand's reefs are dying, and are closed to scuba diving.

This is simply not true – while a recent bleaching event has distressed some areas and caused some other marine park closures, only two of the affected reefs are considered dive sites and neither are near around Koh Tao. So, you are free to experience the remarkable marine life that is Koh Tao almost unconstrained. While you are here, you will see that our ecosystem is already recovering vibrant reefs filled with colourful life are still the standard when diving Koh Tao, and DJL Diving works hard to encourage environmentally-aware diving practices.



  • Koh Tao island is like paradise on earth. If you don’t like cheap alcohol, great food and beautiful surroundings don’t bother.

  • A trip around the world was hijacked, a boyfriend was (temporarily) abandoned, and a lifestyle was discovered the minute my feet were again in the DJL.
