Small & Personal
Trevor started Sairee Cottage Diving in 2007 with 2 intentions: to provide excellent scuba training and diving tours and to emphasize quality rather quantity.
This is how we can provide such excellent facilities and services.
PADI 5 Star Rating
Sairee Cottage Diving is one of the most respected dive centres on Koh Tao with the highest PADI 5 star rating staffed with our award-winning highly trained and fun-loving team of dive professionals.
Very comfortable Dive Boat
We own 2 dive boats. Small boat and of course our big boat. Big boat is equipped with a large, padded sun deck with lots of space to relax. There’s fresh fruit, filter coffee, tea and cookies to snack on. We also own a Longtail boat that takes us right from the beach to our dive boat. We don’t share space, so when we are ready to go back, we don’t have to wait.
Crystal clear swimming pool
There is no better, safer and easier way to learn scuba diving than in a crystal clear purpose built pool. We have one of those and we have loads of fun teaching our students in it.
New & Well Maintained Gear
All our equipment is maintained to highest levels by Barry our in-house A.S.S.E.T. technician. He makes sure our gear is kept in top shape, all the time. We use Aqualung and ScubaPro equipment, which are the two biggest names in diving. We also provide dive computers and own our own tanks.
Purpose built classrooms
Our modern classrooms are purposed-built with multi-language teaching aids and flat screen TVs. Often we move some of the theory review under the classroom in the comfortable seating area. You can order coffees and snacks that get delivered to you while you are learning.
Making safety our priority
We ensure the highest safety standards in our diving operations. Both boats are fully equipped for emergencies. With 100% Oxygen tanks, first aid kits, floats. All our staff are trained emergency responders. Safety is our highest priority.
Breathe the Purest Air
As the only dive school on Koh Tao with a Pure Air certificate from Bauer Compressors we can guarantee the best quality air in our tanks and ensure the highest safety standard. It is the best quality breathing gas money can buy.
NASA uses Bauer Compressors to supply breathing gases to their astronauts.
Free Dive Insurance for everyone
Scuba diving is a very safe sport. Safety is our top priority so we ensure that all our students and fun divers are fully covered with personal dive insurance during their diving courses and fun dives.
All that for free.
Beach Front Restaurant
Sairee Cottage Diving is located right next to the Sairee Cottage restaurant, one of the most popular beach restaurants on the island. Great food, good price, situated right on Sairee Beach, meters from the sea and just a short walk into the village.
The Pool Bar
Ring out your day at our beautiful, swim-up pool bar with many types of craft beers from around the world, top-shelf sprits, local draft beers and superb cocktails. Share your diving adventures with others and make new friends. Best of all? No Wifi.
Everything is right here
We own everything. We do not share pool or boat space with any other dive schools. So it’s all for our customers to enjoy exclusively.
