About Real Divers
Real Divers is a British family run PADI 5 STAR dive center, we run daily dive and snorkeling trips as well as all PADI courses to the Pattaya Coral Islands and Samae San Islands. Real Divers offer the best and easiest option for first time divers who would like to do the PADI discover scuba diving experience or PADI Open water course. The trips start with a 9.30am pick up from your hotel; included in the trip is Professional supervision, 2 dives, rental, lunch/fruit/drinks, photo's (GoPro4), DSD wall chart certification of completion and pick up and return to your hotel (3pm). We run the trips in our 12 metre twin engine speedboat so the time spent to the islands takes 20 minutes instead of an hour plus like the big boats. We can also pull right up to the beach bay and put the equipment on in shallow water instead of putting the equipment on and jumping into deep water and have 200 metre surface swims to the beach such as on the large boats. You wil get to dive on a shallow coral reef and see colourful corals and marine life and a great chance of seeing large turtles. After years of teaching this experience and courses we know we have the best and easiest Discover scuba diving or Open water course in Pattaya, get in touch with us by e-mail we also offer group discounts

Brilliant service from a brilliant outfit. The dive leaders/instructors are very well trained by Neil and Peter. Zoe was a treat to dive with. The location has good dive spots with wrecks and turtles as highlights. I was very impressed as some divers were elderly whilst another was disabled yet was given a safe and wonderful experience. As the boat leaves Jomtien beach in the high season you can avoid lengthy delays as it is a very short walk to the beach. I will definitely do my continued training with Real divers. The name says it all. Neil/Peter...you fellas are stars.

My family and I had a fantastic experience with 'Real Divers'. We cannot recommend them enough. Neil and his team were so welcoming, from the first phone-call to the dive itself. We decided on a beginner Scuba session as half our family had a little experience and half were complete beginners. My wife and I took our two girls aged 11 and 13 and paid 1500baht extra for a private speedboat for ourselves and instructors so that we could take things at our own pace. The dive shop was easy to find and the boat picked us up on Jomtien beach (5mins walk from the dive shop). James and Stan, our superb instructors filled us with confidence and explained each step with patience and clarity. We were able to do the initial skills in a shallow bay on Koh Larn before our second dive further out over the coral. Lunch and snacks were provided, plus lots of friendly chat and excellent service. We know Thailand well and had had a few recommendations of various dive companies. So glad we chose this one. Thanks to all.

5/5 It was such a great experience. Neil and everyone were just excellent in each way of exhaling all little details of the system of diving. I really enjoyed this time, and finally, I took the diving license. Zoi and Ross are amiable, open-minded instructors that I can recommend for everyone interested in diving:)!

The staff at Real Divers is above all others. I have been in Thailand for some time and had not been diving because I had no buddy. When I started searching to get back in the water I messaged every shop I could find asking about diving. Real Divers responded with the most important words to me. "Yes we can take you out, but as you have been out of the water for a year I would recommend doing a refresher first." after my refresher I knew how good they were and decided to get my Dive master Cert with them. Normal trips use a speed boat. We can board just down the street from the shop. The boat is able to be on the water out and back with 2-3 dives in the early afternoon. This allows me to go diving and be home 4 hours away in the same day.
