About Kon-Tiki Diving & Snorkeling Center - Lanta
Kon-Tiki is an award winning diving and snorkeling center where involvement is the key theme. Awards: In 2008, PADI and Project AWARE awarded Kon-Tiki Thailand with the prestigious ”PADI/Project AWARE Marine Environmental Award” and in 2009 we were among the three finalist 2009. In 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009, Project AWARE has awarded Kon-Tiki Thailand with the “Project AWARE Environmental Award”. We are the only dive center in the world who has been awarded this for 4 years in a row. 2012 we got an award for “Outstanding Contribution to the Diving Industry”. Our key values: CARE – KNOWLEDGE – SAFETY is evident in everything we do. Care: Since we live to show people the wonders of our seas, we feel that it is crucial that we take responsibility for how we interact with that environment. This includes minimizing wear and tear of these fragile environments, but also educating ourselves and our customers, about how we can be part of the solution, rather than part of the problem. The value of caring is also relevant in all interrelationships between staff, guests and people we interact with. It is a basis from which we try to operate at all times.
