About Samui Dive Tribe

We are the only PADI Dive Resort that can provide Diver Training/Accommadation on-site and are located in the heart of the iconic Fishermans village Bophut in Koh Samui.

For Beginners we offer the PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience which is a day trip to Koh Tao to try diving for the first time. If you wish to acquire a PADI diving licence, we teach the most popular PADI diving course, the PADI Open Water Course. If you are limited in vacation time available but still want to get a certification, we also teach the PADI Scuba Diver that can later be upgraded to the PADI Open Water Course.

For Certified Divers, We have Fun Dive packages available daily, to the best dive sites in the Gulf of Thailand including Koh Tao, Chumpon Pinnacle and Sail Rock.

For PADI Open Water Divers we can also offer further development or education depending on your vacation time available.
We have a range of choices from the PADI Adventure Diver Course, the PADI Advanced Open Water Course up to the PADI Rescue Diver and if you want to branch out on your diver knowledge, we have a variety of PADI Specialty Diver Courses.

For those who are further on in their Education and are already a PADI Rescue Diver and are a PADI Emergency First Response, there are two paths to choose from:

  1. The PADI Divemaster Program- Join the ranks of the Professionals with the first stepping stone into a new career in the dive industry.
  2. The PADI Master Scuba Diver Program- Broaden your dive knowledge and become a well rounded diver with 5 dive specialties needed to gain your PADI Master Scuba Diver Certification.

In delivering any of the available experiences we have our three core principles at heart: Safety, Fun and The Environment. We use these core principles as key initiatives to help us maintain the high standard people have come to expect from Samui Dive Tribe.
