If Scuba diving amuses you, never miss this chance to dive into the deep ocean in Samae San island.
Get picked up from your hotel at Pattaya at 08:00 AM and meet your instructor at the diving center.
Samae San island trips starts at 08:45 AM, enjoy a short drive for 40 minutes in a taxi to Samae San and on the way get a few snapshots of the Buddha Rock.
From Samae San pier it is a 20 to 30 min boat ride to the Islands, the boat is a small that can accommodate a maximum of 7 divers at a time.
Because Samae San is off the tourist track you very rarely see other divers there so we can basically dive any of the 7 islands we wish to choose. Samae San also has a WW2 ship wreck named the Hardeep which is great for Advanced courses and the PADI Wreck diver specialty
The wreck is 60 metres long and the depth starts at 15 metres and the bottom is at 28 metres, witness the coral growth and sea fans. The marine life is a abundant with large Rays, Barracuda, nudibranches and Turtles.
Some other Samae San dive sites are Koh Chuang, Shark fin Rock, Koh Chan and Hin Chalam and the depths vary from 5 metres to 40 metres.
Indulge in Wreck dive first and then have lunch which is followed by a coral dive or if the current is too strong for the wreck dive, just do 2 coral dives.
Get back to land between 03:00 PM and 04:00 PM and go to one of the many Pattaya watering holes for cold beverages and have a relishing chat about the day.
