PADI is the most renowned scuba diving training organisation. No matter where you go in the world, your PADI certification will be recognised and accepted.

Performance Based Learning

To earn your PADI certification, you progress at your own pace and only move on with the course once you demonstrated mastery of all skills required. PADI courses are built to allow you to do so in an encouraging, fun and well-supported learning environment.

Highest Educational Standards

All PADI programs are monitored closely for worldwide consistency and quality. No other diver training organisation maintains the same level of proactive approach to quality management. This ensures all courses meet PADI’s high standards as well as the divers’ expectations.

Top-Notch Learning Materials

PADI materials are designed using state-of-the-art technology and pedagogic theories to provide a comprehensive and fun learning experience. Complete the self-study part in the way that works best for you, choosing your materials from a variety of options: online programs, tablet-based apps, manuals and workbooks.

Why Coral Grand Divers?

PADI 5 Star Rated Organisation

Coral Grand Divers is a well-organised and safety oriented PADI 5 Star IDC Resort, offering diving from Koh Samui and Koh Tao. To qualify for this rating a dive shop must meet elevated service and business standards. We are proud to hold this prestigious rating since 2003 and we keep improving every year to live up to all our customers’ expectations.

Dedicated PADI Instuctors

At Coral Grand Divers we pride ourselves on an excellent level of customer service and professionalism. Our PADI Instructors are not only fun but also very patient, safety oriented and love to share their passion for diving.

Free accommodation

All our PADI courses are conducted from Koh Tao. The course price therefore also includes accommodation in a basic but clean en-suite fan room, no dorms! The diving rooms are on the beachfront premises of the 3 Star Coral Grand Resort, so you can enjoy the 2 swimming pools, beach lounges and towel service.

Great Beachfront Location

The dive centre and the diving accommodation are nestled in a beautiful palm tree garden at the North end of Sairee Beach, Koh Tao. The centre of Sairee is only a short walk away, where you can find a variety of restaurants, bars and shops. Why not spend your time away from Koh Samui exploring the heart of Koh Tao?

There's nothing wrong with enjoying looking at the surface of the ocean itself, except that when you finally see what goes on underwater,you realize that you've been missing the whole point of the ocean. Staying on the surface all the time is like going to the circus and staring at the outside of the tent.
