It feels strange the first time when you learn scuba in Koh Tao. Your mask. Your awkward gear, a bit heavy. You ease into the water and your face slips below the surface. Inhale; the air comes with a reassuring hiss, and for the first time, you breathe underwater. In moments, you forget your mask. Your equipment transforms to light and agile, and you’re free like you’ve never experienced before. With that first underwater breath, the door open to a different world. Not a world apart, but different nonetheless.
Go through that door. Your life will never be the same.
No one but you can say what calls you to scuba diving. If you seek adventure, you’ll find plenty, whether it’s in a sunken ship as you uncover its secrets, in a far corner of the world amid other peoples and cultures, or in your backyard – closer than you imagined possible.
If you love nature, you’ve come to the right place. No other environment approaches the abundance, diversity and vibrance of a pristine coral reef. You can see more different species in ten minutes there than in ten hours in the most unspoiled wildernesses above water. But with time, you’ll discover that even unlikely places that seem empty and sterile to the inexperienced eye – like a lake or flooded quarry – teem with intriguing organisms – a reminder that nature’s imagination exceeds ours.
If discovery drives you, welcome to inner space. It’s somewhat cliché, yet true, that we know the surface of the moon better than we know the bottoms of the oceans. Even at the most popular dive sites, you’ll see things most people never see and go where most people never go. Even with hundreds of dives under your belt, visiting a new dive site thrills you with discovery, and visiting a familiar site is a bit like coming home.
And Learn Scuba in Koh Tao means rising to new challenges. It’s one of those rare activities that delivers adrenaline and intensity, or serenity and peace. You can take on challenges that require training, planning, equipment and focus: searching for and recovering lost objects, descending to 30 metres/100 feet (If your diving level permits) or exploring your favorite dive site after sunset. Or you can drift along in some of the world’s most tranquil and beautiful settings, with your biggest immediate worry whether you want to stop and photograph that starfish or not. Either way, diving grows with you – there’s always something new to see, somewhere new to explore, some new way to enjoy the experience. No other endeavor so easily matches exactly what you’re up for, right now, tomorrow and ten years from now. You cannot outgrow it.
You’re probably seen photos, television and films about diving, but until you do it yourself, you can’t really understand what it’s like. Nothing on earth matches the sensations your experience – the thrill of breathing underwater, the freedom of “weightlessness” and unique sights and sound.
