Why start your diving career (Padi Go Pro) on Koh Lanta in Thailand?


Firstly divers from Andaman Dive Adventure Lanta, see beautiful corals and many different fish. Divers also see some turtles, sharks (not dangerous ones) and macro life like sea horses & ghost pipe fish. In high season some divers might see a whale shark or a manta. All ADA’s Padi dive instructors and Padi Divemasters love diving so much around Lanta, that we made Koh Lanta our home.

Koh Lanta is Thailands 4rd biggest island, located in the south of Thailand in the Andaman Sea. Secondly because of the islands location, just below Koh Phi Phi, just above Hin Daeng and Hin Muang and just next to Koh Ha. As a result divers will have about 30 dive sites in direct reach. Koh Lanta is easy to access from Phuket, Krabi and Trang. There are many different resorts on Koh Lanta. And also because Koh Lanta has ATMs, banks, 7/11s and many different beautiful beaches and restaurants. Easiest way to get around on Lanta would be by tuktuk. Most beautiful beaches with cosy sunset bars and beautiful sunsets are at Klong Dao and Pra Ae (or Longbeach). In the restaurants you can eat Thai and foreign food. Lastly Koh Lanta also has waterfalls, island trips, Thai cooking courses, a gym, Thai boxing courses and fights and Thai language courses. It is not a party island yet.

In conclusion: great diving for your Padi Internship course & great living on the island. This is the perfect combination for great diving courses and an all around great dive experience !

When to dive on Koh Lanta?

Best period of the year for diving around Koh Lanta is between the 15th of October and the 20th of December and from the 20th of February until the end of April. This is because at that time it is not so hot here and the island is not as busy as it is around Christmas and New Year. The holiday periods in Europe is a more expensive period, because the island is very fully booked around this time of the year. Best chances for manta’s and whale sharks, while diving is from November until end of March.

The Andaman Sea side of Thailand has rainy season from May until the end of September. This means that it could be a bit more wet here then, very quiet and not many diving trips. Koh Lanta’s marine park (Koh Ha, Hin Daeng and Hin Muang and Koh Rok) is also closed for diving and snorkeling from the 15th of May until the 15th of October.

Lanta Dive Sites

From Koh Lanta Andaman Dive Adventure dives and snorkels on these dive sites:
1. Koh Ha
2. Koh Bidas
and 3. Koh Phi Phi
4. Koh Yung
5. Koh Ma
6. Hin Daeng and Hin Muang
7. Koh Rok
8. Anemone Reef, Shark Point and KC Wreck

Different dive sites for different levels of divers

For Padi open water diver students or starting divers Koh Ha, Koh Bidas and Koh Phi Phi are the best dive sites to dive, because of their easier dive conditions (currents, tides, depth and visibility). These dive sites are though also interesting for more experienced divers. At every diving depth you can encounter different fish life. Koh Ha is very good for macro photography, but also has the most frequent whale shark encounters, beautiful soft corals, the Cathedral Cavern and best visibility.

Koh Bidas and Koh Phi Phi has best chances to see leopard sharks and black tip sharks, beautiful gorgonian sea fans and has bigger schools of fish, but less visibility and more divers.

Hin Daeng and Hin Muang have the best chances to see manta’s, have big schools of fish, amazing soft corals and dive depth. Anemone Reef and Shark Point have beautiful soft corals and anemone’s, leopard sharks and macro opportunities. Turtles are easiest to see around Koh Ha, Koh Bidas, Koh Phi Phi and Koh Rok.
