It’s been more than six years since Scuba Birds dive centre was established on Koh Tao and also Samui. A diving hobby became to a job to the team and they could think of nothing better!
We speak to team member Dmitry Sobolev who says,
“We can share our love for the Ocean with other people by introducing them to the underwater beauty of coral reefs and an amazing aquatic life of the tropical sea in the Gulf of Thailand”.
Scuba Birds is a PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Center, it means they provide the highest level of dive education from beginners to Diving Instructor level PADI programs.
What is the concept of Scuba Birds?
The Personal attitude to each of our guests. We think this is the most important thing in the diving industry because diving connects people.
What do you offer ?

Starting from Discover Scuba Diving program – first step into the Ocean, first breath underwater, continue with Open Water Diver course, Advanced OWD, Rescue Diver course, Emergency First Response course and many specialty courses.
We also provide leadership level courses: Divemaster and Dive Instructor courses.
We run small groups which help people learn how to dive and enjoy fun dives in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere.
What is different about Scuba Birds?
We have multiple locations in Koh Tao and Samui which allow people choose the island to dive. Transfers from the hotel and back. We have a really nice and comfortable diving boat for diving and snorkeling on the dive sites around Koh Tao and Nang Yuan Islands. A beachfront dive shop in Koh Tao with sandy beach and home reef for snorkeling.
What is the atmosphere and how do you want people to feel whilst enjoying their time with you?
Scuba Birds is a Family style diving center. Everyone who comes to our shop gets personal attention from the very beginning until the end of the dive course or dive program. That’s why we have hundreds of our guests returning back for a continued education program or for fun dives. Many people do it a few times a year.

What do you enjoy about the island of Koh Tao?
It’s very small but such a beautiful island. Gorgeous sandy beaches, hills surrounded by tropical jungles, amazing sunsets on the west coast and brilliant sunrises on the east. Bays with crystal clear water on the north and south of the island. Nightlife with fire shows on the beach. That’s why we love Koh Tao so much.
