Follow the adventures of Ting, Tong and Tip


At Black Tip we are committed to quality. Throughout your time with us you will be using top of the range materials. All dive gear is serviced or replaced annually, so you can expect to be using fully functional and near new equipment. As well we use only reputable brands: Aqualung, Scuba Pro, Tri Bord, Mares, Saeko Dive, PSI, Techni Sub, Seac Sub. We have these brands and others for sale in our retail shop.

Classes will be held at our unique dive school, built to resemble the underwater world, with a beautiful view of the sea. Throughout your course you will be using original PADI materials which are available in various languages. These materials are yours to keep upon completion of the course.

While going to the dive sites relax on one of our 4 dive boats: Pia, Suksum Waree, Chen Samud and MV Geziena. All of our boats are fully equipped with GPS, fish finder, fathometer, first aid kit and DAN oxygen kits. On board you’ll be able to relax in the shade or catch some rays on the sundeck. We provide snacks and drinks while you’re waiting out your surface interval.

Pia is used for our morning dive tours. At 18 meters in length with a 4 meter beam, she’ll get you to the dive sites in no time with her 325 HP engine. And with a capacity of 25 persons she offers plenty of room to move about. For larger groups our boat Chen Samud is available. Truly the Ocean Expert, as she’s called in Thai, Chen can handle any waters with a 20 meter hull length, 5 meter beam and 275 HP engine.

For afternoon trips divers and snorkelers will go out with Suksum Waree. The baby of our fleet at 16 meters, she’s efficient at navigating in close quarters.

Our newest edition is MV Geziena, also named after another of Ko Dam’s daughters. With a 450 HP engine Geziena can go anywhere! She has a 24 meter by 5 meter hull with a capacity of 45 persons. Geziena will be taking snorkelers and divers on our special full and half day trips to Ang Thong Marine Park, Sail Rock, South West and Chumporn.

Although our customers are insured under our policy for any boat accidents, they are not covered for diving or snorkeling accidents. We highly recommend that divers purchase their own scuba diving insurance through either DAN or PADI. Additionally, as members of Badalveda Diving Medical Network and SSS Recompression Chamber Network our customers are eligible for discounted hyperbaric treatment. Please contact us for details.

Throughout the week we dive at a variety of the 30+ dive sites surrounding Koh Tao including the top three sites: South West Pinnacle, Chumporn Pinnacle and Sail Rock. For certified fun divers there are several options to choose from.

Morning / Afternoon Dive Tours

In the mornings we do 2 dives from the boat. We’ll have a minimum 1 hour surface interval between dives on the boat. Boat dives are priced on a sliding scale per person. These prices include all equipment and DM guided dive tours. In the afternoons there is also diving available. Dives in the afternoon will be to shallower sites than the morning dives.
