About Us

Here at New Way our philosophy is simple, we’re the first boat on the dive site because our customers always come first. We do this not just by getting you to the dive sites before the crowds but also by providing a safe comfortable and of course fun environment for you to learn to scuba dive. Whether you are a beginner on your PADI open water course or learning to be a PADI professional, you will enjoy developing new skills and confidence with our team at New Way Diving. Here at New Way you get to see the best dive sites Koh Tao has to offer like Chumpon pinnacle, Southwest pinnacle, Shark Island and of course the best dive site in the gulf of Thailand Sail Rock.
Our goal is to give you a personalized touch when you dive with us. New Way Diving has a maximum group size of four people. We do our confined training sessions in the ocean near the beaches of Koh Nang Yuan, Aow Leuk or Mango bay so you get to see fish from your first breaths underwater. We are one of the few dive shops that regularly go to Sail Rock ( twice weekly) so there’s a good chance you’ll be lucky enough to finish your 3rd and 4th dive of the open water course or do your deep dive of the advanced open water course there.

New Way Diving stands out for our personal approach. From the moment you set foot in our PADI 5 Star dive shop you will become part of our family. You will feel welcome. You will feel comfortable. We have a multi-lingual team but we try to teach in English as much as possible. All your training materials are available in your language, but to give you the most options in your future diving, we recommend learning in English. We can provide you with an instructor who speaks your own language and speaks English fluently so you can switch and change when required.

Our service doesn’t just stop when you get out of the water. We employ PADI Instructors and Divemasters that want to socialize and share their knowledge and experience about the island. Our staff will spend their free time with you, exploring the island, seeing a view point, or grabbing a beer with you once you come back to our little ‘temple’ of diving after your day out on the water.

New Way Diving was established in 1994 in a coconut shack on the beach. Our owner Peepan, is one of the few inhabitants of Koh Tao that was actually born on our tropical island and We’re confident that she will show you our little paradise in her own way. Welcome to the family!
