There are three main areas of Koh Tao to explore - Sairee, Mae Haad and Chalok Baan Kao. LBD is based in Chalok Baan Kao which is on the south of Koh Tao island. The best way to get around is by renting or buying a motorbike or scooter from the many rental places available on the island.
Sairee - Sairee is home to some amazing restaurants along Sairee beach with beautiful sunset views. Sairee beach also has a dive site nearby called "Sairee Reef" which is a fantastic beginner dive site. Many dive schools will leave the island by boat either from Sairee beach or Mae Haad pier. Sairee is definitely the place to be for the party goers.
Mae Haad - This is where you will depart from the boat when you first come to Koh Tao. This is also where we leave to go explore the local dive sites. Mae Haad also has some amazing restaurants with many being on the beach.
Chalok Baan Kao - Chalok is a lot quieter than Mae Haad and Sairee with gorgeous surroundings and peaceful nights, it is the perfect place to be to get away from the hustle and bustle of other areas of the island. LBD is situated in Chalok on the beach. Enjoy our amazing infinity pool and cool down with some drinks from the bar. Bliss!
Many divers will dive safely because they understand the importance of being safe whilst exploring. You should always dive with a buddy to minimise the possibility of problems occurring such as running out of air. You do get some divers who are not as safe as the rest of us; they could be easily distracted or they may panic in a situation and not know what to do. When diving with LBD, no matter what diving course you do, we will teach you the importance of safety when diving. Your instructor will ensure they teach you how to properly set up your equipment, how to communicate effectively underwater and what to do in an emergency situation. Check your air! This should be the number one thing you regularly do when diving. Be honest, if you breathe through your air quicker than the others, don't be embarrassed - tell your buddy or instructor.
