Discover Scuba Diving – there is a first time for everything

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater? Can you see yourself glide over the reef between fish and corals and the whole sea come to greet you?

Any day our professional Kon-Tiki instructors can introduce you to Scuba Diving to see if you like it. During the boat ride our PADI instructor will give you a theory lesson in diving. You learn the basics you need to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional diving instructor. One thing you’ll learn is that you really can breathe underwater and whether you like doing that or not.

Nothing beats that feeling of being under water for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to, but after a few minutes of adjustment, most first timers realize how easy scuba diving really is. As this is not an actual PADI scuba certification, during the Discover Scuba Diving experience you’ll learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water and get a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.

Plus, you can get credit! If you like the Discover Scuba Diving program so much you want to continue, we can continue to your PADI Open water certification.

What you waiting for? Sign up today for your next holiday here in Thailand? Weather it is a Koh Lanta, Phuket, Khao Lak or Krabi, it is all the same fun.

New management at Kon-Tiki Khao Lak!

Unfortunately Hans Hansen recently had to leave us as the Manager for Kon-Tiki Khao Lak, after 3 years of working together. We would to thank Hans for this time, and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors. Stepping in to take charge of Kon-Tiki Khao Lak (again) this season is Mikael Nilsson.

Mikael knows both Kon-Tiki and Khao Lak very well already, as he worked as the Base Leader at Kon-Tiki Khao Lak during the first season when the ownership of Kon-Tiki Krabi & Lanta took over Kon-Tiki Phuket & Khao Lak in 2008.

Mikael has been diving since 1989, and has been a PADI dive professional since 1992. He first came to Thailand in 1999 and worked as an Instructor for a couple of years, before moving on to working on Liveaboards at the Similan Islands for 3 years. He then went back home to Sweden and started his own Dive Center. But after 5 years in the cold the longing to go back to Thailand was too much, so he sold his Dive Center and moved back to the Land of Smiles.

He then settled down in Songkhla in Southern Thailand with his wife and now 6 year old son, and has been working on Liveaboards again during the high seasons, with the base in Khao Lak.

Kon-Tiki Thailand is very happy to welcome Mikael back in the family!
