Diving in Koh Tao, with our diving center Nitro, is an amazing experience of the crystalline waters, but more for all the animals you can see. Diving in Koh Tao can be possible at all types of levels, from try scuba to advanced divers, or more. 

Diving can be just as dangerous as driving or jogging. We are underwater where we need specific equipment to be able to breathe, which is why it is important to do it under the supervision of professionals following safety regulations. Various studies conducted in the US, Canada, or Japan show that the statistical probability of death while diving is 2-3 per 100,000 dives.

Our policy at Nitro Dive is to teach you the entire diving procedure so that you have all the necessary knowledge before entering the water. Our courses are small (less than 4 people), the experience is more personalized and the error rate is minimal.

The practice of diving, today, is limited to people over 8 years of age and has no maximum age limit, as long as it does not have physical and/or mental complications. Depending on the country, it is necessary to undergo a medical check-up to certify that you are fit and that diving is safe. In other countries, such as Thailand, you only have to fill out a form. We review it in detail, and if there are 1 or more existing medical conditions, it will be necessary to obtain a medical certificate.

SSI (Scuba Schools International) and PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) are organizations featured to diving certificates. 

SSI emphasizes flexibility and adaptation of teaching to each student, offering free digital materials and fostering local diving communities. On the other hand, PADI is characterized for having a standard approach, with educative material worldwide, but it has an additional price. Both organizations are recognized around the world, but depends on you what teaching style you prefer.

Nitro Dive has a very clear policy to ensure the enjoyment of all its divers. Less experienced divers will enjoy the knowledge of a diving professional, while more advanced divers can enjoy their diving excursions with other divers of the same level. In our diving center, Nitro Dive, divers who need to do a refresh course are:

  • Certified divers with less than 20 dives, with the date of their last dive being between 6 months and a year.
  • Certified divers with less than 50 dives and more than a year without diving.
  • Certified divers who feel the need for additional attention and want to start with basic exercises such as equipment assembly, mask and regulator emptying, air exchange, etc.

The safety and enjoyment of all our divers is the most important thing to us and we make no exceptions to avoid accidents and bad experiences.

When breathing compressed air under the sea we absorb nitrogen bubbles, before traveling we have to wait for them to leave our body. Having done 1 dive you have to wait 18 hours, if you do 2 or more you must wait 24 hours.

Tuvimos super buena experiencia con Nitro para sacarnos el Open Water. Nos toco de instructor Nahuel que era encantador , siempre dispuesto a resolver nuestras dudas, a animarnos, la verdad es que lo hizo todo super fácil. En general fue una experiencia super divertida que te hace querer meterte de lleno en el mundo del buceo. Mil gracias a todo el equipo!

Fuimos a Koh Tao a hacer nuestro curso de advance y no pudimos elegir mejor! Nitro es una gran familia que va más allá de un club de buceo, pero sobre todo gracias a Jorge que con su paciencia y profesionalidad ha conseguido que demos un gran salto en nuestros conocimientos de buceo. Gracias por todo, por hacerlo tan fácil y por poner el broche final a un viaje inolvidable! Repetiríamos una y mil veces 🙂

Experiencia brutal y 100% recomendable en Nitro! Solo íbamos a hacer un bautismo de buceo, ya que no sabíamos si nos gustaría, y acabamos sacándonos el Open. Nahui fue nuestro instructor y nos trasmitió muchísima calma y seguridad desde el primer minuto que entramos en el agua. Nos ha contagiado su pasión por el mar y gracias a él hemos descubierto un nuevo mundo que nos encanta. Cada inmersión fue única y la disfrutamos a cada minuto. Desde el primer momento nos hicieron sentir como en casa. ¡Volveremos!😊

Nuestra experiencia en Nitro ha sido de lo más increíble. Mis amigas y yo íbamos a hacer un bautismo, ya que nunca antes habíamos buceado, pero el trato con los instructores, su cercanía y la tranquilidad y buen rollo que nos transmitieron, nos llevaron a sacarnos el Open de cabeza. Nahui fue nuestro instructor del curso y el que nos hizo enamorarnos del buceo. Nos ayudó muchísimo la calma con la que nos explicó todo bajo el agua. Hicimos también un Fun Dive con Izan, que nos transmitió su absoluta pasión por el mundo marino. Íñigo también estuvo presente y se preocupó de que estuviéramos pasando un buen rato. En general, todos los instructores son lo más!!!! Nos hicieron sentir como en casa. ¡Volveremos!

Excelentes profesionales, mejores personas. Hicimos el “bautismo” con nahuel, nos explico a la perfección todos los ejercicios y tuvimos una gran experiencia, lamentamos no tener más tiempo para sacar el certificado de “open water” recomiendo 100 %

Es mi segunda vez en la isla, decidí cambiar a Nitro para hacer el curso avanzado de buceo. Mi experiencia con ellos ha sido increíble, sin duda ninguna volveré a la isla y por supuesto elegiré NITRO!!. Los instructores son todos de 10, son súper profesionales, buen rollo y te hacen sentir del grupo. Hice algunas inmersiones con Andrés que es un tío espectacular y la formación Advanced con Izan, el cual quiero agradecerle como me ha hecho sentir durante la formación, pendiente en todo momento para que pudiese mejorar la técnica y explicándome todo con detalle. Muchísimas gracias a todos. Nos vemos la próxima vez

De toda la isla recomiendo Nitro para hacer buceo al 100%. Todo el equipo es súper agradable y en especial hacer una mención a nuestro instructor Andrés. Desde el primer momento nos ha ayudado a sentirnos seguras dentro del agua y con ganas de seguir sacándonos cursos. Solo íbamos a hacer el bautismo y acabamos con el Open Water y dos inmersiones más. Gracias Andrés!!! Eres el mejor 💓💓 ¡Volveremos!
