“Even if you never have the chance to see or touch the ocean, the ocean touches you with every breath you take, every drop of water you drink, every bite you consume.”Silvia Earle
had an amazing time learning so much about coral propagation, as well as some debris dives and some great fun dives as well. Dive gear was in great condition, and the whole shop is run professionally but with character (this is not your bland factory dive shop).

When visiting Koh Lipe on holiday, it’s understandable that you may want to spend less time in a classroom and more time in the water. We offer our guests the choice to upgrade their Fun Dives to an Eco-Warrior Dive and do their bit to help save our precious ocean planet!
Over the years, so many of our guests have asked us how they can do more to help protect our beautiful coral reefs around Koh Lipe?
As a Sea Shepherd Dive Partner Center, our experienced dive team are now qualified to take our divers on eco-focused fun dives, where we not only get to observe the fantastic marine life of the Tarutao National Park, but also focus on coral fragment collection and plugging (saving broken coral from dying off). We also focus on underwater trash collection, inclusive of ghost net removal.
When weather conditions permit, we can also take you to visit our coral nurseries to witness for yourselves the progress we have made since its start in 2019!
