 DIVE SITES

At French Kiss Divers, we share the expression “Early Birds, catch the worm”, but more like early divers, get the action first!

Indeed we are living early to be the firsts on dive site, we are working with two boats so we can go and explore all the best dive sites on koh tao and accommodate our divers so they don’t go always to the same dive sites.

We are also offering 2 trips weekly to sail rock and we are the only one to do it on koh tao with New Way divers.

All our guides are certified Divemaster or Instructor, and with have a policy of 4 divers per guide max. We do groups level, based of certification level but also experience, to make sure everybody has the best time.
