Kon-Tiki is an award winning diving and snorkeling center where involvement is the key theme. Awards: In 2008, PADI and Project AWARE awarded Kon-Tiki Thailand with the prestigious ”PADI/Project AWARE Marine Environmental Award” and in 2009 we were among the three finalist 2009. In 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009, Project AWARE has awarded Kon-Tiki Thailand with the “Project AWARE Environmental Award”. We are the only dive center in the world who has been awarded this for 4 years in a row. 2012 we got an award for “Outstanding Contribution to the Diving Industry”. Our key values: CARE – KNOWLEDGE – SAFETY is evident in everything we do. Care: Since we live to show people the wonders of our seas, we feel that it is crucial that we take responsibility for how we interact with that environment. This includes minimizing wear and tear of these fragile environments, but also educating ourselves and our customers, about how we can be part of the solution, rather than part of the problem. The value of caring is also relevant in all interrelationships between staff, guests and people we interact with. It is a basis from which we try to operate at all times.

Frank is the BEST instructor we could have asked for!

I took the Scuba diving course with My sister and we could not have asked for a better instructor than Frank. First, Frank has over 20 years of experience, so that assured us that... read more

I took the Scuba diving course with My sister and we could not have asked for a better instructor than Frank. First, Frank has over 20 years of experience, so that assured us that we were in good hands. Second, he was SUPER patient whenever we struggled and it always felt like it was a private course (which it wasn't).... More

Incredibly well-executed trip. This is the only dive shop that I visited with 3 dives in a day. Did scuba diving at Koh Haa. Another diver and myself took a refresher course as well. Every pair of divers gets an instructor, and the staff, including the local Thai boat driver and cook, were all warm, resourceful, and a pleasure to... More

Book your dive through Kon Tiki !! We have been on a few diving experiences over 15 years and this by far the best boat, best crew,tastiest food, best equipment ever... The little touches that made the difference, amazing keep going guys - only perhaps if there is a way to make sure the food stays warmer.

I did my advanced dive course at Kon Tiki and it was very well organised. The Swedish owner has put together a very nice crew of people and my instructor was Frank Adriaensen from Belgium. It was two people and one instructor and Frank and the restgave me a very safe feeling. A lot of experience and you can see... More

Almost speechless at how good the team was and what a great day they gave us. The booking from the dive shop perfectly translated into reality on the boat, nothing missed. The pickup and drop off service all perfect. The dive instructor assigned to us, Janos, was really friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Thai-mama is an angel... More

What would be a holiday to lovely warm waters with coral reefs without incorporating diving! Not by any means wishing to boast, but it is important to mention so as to put this report into perspective- we have been to a lot of different dive sites around the world and have to say this was the best experience we have...

Planned to dive a day, ended up doing three. A fantastic spacious new boat, a lovely crew (I'm gonna miss you, Thai-Mama!) that pampers and feeds you all day and dive sites that count as some of the best worldwide made our Kon-Tiki experience more than amazing. The dive masters and instructors are absolute champions, especially Frank and Martino (Ciao... More
