Overview
More
An extraordinary diving, and tour operator for those who wish get away from the crowds and experience diving in a private, small group setting. All diving courses are available from beginner to professional. We offer diving and luxury speedboat trips around Koh Tao, to Sail Rock, and Ang Tong Marine Park. Catering especially to underwater image makers as we have been doing in these waters for 18 years. If you don't wish shoot images then don't worry, this is still the best option for divers who want to experience the best underwater marine life around. We operate our own dive boats with plenty of space and the most experienced crew. All courses are offered with maximum ratios of 2 students to 1 instructor. Family, friends, weddings, honeymoons, and group packages are available.

Had a brilliant dive with ACE marine. Very nice people. One of our friends couldn't swim and he had no problem diving when he was shown a few skills. Went in a group of five and had a very fun and relaxed day.
