About Lanta Diver
When you arrive on Lanta you will find that there is nobody who does not know what Lanta Diver is and where we are. We have been on Koh Lanta since 1999 and have become a bit of an institution on the island. What once started with four enthusiasts and a kind of "hole in the wall" company is today one of the largest employers on the island. You will find us right in the centre of Saladan, on the main street where we have our dive centre, our booking centre and our classrooms. Across the street we have our equipment room with 100 full sets of equipment for rent, our service center with our own fantastic technician (an absolute magician with all dive equipment and all technical appliances), and our IDC classroom with separate study.
We call ourselves Scandinavian Lanta Diver PADI 5 Star IDC Center. The five stars are the result of many years' efforts to turn Lanta diver into a complete and modern dive center with all the facilities required in order to maintain the very highest standards; indeed, the IDC stands for Instructor Development Center and shows that we are one of the exclusive dive centres permitted to train divers all the way to instructor level.
The fact that we are associated with PADI means that those of you who want to learn to dive or further your dive career will do so in the world?s largest dive organization. Diving within such a large organization does not mean that you will necessarily see more fish or more beautiful corals than with other dive outfits, but should you decide to carry on with your recreational diving or even decide to work within the diving industry, PADI offers unique possibilities to do so all over the world.
Over the years we have become quite well known far beyond the borders of Thailand: probably the reason we have more and more guests each year. This said, we are eager to keep the personal touch and service and do not want to become or be looked upon as a ?diving factory?. We always work in small groups and be you a beginner, furthering your education, a fun diver or specialist, we always work with a maximum of 4 divers/students to each Dive Master or Instructor.
So, whether you are a serious diver or not, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us when visiting Lanta. We promise to do our best in order for you to get the most out of your holiday.
