That time of the year is coming when the weather changes and diving on the west coast of Thailand becomes some of the best diving you can do! Davy Jones Locker is proud to announce that we will be officially opening our brand new PADI 5 star dive resort on the beautiful and untouched island of Koh Lipe. Koh Lipe is one of the most southern islands on the west coast of Thailand and located in the Andaman Sea. It is a very small island with everything (including it’s 3 beautiful beaches) in walking distance from our dive shop. Currently our new shop’s opening date will be November 1st, so if you feel like you can’t make it to Koh Tao, but are heading south to Malaysia, take a few days and catch a speed boat over to the island for some pristine diving. Though Koh Lipe offers a lot of the same marine life and corals of Koh Tao, you will find many different species of fish like the beautiful lion fish to leopard sharks and sometimes even manta rays. Koh Lipe also offers a new and more advance style of diving that is drift diving. Nothing is better then dropping down under the sea to ‘Peter Pan’ it (as I like to call it) through some of the best dive site on Thailand’s west coast. We will have a group of multilingual staff that can teach courses in English, Italian, Spanish, and French. Currently we offer accommodation from dormitories (free with any dive course) to private air-con twin rooms with en-suite bathrooms. For those of you who have already booked diving courses in Koh Tao, no worries. All previous DJL students will get a 10% discount off all courses booked with our Koh Lipe shop. So if you want to get away from the hustle and touristy destinations like Koh Phi Phi or Phuket, go a bit further south for the real paradise experience and some breathtaking views underwater.
