About Davy Jones Locker Diving Koh Tao

UPDATE: our former shop located in Sairee has now moved to Mae Haad! We are now located just around the corner from the pier at the bottom of Down Road. 

Davy Jones Locker is a PADI 5 Star Career Development Centre and has been helping people learn to dive since 1996.

Founded in 1996, DJL Diving is a Western-owned dive shop on tropical Koh Tao island, Thailand. We are enthusiastic about all things aquatic and devoted to protecting our marine life and environments. The DJL crew is professional, passionate, well trained and ready to take your diving to the next level. 

We employ western diving staff (PADI instructors and PADI Divemasters) the numbers of Instructors and Divemasters does change depending on the time of year and they come from all over the world, but are mostly European, Australian and American.

Our Dive Team are hand-picked with some very experienced instructors, some with over 30 years teaching experience. With this comes expertise in a wide range of diving activities. Our staff have experience teaching recreational diving courses, divemaster internships, instructor development courses, wreck and technical diving, compressor & boat maintenance, first aid & CPR, and expedition planning. 

We offer eLearning PADI theory for courses Open Water, Nitrox plus many other PADI Specialty courses and the Instructor Course (IDC).  There are plenty of language options available to complete eLearning. Most of our scuba diving courses are conducted in English but we also currently have Spanish-speaking instructors available. We are a registered PADI Career Development Centre (no. 36338).

DJL Diving is not the largest dive shop on Koh Tao, however, we are well known and consistently busy. We pride ourselves on providing a great diving experience that is more personal and tailored to your needs, no matter your certification level. On our dive boat, we train our divers to be safe, competent and how to utilize proper technique. 

Additionally to the recreational dive courses offered here at DJL, we have a strong focus geared towards technical deep diving and shipwreck exploration. We are dedicated to running expeditions seeking out undiscovered shipwrecks, isolated pinnacles and coral reefs throughout Thailand.
