Kata Beach – Single Beach Dive – October to May only

In the past Kata Beach has been relatively ignored as a serious dive site for experienced / certified divers.

However as of through late 2017 and early 2018 there has been an explosion in marine life there and it has now become a relatively nice and unique dive for divers are looking for something different.

Please be aware that this is a shallow dive site and visibility is not always the best. Dives are best planned around high or slack tide when the water movement is the least and visibility is higher. Slack high tide is the optimal time.

The dive at times can provide a range of unique creatures that are not normally found at other dive sites in the area. The site has a resident mimmic octopus, rare rays, sea moths, snake eels, sea horses, cuttle fish, some nice reef fish, pelagic fish, squid, the odd turtle and is you are very lucky a reef shark.

Fantastic Macro Life

There has also been a fantastic selection of the popular macro photographers favourite, the nudibranch. This has had our instructors flocking with their cameras even on their day off.

If you like taking you time and doing a slightly longer dive or enjoy underwater photography this could be an appealing dive.

Kata Beach is about 20 minutes drive from the popular holiday spot of Patong and about 10 minutes from the the main scuba diving boat harbour of Chalong. It easy reach to most of the island.

The dive is as easy as it gets n the diving world. The maximum depth is about 10 metres however a lot of the coral is only metres from the surface. It is void of currents however at times it can get some strong surge. It is definitely best dived at slack high or slack low tides. Outside of high and low tide the visibility can be poor.

Do I Need to Know How To Swim to Scuba Dive?

In the PADI Open Water Diver Course it is specified that you have to be able to swim 200 metres. This can be with any stroke. You also have to be able to tread water or float for at least 10 minutes. The reason for this is not for the fact that scuba diving requires you to swim. But rather it is for your and your groups safety. In the unlikely event that your BCD (Buoyancy Control Device) was to falter then there would be no device to kee [...]

How long will my scuba tank last?

A question we often get asked is how long will my scuba tank last? Unfortunately there is no simple answer to that question as there are a few variables. Hopefully in this blog we can help answer that question. Your breathing rate depends on your level of exercise (energy output) and the depth that you dive. The higher your level of exercise, the harder you work, the more oxygen you need and the more Carbon Dioxide (CO2) you will produce. In order to remove the CO2 from your lungs while scuba diving, you must inhale air. So, the more exercise you do under the water the more you will breathe, and the quicker you will use your [...]
