Kon-Tiki is an award winning diving and snorkeling center where involvement is the key theme. Awards: In 2008, PADI and Project AWARE awarded Kon-Tiki Thailand with the prestigious ”PADI/Project AWARE Marine Environmental Award” and in 2009 we were among the three finalist 2009. In 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009, Project AWARE has awarded Kon-Tiki Thailand with the “Project AWARE Environmental Award”. We are the only dive center in the world who has been awarded this for 4 years in a row. 2012 we got an award for “Outstanding Contribution to the Diving Industry”. Our key values: CARE – KNOWLEDGE – SAFETY is evident in everything we do. Care: Since we live to show people the wonders of our seas, we feel that it is crucial that we take responsibility for how we interact with that environment. This includes minimizing wear and tear of these fragile environments, but also educating ourselves and our customers, about how we can be part of the solution, rather than part of the problem. The value of caring is also relevant in all interrelationships between staff, guests and people we interact with. It is a basis from which we try to operate at all times.

Myself and partner did 2 fun dives at koh bida. The weather was a little against us but Frank made our day run very smoothly. Only having done 6 dives before we are relatively new to diving, Frank explained everything, taught us a few new tips but most of all let us have fun and relax underwater. He let us... More

We showed up late on friday night just before closing asking to dive the next morning. Their boat was full but they called around and got us on another boat with our own Kon-Tiki dive master. Frank was awesome. We both were not feeling well (I was up all night sick and my boyfriend started feeling sick that morning) but... More

I'm sorry to tell that but I don't recomend Kon Tiki. I paid for 3 dives (4900 Bath including everything) and because there was less tanks then people on the boat, we were not able to do 3rd dive. When I ask for money back, they gave me just for one dive (900 Bath). I think that fair would be... More

Did a 3 day dive trip at Koh Lanta with Kon Tiki Diving Center. It was a nice experience. Our guide Davy was very professional, knew a lot about the dive sites. Lots of experience. Also, we were given good advice at the dive shop by Peter.

Had dived with Kon-Tiki Krabi previously, so Kon-Tiki Koh Lanta was obvious choice for us. Excellent service & response from initial email through arranging dive day, hotel pick up & drop off, dive briefings etc. Had to boat share for dive day due to lack of divers (used Palm Beach Divers boat) & that was OK with us. But we... More

We (my son (14) and me) enjoed our dive trips to Ko Haa and Bin Hai with Davy as our dive instructor very much. When we showed up first at the Kon-Tiki shop Peter advised us very professional about the sites, the costs and the included / not included items. Since we already read the reviews on tripadvisor prior to... More

Went to Koh Lanta, and was able to dive Koh Haa with Davy and Hin Daeng / Hin Muang with Anabelle. These guys are fantastic! Really took care of us, knew the dive spots, and were extremely fun and professional.

We booked a tour to Koh Haa for snorkeling and my first diving experience. Davy was my instructor for my discover scuba diving experience and did a great job. The explanations were good and during the dives, he always looked to me. The islands of Koh Haa are very beautiful for diving and snorkeling.
