ScubaDawgs was founded by the owners of Cliff Cottage Resort (www.cliff-cottage.com) in 2012 on the beautiful island of Koh Chang .
The ScubaDawgs Co. Ltd. offers daily diving and snorkeling trips to the most amazing sites within the Mu Koh Chang National Park. This is a marine national park with an area of 650 square kilometres and has more than 52 islands. The most notable island within this archipelago is Koh Chang.
Teaching a variety of PADI dive courses, we established ourselves very rapidly as one of the leading diving schools on Koh Chang. By early 2014 we were rated the number one dive center on Tripadvisor, a rating that we have maintained ever since.
In May 2014 we added RAID Open Circuit Scuba courses to our portfolio, offering an even wider choice to our customers and we also became a RAID Instructor Training Center.
About Koh Chang
Koh Chang is the largest island in the archipelago and second only in size to Phuket in Thailand. The island is a National Park and the restricted development makes it very different to the other popular island tourist destinations and yet it is still very close to the mainland
If you are looking for theme parks, jet skis and shopping malls and then this is not the place for you. Jungle treks, elephant camps, mangrove swamps, waterfalls, beaches, cookery schools, great food, small bars, fishing and of course diving and snorkelling are all on offer
Whilst we get visitors and, in fact, dive and snorkel the whole year, the very best conditions are between late October and early May
The ScubaDawgs headquarters is at our Cliff Cottage resort where, subject to availability, we can accommodate our students 2 nights free of charge during their courses. It is also where our 3 Bauer compressors fill the Scuba tanks we use every day.
Our main shop and equipment room is in the village of Bang Bao. This is where all our guests and students gather to meet their guides and instructors.
We also have shops in Lonely Beach and Kae Bae providing up to date information on the diving itineraries and diving conditions. You can also book your trips there.
Shop opening times are between 8 am and 9 pm in Bang Bao, and between 10 am and 10 pm in Lonely Beach and Kae Bae.
Diving and Snorkel Equipment
All our diving- and snorkel equipment is in good condition, well maintained and included in the costs of our trips and courses.
We have three well maintained and fully equipped boats as well as a tender. We rather take three boats out below capacity than two boats full to capacity Fresh water, tea, coffee, soft drinks, snacks, fruit and a lunch are also included.
All our boats are available for private charters Our two ScubaDawgs taxis provide a free of charge pick-up and drop-off service from any resort on the west coast of Koh Chang.
