All images are are shot on location by our Managing Director – PADI Platinum Course Director Richard Swann.


A member of our staff team will guide you throughout the snorkelling & sea kayaking, taking you to the most interesting places and pointing out fascinating marine & wildlife. Our guide will also bring along all the required safety equipment. Life ring & snorkel vests (if required) and marine hand held radio. When trekking it is very safe to wander through the jungle trails without a guide. We will give you a handheld radio for communication with the Dive & Adventure Centre and provide an area orientation.

Should you enjoy one of your activities so much that you want to repeat it, this is not a problem ! You can exchange any one of these activities by talking with our island team. Time wise we are offering 3 activity sessions per day.

Between each session of approximately 45 minutes you will return to our paradise PADI 5 Star Dive & Adventure Centre nestled in a secluded bay on Gaya Island where you will enjoy refreshments and a freshly cooked lunch.

At all times you are in safe hands. We pride ourselves on small group instruction ensuring our clients get the very best of attention from the instructor. Safety is paramount, we adhere to PADI standards and procedures and HSE Guidelines. Our boats are equipped with marine radio, GPS & First Aid kits and our qualified snorkel guides always bring a life ring with them. All our guides are trained in Emergency First Response.
