to the effort we put to keeping our equipment up to
date, our customers happy, and the quality of the diving
courses our main priority.

ran very successful IDCs
and have instructors working around the world!
BB DIVERS is the first facility
to organize IDC on Ko Chang!

organized by the national park.
|Under the boat
Our boats are original Thai boats, comfortably adapted
for diving. There is plenty of space to relax for the
non divers, and to have a nice chat or siesta on the
way back from a diving day on the sundeck. We take a
small speedboat as well to the dive sites for safety
or pick up.
Our big boat ‘Yai’
is very comfortable, it has place for 100 tanks, even
on busy days it offers plenty of place for all. The
dive equipment is set up below, the top deck is used
for all other activities (or non activities!)
Our smaller boat ‘Lek’
is fitted with 40 tank racks, and has a great sundeck
on top to relax between the dives. It is nice and cosy,
and gets us to the dive sites fast.
From Koh Kood we operate of a wooden boat as well, on Koh Mak we use a smaller speedboat.

All dive instructors
are PADI licensed and speak several languages. Every
instructor or dive
master works here out of passion
not just as a job. Most of our "BB-ers"
are travelers who started their dive
training here and found their place
on these beautiful Thai islands. It became their second home, and every
year more and more familiar faces show up again: The
magic of Ko Chang ...
The boat staff are local Thai; they take care of your
safety on the boat, and make sure to add to the fun
diving, dive courses, snorkeling
Every day we go out on our own boat for a relaxed day
trip. We either travel to the local sites around Ko
Chang, Ko Maak or to Ko Rang National
Park, where we enjoy the clear waters and pristine
of this protected area. Most places are good for diving
We visit two or three spots, and on the Ko Rang trips we have
lunch close to a beach where we take the time to relax
between dives. One of the most populare dives is the shipwreck HTMS Chang, so we dive there every other day.
Best time of the year is September to May, in June to
August we go out weather permitting.
Divers are guided by the dive
master, we dive in small groups and use of full equipment
is included. A digital underwater camera can be hired

If we like to dive the deeper ones then we take the
divers there with our small speedboat while the BB boat
stays with the snorkelers for safety. On busy days we
organize separate snorkel trips.

Welcome to BB DIVERS pool and accomodation in Lonely Beach
In November 2006 we'd outgrown our facilities a bit,
so decided to built the new ‘BB DIVERS pool’
in Lonely Beach. It is not just a training pool, but
a great meeting place to chill out over a cool fruit
shake, enjoy a chilled Belgian beer after the dive, catch up
with the dive stories of the day or have a game of snooker.
There is a very cozy lounge and restaurant "BB world of Tapas", which is serving breakfast, large selection of tapas, pasta, sandwiches and a choice of 40 Belgian Beers. Behind the restaurant there are rooms for our guests. The pool was built to accommodate
our dive students and allow them to train in a private
environment. Our original wooden classroom overlooking
the pool also serves as a meeting place after the dives
... Next to the restaurant you will find the BB Gym where everyone is welcome for a work out or a yoga session.
Since June 2008 we’ve rebuilt the shop, where
we offer a nice selection of dive and snorkel equipment.
BB DIVERS Koh Kood Office
BB Divers Koh Kood is perfectly located on Klong Chao main road, just next to the river leading to the famous Klong Chao waterfall. The dive center is easy to reach since we are on the main main road, the second center is in Siam Beach Resort, where we keep the boat parked on the pier. The beach offers a great spot for dive training and it is easy to train first dives since we have a house reef just in front of the shop and many good diving spots just a boat ride away.
Would you like to refresh your dive skills? Walk in and half an hour later you are in the sea practicing your dive skills and getting ready for your next dive trip. For the fun dives, course dives and snorkel trips we go out by speedboat. Many resorts in Koh Kood are on the coast, allowing us to pick up the divers by boat and take them directly to the dive sites.
BB DIVERS Koh Mak Office
Our latest office in Ko Mak opened in 2013, it is on the main road close to Monkey Island Resort.
