One of the best ways to experience everything Samui has to offer is with exclusively gay and highly respected Rainbow Scuba & Tours. Here are some of the highlights to be enjoyed.
Explore Samui in the comfort of an air-conditioned 4-wheel drive vehicle with an experienced, knowledgeable guide.
Flexible personalised half-day or full-day tours for as few as only two people. Can include the things of most interest to you: short treks to remote waterfalls, ancient temples, magnificent viewpoints, remote beaches as well as visiting the more popular tourist spots such as Big Buddha Temple and the penis-shaped rock formation of Hin Ta Hin Yai.
Explore Samui’s offshore islands with your own private long tail boat. Your guide for the day will be a scuba Dive Master with in-depth experienced and knowledge of the marine life.
Spend as long as you like swimming, snorkelling and relaxing on remote beaches before enjoying a delicious freshly cooked Thai meal on a nearby island.
The Gulf of Thailand offers a wide range of excellent dive sites with something for every level of ability from the isolated Sail Rock dropping down to 40 metres to the protected Mango Bay and NangYuan Island with maximum depths of 10-15 metres which are also suitable for non-dive partners to snorkel.
No, you don’t need to go down deeper to try gay scuba; but when you learn with a gay scuba instructor who is PADI-certified, you can be assured of international standards plus a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
From one-day try dives where no experience is necessary to the full PADI Open Water course and beyond a personal and professional service is guaranteed at all times.
Since almost all tourist development is on the east coast of Samui the west coast is called the Virgin Coast. Our small group tours are organised exclusively for LGBT visitors and can access areas that larger main stream tours cannot reach.
Travel by private long tail boat to explore the Five Islands where locals live in bamboo huts precariously perched on the rock face to protect the birds nests – the principal ingredient of Chinese bird’s nest soup.
There is something magical about visiting one of Thailand’s oldest rain forests – just a few hours away from Samui by car and ferry. On route explore sites that most tourists will never see including lush mangrove forests, traditional villages and fresh food markets.
Once in the 645 km² Khao Sok National Park, explore one of the oldest evergreen rain forests in the world with its huge limestone mountains, deep valleys, caves, and wild animals.
Every year, Rainbow Scuba organises two dive trips in different parts of the world, usually in South East Asia. Sometimes resort-based and sometimes live-aboard usually between 7 and 10 days duration.
If you enjoy scuba diving, you will enjoy it even more in the company of a small friendly international LGTB group. Trips have been running since 2005 with pictures and videos on the website. Future trips are scheduled up to 2018 with full details under the Calendar section
