Elaine Brett – Master Divers, Koh Tao
Elaine Brett is a dive professional, the resident manager and co-owner of Master Divers, one of the oldest and most successful dive centres on Koh Tao, Thailand.
Master Divers is one of the longest operating PADI dive centres on Koh Tao, having first opened its doors in 1992. You will find all of the staff you meet here are very passionate about every aspect of diving. Between us all we have experienced a huge range of dive centres over our time in the dive industry, whether as a customer, instructor or manager. Therefore we have taken our own ideals for the dive industry and combined it with the best aspects of those centres, and brought them together to welcome divers of any experience and age.
Our aim has always been to create a small yet professional and friendly dive centre which offers a high quality of tuition and service, with great facilities and a high standard of equipment. We pride ourselves on being the kind of dive centre that does not cut corners, the kind of dive centre where you are a name rather than a number, the kind of dive centre where you feel welcome and cared for, the kind of dive centre that cares for the environment and the kind of dive centre that we would like to dive in ourselves!
It’s been damn hard work, but we believe we have succeeded. You needn’t just take our word for it though.
The northernmost of 3 islands in the Gulf, Koh Tao has attracted many tourists wishing to dive and obtain their certifications (with the added chance of seeing a Whaleshark). At times this slice of paradise has been frowned upon for how busy it can get however, the tiny island is without a doubt a fantastic location to visit and is currently having some major rest from activity. Cue the aquatic life… I’m going to put it out there that post pandemic, Koh Tao should be on every divers wish list! It’s definitely going to be on mine! The relaxed atmosphere, great visibility, 30 degree water and the sunsets over Sairee Beach are simply stunning.
During this episode I catch up with Elaine and hear about life on the island and the exploratory diving she is conducting alongside other long-standing local dive pro’s on the hunt for previously over-looked gems in the macro world residing in the tropical waters.
