Mermaids s the only PADI 5 Star dive centre in Pattaya. Every day, you have the choice of regular dive sites or wreck diving.
The diving in and around Pattaya isn't brilliant due to the low visibility. Apart from that, if you chose Mermaids, everything else is first class.
As well as recreational diving, they offer training and equipment repairs. All services and prices are on their website.
If you are diving in Pattaya, you should definitely consider Mermaids.
Equipment: I can't comment about their rental gear as I took my own but if it's to the same standard of everything else in Mermaids, then there will be no problems renting from them.
The diving in Thailand is spectacular.
Warm water, great visibility, and a large variety of things to see.
Equipment: Rent from Siam Divers. Great instructors and rates, a good place to take your Openwater and learn what you are doing.
We spent a very interesting and enjoyable day on 75 foot (23 meter) luxury boat touring, fishing and swimming around the beautiful islands of the Pattaya coast.
Why it was so special was because the boat was so clean and well run up to European standards, we found the crew to be very knowledgeable and helpful with regard to good fishing sites and safe swimming area’s, all the fishing equipment, bait and snorkeling equipment was provided free for our enjoyment.
It was surprisingly cheap considering the size of the boat, the service and the full day’s enjoyment we got from our trip.
We can highly recommend chartering this boat for day trips or longer overnight trips.
The Thai food they served from thier sea food menu on board had a splendid variety of different tasty dishes, all the ice for keeping our drinks cool in the insulated ice boxes and the bottled drinking water was provided free of charge.
We brought with us some of our favorite music CD’s as the boat has a very good music system.
This boat also offers evening cruises during which you can try your hand at squid fishing; the squid are plentiful and delicious when cooked on the open BBQ by the crew.
The most memorable day of our visit to Pattaya Thailand.
Equipment: If you wish to dive there are local suppliers who can provide you with all the necessary equipment.
A good tip in hot weather is to bring along a soft hat, sunglasses and some sun block.

One of the things Pattaya is famous about is water sports including Windsurfing banana boat rides
Water Skiing parasailing Snorkelling Scuba Diving and many more prices are depending on the season and your bargain skills
Pattaya is full of water life with so many water related activities available for the tourists. We went to Koh Larn Island by speed boat to experience water life there. Munu, took the under water walking at a place near Koh Larn Beach Island.
For a fee of Baht 1200 , she had a 40 minutes( They normally allow 25 minutes) walk under the sea bed. She also too many pictures with my Olympus Tough 8030 under water camera! It was quite an experience for a beginner!
Equipment: They will provide you under water gear.
If you're looking for some active activities in Pattaya, why not go jet skiing. It costs you 500-600THB to jet ski for 30 mins.
I suggest you go to Jomtien beach cos the water is a little bit cleaner.
Wow... the waves are big.
And the winds are so strong.
Saw a lot of people windsurfing and also para-surfing.
You're hooked up to a chute like a big kite and you wear skis, using the control bar, you catch the wind and surf the waves!
Looks like great fun and there are places that offer lessons if you're interested.
Popular sea activity from 11am to 5pm, especially weekends. Parasailing = parachute sailing. Fun to do but shortlived. 100 baht for one round the big ship where you take off from, on a speedboat. Speedboater will try dunking you into the sea once you reached the highest point.
Equipment: Parachute, harness, life jackets, and training all provided. Just bring along your money and sense of adventure.
Here are more pictures. If you have an Under Water Camera( Like the one I have) they will help you to take your pictures as well as pictures of the water world. The Olympus Tough 8030 , which I bought on return from Bali helped Munu to take the pictures of water world a lot. She took more than 100 pictures. The photographs taken under water are just excellent.
They charge you Baht 300 in case you want to get a picture of your under water walking. They give the pictures in a CD.
Pattaya sea is fully exploited to the core, you name any beach activity they have it. We experienced speed boat for nearly one hour for Baht 300 from Pattaya beach to Koh Laren and back. They take the boat speed up to 70kms per hour! A must for all travelers to Pattaya.
It's an wonderful experience to be experimented. For ten long minutes you are up in the air with the help of a speed boat and a parachute. For a fee of Baht 600 it was an wonderful experience for Munu. They take you in speed boat to the middle of a floating dock, there you have the choice of undertaking Para Sailing or watching other Para Sailing. They will give you a number and tag mark once you have paid. Then you are in the Que, with safety jacket , life buoy , when your turn comes, you fly. They will also guide you on how to land, though it is very meticulously planned your landing sometimes you get dropped in the water just below the launching pad. There they assist you to get up, swim and get back on board.
Dress: Use your swimming costume as there is every possibility that you get drenched!
Fee: Baht: 600 for 10 minutes Para sailing
There are many activities inside Pattaya Park including a large water park with big slides tower jump which is jumping from the tower top Slalom Roller Coster Mono Rail tower shot
Jet-ski is maybe a little bit dangerous but it's fun. About 500 for 20 minutes. Better to do it in Jomtien beach.
The average price for Jetskiing on Pattaya beach is about 550 Baht for 30 mins. We've paid that, so we know it's possible
