The Marine Conservation

Come see the good work we do at the marine conservation programme.

Become an Open Water diver!


Koh Tao is known for its high level of scuba training and New Heaven is no exception, with our small group sizes and experienced instructors with multiple languages we cater for all levels of divers, whether taking your first diving course – and becoming an Open Water Diver, or more experienced divers wishing to fun dive to see the amazing underwater world we have here. Being a dive school with a focus on marine conservation our divemasters are highly knowledgeable about the coral reef and marine life that Koh Tao has to offer.


Yoga classes are held daily on the decking above the dive shop looking out over the beautiful waters of Chalok Baan Kao Bay. For those who have a little longer or want to focus deeper into yoga, we also hold 7-day yoga and Ayurveda retreats at our Baan Talay Resort. The are also 3 day yoga holidays available as well as yoga for Free Diving, so great activities all round for the beginner as well as advanced yoga practitioner.


Freediving courses or Apnea is rapidly becoming a popular way to experience the underwater world. Freediving is the sport of apnea, diving on a single breath of air. It’s a life-changing experience and the most natural way of exploring under the waves. Learn to freedive on one of our courses and you’ll experience a sense of freedom under the water like nothing else. It’s an amazing way to interact with sea life, get fit, and redefine your limits. All our freediving course included Pranayama workshops (Yoga Breathing) and Hatha Yoga classes to help you get in touch with your self and the environment around you.


Marine conservation courses are offered for many different topics of the marine environment. Our marine conservation programs run for a few days to a few months and can be tailored to individuals requiring research or data for university papers. We are continually building and maintaining artificial reefs, and recently have been carefully studying coral spawning and monitoring the increase of Drupella snails around the dive sites of Koh Tao. Please take a look at our full list and details of the conservation projects we are involved in.

Fooled by the moon – coral spawning 2016

Once a year, during a period of about 15 minutes, many hard coral colonies of the same species will spawn synchronously in the same area. Corals cannot move, that’s why reproductive success depends on the accuracy in spawning time of all the colonies.
