Davy Jones Locker (DJL) is a PADI Dive Centre located at the western end of Pattaya beach, just next to the Spanish dive school, Pura Vida Diving.

DJL Diving's Koh Lipe dive school opened in 2011. The owner Tim often visited Lipe diving himself and decided he wanted to open a dive center here. The diving season runs from the beginning of October through to the end of April. Usually, this is when the dive school here is open, but in 2020 we're staying open all year.

DJL also has a PADI CDC on Koh Tao if you want to become a Diving Instructor.

Koh Lipe's dive sites are very different to the ones on the east coast of Thailand and around Koh Tao. The diving in the Taurtao National Marine Park you will see soft corals and many different fish.
