Why Ao Nang Area Krabi?
If you spend your holiday in Krabi, you will see for yourself why it is easy to fall in love with this place. For us, the most important factor is the diving. We have dived in many places around the world, and this part of Thailand has some of the best diving we’ve done. And like you will see when you come here, the area is a true paradise.
Among beach destinations in Southeast Asia, Krabi stands out for beautiful scenery and genuinely nice people. Although Ao Nang is touristy, you do not have to travel far to find a slice of authentic Thailand. Our shop is based in an authentic village community only 10 minutes drive from Ao Nang.
In many tourist areas of Thailand, particularly in the South, extensive development has made such places rare to find. But the area surrounding Ao Nang is a great balance between tourist convenience and genuine Thai culture.

Sea Gypsy Divers, open since October 2017, is managed by Meggy Rizza and Joel Gerstman. Our story is of a husband and wife couple whose life passion is scuba diving. We met at Koh Tao, another of Thailand’s famous scuba destinations. Joel was a full-time Instructor and Meggy was just starting her Divemaster training.
As luck would have it, Joel’s manager played cupid by assigning him to teach Meggy’s Rescue course. A few years and one underwater proposal later, here we are in the Ao Nang area of Krabi continuing to live our dream.
