ACE Marine Images - inspiring image makers since 1996
Welcome to Thailand's first underwater imaging academy.
ACE Marine Images was founded in 1996 and has evolved from very humble beginnings, into one of the world's leading underwater film production companies and training academies, working alongside some of the best in the industry, making documentaries and offering the most professional underwater video training courses and underwater photography tuition in Thailand.
Our training centre is stationed on Koh Tao, Turtle Island, in the Gulf of Thailand.
We continue to expand on the quality of training and services we offer, by getting smaller, with the addition of ACE Marine Expeditions. And with that we have left the standard dive operators in Koh Tao behind.
Underwater film and photo courses are available from for those who wish to be the best. ACE operates its own purpose built dive boat for underwater film and photo training and adjusts their diving schedules to suit the needs of their students by diving at the best times of day and away from crowded dive boats and crowded dive sites.
We want our students to get the best images possible by taking advantage of the best diving conditions around Koh Tao. ACE offers diving in small groups. Diving trips for certified divers, photo/film training, and diving courses from beginner to professional are offered in group sizes with a maximum of 2 students per 1 instructor or private tuition. Besides an outstanding underwater film academy, ACE is also producing our own documentaries for international broadcast, as well as contributing to many other global film productions, charities, conservation efforts and marine research projects.
Whether you are an experienced diver, or a novice diver wanting to try your hand at underwater imaging for the first time, ACE may have something for you. ACE tailor makes their courses to suit each student's needs.

Come and join us for a life changing experience.

Come and learn with us to reach the pinnacle of underwater photography or underwater video in Thailand.
