Rainbow-Scuba & Tour is the love child of Adam Preston. Born and raised in London, England, Adam spent many years dreaming of an escape from office life, the northern European weather and the overcrowded big city.
In 2002 he took a career break from his job in Information Technology and went to Thailand to start professional scuba diving training. Adam spent the next two years gaining experience as a PADI Scuba Diving Instructor as well as exploring the mountains and forests of Koh Samui and the nearby mainland provinces.
Adam led as much of an active outdoor lifestyle as he could in the UK and was surprised to see so little available for the LGBT community in Thailand. In most western nations there are gay clubs for skiing, walking, running, swimming, stamp collecting, football: almost any sport or hobby you can imagine.
In 2004 Rainbow-Scuba & Tours was formed and in 2005 the first scuba diving live-aboard trip was held to Phi Phi Islands on the Andaman Sea. Since then there has been over 20 live-aboards to as far away places as Micronesia, Maldives and Costa Rica. You can see pictures from all these trips in our Galleries
Thailand is famous for its mountains; trekking; tropical islands and beaches and it is also well known as a LGBT friendly country. However the old fashion gay scene centered on boy shows, massage, bars and night clubs. Rainbow-Scuba & Tour hopes to change that and at the same time provide gay Thai people with a positive role model - an alternative to the commercial pressures of the gay scene.
