Seafari Dive Center was the first scuba diving operation to open in Pattaya...

Seafari Dive Center was the first scuba diving operation to open in Pattaya and one of the first in Thailand. Founded by Bill Burbridge back in 1970, it's still actively serving scuba divers from all over the world. If experience is "the best teacher", we've got more than 35 years of it and that certainly says something! Why not come and join us for a great days diving or try one of our introductory courses which run all the way through to instructor levels? Look forward to seeing you.

Just spent the past week diving at Pattaya with the guys and gals at Seafari. This my third year diving here and I keep coming back. There are better dive sites in the world but I think you would be hard pressed to find better people. You can go diving with a boat load of people with less than ideal... More

#Ace Australian Diver #Amazing person #Great instructor... Is what we'd caption Greg as!!! He made snorkeling a pleasant experience for us at Pattaya, neither my husband nor I can swim, however we had an amazing time at the Sea watching underwater life, keeping all our fear of swimming in the ocean at bay... All thanks to Greg! We highly recommend... More

It has a been long time since I last dive and the instructor Anne has been very helpful. Helping me with my gear and refreshing my skills. She helped a lot with my buoyancy as I forgot how many weights I needed. Great dive and great weather!

It was my first ever diving experience and it is also so that I am a non swimmer but the team at Seafari did an excellent job. The overall experience was amazing. It was an entire day spent at the coral islands. The location was beautiful and the diving experience was astounding. I was initially scared and didn't know if... More

Had a delightful experience with the group for the whole day. Long boat ride, multiple dives, picturesque dive sites ... Everything made it memorable. Nathan, Arnold and Luke were fantastic trainers. Kudos to them.

I returned again to Seafari to complete more certifications and just dive. If you are in the area and thinking about getting into the water, Seafari (and Pattaya Dive Center) is the place for you. They do a trip every day on their new fast dive boat out to the far islands and avoid the jet skis etc. and once... More

Very good dive masters. If you are used to Caribbean style diving with clear high vis dives with lots of life.... this is not it. Been to so many dive destinations this one is at the low end of the spectrum. Very poor visibility. Other than that the dive shop receptionist is very helpful and arranged dives as requested. The...

I went there or three days to get my rescue diver (already had my EFR). I think they prepared me well and the staff is pretty serious.
