Those not certified had a 2 students to 1 instructor ratio. All the instructors were really great. Everyone had fun and saw a lot... More

She was very friendly and made you feel so safe in the water. I was very nervous at the beginning and Sal made my confidence grow and by the end... More

Sir, You came into our dive centre and asked to take your 'customers' diving on our boat, having established that you were not legally working in Thailand I politely made it clear to you that we do not allow anyone to teach or lead dives on our boat under these circumstances. If you found my attitude abrasive it was because... More

Nothing against the dive shop as the dive masters were good. However if you are an experienced diver this area will leave you a little disappointed. Coral out here isn't great mostly brown, the reef is looking a little rough. You will find much better coral in the Philippines/Malaysia. Every dive shop on phi phi charges the same amount per...

Hi Chris, Thanks for the review, I glad that our operation was up to scratch even if you were less impressed by the reef. Thailand suffered from some coral bleaching this year although fortunately less than Indonesia and Australia. If you are back this way may I suggest you try the Kled Gaoew or King Cruiser wreck trip for some... More
