Completed my PADI TecRec gas blender course this month...the course was extensive and included more than the basic requirements. We were taught the theory and some practical of O2 cleaning, how to operate and maintain compressors, and were given extensive practice with filling nitrox and air cyclinders using various blending methods. Highly recommend this course, run by Jason Matthews, as... More

I booked in advance with Master Divers to put my two boys (15 & 18) through their open water training - it was easy to organize and the staff were really helpful.

Though it may seem expensive in comparison to some other dive sites in Koh Tao, we found Master Divers to be well worth the money. We bought a open water PADI course with them having never dived before. The staff at reception were pleasant and helpful and clearly explained how our three and a half day course would pan out....

As a first time diver I felt complete confidence in Thomas and his ability to lead myself and my two other course members through our Open Water PADI certification.
