Our dive school wants to give you the customer the best dive experience we possibly can, so for people wishing to take a PADI course we make sure our groups are no bigger than 4 people this enables our experienced instructors to give you plenty of individual attention making you a better and safer diver...for certified people who just want to fun dive our dive leaders are very experienced with all the dive site's around this beautiful island and we have no limit on dive time our boat only goes out once a day for 2 dives so were not restricted by schedules...and our boat does not leave until 11pm this means no setting your alarm at 6.30 your are on holiday after all, also leaving at this time means we arrive at dive sites when other schools are leaving so we can spend more time looking at the fish and not other divers so come join our magical underwater world on the rock (Koh Tao).

Everyone at all the shops were friendly but Golden Divers were the most knowledgeable and accommodating for what we wanted.

I would honestly suggest that you go somewhere else in Koh Tao. We chose this place because it was less expensive (7500baht vs. 8600baht without accommodation). Our instructor was really nice, and it was just one instructor for 2 people. However, the equipment was literally terrible. It was our first diving experience, so we didn't really know just how bad... More

There are so many dive shops to choose from in Koh Tao and after going into quite a few I thought that Golden Divers was the most friendly and welcoming one. I really liked the fact that you got to meet and chat to the owner Arno and that you could get to know everyone on the team. Even though... More

Come to them by chance, had one day left in Koh Tao and looked who will take me to HTMS Sattakut. Very friendly and good people, really enjoyed to dive with them! Professional instructors and good attitude, without stupid, over-safety invented rules that one very specific other company in Koh Tao has.

A trustworthy diving school. My husband and I both dived for the first time in our lives. One at a time, so one of us could stay with the kids on the boat. The instructor was patient, funny and we felt very save. Go here!

Decided to go with Golden Divers after some shopping around on my first day in Koh Tao. Although they offered the best price it was the fun, friendly and relaxed atmosphere that made me want to get my PADI with this company. Because we trained in small groups of 4 each of my team mates and I had time to... More

Last October I got my PADI open water at Golden Divers and I'm so happy I found this diving school. The trainers are very professional, but also great fun. I was an absolute beginner and I was a little bit scared at the beginning, but they made sure I forgot about that immediately. We we're a group of 3 and... More
