Best dive education on Phuket, period! Thien runs an excellent dive operation and makes sure his instructors live up to his high standards. Rumblefish goes above and beyond that, though, by arranging not only training but almost your entire vacation stay. Thien helped us not only with the diving portion, but helped by making our reservations at Capannina Inn (a... More

If you need the cheapest bed in Kata or Phukett for that matter, it is probably here. And I won't doubt that the man in charge is trying to provide decent and eco services like water coolers for re-filling your bottle and snacks on hand for purchasing where you just write down what you use and at a decent price....

We apologize you have had a bad experience during your one night stay with us. Pae thought that you don't want the AC on because it was too loud, as you have told her. We turn the AC on from 7pm - 9am for the female dorm and set it at 25C normally. She simply just did what she had... More

Went to Phuket in a big group with different agendas. Had friends who wanted to do open water diver course, while others were leisure divers. Miz and Thien made our visit (my first to Phuket) so awesome. They were always on hand to help us, even arranging for airport shuttle service for us and recommending places to eat to us.... More

No superlatives, a great job done and very happy parents and kids. Nice day on the Latitude and two fun dives leaving the children pestering for more! Next time, they'll do the junior course with Rumblefish. Dive safe!

Love these guys. They are a great bunch, take you on great dives, and tell you about good places to eat and go out the night later. Got our advanced open water, did night dives and saw all kinds of stuff. They even helped service and take care of the gear we brought ourselves.

After some careful thinking about where to do my open water course I decided on these guys. I opted for the 1 2 1 tuition to get the best knowledge I could. Great value for money!

Super friendly and funny dive instructors and staff :) The accommodation was cosy and clean, and 5 minutes away from the beach - included for free in our dive package. We had the triple deluxe room on the 3rd floor so it was nice and private. But wifi was abit shaky- you'll have to go downstairs to get wifi. Other... More

We went to Rumblefish Adventures for our PADI Open Water Suba Cert and it was the best decision ever! We had so much fun with the staff, had an amazing time underwater (seriously everyone should do this) and were so happy the classes are kept small.
