Great experience as a first time scuba diver

My wife and I both opted for the Discovery program with Chris at Ko Tao. The price can be hard to swallow but once you're out there you realize it's fully worth it. The trip was... read more

My wife and I both opted for the Discovery program with Chris at Ko Tao. The price can be hard to swallow but once you're out there you realize it's fully worth it. The trip was as 'all inclusive' as you can get with transportation from the hotel to the boat, food and drink (and beer for the boat ride... More

I went to CSI to obtain the Open Water certification over Chinese New Year and had the pleasure to learn diving with Christine. She is a very competent and passionate teacher and diver. I was the only student and this way we could finish the obligatory skills part thoroughly but fairly quickly and had plenty of time enjoying the dives... More

Had an amazing time with Christine. We went diving as a couple and met with our diver Christine, an experienced diver . We explained to her we weren't certified and said that she will do a quick reminder no need for the full beginner step. She was extremely caring and showed us things that the other divers missed out on.... More

It was our first trip to Koh Samui and Tripadvisor advised that the best activity was to do a dive trip with CSI. I had dived once before twenty years ago, and my wife, not being confident in water, only wanted to snorkel. We rang Paul and booked a day trip dive to Koh Tao. We were picked up from... More

We just completed our Open Water diving course with CSI and it was amazing. Having Christine as our teacher made our first diving experience unforgettable. We could not have asked for a more competent and dependable guide. She was really patient, very calm and lots of fun. Christine is really passionate about her job and was eager for us to... More

My husband and I were in Ko Samui for our honeymoon back in August and this was one of the highlights of our trip. He wanted to dive but I just wanted to snorkel which worked out great. I was the only one in our group that was snorkeling so Tao took me out while the rest of the group... More

A long overdue review of CSI, it was a great diving experience, Paul is very experienced and professional, but fun and easygoing at the same time, would definitely recommend to anyone having a dilemma whom to dive with on Samui, go for CSI, you will not regret it and make sure to buy the photos that Paul makes during the...

Paul and the CSI team were great!! Awesome boat that made it much more comfortable compared to the big guys. I took the trip on my own and was buddy'd up with Paul, he had great insight on the dive sights and marine life to be expected. And he was a Brit so, for a solo American traveler, it was... More

Both my husband and myself had never dived before and we were keen but apprehensive about diving. However, Paul from CSI met us at our hotel and took us through all the procedures and there was no looking back from there. The next day before the dive we met Christine our dive instructor who was extremely patient, sincere and made... More

In January my fiancé and I got our Padi Open Water tickets. Paul at CSI Samui is very knowledgeable and makes you feel very safe. He is very organised and professional. We started off in the pool with very thorough training which we managed to complete fairly well (minus my very long battle to put my weight belt on in... More
