Description: Discovery Divers is the premier 5-star PADI dive center in Koh Samui...
Discovery Divers is the premier 5-star PADI dive center in Koh Samui offering the highest quality of service for reasonable prices. We are one of the longest running dive shops on the island as having been in business for over 14 years and have the most experienced and respected full time dive staff in the Gulf of Thailand. Discovery is also one of the only diver centers who runs our own speedboats. We offer a full range of PADI courses from Bubblemaker, Discover Scuba diving and open water diver up to professional level divemaster training. We have full-time dive staff that speaks fluent English, German, French, Chinese, Cantonese, Japanese, Italian and Spanish. At Discovery Divers we are committed to fun and safety. We believe that the customers needs come first. This is why we have access to the widest selection of boats on the island including our own Discovery Divers speedboats and run numerous daily trips to all of the beautiful dives sites in the gulf of Thailand. We realize that it is YOUR vacation and usually can accommodate any request for courses or certified divers to go to the location you want to go on the day you want to go, with the type of boat (tour boat or speedboat)that you want to go on. We also offer photography services and rentals using top of the line Canon cameras and have console and wrist computers for use with courses or certified divers. This along with our stock of exceptional and modern dive equipment from Aqua Lung, Mares and Scubapro will make your dives safe, fun and worry free. Come by and see our dive shop, meet our staff, and see our onsite training pools, equipment room, washing area and classroom in front of the Amari Hotel in Chaweng Beach.

I completed my advanced open water with my instructor Sebastien and also did a few fun dives too (9 in total) and what can I say other than..WOW! The whole dive experience is just unbeatable. As soon as you walk through the door you are welcomed by the discovery dive family, which make you feel so comfortable and relaxed. You... More

My wife and I did a dive with them. As she is certified and I'm not, we dived in different sites but it was really nice for both of us. All the staff is really nice!!! The equipment offered is quite new!!!

Positive: -------------- I lived at Lamai Beach, south of Koh Samui. They picked me up in the morning with a nice car and they drove me back to the hotel after the dives. We had a small breakfast at their "offices", while picking up gear. Then we went with their speedboat to surroundings of Koh Tao, where we did 2... More

We did our PADI open water course with them and it was a great experience! They're very professional, friendly and the staff we met were great. Arnauld is a legend! Also have to mention that they were very accommodating for us even when we had to cancel one day due to food poisoning. Highly, highly recommend!

We completed our Advanced Open Water course with Discovery in July 2015, which consisted of 5 dives over 2 days. We were a group of three and were taken through the course by instructor Chris who I could absolutely not recommend highly enough. She was professional, knowledgeable and patient which meant we made some good progress over the two days... More

Hi Everyone, I went diving with the team at discovery divers on Samui in June 2015 and all I have is great words to say!

Thanks for the awesome review Samantha. We're so glad that you found our shops and decided to dive with us. That's also a good word of caution to other people as some of the tour agents promise Discovery and then book people with other dive shops. Always better to contact us directly. We are happy that you enjoyed our service... More
