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. « less

Everything I could have hoped for, picked up,on time, quick check on kit needs, load and go. Boats were fast and comfortable - did get a bit sea sick once they stopped but that's just me and they were great about it, suggestin I just bob about in the water after my dive. Lunch was one of the best green... More

The guys at Discovery were excellent... they had a high staff to visitor ratio and did everything possible to make the day great, including setting up all the dive gear.

Discovery dive was a slick operation. They have two speed boats which can get you out to the dive points of the coast of Koh Tao within an 1.30 hours which gives them the edge over their rivals who have very slow boats. The dive sites are varied enough for you to enjoy around 3 days - and there was... More

My 17 year old son and I, both fairly experienced Advanced Open Water Divers (40+ dives each), visited Koh Samui and dived with Discovery. I booked the days from the UK (with discount) and the reactions to the e-mails were swift, professional and friendly; we had a good impression before even meeting the team. On arrival at our hotel, we... More

Just finished the PADI Advanced Open Water Certification and the EANx Certification with Discovery Divers. At the same time, my son completed his PADI Open Water Certification. From start to finish Erik and his crew were fantastic. He had personally responded to all of my questions prior to my trip so that everything was set upon our arrival. He arranged... More

Just wanted to add to the already many voices that I found Discovery just fantastic and have no issues at all with their services. Couldn't think of a better place to get my Open Water Divers cert. Nicola was my instructor and was completely professional and great to work with, as was the whole operation.

We loved our experience with Discovery Dive Centre! My wife and I plus her brother did 2 dives at Sail Rock in late July. We were picked up in time from our hotel in a nice shuttle bus, transported right to the dive shop for a quick fit of fins and BCD's as well as a discussion with our dive... More
