Owner description: 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.

Pickup the next morning was exactly as promised in a nice air conditioned minibus. We were then taken to the pier where... More

Visited Discovery Dive for 4 days of diving with my friends and father-in-law who have a range of experience from newly qualifying Open Water divers to seasoned Advanced, Rescue and Instructor level diving. Discovery did a great job of accommodating the various needs of all ten of us. The instructors were great and the boats crews equally awesome. Looking forward... More

My wife and I recently took the Discover Diving class for beginners at Discovery Divers and it was one of the highlights of our trip to Thailand. For one, they were super accommodating as we made the reservation the night before at 8pm and they took the time to explain the class and the registration process to us. Our instructor... More

From the initial communication, booking process right through to the dives itself these guys were outstanding. I was collected (on time), and upon arrival at their dive centre was created by the crew. I was paired with Takeshi a.k.a. the Samurai and we went through our dive plan, my experience, gear, etc. The speedboat ride out to Sail Rock was... More

I dived with these guys twice, and it's been a blast both times. From pick up to drop off, everything was smoothly taken care of and you just have to let yourself go and enjoy the underwater. Dived with Sebastien both times, he is a great instructor, super friendly and knowledgeable, laid back but nonetheless professional, a real character !... More

They had coffee and snacks for the divers. After sorting things out we went out. Discover Dive Centre uses speed boats to... More
