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

Discovery Divers is not the lowest priced dive shop in town but it is well worth the price charged. It runs its own two speedboats with well-trained certified instructors. The captain decides where to take the group to depending on where to find optimal ocean conditions that day. The groups are usually small 2-4 divers so that each diver receives... More

We have dived through Maui, Great Barrier Reef (live aboard) : am not a proficient diver, BUT Discovery Divers was safe, (equipment, safety checks, etc) guides and crew were there to assist in a beneficial dive. By the way, there is a decompression chamber on Koh Samui. Lunch provided ( even vegetarian- ask before, they are happy to provide) Towels... More

After two years of (mis)management of plans and eager researching, I finally went diving! Thanks to the anticipation that had developed, I had BIG expectations from my first dive shop. To my complete delight, Discovery has satisfied all of it and so much more. Extremely professional, very accommodating and so CRAZY. Eric, the Dive Shop owner helped us chart the... More

Thank you for giving us a taste of what diving is all about! We tried our first test- dive at Koh Tao with children of 10 and 15, and with great instructor skills from Steve and Arno we all felt very well taken care of, and diving down to 12 meters felt great! Beautiful experience. Day 2 we had the... More

I had a brilliant time completing the Padi Open water diver course with Tak. The team were flexible to find the best way for me to complete the course given difficult weather. Finally getting to Koh Tao was like swimming through a documentary. I cannot recommend the team more highly; professionalism, value, experience - by any metric they are fantastic... More

Before enrolling for the padi courses, I always said: No I will never dive!! I'm too scared to be under the water, this is too dangerous! Well... From the day I started, I knew I was learning with professionals. And it was fun! After the exercises in the swimming pool, I could not wait to go for the sea... My... More

Great atmosphere, very well organised, just a shame the weather wasn't at its best. A huge thank you to Cris for her availability, efficiency, kindness, patience and humour, I had a fantastic experience learning how to dive safely with her and in my mother tongue (in French) ☺️ Thanks again for the great time and hope to see you again...
