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.

Great crew, great company, had an excellent time diving. It was my second time diving ever, and my guide Nick made it a great experience by adjusting to go as quickly or slowly as I wanted and pointing out all sorts of things during the dive. The fact that the guides take pictures and upload them to dropbox (for free)... More

Great experience with amazing crews and instructors, met and swam with 5m whale shark. Love it! They have professional digital camera captured the wonderful enjoyable moments, and took good care of everyone. I did not have enough sleep that day, but still have had a great experience, and glad to recommend to anyone finding diving company in Koh samui.

My wife and I decided to do our open water diving PADI with Discovery Dive Centre. Although they weren't the cheapest they seemed like a highly professional outfit, and indeed we really got our monies worth! Our instructor, Nick, was excellent - knowledgeable, patient, and clear. Even when my wife decided scuba diving wasn't for her, the centre treated us... More

Thanks for the nice review Jen. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee a whale shark on every dive, but can be sure that everyone has a great time. Of course the whale shark doesn't hurt either. See you on the next trip More

Really great experience. Very professional dive center. When you arrive (I walked), there is the fitting and breakfast. The 2 dives on Sail Rock where excellent, and staff very professional (logbook check, buddy check). I also really enjoyed lunch. The visibility at Sail Rock was poor and the speedboat ride bumpy (take sea sickness tabs), but these are external factors.... More

HI Gino, Thanks again for coming with us to Sail Rock and for the nice review. Unfortunately, we cannot control the sea conditions or the waves, but our staff can still make it an amazing day for everyone. We're glad you had a great time with us anyway and see you next time with hopefully great conditions. More
