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

I did my Open Water certification in early April. I booked with Discovery based on the reviews I read here on Trip Advisor as well as their location in Chaweng. Me and my dive buddy also picked our instructor based on the reviews here as well. Everything about the experience was excellent from start to finish. Our instructor was professional,... More

From start to finish a great experience. Highly responsive in email inquiries, easy to book, pick-up and drop offs on-time. Price was reasonable and included two dives, gear, insurance and drive to and from hotel. Equipment appeared well maintained. Dive boat is fast and comfortable. Dive briefings were thorough. Special shout out to Steve! Divers paired with dive masters---our boat... More

Breathtaking experience it was..We planned our trip to samui to attend Full moon party but more than that we enjoyed our Scuba dive and the reason of that is we choose to dive with Discovery.

Thanks again for diving with us Sajnee. You guys were a lot of fun. One advantage that we have here at Discovery is that we have 9 full-time instructors and this allows us to take out divers in very small groups as per experience levels. This ensures that everyone has a great experience. Also the fact that our staff are... More

One of the best diving experiences I've ever had. The level of service and dive instructor per person attention really made for an exceptional experience. These guys know what they're doing.
