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.

My partner wanted to get her open water certification so that she is able to go on a dive with me, but was not able to equalise the pressure and was not able to complete the certification. Given the circumstances and the short time we were in Koh Samui, Discovery Dives were flexible in being able to let her snorkel... More

Just finished my open water certification with discovery divers! I recommend taking the theory online while at home to save yourself classroom time while on holidays. Our instructor was Nick, and I thought he was awesome, he was thorough and made sure you were comfortable with all skills before proceeding onto the next set of skills. I immediately felt comfortable... More

Loved our Christmas dive with Chris. She was amazing and a wonderful person to dive with. We saw so many beautiful fish and enjoyed both of our dives! I wish Chris could be our guide everywhere! The boat did "break down" twice for a short time on the trip. We also didn't receive information until the day before which made... More

Amanda, thank you for the review. Yes, Cris is available for hire anywhere in the world. Of course you might need to fly her husband and daughter with her.

We had an overall good experience with this dive center. Groups were fairly small on the boat (approx. 15 people plus instructors) with one dedicated instructor per family/couple. Our instructor Christine was very knowledgable, nice and easy going. She made our experience that much better and completely understood what we wanted from these dives. We were lucky enough to see...

Thank you for the nice review. We keep such a large full-time dive staff so that we are able to break down all of our divers into very small groups based on experience level or families and friends that wish to dive together. We hope to see you again diving with us. More
