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.

This was my first time diving from a high speed dive boat. It's a bit bumpy and can be wet but you get to the dive sites ached of the big displacement boats. Discovery divers are well organised and very professional but very relaxed. Don't expect Red Sea visibility but the quantity and variety of marine life more than makes... More

My husband and I went on a Discover Dive (I think that's what its called) on our honeymoon in March. I had never dived before, am nervous in the water and don't like having my face covered so I was a bit anxious. I realised quickly though that there was no reason to worry. The team is absolutely fantastic. I... More

I've never been scuba diving before and had a wonderful experience with Discovery. Jen from Germany was my instructor and ensured I had a great time and got my money's worth. The other beginner had a tough time getting started due to breathing/ear issues and Jen was able to quickly get the problems resolved. Based on my experience with Discovery,... More

I completed my advanced open water diver course 12/19-12/21, in this wonderful place with wonderful people. Thanks my coach Arnauld, and thanks Eric, of course thanks all guys in Discovery. I will come back again!

I came to discovery dive as I needed to do four open water dives to get padi certified. My Master diver/Instructor Nick couldn't have been the nicest guy. Clear and concise with his instructions knew every inch of the dive sites and looked after me over the two days. And got certified to be an open water diver. Great times,... More

With about 30-40 dives with Discovery Divers, I would be remiss not to review them on here. Despite the fact that we picked what was probably the worst time to go diving (monsoon AND full moon), they managed to find good diving for us every day. Pick up at the hotel is included in the price and this was extremely... More
