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

This was our first ever experience of scuba diving - Nicole was very patient and helped us all have a great time. I was very nervous but with encouragement I managed to dive and enjoy it, I would definitely try again on another holiday. The children snorkelled with a fun chap from the boat and they had the best time.... More

Enjoyed a trip to Sail Rock in April 2014, and experienced such great service i had to book them again for my August 2014 trip. Great speed boat, takes you to sail rock much faster than the cheaper companies on Samui offering similar trips. Also gear in great condition, friendly, competent staff, everything very laid back and cosy. Great lunch,... More
