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.

Easy, swift and pleasant experience from booking through the dives to the follow on emails with pictures available through drop box. The staff flexibly accomodated our needs for Open Water course completion for two of us and regular dives for the remaining two with dedicated instructor/guide. Special thanks to Nicola and Mark for making the dives memorable and fun. Sail... More

We came across Discovery Dive by accident as we were walking down the street after our dive trip with a different company had been cancelled for that day. Erik made the process of booking a dive for the following day easy as it was our last chance to dive before flying out. We were picked up from our hotel, all... More

I don't normally review activities/attractions BUT have just returned from the most fantastic day out at Sail Rock and felt that I had to recommend this experience to others. From making the initial booking to the final drop off back at the Hotel, everything was very efficient and professionally managed. The actual dives were wonderful with great visibility, huge numbers... More

I completed my Padi Open water certification with Discovery Divers Center and everything was just perfect. My instructor was THAO. He took me through the theory & the practical part of the certification and I trust I could not wish for a better teacher. I truly enjoyed all the dives around the Koh Tao. Perfect combination of the recreational diving... More

My wife and I had a great time with Discovery Divers. Our guide Arnold, and the rest of the gang at Discovery were awesome, and if we ever go back to Koh Samui, we'll definately use Discover Divers again.

Pretty decent dive shop. Found me a spot last minute on a speedboat to sail rock. Had two dives, got a one on one with a divemaster. Was professional - no complaints.
