We were so pleased that on our return visit to Phuket after 3 years, Rachel and Joel were still running this dive centre. I couldn't dive with them last time as I had ear problems but was so glad to get in the water with them on this visit. Whilst I have been certified for some years, because of the... More

Rachel was recommended by owner of our hotel. Gave it a go and so glad we did. Kids (12 and 14) had not been diving for a year. Rachel discussed safety first as well as best value for money. Hence we went for Kata beach dive first day for a bit of a refresher. Joel got us kitted out, dropped... More

I had some time to grab a dive and stumbled into Oceanic after doing the rounds.These guys really make an effort to let you know what dives would suit you and I really appreciated thier honesty instead of the "hard sell". In the end I just dived the local reef at Kata beach which was an entertaining and easy shore... More

We had a great experience with Joel from Oceanic Divecentre. Went for a couple of dives around Phi Phi and nearby Islands. The dives themselves were really amazing – location, time, right dive locations for conditions. Joel, the divemaster, was awesome. He was super helpful and knows the area like the back of his hand. I’d heard that diving in... More

I've dived a lot around Asia (inc Phi Phi... More
