Can't recommend Oceanic Divers enough. There are some pretty dodgy dive companies in Thailand and you have to be careful in tourist areas like Phuket. Oceanic make it all so easy and everything I asked for I got with a smile. Rachel will handle all your biking needs via email before you even get there and deposits are all really... More

Spent an amazing days diving last Saturday with Oceanic. It was our 3rd time using this company and as always Rachel was quick to respond to emails and was extremely accommodating to our needs. Phil our guide was brilliant. Would definitely recommend these guys and am looking forward to our next trip. Thanks to all the team at Oceanic.

Rachel made us feel welcome and explained everything in full detail right from the moment we walked into the shop. Phil did a 3 day SSI Open water course with me. From theory to pool training and then 5... More

If you're a diver go for it (my friend had an awesome day with private guide Phil) but as a snorkeler I would opt for a company with individual boat or snorkelling focus next time around, rather than shared space with other dive companies as is the case with Oceanic. Unfortunately I believe Oceanic assumed the boat Tour Guide would... More

My daughter wanted to learn how to dive and you can imagine all the worries that might go with that. The Oceanic Dive Centre proved to be a gem and its best if you hear it from her herself: Being sixteen I was anxious, excited and cautious when I walked into the dive centre; however, I was made to feel...

Booked with Oceanic on the recommendation of another dive company (as they were fully booked). It was a great recommendation :) . I hadn't dived for ages and my reg wasn't working properly - as we suited up before the first dive, it became apparent that my air gauge wasn't working. You can't dive without that :) Phil organised a... More

I did my advanced PADI open water training with oceanic and it was defenetly worthed. They offer nice diving sites and the service is perfect. They pick you up at your hostel and take care of everything. Also, afeter the dives, we chilled out back at the dive center drinking some beers with the staff.Really nice. Thanks again to Rachel...

Wow, where to start. Having arrived late in Kata, Rachel and Joel had stayed open expecting me. I had a tight timescale I had to keep to and they accommodated me every step of the way. Not only are they great people they really know their stuff. I did my PADI Advanced Open Water with them and I wasn't disappointed.... More

I came to Phuket so that I could learn something new. I was curious about diving and was very fortunate to walk into Oceanic dive centre. Rachel and Joel greeted me warmly and explained the different packages that were available. Despite my timeframes being short and being a busy time of the year they were able to get me started...
