I booked with this crew because they appeared high on the Trip Advisor ratings, but have to say I was pretty disappointed with the day. To his credit, the owner picked me up the day before from hotel so we could do the paperwork, fit equipment, and pay, then dropped me back again. But at no point did he tell... More

So sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your daytrip to Koh Racha Yai. However I would like to point out that we cannot control the weather and at no time were you in any danger. It was rather windy on the 8th and the boats opted to dive at the more protected sites in order to suit both... More

First went out to do two dives with my friend, for the experience. After that we definitely wanted to be certified divers. We knew we already were on a good place. (Thanks to Mick) So we did a PADI course here and it was so easy to pass all this because of the skilled and calm instructors. Without them I... More

This is my first Diving certification with Padi. Right from the moment I've started it was perfect. Chantal has arranged for my accomodation right behind the scuba club and it was pretty good. Devon was my instructor and he's been very professional right from the start. Very particular with his rules and I guess it’s good for a beginner. Devon... More

A return visit after four years and I am so pleased to find that everything is just the same. An awesome club to dive with, fantastic owners and a great group of knowledgable instructors. If you are planning on diving in this area PSC is the place to go!! In fact I'll be returning again in May :)

I would like to say "thank you" to the whole Team. I never thought that I will be a diver. I made the course to do my friend a favour. Chantal noticed that I was unsafe and Sharon assigned us as Instructor. Sharon has a very quiet and patient kind. When I have felt unwell under water, Sharon could calm... More

I randomly stumbled upon PSC when researching a place to stay on Phuket, away from Patong, whilst doing my rescue diver course. PSC had such good reviews on Tripadvisor, I decided to check them out. Chantal was quick and comprehnsive in her response to my email query and Kuta Beach seemed like a place I could spend my holiday, so... More

It was a pleasure meeting you and thank you for diving with us at the club. Your review is great and we are really pleased that you enjoyed your time with us. For sure we had some good times and plenty of laughter. But remember - never give rescue breaths to a breathing diver! :-) Take care and hugs from... More
