This was my third dive with Phuket Scuba Club and as with my previous dives everything was handled professionally, friendly and above all I had an awesome time. I booked a 2 night 3 day live-aboard to the Similan Islands through Phuket Scuba Club. Booking was hassle free and as always every detail of the dive and the trip was... More

The word "great" is not enough to describe the awesomeness of our experience with "Phuket Scuba Club". Mr. Kevan is very accommodating and easy to talk with from email and in person. He even offered a dive instructor to go with us since we just had our Open Water certification. The morning of our dive, our dive instructor Devon is... More

We decided to do a quick shore dive before heading out to the Similans on a liveaboard and chose to do this from the Kata branch of PSC. We were about an hour late due to transport issues but we were still able to do the dive with our own private guide. the BCDs and regulators were in good condition... More

I had been thinking to do my Advanced Open Water certification for a while and finally decided to take the plunge. Phuket Scuba Club informed me of the option to do the course while also taking a trip out to the Similans before the park closes for the season. It sounded like a brilliant idea to kill two birds with... More

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
