Big thank you to sub aqua, and in particular marc for setting me up with a great dive out to racha islands. I had no experience diving in thailand and was unfamiliar with where to go, and i was recommended an awesome spot to go to suit my limited diving experience.

Big thanks to Simon on the day (and Marc in the office), the day ran very smoothly from pick up, equipment set up to drop off nothing was to much trouble. My partner did not dive and was able to snorkel at the same locations that we dived at so again a bonus if you do not dive. Simon took... More

Many thanks to Simon and Marc for looking after us so well. We went to the free trail in the Ocean Beach pool at 11am one morning and quickly signed up for the 3 day Open Water course. They were very flexible on which days we could do, so we spread them out over the fortnight. We were able to... More

I can't praise the Sub Aqua Dive Centre enough it is such a professional dive centre compared to others I have used whilst on holiday. The equipment is in excellent order and the instructor Jonathan was brilliant. The breakfast and lunch on the boat were freshly cooked and very good as were the pancakes on the return boat journey. I... More

Well I managed to bribe the wife to allow me to do diving for the day while she took our 5 year old son to go and feed the fish on a boat trip. Since I was the only person going out diving that day as there was a lot of guests doing scuba training in the pool, I could... More

First we went to the diving hour in the Hilton Arcadia pool offered almost daily by Sub Aqua Dive Center at 11 a.m., in the... More

We were staying at Hilton Acadia and took the short walk to Sub Aqua Dive Center to book our dive trip for the next day and be fitted for all of our equipment. This saved a lot of time the next morning as when we met Simon (Dive Master) he already had everything we needed packed and loaded. We joined... More
