As a first time diver I was a kinda nervous, but the whole crew made the dives very enjoyable. Adam (my dive instructor) was very patient and encouraging and made my whole experience amazing. Would recommend South Siam Divers to anyone!

With my family we did a 1 - day diving trip to Koh Racha Yai and it was way better than I expected. All day long someone was taking care of us, explaining everything step by step and smiling :)) Food was included and it was really tasty! Then we got a really friendly instructor who introduced all the diving... More

Dived on a 1 day trip with.They had their LOB ship available which was really good because the waves were crazy high there were only 3 boats out for dives on the day. Even with the LOB, quite a few OWC divers were very seasick despite taking the seasick pill. I had a local DM (Pui)to myself and I must... More

Had a great instructor from the UK, Phil Rogers and was fortunate to have one on one instruction. Pool lesson went well and although the open water visibility was very poor I still enjoyed obtaining my open water license. Would recommend Phil to anyone who is thinking of taking a PADI coarse in Phuket. The coffee was also very good... More

Our dive operator booked us on a small boat owned by South Siam Divers. The day before our scheduled dive, I was told that there were 15 divers (including instructors/DM), plus staff. However, when we got there, there were probably 25-30 divers, plus another 4-5 staff. The occupancy was double than what we expected. I understand economically it's best to... More

A Caribbean diver’s review First of all I have to say the country of Thailand is amazing and it should be on everyone’s bucket list. I’m not going to go into a lot of detail as far as food, crews, transportation and such goes as there’s lots of information on this in other reviews, but for the record I didn’t... More

I spent 2 days and 1 night with the South Siam crew during a liveaboard dive trip. The rooms were basic but very clean and the boat had plenty of showers so that you never really had to wait to use one. Food was great and I cannot say enough about the staff..they are wonderful! The entire crew from guides... More
