So so so glad I picked Ian and Oui to go out with! Extremely easy to get along with, I felt at ease right away. They went out of their way to drop my nitrox course homework off to the hotel, so it'd be there when we arrived (we were on a rather tight schedule). Did my study the day... More

Ian and Oui delivered everything they promised and more. Being able to hire an underwater camera meant we now have some amazing photos to remember our experience of diving off Racha Noi and Racha Yai. My partner had never dived before and Oui's expert tuition had him feeling confident after his first dive and there was no holding him back... More

I booked the beginner course as I had no previous dive experience. The site ,Racha Yai island, was beautiful. I was extremly nervous, but Oui was amazing, I... More
