The diving isnt the best in Thailand but the dive master we had was very good and showed us lots of very nice marine animals. Friendly people on the boat and all in all a good day out at a good price too.... More

200 logged worldwide dives. The best dives (for me) are when I dive, I want to be within as clear distance (visibility) as possible. I also want to see and interact with as much marine life as I can..(..spoiled I guess:p) Although in a huge tank, you submerge and become a part of a huge population of marine life. No... More

I have dived all over Thailand but without a doubt my best experiences have been with Pattaya Dive Centre . They do small groups and their prices range from 3000 to 3300 baht (A$110-$130) which includes everything including 2 dives and free lunch. Andy Jennings (A Pom) is an absolute Master Diver and carrys a camera and will take photos... More

I found the shop by simply walking down Beach Road. I did two days of diving with Pattaya Dive Center. Services were exceptional. The first trip was to SamaeSan with the second trip to the Pattaya near islands. Over 4 dives I got to experience wreck, reef, and drift (current) diving. Highly recommended as they were easy to coordinate with.

Great staff ad always trying to oblige. We are avid wreck divers and often find that while dive shops promise wreck diving, on the day they often come up with excuses as to why they "must" go to a local, poor dive site rather than a wreck site which is further away. Andy always got us to the site he... More
