I went to Phuket specifically to complete my PADI open water practice dives in good water with visibility and more importantly to spot some good marine along the way. I wasn't disappointed! First, the facilities: At the Dive centre the place is cool and chilled with a little learning room, toilets and refreshments. On board the boats the toilets were... More

The price was great and the professionalism of the dive master was impeccable. He really took care of everything for me and I was well taken care of. The boat was nice and included great food. We saw some sea horses, sea snakes, and all kind of great aquatic life. I'm an inexperienced diver with only 28 dives in the... More

Dive sites weren't that great, but I knew half a day would not get me out to the better sites. But I enjoyed my two long dives with Jamie very... More

I spent 11 days doing my PADI IDC at Kiwidivers in February 2015. Owner Kevin Black was a tremendous help in providing logistical support for the course. The classroom that was dedicated to our IDC use was very conducive to the instruction and presentations that we participated in. There was almost daily diving activity at a pool across town and...

Another excellent experience with Vincent one year on from our last trip in Dec '13. Ever the consummate professional, Vincent took care of all the details and provided a superb diving holiday. He even paid close personal attention to the catering and provided very tasty food. As before, his thorough knowledge of the area above and below the surface, mastery... More
