Third time diving with KiwiDivers. Went back to take up my Advanced Open Water and Nitrox and I couldn't get or ask for a better instructor than Vincent. He was very patient, knowledgeable and overall the dive was very enjoyable, relaxing and fuss-free (save for some incidents that happened due to the boat captain's oversight~) Will love to come back...

I had originally scheduled to be on the Tec camp at Koh Lipe, yet due to personal restrictions, I had to bow out of the course just one week before the start date. The disappointment in Blackie's voice when I told him my decision was... palpable. Yet, at the time, I was seeking a sidemount BCD, and Blackie had leads... More

From the first enquiry I was made to feel very welcome. Kevin the owner responded to an initial chat via Facebook almost immediately. With a few dives under my belt I could have just been brought along for the ride but I was made to feel like a client and not a tourist and there's a big difference. My guide... More

I did my open water and advanced open water course with Kiwidiver in Phuket. I did all the theory and knowledge reviews back home via PADI e-learning, so I was well prepared. On the first day I was introduced to my instructor Vincent, and watched all the instructional videos. The next day we did all the pool dives in a... More

Can totally recommend Kiwidiver, if you are considering a dive in Phuket. Diver master, Vincent, was experienced, helpful and knew the terrain he was diving very well. The hire gear was of good quality and he provided an excellent service. Thank you Vincent for an awesome couple of days diving.

I did a 3 dive day trip with Kiwi Divers. Wonderful staff! Vincent hooked me up with proper fitting gear, and John was an excellent guide underwater. I will definitely be linking up with Kiwi Divers in December for one of their night dives.

Awesome dive shop! Vincent was very helpful and honest with my friend and I. We visited in the off season which means weather is very unpredictable. They were very honest with us and told us it wouldn't be the best dive because of the weather. We wanted to go so we went with him. It ended up being an awesome... More

I completed my open water dive course with Vincent, who is an excellent instructor, very patient, and explains everything really well so you always feel safe and comfortable, especially when learning new skills. I also appreciated that Vince knew the many types wildlife very well, so we were able to identify a lot on the dives. The shop is very... More

This is a well run, professional dive centre. I did my open water referral here and all aspects of the experience including the equipment, transfer and boat and crew were of high quality. My instructor (Vincent) was excellent, inspiring confidence and suggesting alternative techniques for skills I found difficult. Highly recommended.

I was looking for a place for my son to do his Discover Scuba Diving and for me to get a couple of dives in.
