We booked and payed for a liveaboard. 38000 baht. When we returned next day to try out equipment the shop was empty. As others have stated, the owner took everything of value in the shop and disapeared. STAY AWAY FROM FRANKIE D HEWER! He is now wanted by the police.

Confirming the previous comment, the owner Franky D Hewer is a thief and a liar. We paid the 50% deposit via paypal 10 days before the liveaboard, on the 5th of February. Everything was set and we were very excited about this. Today, 16th of Feb, we arrive at airport, nobody to pick us up, all phone numbers out of... More

Eden Divers stole 34,000 THB from us and 15,000 THB from another customer. Do not book anything with the shop in Khao Lak, it appears they are no longer in operation. We booked a 4day/4night liveaboard with Eden Divers, due to visit the Similans and Northern sites from 8/02/14 - 12/02/14. We met with staff in person several days before... More

Having read some of the recent reviews I was starting to worry about our liveaboard booking with Eden Divers. This was our first liveaboard but we are experienced divers. The early evening pick up from Phuket which was an hour away was included and we then sailed through the night for our 3 night trip. We had a master cabin... More

My wife and I just came back from a liveaboard with this company with very mixed emotions. The boat was called Sea of Fantasy I, and we went to Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock. We are both experienced divers, thus we have experienced other liveaboards and day boats, but unfortunately we can not in any way recommend this... More

We have never been on a diving liveaboard before, (we are not that experienced in scuba diving) and it was an amazing start, with Eden Divers. We booked our 4 night / 3 days liveaboard several months before our trip, and everything was managed via emails with Franky, from Eden Divers Khao Lak, who even booked a Hotel Room for... More
