Seafari Dive Center was the first scuba diving operation to open in Pattaya and one of the first in Thailand. Founded by Bill Burbridge back in 1970, it's still actively serving scuba divers from all over the world. If experience is "the best teacher", we've got more than 35 years of it and that certainly says something! Why not come and join us for a great days diving or try one of our introductory courses which run all the way through to instructor levels? Look forward to seeing you.

Neal has always been a really nice person to deal with. Andy is a very, very good, safe instructor. I have been back more than a few times and am returning to complete my DM with Andy. The fact that I return and will again says more than my words can. Go! Dive! You'll be glad for it.

Had a most enjoyable day with two snorkelling sessions (different locations) and a delicious on board lunch. The visibility in the water a little poor on this day but still plenty of interesting sea life to observe. Equipment was excellent, staff friendly, helpful and informative. Trip to and from the island was also good. Thoroughly recommend this operator.

Whilst on holiday in Pattaya this month (May 2015), myself and a couple of mates spent a really great day diving organised by Seafari. The owner Neil couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Two of us are qualified divers and the third did a discovery dive and went on to complete his PADI OW qual over the next three... More
