Owner description: 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.

My husband dives around internationally now, and he really likes this group. It is the group that did his certification as well. Highly recommend for both certification as well as dive tours.

Suppose a best diving Club in Pattaya! Very Professional Staff, possibility to pass initial PDI training and get certificate. Of course it is not a dive in Sharm el Sheikh or Maldives but any way nice to see local underwater life!

Though the visibility wasn't perfect, it was a lovely wreck (2 actually) filled with fish and corals. It was a lot of fun to dive there, the instructors were quite fun and knowledgable, I was also surprised by the sheer amount of marine life (I had heard many things about Pattaya and many of them not good at all) so...
