I had a great time diving with Seafari in Pattaya! Everyone at Seafari (management, instructors, captain, driver, ..) work very professional. They definitely know what they are doing. Seafari is also the only dive center in Pattaya that works together with Dive Tribe (a research and conservation organisation that tries to protect coral reefs in Thailand).

The boat is spacious and very comfortable. The top deck has a great area to sit back and relax while travelling to the dive sites, or... More

I researched dive shops in Pattaya for my first dive experience. I t couldn't have been better. I did a second day and plan to use them to get certified next time. They are very professional and fun to be around.

Big thanks to Neil, for arranging the dive trips for the boy and myself. We had a great day on the coral and both James and Alex were blown away by the dive on the Hardeep. Big thanks to Greg, for the coral dives and Oz and Luke for the hardeep.

I've been diving with Seafari when I visit Pattaya for a couple of years now and I've never been disappointed. A small friendly dive center with a familiar atmosphere. Professional staff and good equipment. They have always used boats with lots of space and good food. Sure will be back next time I come to Pattaya.

A very helpful an laid back dive centre. with the most spacious dive boat I have ever come across. A helpful captain (post dive beers on sale) and boatwife (hot meals at lunchtime between dives) Good dive guides who were knowledgeable and easily able to locate themselves in less than ideal visibility. I was impressed that our guide Ozzie noticed... More
