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.

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...

And it was simply one of our best choices for having picked Seafari. Neil was really helpful from the very beginning. It all started via... More

I had no swimming skills or underwater experience but one of the things that was in my mind - " I should scuba dive at least once in my life". I walked into seafari and told Neil about that. He was very supportive and friendly and gave me quick tips which helped me compete my first two dives near Koh... More

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.
