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.

Did a discovery dive with seafari and it was money well spent. Neil was pleasantly helpful during the booking procedure and the pick-up and drop off. The dive was very well organised - timely pick up, quality equipments, extremely safety conscious and an amazing couple of dives seperated by some exquisite thai lunch. Greg (Instructor) is extremely patient and a... More

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...

I speak on behalf of me and boyfriend and this truly was one of the best experiences of our lives and all thanks to Seafari. We signed up for the PADI Open Water diver course.

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
