My Daughter (OWD - 1405EF0498) and myself (MSDI - 923538) did our first Thailand Dive here in Pattaya @ the pattaya dive centre. Our lovely guide Ann showed us turtles during a nice drift dive (even the view is not that good at this time in year). The diving stuff, security environment (e.g. oxygen) and the boat are higher class... More

The normal training pool was out of order so we had yo use a supplementary neighborhood pool (only 3 m deep); very poor visibility in confined water lessons, but great experience. Overall... More

We caught the bug when we did an exploratory dive in Australia's Great Barrier Reef. So we started doing the research in Pattaya for Dive shops. Basically there are 3-4 english speaking reputed Dive shops. We finally settled on Pattaya Dive center after exchanging emails with David. I was doing the course with my nephew (age 19) and my son...

Had a phenomenal time diving with Pattaya Dive Center and completing my AOW course. The staff was excellent and very attentive to the needs of the customers. Each day consisted of grabbing our equipment, walking to the beach where a little inflatable boat would take us out to the big boat (who's Captain is hilarious I might add). From here... More

I took my open water test here and although the dive site had poor visibility the experience was wonderful for a first time diver. If you are looking for a great instructor, ask for Andy!

I haven't been diving in many years and decided to get my Advanced Open Water certification. I looked around and decided on The Pattaya Dive Center and had a fantastic experience.
