Had 6 days diving with this company. I e mailed them before going to Pattaya. Quick replies back from Dave who owns the company. Booked the diving with Kim in the shop. I thought I would be diving from both Pattaya and Samae San. However when I started diving the next day I found out the Pattaya boat went into... More

I found the shop by simply walking down Beach Road. I did two days of diving with Pattaya Dive Center. Services were exceptional. The first trip was to SamaeSan with the second trip to the Pattaya near islands. Over 4 dives I got to experience wreck, reef, and drift (current) diving. Highly recommended as they were easy to coordinate with.

Great staff ad always trying to oblige. We are avid wreck divers and often find that while dive shops promise wreck diving, on the day they often come up with excuses as to why they "must" go to a local, poor dive site rather than a wreck site which is further away. Andy always got us to the site he... More

My experience with the Pattaya Dive Centre was absolutely amazing! I signed up for the Open Water Diving Course as I've been wanting to let my license and dive regularly for a very long time and after the entire 3 day course, I've got absolutely no regrets. My instructor, Bjørnar, was humorous, patient and knowledgeable. Although, during the course, we... More

Our Instructor, ANN was just brilliant (and in my case seriously patient). There is a wide range of courses on offer from 1 day sesions for first timers to... More
