I have dived with this shop for over 5 years, and I always look forward to diving with them. They have always been friendly and they make sure they take good care of you. They send boats out of Pattaya as well as Samesan. The diving is a bit better at Samesan but there is a slightly longer drive to... More

Excellent dive centre - professional staff who put safety first. Great dive boat and seem to be able to copy with many different nationalities. Ann is one of their regular instructors and if you want to see turtles off the island she's your girl. Equipment is good quality and the food at lunchtime is excellent.

Cost of the dive included pick up and drop at the hotel, diving equipment and lunch on the boat. We were a group of four guys, picked up on time. However after the dive we were not given the ride back, which was... More

The Dive Center put me up with a skilled Dive master (Ole), and two other divers (Alan and Natascha). We had a nice boat-ride out, three dives on a wreck and corals, a good lunch on the boat, and some "extra refreshments" on the way home. A good day.
