My wife and I dove 4 days with Scuba Cat out of Patong. I'm an HSA C level diver - C5/6 quad. Every morning Scuba Cat sent one of their small Toyota pick-up trucks over to our hotel to pick us up. They helped with the transfer and after a 30 minute drive we were out at the docks. There... More

Did my PADI OW and AOW. They are professionals. 1st class diving facilities combined with very skilled, funny and friendly staff. I loved their day trips. Every time i goto Phuket i have to visit this place for some days. Their Liveaboard in the Similans and North / South Andaman is of equal importance. I did one last November and... More

I went on the Discovery day yesterday 11.4.14. The crew and instructors were excellent; patient, supportive, friendly and encouraging. They gave me really good coaching and within the day I went from not having a clue about diving to mastering the basics. The booking process and customer service was also very good and the price competitive. Thank you for the... More

I went on a liveaboard trip for 4 days to the Similan Islands with Scuba Cat from March 27-31. It's hard to even do justice to the Scuba Cat team with just a few words, but I'll try: Kathryn, the Tour Leader - unbelievable. She is one of the most professional, yet still fun tour leaders I have ever had... More

My husband and I spent 4 days on a Scuba Cat Dive Boat over this past Christmas holiday up in the Similan Islands. The Scuba Cat crew were wonderful. Although we had a mixed group of divers, everyone enjoyed diving to their level . There were a few getting some advanced certifications but this did not impede the more experienced... More

One rolls the dice when booking a dive trip, but with Scuba Cat in Phuket, Thailand, it's a sure thing. Numerous 2-3 dive day trips, a 4 day live aboard, a well organized staff from front desk, transportation to dive masters; great food and ultimately a scenic, roomy, and well run boat trip to the dive sites all ensure you...
