Haven't been diving in 7 years so I was actually a little nervous. My girlfriend never dove before. We booked a three dive trip to Phi Phi and shark point (refresher and discover scuba). From the time Andy picked us up throughout the whole trip we were taken care of very professionally and with a lot of humor which made... More

Booked 11 dives in 4 days with Andys. Totally professional, great dive instructor, too. Great time! I will use them again if I go back. They took care of everything. Phuket is a chaotic place, but Andy's seems very stable.

This was the first experience to discover scuba diving. I would say this is more than perfect which i imagined. Instructor Matt was very helpful and did everything to make it comfortable for me. I would like to again try in future with Andy Scuba. Thanks again to Matt.

I was recommended by a friend who got certified with Andy few years ago. I did three dives today and had an amazing time. Andy is very patient and thoughtful. Our last dive at the shark point was disrupted by strong currents, but Andy held on to my hands and made sure I would be ok and still tried his... More

I dived with Andy's team back in October 2013 and had a wonderful time. I have since followed Andy's Facebook site where he posts very professional photos. This prompted me to return and do my PADI Digital Underwater Photography course with him one to one. What he taught me was personalized to my needs and far exceeded the expectations of... More

I say without hesitation, that Andy Cross is the best guide I have had the pleasure of diving with. As an example, one three tank dive had to be cancelled half-way to Pei Pei islands... More
