I have always wanted to try diving but was very hesitant, but after meeting Lawrence I no longer had any fears or worries as he throughly explained everything and answered all my concerns before we started.

It’s really important to find a guide who keeps professionalism and safety their number one priority when diving in a destination location. Lawrence does this while maintaining a fun and relaxed. I would recommend him for anyone who wants to dive, be it a beginner, or someone who’s looking for an advanced excursion.

Lawrence is an excellent dive guide, and will not hesitate to stop you, in the name of safety! I'm a new diver, and Lawrence helped me along the way, especially during the current dives. He is very knowledgeable and experienced, and loves to share his diving passion with his divers. 5 stars!!

Lawrence is an incredible instructor that is flexible and open minded, without sacrificing safety or material. Lawrence has a great knowledge of not only the dive sites the area has to offer, but of the town as well. He can recommend places to see and eat, when you are not in the water. Not the over-priced tourist trap with self-serving... More

I was a on a live-aboard with Lawrence through the Similan Islands and Richelieu Rock. He has a great eye and he was able to spot some incredible nudibranch and other small life that I may not have seen otherwise.
