Owner description: Avoid the crowds; dive and snorkel in very small groups with a focus on great personal service, safety and fun. Departing from the beach each morning at 9am, our two speedboats carry a maximum of 10 divers each to some of the best dive sites in Thailand. PADI courses available in several languages, and with typical group sizes of just 2 or 3 divers with each divemaster or instructor (max 4), diving is more than just a job for us. Enjoy our PADI 5-Star service and let some of the most experienced, friendly and professional dive instructors on Koh Lanta take care of you while you just sit back, dive and relax...

From the first email from Dive and Relax to the actual dive, my experience with this small Dive shop was excellent. I had never even snorkeled before, let alone scuba dived, so I was an absolute beginner. I explained this over email and the staff suggested what would be best for me, right down to which day I should dive... More

Everything was perfect... Starting from the pick up at the hotel, then small briefing ( we were doing snorkeling for the first time), then the trip to the island koh haa nice snorkeling with a lot of beautiful fishes, the crew was very helpful and I appreciated that we were just a small group. Lunch and drinks are provided so... More

My friend and I decided to start diving this year. As he already tried it before he chose Dive and Relax at Koh Lanta from the Reviews on Tripadvisor. What a great choice! As I never dived before I wanted to go for the certificate to learn all the skills (I was a little scared but absolutely wanted to try... More

I completed part of my open water course with Dive & Relax in October and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. There was a large rain system moving through when I first arrived, but Cameron did everything he could to get me out diving. I finished the course with Pan, who is a great instructor, and then did...

I can only echo all the positive comments made by others on here. From popping in to talk about booking my dives, to the dives themselves, everyone at Dive and Relax was incredibly friendly and professional. For 3900baht (4300baht if you go to the Ko Haa National Marine Park - 400baht entrance fee), you get two hour long dives, at... More

Me and my girlfriend spent a few weeks in Thailand, including 6 nights in Ko Lanta. We stayed at Lanta Castaway Resort, where Dive and Relax is based. We initially found the cost to be quite high compared to other islands such as Ko Tao, but the experience turned out to be worth it. On the first days diving, we... More

I was diving for the first time in about 8 years...signed up for the renew skills class which included diving and I was so glad I did. I got that initial underwater scariness away, ( which I didn't expect at all), and was then very comfortable.

We pre booked three days of diving with this company before we arrived on Koh Lanta. We really appreciated the email correspondence beforehand - easy and informative. What appealed to us about this company was the small group numbers they take out diving. The boat ride out to the dive sites was fun and lunch was great. Special thanks to... More

I loved diving with Dive and Relax. I had never dived before, always been too scared! Figured my trip to Thailand was the best place to try, so I did it. The entire staff was supportive, friendly, and encouraging, but in a very calm way. From my initial email and booking with Cameron, to my initial paperwork meeting with Senna,... More

We had 4 great dives with Dive and relax. 2 in Ko haa and 2 in Ko bida. We actually extended our stay in Ko Lanta to dive, as the day we had wanted to go they were fully booked. We did not regret the decision. So much so that that we extended again to dive again. Our instructor Oh... More
