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...

Not only did Dive and Relax manage to put on a whale shark for us they made our whole experience fantastic. My son, 8yrs, has not stopped talking about how good Adam was and how he now wants to be a Dive Master. It is a big thing to trust your child to someone else and Adam gained ours and... More

First time diving, and did my Open Water PADI course with Dive & Relax. All staff members I encountered were relaxed, very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I got a one-on-one course with Nim, who was very patient with me and let me explore the wonderful marine life at my own pace. The speedboat was great, the dive sites were great,... More

In researching our discover scuba trip we contacted multiple dive agencies in Ko Lanta. Cameron from dive and relax got back to us almost instantly with information so perfect I couldn't really think of any more questions! His communication made the whole experience so easy for us, we felt confident that this company would not disappoint. We were given clear... More

My boyfriend and I did our open water course with Dive & Relax in 2013 and had returned to complete the advanced open water course with them earlier - definitely the right call! :) Special thanks to Cameron and Pan! Our instructor was professional and attentive, and everything was pretty well-organized (delicious lunch on board!) with very efficient and helpful... More

We had a great time with the instructors and other staff at this small, privately owned diving company. Smaller groups mean more personal attention in a relaxed atmosphere. The staff are all super helpful and friendly, while maintaining a high level of professionalism. The owner, Cameron, even assisted with information on taxis and accommodation before our arrival. We highly recommend... More

What an excellent dive center! Great staff, professional instructors and divemasters. They work with joy and everything is well organized. Perfect diving gear and two nice and well equiped speedboats for quick transfers to the dive spots. They dive with small groups and 'avoid the crowds' is what they really do. So, nothing to complain. Special thanks to Rhi. It... More

I arranged things by email from the UK before our trip to Koh Lanta and the replies were really quick and from Cameron ( a guy from the UK) so no trouble with language. I wanted to dive Hin Daeng and Hin Muang as much as I could and the big boats take (4 hours) to get there and then... More

Dive and relax is one of the best dive operations I've been able to dive with. It had been a year and a half since we had last gone diving. The boats are fast and groups are very small. We were supposed to be there in Feb but a major snowstorm kept us from getting out of our home airport,... More

My husband and I really enjoyed diving with Dive & Relax. They are extremely professional, perfectly organized and so friendly. You feel safe and relaxed all of the time since you dive in tiny groups (one guide for one or two divers!). Thank you for the great diving! Ana & Clemens
