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... « less

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

As someone who has had a deep rooted fear of being under water the PADI was always going to be a challenge but I could not have picked a better company to help me face my fears. Through his professional, relaxed and confident manner their instructor Wade has opened the under water world to me. From the point of pick... More

Dive and Relax were the perfect choice for my first diving experience. They're very friendly and helpful, and you feel like you're in good hands when diving with them. Could not really expect more from them - very professional and fun. Would recommend anyone to dive with this outfit. I did the Discover Scuba Diving experience which was one day... More

My husband and I booked our PADI course at Dive and Relax. Right from the first email they were responsive to all our questions. We had Lucy as our instructor (one instructor for the two of us) and she was perfect, explaining things very clearly and she was very patient. I was somewhat nervous about diving but she immediately put... More

This was the best thing we did while travelling Thailand for 1 month. Dive & Relax were so professional and made everything fun and easy to understand. Our lessons took place in the sun and the diving was amazing - we saw a tigertail seahorse, leopard shark, whale sharks, turtles (my favourite) and octopuses. We dove with Robin and Oh... More

I have always wanted to try diving, whereas my wife needed a lot of convincing to try it. It felt foolish to not give it a go whilst in Thailand so am I glad I found Dive and Relax! After an initial search, after initial email conversations with a few shops, I setttled on going into their shop with my... More
