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

We took a PADI diving course with Dive & Relax and had the most wonderful time. Staff were amazing and very competent, always with safety in their mind but a lot of fun as well. Really good speed boat rides, providing fast trips to underwater heaven!! Thanks to Wade for sharing 4 of our best days in South East Asia... More

We did the 'Discover Scuba Diving' experience with Relax and Dive at Ko Lanta. We have had no experience of scuba diving in the past and whilst travelling around Thailand we felt that it would be something we would like to experience and after a bit of research we decided that R&D seemed to have a good reputation and good...

Would highly recommended Dive & Relax! I completed my Open Water dive course with D&R in March. I absolutely loved my diving experience with D&R. I only contacted them a couple of days before arriving on Ko Lanta, but got really quick responses with all the information I needed. All members of staff I met were really friendly and professional.... More

My girlfriend and I have chosen to go for the PADI Open Water Diver with Dive&Relax. Besides the fast and thorough responses by Cameron, the key argument was their speed boats. In contrast to the bigger boats, you are able to reach the dive sites within an hour or less. Sure, a big boat is more comfortable, has a sun... More

It was my first time scuba diving and I had a great experience. The people are friendly and well organized. Scuba diving was a lot easier than I thought. It was an amazing experience to see the beauty underwater. This was the best thing I did on my whole vacation. If I ever get back to Thailand, I will definitely... More

You reserve the day or so before and fill out the paperwork on the beach or in their office. At that time they size you for your equipment and wetsuit, which they put together and is ready and prepped on the boat when they pick you up from the beach the morning of your dive. Because they have speedboats, they... More

A week ago, I went to Hin Daeng, Hin Muang for Ko Haa for the last dives on an excellent holiday in Thailand. I had also dived around the Similan islands the week before but this was a special experience - at Hin Daeng, we spent about 40 of 63 minutes underwater in the company of giant Manta rays! Thank...

From contacting them at home to book the Open Water course over getting informed about the upcoming dives on site to actually going on the dives, everything was very well organised. All the people I spoke with from Dive&Relax were friendly and helpful. I had a great experience and would definitely use them again if in the region. I especially... More

#1 on tripadvisor isn't always a guarantee of a good time. I won't say they lied to my girlfriend and I, but they definitely chose their words carefully. Their website says the fee for entry into the marine parks is included in their prices. But what they don't tell you until it's time to pay, is that it only covers... More

Hello Jamie, We regret that you did not enjoy your time with us, and we would like to clarify some of your comments: 1) The Koh Lanta National Marine Park fee is comprised of 2 parts, a 400 Baht per person national park park entry fee and a 200 Baht per person diving fee (the diving fee does not have...
