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...

The next morning we got on a speedboat and found our "personalized"... More

I had a blast doing my first dive ever with Dive and Relax. The speed boat to the island was fast and fun and my dive instructor Mayumi was super competent and made be feel comfortable as a complete beginner. The conditions on both dives were great, 25m visibility, lots to look at. Can't wait to come back for more.

I went for the Discover Scuba Dive and they were extremely professional, ensured we were comfortable, helped us understand equipments and had a great instructor. After we got back, Adam even sat with us with a book on marine life and helped identify the fishes / corals we saw. Very good dive experience, will definitely recommend.

Went here to do my open water diving course. One of the nicest staff I've encountered anywhere, and Raul was the best instructor I've had for anything in years. Very knowledgable, patient and work with you to teach you how to dive as best as they can, no matter your skill level.
