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...

If you want to go diving in the beautiful sites near Koh Lanta, do it with Dive and Relax. We did our Advanced Open Water Course along with 6 fun dives with them and we had the best service one can ask for. We absolutely recommend them to any diver, from a first timer to a dive master. Expect very... More

Firstly I feel I must put straight older comments made by previous reviewers about the suitability of this company's approach to completely novice divers. In my experience, you won't find better. I have previously dived and completed my PADI qualifications. My wife hadn't, but always said she'd try it one day. We were looking at what to do in Ko... More

We choose Dive and Relax for our first scuba diving experience after reading the TripAdvisor reviews. We walked in to Dive and Relax at Koh Lanta and were fortunate enough to be able to schedule our discover scuba experience. We were given a thorough walkthrough of the discover dive process. On the day of our dive, we met with our... More

We choose Dive & Relax to complete our 4 open water dives and finish our PADI certification (had done classroom/confined water in the US prior to traveling). Unfortunately my husband and I were sick with food poisoning on the morning of our first dive and I was nervous anyway, so the day wasn't ideal - but our instructor Adam and... More

The name actually says it all. Dive and Relax is a very good diving school with good and fun instructors. Everyone is just very relaxed and gives you the time you need before, during and after diving. Equipment is of very good quality and quite new. Your gear has already been set up when you get on board, you just... More

My husband and I along with our best friends decided to try Dive & Relax as a water activity while staying at Lanta Castaway resort. None of us 4 had scuba-dived before and were a little nervous. We decided to try the discovery dive because we just couldn't leave Koh Lanta without diving. Right away when walking into the Dive... More

We recently stayed on Koh Lanta at Lanta Castaway where Dive and Relax has a shop. My wife and our two friends were very excited to try scuba diving (it was all of our first time) but I wasn't as much because I'm not a great swimmer and am not the most comfortable in water. I decided to do it... More

I corresponded with this company prior to arriving on Koh Lanta. They were very helpful and explained details in full for all the options available to me. I did two days of diving, with a refresher on the first day. All the instructors were really helpful, informative and enthusiastic. All made an effort to speak to me as I was... More

My wife and I dived with Dive & Relax for the second time over the New Year period. Once again the service was excellent, with friendly, helpful divemasters & boat staff, as well as the office team. All of the equipment was in great condition, as were the boats. Thanks Cameron & all at Dive & Relax!

My partner and I dived with Dive & Relax for 2 days - a scuba refresh and diving at Koh Bida on our first day and a trip to Hin Muang/Hin Daeng on the second day. Our experience was truly exceptional from start to finish - communication with the team before we arrived was efficient, the boat and equipment quality... More
