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...

We had several days diving with Dive and Relax during our stay on the island. Very happy with their friendly and same time professional approach. Initial communication via email was great, very easy to plan. Dive trips are well organised. The briefings at the beginning and end of the trip were very helpful, allowing us to fill out log books...

A very professional and well run service. We booked in for a snorkelling trip to Ko Haa before our arrival in Thailand through their website. All communication was efficient and clear. It was a bit of pain to go and 'check in' the day before our trip but really is a reflection of how they provide good quality, well fitting... More

Well, color me impressed! I've been snorkeling all over the world—in the Cook Islands, Hawaii, Colombia, the Philippines, the Caribbean, and beyond—and I have *never* encountered a company as professional and service-oriented as Dive & Relax. I knew we were in good hands from my first email exchange with the owner, Cameron. While other companies sent short, curt replies when... More

While waiting for our Diving-Safari-Trip my husband and I booked 2 days dive trips with Dive and Relax Diving centre at Lanta Castaway ressort. We were really fascinated and astonished how well those trips were organized: It started with the briefing early in the morning before going on board of the speedboat. One guide for only 2-3 persons, that surpassed... More

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!
