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 an awesome experience here, well worth the money for a trip to Ko Haa. We had a lovely conversation with a lady at the Sayang Resort who signed us up for a day-trip, after giving us plenty of advice and free trials in the snorkel kit. Then we were picked up and taken to the main centre, where... More

I booked to complete my Open Water PADI Course with Dive & Relax because of the great reviews on Trip Advisor; they weren't wrong. The groups are always kept small, in fact I was one-on-one with my instructor. My self study day allowed me to use a Dive & Relax tablet to review videos and work through the text book... More

I had 3 fun diving trips with Dive & Relax during my one-week vacation at Koh Lanta. Everything was great: people were friendly and the trips well organized. Each trip would begin with a very thorough explanation of the day's schedule, boat safety etc. and end with another session where we would go through the dives, what we saw and... More

Hands down the best dive school I've ever dived with! I cannot really emphasize the quality of this company enough, there is not even single detail I can think of which would need improvement. D&R dives with speedboats which is perfect to get to the sites early enough before mass madness starts. Boats are modern and comfortable, providing enough room... More

Other dive companies can take 2+ hours to reach the same dive sites that Dive & Relax will take you to in 30 minutes. That's practical. The crew is organized and efficient in providing drinks/meals and of course planning the dive. I became PADI Open Water certified and was glad to find the class was only me and my instructor!...

I'm not one of these people who normally leaves a review but diving with Dive & Relax is one of those experiences you have to put down in words. Simply said it's the best; the best company, the best dive guides (Kla was brilliant), the best organisation and the best boat staff. Small groups with no more than 4 to... More

I don’t usually write reviews, but as I was about to write an email to Dive & Relaxe to express our gratitude I decided I could just as well upload our experience to TripAdvisor. My husband and I had never tried scuba diving before and were looking to get certified in Koh Lanta. We took a three day course to... More

The #1 reason to dive with Dive and Relax is the small groups. They will group people according to certification level and experience, and have no problem sending a dive master or instructor with just one diver. Groups are no bigger than 4. Dive and Relax is very professional and friendly and Cameron responds to email enquiries very quickly. Book... More

I did a DSD with this guys and bookt the same day my OpenWater Course. I felt very secure with Dive & Relax. They have a Speedboat to get very fast to the dive site. Free Drinks, Fruits and lunch inclusive. I had Adam as a teacher and he was amazing! Sometimes I felt unsure (specialy with the Mask-Skills) but... More
