My boyfriend and I spend three weeks on Ko Pangan and we did 11 dives (including our Advanced course) with Haad Yao Divers. We truly enjoyed the enthusiasm of the staff. The safety standards are high and we were impressed with their thorough way of working. Also we really liked the laid back vibe at the shop. After staying on... More

Great staff, great boat, great sites, pure fun without any preparation of the equipment (done by them). I would suggest to avoid all busy and impersonal diving centres in Koh Tao (I tried two) and choose Haad Yao Divers (and go to Sail Rock!)

Great experience! Good clean boat with sundeck, good food and good service! Did two days of diving with them and had a great dive master with just the two of us. All languages were spoken, dutch, french, russian, german, english, etc. Focus on safety, a boat on which you could move around easily and the small groups made it great... More

I had the opportunity of doing my scuba instructor course, PADI, with Neil Richards of Scuba Futures in association with Haad Yao divers. A great dive shop with awesome crew, the dive boat is comfortable and safe with a great breakfast and lunch served. Neil was the best Course Director ever. Highly recommend doing your instructor course here or at... More

I've done my divemaster training with them and I thing I was very lucky. Their shop is in a quite location, but not too remote. There is plenty of cheap and decent bungalows nearby, and a beach rich of corals and fish. The price for dive trips is standard on all the island, but I got a good deal with... More

We dived with Hadrien who was really friendly and professional. He took great interest in telling us about the dive and the different kind... More

Our group of four girls chanced upon Haad Yao divers while looking for a dive school at Koh Phangan, and we're so glad we did! 3 out of the 4 of us have gone diving as beginners before, but nothing like this; the pristine waters, plethora of aquatic life and excellent dive professionals (We had Course Director Neil and Dive...
