Haad Yao Divers is the perfect place to get your PADI "Open Water Diver" certification (or take other courses). The price is fair, there is enough equipment (in all sizes, like 3XL wetsuits), the dive boat is the best on Koh Phangan (even the food on the boat was delicious) and the instructors are not only good teachers but a...

Haad Yao is a great place to get your PADI cert. It has the best attention you could get as well as the best and most friendly instructors. If you want to dive, it has to be done here. Totally recommended.

Today we had an amazing day with Haad Yao divers! We went by boat to a rock-cliff nearby. After an early pick up at our resort, and breakfast on the boat we took off for the first dive. I already have my PADI, but it was a whole new experience for me to dive here in the beautiful area of... More

Excellent PADI course. Our instructor Richard was amazing and very patient with our total lack of experience, he taught me and my 24yr old son everything from scratch. We couldn't be happier. Great price, very safety conscious, all staff are very professional and friendly. Boat crew are great and captain's wife makes a very nice curry for lunch. Picked up/dropped... More

I had never went diving before going with Haad Yaao divers. Lots of snorkeling, never had dove. I signed up last minute for their 4 day open-water beginner course. My experience was wonderful. My instructor, Luca, was professional and thorough. He liked to have fun but knew when we needed to be taking our new information seriously (which was a... More

During our visit to Koh Phangan we wanted to get our OWD and AOWD licences in a very short amount of time. These guys warned is that it's gonna be tight, but if we wanted to try it, they'll do their best. And it came out as the best diving experience one can have. Starting with the instructors (special thanks... More

Highly professional and fun staff. We had an amazing experience. They have a wide range of services for any level of experience. Because our time was limited to finish our Open Water Diver / Advanced Open Water Diver they did all their best to make it happen. They also offered to take us to the pier to catch the last... More

Sail Rock is an amazing place to dive for my first time, 31C water, thanks very much! This company is beyond exceptional - I have quite bad eyesight and need glasses, and they had prescription googles ready and waiting for me. They have a couple of offices on Pangan so its easy to speak face to face for questions or... More

I had a great experience with these guys. I'm not a diver, i wanted to hire some snorkel kit to go and discover the shallow coral beds in the local Haad Yao bay. The team I met at the center were really helpful and gave me advice on the best spots in the area. The snorkel gear I hired was... More
