Ask for Lance! Our dive master was fantastic. We did a dive around Sail Rock. He was great at guiding around the site, but making sure you could go at your own pace to explore areas around the rock. The entire operation was very well-run. The breakfast and lunch were great, everything was set up for us, and we were... More

We were a last minute booking for snorkelling to Angthong national marine park but they still found us space on a busy dive boat. Care was taken to ensure my 7&9 year olds were properly kitted out, safe and comfortable in the water. The water was a bit cloudy but to be expected given the time of year. The guys... More

Haad Yao is an extremely well managed diving school. We did a fantastic daytrip to Sail Rock. Organization: Timely pick-up service. Breakfast, lunch, snacks and soft drinks were provided on board (included in price), the food was good. The crew prepared the equipment for every diver on board so that it was no stress at all to put the stuff... More

Customer oriented, easy going and experienced staff. Easy and fast reservation process (even for a last minute booking). Boat was excellent: large with shadow and sun deck, helpful staff. Food on boat: freshly prepared thai lunch was great. Water and cold soft drinks were available. Instructor: adapted very well to our needs. Took lots of time to brief and debrief.... More

Great friendly and professional staff. Had a great dive again with this team. They make you blend in into a international group of divers of different levels. Was a marvelous day at Sail Rock

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
