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 did two fun dives to Sail Rock. We booked with Tim who told a lot about the divesites, we would visit and gave a discount if we booked together with another couple from our hotel. 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...

On May 18 I went on a dive trip to Sail Rock with Haad Yao divers. Since it was low season, there was some uncertainty whether the trip would actually take place. In the end, we shared the boat with several other dive companies, but from Haad Yao we were only 2 divers with 1 instructor (Davy) and 1 dive... More

They were great. Diving was very enjoyable with them. The boat was in a good state. They provide breakfast and lunch - both tasty - and drinks. We did a refresher course and a few fun dives. I can recommend going to the Sail Rock.

I was in a group with only one other guy and my instructor Maya. Great instructor and paid attention on everything. There were a... More

We signed up for the 4-day open water course at Haad Yao Divers and didn't regret it for a second. The instructor was very experienced, friendly and knew exactly how to teach techniques to newbies. For us is was pleasant to be able to follow the course in Dutch by a Belgian instructor. But there are also German, English and... More

This was many years ago (about <2005, but I want to share the love)...there was 3-4 people on the course, so not many. The diving and learning experience was outstanding. The instructor then was a welsh man. I forget his name. There was a dive master there too, I remember he had a tattoo of his spine, on his spine.... More

Thanks so much for your review. It's a great summary of the development on the island and it brings tears in my eyes. Your Instructor then was Raymond Hopkins. A really passionate diver. I am happy you enjoyed your diving again years later and shows us that our dive team is still enthusiastic about diving and takes care about you.... More
