I did my PADI open water course through Pirate Divers and it was a really positive experience. Our original plan had been to go to Koh Tao which had been recommended for diving. However after realising that huge numbers of people had the same idea, we decided to stay on Koh Phangan instead. The best thing about Pirate Divers is... More

As newbies to diving we got a short, but sufficient explanation of the equipment and how to behavior under water. Diving was fun and we got an pretty good insight. The boat trip to sail rock was nice as well. We enjoied the laid back athmosphere...

We did our advanced course with Pirate Divers and it was a good experience with a really enthusiastic and knowledgeable instructor. Unfortunately they tried to charge us extra halfway through the course for doing the photography dive even though when we booked they said there would be no charge, but then one of the other instructors gave us his camera...

They were really helpful staff, immediately felt that i had come the right place! Since I was the last dive, there have been problems with the ears, so I wanted professional help in my own language. The prices were reasonable too. The head instructioner (Moikku) was visiting in Bangkok, so the owner Nick called him immediately and I explained my... More

The staff is really great! No big groups and the instructors give personal teaching to dive in smaller groups. Pirate divers takes you to the best diving spots in Thailand. Sail rock, marine park and for advance divers to the sunken ship and caves at sail rock. Ask for the Finnish dude Moikku for the best diving trip you will... More

I did the open water in early january. It was my first experience with diving. The instructors did a decent job in the theory part and I felt that they cared about safety and wanted me to understand the equipment etc. Doing the skills with a british instructor was also ok except he seemed a little bit bored, not really...

Went looking for dive operation when we first got to Koh Phangan, and went no further when we saw this place. They have first class, well maintained equipment, a superb, helpful, and knowledgeable staff, and great knowledge of diving around the island. The best part is the owner Nick. He is young but very gracious and knowledgeable. Not only that... More

I did my PADI Advanced Diver Course with Pirate Divers. They were very accomodating in setting me up with short notice. Their equipment was nice and their boat was well equiped for diving. The best part was the location! They took me to Sail Rock, which is one of the best sites I've been to. WHALE SHARKS!!! Shout out to... More

Just very nice people, relaxed and friendly, I can really recommend them. Its a smaller divers center but the people working there understand their business. If you look for relaxed and uncomplicate people, just try Pirate Divers. Maybe they are not as big as other diving centers but they are much more friendly and helpful. When we went to Sail... More
