I did scuba diving with this. Frankly I do not know how to do the PADI to give 5 stars to their centers but that in my opinion, and by a star and maybe less. They put me in a group with a sub that was to take the open water (the theory that morning). Nobody told us "get ready... More

I am normally not one to complain about the small things, but when it comes to the safety of an individual I take it seriously! Our overall experience with Hippo Divers was good, thanks mostly to the wonderful staff and there effort to make things go right. This complaint is directed to the owners/management of this outfit. When you advertise... More

My friend is terrified of water and wanted to push herself to go scuba diving and it was because of the patience, kindness and helpful staff that we ended up having an extremely positive experience. We dove with a South African guy named Kyle (who I highly recommend, if he's still there). He really made it an epic experience. The... More

3stars because staff was very nice. But boat haf only 2 lifejackets, unedible food, old equipment so couldnt fully enjoyed diving experience as it failed. 700 baht for snorkelling a bit expensive since gear was old and places visited werent mindblowing.

I did 2 fun dives at Hippo and I loved it. Everyone is really nice and helpful over there. And they promised us turtles and sharks and we saw them!

Jess, Ken and Galli from the Hippo Divers provided me with a memorable experience. I had my first introductory dive and the team couldn't have made it anymore perfect. Can't wait to return to Phi Phi and go diving again with the team.

Even after 7 months, I'm still thinking about my memorable time on Koh Phi Phi! Thank you Hippo for making it happen -- I booked a short trip out to Koh Phi Phi and my friend insisted that we dive (even though she was terrified of fish) as it is "THE THING" you MUST try when on you're on Koh...
