My partner and I did the DSD dive yesterday and it was amazing. We felt completely comfortable the entire time and came away with an amazing experience. It has definitely encouraged us to complete our PADI next time we dive. Cannot recommend this crew enough :)

It was an extremely professionally run experience with a real focus on safety and giving us a great experience. One of... More

We did 2 dives the first day with Bessa and a night dive the next day with Johno and both were friendly, professional and relaxed to dive with. We have dived a few times before but it had been awhile so they were very helpful in refreshing our knowledge without making us feel like idiots for not knowing. All dives... More

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.
