Can't say enough about our dive trip with Darrius. He's so passionate about diving and you can really sense that from him, he's great fun too and really tries to make sure you have a great dive. He sat down with us afterward for a good half hour to go through what we saw etc. We had two really long... More

Why a group of Brits/Aussies etc are using the 'hassle' approach found in the worst of local markets as their sales technique I don't know. When I dive I want to spend the day with a great group of people, not with 'touts' which is the impression they give. I chose to dive with another centre who were interested in... More

Great diving experience on Koh Phi Phi. They do hit you up on the street with a bit of a hard sell approach, but staff and trip were otherwise great. Groups were small (just 4 divers in mine) and our dive master Rob was excellent. Walked through safety reminders quickly and effectively for our group of "experienced but hadn't been... More

I went diving for the first time in my life and it was really fun. I want to go again the now. The instructors are good and they really care about making sure you know what you're doing. They'll even hold your hand if they need to! Loved it!

Extremely annoying approach by the staff to get you to utilise this companies services. As a qualified diver with a great many years experience i went to Phi Phi for a relaxing holiday as well as some great diving, i didn't expect to be hijacked on the street by the staff of this organisation in an attempt to get me...

We searched the island for a place to learn to dive and then we came across island divers. They were very friendly, giving us advice and tips on where to go on the island. We got a good feel for the company after our Initial chat with Mike we decided to book a taster dive course. They were very professional.... More

Some friends of us took the diver license so I got to go on the boat and snorkle while they were diving. I was promised good snorkel conditions but I didnt see a singel fish. And everybody on the boat got sea sick! They told us that they had a big boat but that was so wrong. We had to... More

This was the most personal and attentive dive we did in all of SE asia. Henry was great, a fun amount of snarky, and very safe. We did a night dive and had to watch a 30 minute safety video beforehand. This was our last night on Koh Phi Phi and it was just us, Henry and a captain on... More

I have dove all over Thailand, Indonesia, Tanzania (40 logged dives) This is by far the worst dive centre we (husband and I) have come across. Uninterested, arrogant, rude, boring, moody staff. Including the manager who was probably the worst of the lot. Our dive leader was sick and apparently had sinus squeeze the whole time and was miserable and... More

Went out for my very first dive with island divers after caspar convinced me into it in one of their two shops. The marketing strategy might be a bit fast forward but at the end it's the same for so many shops on ko phi phi. The next day we've been just four people on board of the diving boat.all... More
