With roots going back to 1989, P.P. Aquanauts Scuba is one of the first purpose-built dive centers on Phi Phi. With a unique non-commercial but professional style, both fun and safety are maximized. All dives are planned and supervised to strict PADI standards, which are recognized worldwide. Personal attention and professional care are corner-stones of the Aquanauts family. Customized trips, night dives and drinks on the breezy porch are available every day of the year.

I was diving with Aquanauts for two days during a short stay in Phi Phi. Everyone at the school was concerned about safety, friendly, and made sure we had a good day and found cool things to observe at the dive sites. My divemaster was Kira at both times, and we first spoke to Serge who explained all about the... More

We spent two weeks on the island climbing and diving. We left our climbing gear at aquanauts and used it as our home base to get some wifi, refill our water bottles (they were cool with letting us fill our nalgenes for free, saving the island from more unnecessary plastic bottles on the island), have a beer, join in on...

We spent 4 days with Aquanauts completing our Padi Open Water certificate. The team were great and extremely methodical - we covered all aspects of the certificate including comprehensive theory and practises in confined water before heading out for our 4 open water dives. Liam and the entire team were amazing. They went above and beyond, helping us out with... More

Aquanauts became an instant hit with us, whilst we undertook our Padi Open Water. Having to do theory exercises made us anxious, but the team made the sessions both insightful & lots of fun - scoring 92% in the exam. The best part was travelling out to Aquanauts main dive sites with their highly experienced manager: Liam and the team.... More

Aquanauts crew were great, fun to hang out with and very welcoming. Had Mikey as my AOW instructor and he was very professional and easy going. Very glad to have dived with the aquanauts gang and couldn't have picked a better dive shop during my stay on Ko Phi Phi Don. -mattie/nick from Sydney

I went to Phi Phi determined to try diving as I never did this before. On the first day I went to 3 different diving shops and, as all had the same price for the Discover Scuba course, I decided to go with these guys based on the reviews from Trip Advisor. I don't regret this choice, especially since Liam,... More

I have never dived before and wanted to try it out in Phi Phi. It was a great experience, went out early in the morning and I was terrified when I first went into the water. But my diving instructor Mike was so nice and very patient with me! :-) I ended up seeing so many different fish, sharks, a... More

Arriving in Phi Phi in the morning, I thought I could dive right away the same day but it was already too late. However, one of the DM (Serge) was really great and gave me his tips to enjoy snorkelling in Phi Phi :) and invite me to join the team and other customers to hang out the same night.... More

After stopping at Phi Phi Diving, the #1 rated dive shop on TA and feeling like the girl giving us the info was rushed and just wanted to upsell us pushing us to get advanced certification when all we wanted was a fun dive, we gave the #2 rated shop, Aquanauts, a chance. Mike greeted us with a very friendly... More

The staff at this company are fantastic. They are friendly, fun, accommodating and all of them know what they are doing when it comes to scuba diving. They are one of the first dive groups on the island so they know their stuff. Three friends and I did two fun dives. We saw a ton of black tip reef sharks... More
