I came here to get my open water with a reference from a friend. I was not expecting such an amazing time! Everyone who works there was very welcoming and friendly. I was set up with an instructor named Thomas and right away I knew I was going to enjoy myself. He was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to.... More

I recently did my Open Water with Simple Life and it was one of the best experiences of my life! They have managed to create a family-like atmosphere where everybody gets to know everyone. Even though there is a wide range of ability levels, everyone can't wait to help you or even just to talk to you about your dives.... More

We visited Simple Life Divers end of April 2015 and it was nothing less then amazing. Aside from the beautifull dive sites that Koh Tao has to offer, we had the pleasure of being tought by a team of instructors who were both relaxed and proffessional. All the skills sets that needed to be done in order to qualify for... More

Finished the first open water license with the instructor Nik today and it's been so good. It's been great three days, not only because of the diving, but because of everything. We slept at the Simple Life resort and had a very good room for 600 baht per night, they have their own bar/restaurant with very good food as well,... More

I went to Simple Life intending to complete my Open Water certification, but had such a great experience, I stayed on for the Advanced course as well. Baden is a top-notch instructor and our whole group had an amazing time learning to dive. All the staff are awesome and the vibe is super friendly and laid back. I definitely intend... More

Simple Life Divers is a very chill and professional place to go to if you love diving (if you don't it means you haven't dived there before) and relax/hang out afterwards with a group of same spirited fun loving divers. My first underwater breaths were with the more than lovely Hannah (one of simple life's many "dive babes"), an unforgettable... More

Me and my girlfriend Louise had the best time ever at Simple Life. We had booked in advanced, and arrived one day before. We got picked up at the marina, and we could start the Open Water course in the evening. The next day, Louise felt bad so we didn't do anything. Not a problem at Simple Life, as they... More

We did the 1 day Discover Scuba Diving course. It was a last minute decision. We only arrived on Ko Tao the morning of the dive. The dive was due to start at 10 and the ferry arrived at 9.50. Our instructor, Dena, met us at the pier and the dive school's pick up collected us. We left our bags... More

We didn't see much on the dive itself - (beginners dive) Denis was great from start to finish, he made the day very enjoyable with the over dive masters. I asked a British girl to record my dive on a GoPro because you're not allowed to hold it yourself, and she forgot to record.
