We came to simple life as part of our honeymoon, me having always wanted to go diving and my new husband, Tam having been convinced by me. Simple life were absolutely brilliant- incredibly professional, friendly, patient and excellent instructors. Tam wasn't 100% convinced initially however our instructors Jo and Ross were amazing. The student to instructor ratio was brilliant and... More

Since I was on a family holiday I only went for a 2-dive trip in the morning. The fun divers joined a boat with dive master candidates. The dive spots were not great, the second one at the wreck not worth the visit due to bad visibility. Dive time was limited to only 30 minutes. I brought my own (air... More

After an embarrassingly long break from diving, my husband and I took a scuba review with Simple Life. We had a lot to cover and the instruction was excellent. Instructor Joana Verey is a gifted communicator above and below the water, unfailingly calm and encouraging. The staff and DMT's are knowledgeable, and competent. Safety is clearly a top priority. The... More

I'm a regular visitor to Koh Tao and always do my diving with Simple Life. I did my first DSD with Adam back in February, and came back to do my Open Water with Jo in March - it was such a fun course and made me a confident diver and I have returned many times to go fun diving... More

Had an awesome time doing my PADI Refresh and Advanced. Our instructor Jo was brilliant and helped me get straight back into the water after 5 years not diving and due to the quality of the instruction I picked up the skills again very quickly. After the refresh Jo then took us for our Advance, which was taught in a... More

Stayed here in June - note this is not the upmarket resort in Sairee, but the backpacker style accommodation at the actual dive school near to Mae Haad (the pier). I was staying in a dorm that I preferred in Sairee (as it was 50 bht more for a/c) diving with another school, but came to stay here only because... More

great shop with tons of great guides, although thomas horan is clearly the best of them. the team is very professional and focused on keeping you safe and getting your certification, but they definitely keep a light atmosphere and make sure you're having fun as well. would recommend this place to anybody looking for some diving in KT.

I originally did not plan to dive/scuba while in Thailand but getting my PADI open water certification in four days at a fraction of the price in the U.S. at one of the best places to dive in the world was very appealing. Our instructors Jason and Sam were great at teaching us all of the skills we needed to... More
