Our dive school wants to give you the customer the best dive experience we possibly can, so for people wishing to take a PADI course we make sure our groups are no bigger than 4 people this enables our experienced instructors to give you plenty of individual attention making you a better and safer diver...for certified people who just want to fun dive our dive leaders are very experienced with all the dive site's around this beautiful island and we have no limit on dive time our boat only goes out once a day for 2 dives so were not restricted by schedules...and our boat does not leave until 11pm this means no setting your alarm at 6.30 your are on holiday after all, also leaving at this time means we arrive at dive sites when other schools are leaving so we can spend more time looking at the fish and not other divers so come join our magical underwater world on the rock (Koh Tao).

After checking out several dive shops we found Golden Divers and met David. He is such a cool guy. Although very early in the morning he took his time to explain to us all the different price models and how the dives would work. We are CMAS * divers, so we just wanted to do some fun dives. At no... More

Golden divers is great! I did the open water course, and it was amazing! They speak French Dutch and English very well and they are really nice. Robert, our instructor, is very funny and patient. My boyfriend did a trydive, because of troubles with his ears. Robert took the time to figure out what the problem was. That's possible because... More

I just finished my advanced diver with them and it was amazing. Jeff and Robert were our two instructors and they did an amazing job. Even on extremely busy days they where always available for answering questions or telling a joke. On the other hand, we were on an extremely busy week due to Chinese new year and there were...

Golden Divers... what can I say... They are an amazing school! I briefly worked for them and I enjoyed every minute of it. I've been a diver for around 7 years now and I have never had any staff members of a dive school make me laugh as much as Geoff and Robert did whilst being incredibly passionate and knowledgeable...

I did my open water with Golden Divers and it was a great experience. David, my instructor, was very knowledgeable, helpful, patient and an all around nice fella. There was only 2 other's in my class which meant we had plenty of individual attention. There price was also really reasonable plus I got a discount as I stayed at Koh... More

I started my Advanced Open Water course with Golden Divers, carried on to finish the Rescue Diver course and am now staying on to do my DiveMaster Training. They've become my family away from home and I highly recommend them for any level of training. Safe, educational and a great atmosphere have helped to make my time spent in koh... More
