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).

Golden Divers is a fantastic school with excellent members of staff. My instructor Jeff is extremely experienced and is brilliant to learn how to dive with. I loved golden divers so much I stayed to do my advanced! Golden divers offer low, affordable prices and staff members that are fun, supportive and professional. A brilliant scuba school!

Jeff, Cyril and Brandon were super kind with my 3 kids as it was their first dives. They were enthusiastic and Jeff made it a very funny moment. Cyril shared lot of information on the wild life we met and the captain of the boat took care of the youngest (7) who could not dive with us. The boss was... More

I went to the Golden Divers because it was recommended by my Hostel on Koh Tao. I found a nice dive center with lovely and competent people. Groups are small, which means your diveinstructor has a lot of time to practise with you. Jeff was just very funny but serious and competent when it went to work, which was perfect.... More

My boyriend and I had a scuba diving introduction day. We are from the NL and were very lucky with our instructor Robert, who is originally Dutch as well. The experience was absolutely great!! I'd recommend it to all of my friends.

I strongly recommend this diving centre, not only because of the incredibly courtesy of all the staff, but even because of the hight level of preparation and experience. Furthermore, prices are definitely much more affordable compared to the many other diving centre I went to. To sum up, the best place for beginners or experienced divers. ENJOY KOH TAO!!!!!!
