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).

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!!!!!!

There are many diver shops in the port area and we chat with the French instructors and we tried a day of fun dives and my wife ended up with an advanced Padi certification and i was fun diving for 4 days because the diving team (Jeff, Clement, Jake and Baptiste) was very professional and took care of everything so...

We just finished our PADI Open Water at Golden Divers. What an experience! Diving is such a thrill and you will definitely enjoy it. Just keep in mind that diving is not only fun and amazing, wanting your open water will cost you also a lot of energy, patience and practicing within those 3 days! Golden Divers is a small... More

We had originally planned to complete our open water course on Koh Toa but due to an ear infection only had one day of diving at the end of our holiday. Spent a few days walking around and talking to different dive schools and got a good vibe from golden divers, they aren't the most expensive or the cheapest, but... More

I was recommended these guys by a friend & boy I'm happy I listened! I completed my PADI Open Water & Advance open water course and I loved them!! The whole team is brilliant, especially my teacher Jeff. They teach in small groups which is far better in my opinion and they make the atmosphere before during and even after... More

Recently did my open water and advanced with golden and could not be happier. Small groups and extra special attention to make your first dive experience easy and safe. Jeff, Robert and Julian were great instructors and so much fun to dive with and be around. Always up for a post dive beer (or whiskey) and lots of laughs. Would... More

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...
