Completed my open water dive course with these guys and it was incredible. So far, learning to dive has been the best experience of my travels/life and I would highly recommend it to anyone, and to use this dive school in particular. My dive instructor jeaun has years of experience under his belt, and he definetly makes sure you have... More

I dont use to leave references as we are travelling long time and no time for that. This exception is because this company made the difference in our time in Ko Thao. My husband went diving and they offered to me doing snorkelling as a complimentary service. Markus the german instructor was all time checking our comfort and explaining everything... More

Truly loved Koh Tao and the best thing we did was dive with Golden Divers. We had 3 days of instruction and diving to get our Open Water PADI license. Remko was our instructor and he was immensely patient. The whole atmosphere of the Golden Divers team is convivial and inclusive and we made friends with other travellers from around... More

My husband and I had no plans to get Scuba Certified on our honeymoon, but then we saw that you could do a one-day "Discover Scuba Diving" course and our guesthouse recommended Golden Divers. We are so glad they did! We did the "discovery," and then we're offered the opportunity to continue on to get certified. Remco, our instructor, made... More

Stumbled on this place once I got to Koh Tao with two friends and we all did the open water certification course, and couldn't have been happier! Robert was an amazing instructor and the whole staff was great. I wouldn't have wanted to go anywhere else for scuba on the island. If you want to get scuba certified on Koh... More

As French speakers, we passed our PADI open water with Jeff (great french instructor) at Golden Divers (but the school also offers lessons in English, Dutch and German). Jeff and the rest of the team are very friendly and make you feel comfortable in every situation. As we were seasick, they even offered seasick pills to make us feel better.... More
