Our dive master, Dave, was basically the coolest guy ever and we are all very sorry we never got those... More

We looked at doing our PADI open water at a few places on Koh Tao but decided that Impian's small size and high rating were what we were after. The course is three days, morning lessons, afternoon diving on the first two days and the last day two good dives. We both felt this was a good set up as... More

I was very lucky however and had all my lessons 1 on 1. The second reason was the language. There is the possibility to do... More

As an old PADI instructor I could see the value of small groups and the personal touch. This dive school is just GREAT. The people around Impian make it feel like you are a real VIP. Friendly, personal and a great sense of high standard. I can recommend them!

We completed the PADI Open Water course at Impian Divers in June 2014. We would highly recommended this dive school for diving. Pros: - Small groups (it was only the two of us with the instructor) - Great instructor (Dave Mason was experienced, competent diver and cared about the students as well as the reef) - great and fun staff...
