Me and my girlfriend did an open water course. We were looking for somewhere with small groups and Phoenix was perfect. After doing the course all the other dive shops we walked past didn't look at all as inviting as Phoenix. We arrived on Koh Tao with nowhere booked and just walked along the road asking a few places.

The dive instructor who took me in the pool seemed almost bored with having to do this pool experience a third time that day. I was asking him about diving for people with... More

Phoenix was recommended to me by a friend and I was not disappointed. All staff were very friendly and had a professional approach. Nui, our instructor was always patient and understanding. His experience in diving and his passion was clearly visible (at one point during dives I got nervous and had a panic attack - just because it's me, he... More

Phoenix dive dorm is one of the cheapest places to learn to dive on koh tao but more importantly to me is that the dive masters/ instructors here have something really good going on..! They work like a dive family and although you are assigned a dive instructor in fact it feels like they are all your instructors. The open... More

My partner and I initially approached the office for information on try dives and the SSI/PADI courses. The guy on the counter (Luke) was very approachable and offered all the information needed. We booked a try dive for the following day due to time constraints on booking the full course.. In the morning we were met by our instructor Carlito,... More

My boyfriend and I recently got our open water diving certificate with Phoenix Divers and couldn't get over the value and quality of the course. 8500 Thai baht for 4 nights accommodation with breakfast and on top of that you get trained by super friendly, funny professionals. The course itself is a lot of safety,which the instructors go over thoroughly... More
