Of course we came to Ko Tao to get our diving licensce. The first days we were strolling around, looking for a good german-speaking dive-school. We found this one immediately. It had signs in every language, so as well in German. There's one german dive teacher and he is super awesome. Everyone in this place was reaally helpful. We had... More

After looking at a couple of dive shops and reading reviews online, I settled for Phoenix because the value for money seemed very good. The staff and dive master trainees were all friendly and didn't hesitate to answer any questions I asked. My instructor was Chris, a refreshingly down to earth and very patient guy who made learning how to... More

Yes, this island is one of the best and cheapest places for diving and yes there are many other dive shops on Koh Tao. But the Phoenix team somehow always manage... More

I've had a blast doing my Open Water at Phoenix. Great, laid back staff and their boats are nice as well. Went there during the Songkran period and still managed to be done within less than 4 days! I can only recommend the school! Only downside was the accommodation (AC Resort) - their staff is just really ride and doesn't... More

My partner and I are experienced dive instructors and were having a hard time finding a company to do some fun dives with on Koh Tao. After some less then enthusiastic responses from other shops, Phoenix Divers were by far the best customer Service and first impression. Rory (Dive Master) was on the front desk and was knowledgable, fun and... More

I was in the first place "hired" on the port in Koh Phangan and didn't know what to expect. Well, what a surprise to end up with this incredible guy, Neil. Such a great professional, what a awesome instructor he is. He has this aura that makes you feel safe underwater. The rest of the staff was also very caring,... More

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.

I did the free try scuba in the pool with Phoenix Divers with the intent to go on the boat for Discover Scuba Dive the next day. 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.
