Planet scuba was absolutely great. I only had a short amount of time and was extremely rushed to get certified but they helped me smash through it in perfect timing and got me on my way. Not only that but the Dive masters were amazing and the service second to none. Everyone working there was so friendly an hilarious. Sabrina,... More

After diving at planet scuba I am hooked. They have such a passion for diving that it rubs off. Really relaxed and through. I came back to do my instructor course with Scott who was the right balance between mate and authority. Thanks also to all the instructors there who guided me and helped.

I got 8 fun dives with planet scuba and it has been a pleasure, the dive-masters are professional, friendly and always smiling! I recommend this dive center if you want to discover the magnificent Koh Tao in small groups of 4 divers maximum! I will come back there, for sure!

What can I say about Planet Scuba and their staff that hasn’t been said 100+ times already on trip advisor? It’s obvious that they are a great dive school, well equipped, experienced, knowledgeable, friendly and professional. Most people come for their first open water experience or perhaps their Advanced open water/ Advanced adventurer. That’s how I found out about Planet... More

Me and my mate Ryan had no experience at scuba diving and all we wanted to do was see some cool stuff like fish and coral so we undertook the open water dive with our pro instructor being Brummie Jason (who's jokes do progressively get better I may add) being very patient and very easy to learn off and made...

My partner and I booked through planet scuba not knowing what to expect. She was a poor swimmer and we were both worried about the whole process. Jason couldn't have been more helpful, understanding or patient with her and another guy in our group. The whole team, Scott, Ned, Theon and Steve among many others couldn't have made our stay...
