Over the 4 day course we learnt so much and we had the best instructor we could have wished for, David.

One month ago I got my AOW license there. These were the 2 most fantastic days I spent in Ko Tao! To choose this dive center was a really good decision... Small groups (I was the only one in mine) and all the staff was so friendly and helpful. But the best was my dive instructor: Tony (Anthony B.) not... More

Really worth it! Great diving school! We had a french course with an awesome instructor (Margaux). We saw a green turtle (what they didnt see for 2 months). Unfortunately no whaleshark (those are pretty rare to see). The free private room in the resort (next to the diving school and near all the restaurants, bars, beach...) was really nice too... More

Out of the 52 dive schools in Koh Tao I choose Seashell diving school ,It is by far the best experience you'll get with fantastic staff, a 'part of the family' feel on site and it's a small company with excellent morals and values - for the environment, it's staff and customers. I completed the Padi Open Water and it... More

I found this resort by chance, wandering around my first night in koh tao. I wanted to get my OW and find a place that could also offer me a private room since i was traveling with my girlfriend (most of the divers center i found could only offer me a dorm with the price) but I`m not gonna talk...

My partner did his advanced and I did my Open water at Seashell and it was a great experience. The instructors were all very friendly and fun, and the dives amazing. The price is similar to other dive resorts on the island but we chose Seashell because of the small groups (max 4 in each course), the dive sites they... More

Let me start with the positives... I'm a CMAS diver with 10+ years experience. I wanted to do a fun dive and chose Seashells because I was advised i'd be diving with another CMAS diver - great! The diving was excellent, it must be said. We were the first boats to the dive sites so had the place to ourselves.... More

We took an open water course at seashell with a 5 night stay at the resort that was included in the package, that contained the open water padi certificate along with 4 dives, swimming pool dive instructions and theory. Very friendly staff and good instructors for getting your open water!Highly recomendable!
