Went their with four friends (3 of us are advanced divers, 1 just received her open water) as they were the only outfit going to "Chumpon" the next day. While we were sitting and filling out paperwork the staff were sitting in the adjacent room discussing how terrible the diving is, how drunk the are, were going to get, and... More

We decided to take our Open Water course in Koh Tao and ended up doing it at Seashell Divers randomly as we stopped by and got a good feeling chatting with the manager. We were assigned an instructor named Jo. The whole course took 4 days (we had no previous experience from diving) and we ended up beeing very satisfied... More

I did two fun dives with Seashell divers and my instructor, Malene, was amazing! So happy and goofy and she knows/likes what she is doing! Also the other staff were really friendly and nice and it was super easy and quick to book those dives. We went to Mango Bay and White Rock and saw a hawksbill turtle yyeeei! :)... More

I did 4 dives with Seashell and thoroughly enjoyed them. Paul was very helpful in booking me on to the dives when my group arrived late afternoon and i wanted to be out the next day. Another member of my group wanted to dive and a refresher was arranged for him at very short notice so he was able to... More

We did our open water PADI diving here, and loved it! Koh Tao is obviously the dive centre of Thailand and many courses offer similar prices and deal, however seashell was extremely competitive price wise, as well as only having 4pax max. Accommodation was basic, fan room, but you spend most of the time on the course. Mike was our... More

I did my OWD at Seashell Divers in April! Lewis, my diving instructor was just perfect. Very professional, good at explaining things, patient and a great diving buddy!! Groups at Seashell Divers are already very small - only 4 people per course, but I had the luck to be a "just one woman course", because the other participants had to... More

Saw more people than fish at both dive sites I went to and got asked to come up after thirty minutes without explanation afterwards. Philippines, Koh Phi Phi, Koh Lanta, Bali, Gilli Islands and Perhinthian Islands all offer better diving- some of which are cheaper too The guy who we signed up with, Paul I think, had the enthusiasm of...

I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your dives. We like to go out to the best dive sites, but so does everybody else. We try to avoid the crowds by leaving earlier than most other dive centres in the morning, but if it was an afternoon dive that you did, there really isn't any way to avoid other divers.... More

We did our Open Water last year (2013) at Seashell with Anna BH, and it was a great experience. Thanks Anna! This year (2014) we completed our Advanced Open Water with Mike C, and once again a superb experience. Thanks Mike, we really enjoyed the course! So with two separate trips to Koh Tao, and both featuring Seashell Divers courses... More

Seashell Diving School is amazing. It's a small school that really takes care of the students, not like the other diving factories on the island. Small groups (max. 4 people) and the PADI Open Water takes 4 days, not 2,5 or 3 days like in other schools. My instructor, Lewis, was the best! Outstanding, really! He was patient, explained everything... More

Tried writing a negative review previously and had some problems. Firstly trip advisor made me certify my review. Then they removed my review until I proved it was about the correct place. This has never happened to me before, perhaps this is why this place has such high ratings or maybe it was just an odd coincidence.. I'll keep it... More

In your earlier review we pointed out many reasons as to why the diving that you wished to do was a clear breach of safety standards. We too were surprised to see that your initial review was removed. We commented in your previous review that "We truly hope that you reconsider your review given the potential safety implications that could... More
