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

I did my open water and two additional skills (deep and wreck diver) at seashell and just loved it! It was one of the best and most intense experiences I had in my live so far! The atmosphere is great and the dive school seems like a happy family welcoming every new diver as one of there own. Our dive... More

Myself and a friend recently completed our open water course with sea shell divers. It was a brilliant experience and one that I'll never forget (partly due to the awesome DVD of our experience which I'd fully recommend spending the extra on) When we first arrived we were overwhelmed with dive companies wanting our custom but we were put off...

Small center, small school, small groups and the team tries to avoid the other centers by going at different type on the diving spots. Great dives, good material and organisation. I dived with another center on the island cause I wanted to change the schedule and I regretted it. That's why I directly came back to here.

I had a great time doing a scuba refresher, followed by a fun dive. I got one-on-one instruction from Thomas, who is a really good instructor. Very easy going, but knowledgeable. I had to take a break in the middle of skills (returning to the surface) and he was so understanding, which helped me relax and get back to it.... More

Me and my boyfriend did our Open water, and were really lucky that we got David to be our instructor. The Padi course can be quite tedious as there are a lot of skills and academics that you have to learn. David made it fun, was helpful and patient with all of our group. Especially as one member was nervous... More

Friendly staff, good location, good equipment and good vib in general. Just a pitty that the dives in Koh Tao are so bad (poor visibility, a lot of people on site and no real marine life). I mention too, not a very good boat, the diving area is not very well structured and the toilets are super smelly. Seashell is... More

Thanks for your review. We are happy to report that the monsoon season has passed and pleasant clear waters we are usually accustomed to have returned. During low season, Seashell takes the opportunity to send our boat to the mainland for regular maintenance every year. During these months we rent boat space with other dive companies. It could be that... More
