My friend and I went to Koh Tao and picked Alvaro Diving since the pre-arrival service and the information provided was very good. We live and work in Thailand for 12 years already so we know what to expect when travelling in South East Asia. We both have approx 200 dives each so we decided to do the rescue diver... More

Travel without plan is the best thing to do: never expect to leave Ko Tao after 10 days as an Open Water Diver :-) From the first moment I was in the dive school I get a good feeling. Went there just to explore if I wanted to dive. Saying yes (together with a friend) was the best decision of... More

We chose Alvaro because of the recommendation of a friend. We booked in advance and when we arrived they welcomed us with open arms and explained all steps. We had a lot of fun with our diving instructor and loved getting to know so many people. It was a really familiar atmosphere. The only downside was that they closed the... More

Got my Open Water Diver certificate a week ago and I should say the diving and Koh Tao experience was the best part of my holidays in Thailand. The team is super friendly and helpful, starting with managers Rita and Joao, who were very informative and helpful by communicating on email and on site, while the great diving instructors (Steve...

Steve took the time to explain everything in detail and made us feel welcome immediately and in good hands. the day after I started simultaneously with the Open Water. the scuba instructor is very experienced and good equipment was offered. The great thing was that the groups are small, so up to 4 people.... More

Really an excellent place to learn diving or to explore the best dives sites of Koh Tao. Lovely, nice and professional instructors, dive guides and management. Everybody is welcome and from the first second you feel like being part of the "Alvaro family". Placed at a great and beautiful location, direct at the beach in Chalok. Diving equipment is good...

From the minute I arrived at their secluded beach spot, I was welcomed warmly and enthusiastically. The team were a lot of fun and clearly loved their lives, the ocean and diving and were keen to share the experience. My instructor, Marion, was excellent. She was competent and calm throughout training and dives, and was clearly focused on me having... More

It was great and I had a lot of fun diving with the instructors, the memories of their fancy boat make me still happy when I watch the videos I made. It's also a quite relaxed place to stay if you wanted to get away from the hustle in Bangkok or somewhere else like I did. The reason why I... More
