The staff was awesome, the equipment top notch. Only if you're on Koh Tao primarily for partying, you should be aware that it's a 5-10 minute taxi ride away from Sairee beach. Other than that, no downsides. Also, there are great bars along the beach which are packed even off season. 10/10 would dive again!

We were looking for a diving trip on Koh Tao and met some other tourists in our hotel which had a full snorkeling equipment with them.

I took the first level freedive and it was amazing. The couple that manage the dive center Rita and Joeo are fantastic people and very professional combined with excellent attitude creating "tailor made" experience for each and everyone. So take a long breath and enjoy...

I can't say enough about Alvaro. I went in for 1 quick discovery dive, I was disappointed because I didn't have enough time on the island to get my Open Water certification. The staff welcomed me and went out of their way and worked one on one with me to rush me through the program and get me certified! My... More

We had the best time in Koh Tao at Alvaro Diving. It was our first time diving, but we decided to stay and we pass Open water and Advanced. There is a great and nice team. We definitely will come back. Thank you Alvaro !
