If you want to learn to dive with a group of amazingly professional group of divers, I suggest you pick Alvaro Diving. Located at the southern part of the island, it is a great place to get out of the hustle and bustle of Sairee Beach to focus on your diving. Alvaro is very unique with their choice of dive... More

Based on the reviews on tripadvisor we decided to do some fundives at Alvaro Diving. This review is therefore not for their accommodation, but for the diving part only. We should, however, have stayed at their bungalows, as Namhassin house (where we stayed on Koh Tao) was one of our worst experiences ever while travelling.... Back to the diving. We... More

Having just arrived on Ko Tao, we were looking for a dive centre to have some fun dives with. I read about Alvaro and they gave us a great feeling right from the start. It had been 11 months since our last dive and Steve immediately made us feel very comfortable diving with Alvaro. After a quick refresher at the... More

Forget busy Sairee with the hundreds of cramped together dive schools, head straight for Alvaro on Chalok Baan where the vibe is chilled and the team are fun and friendly. Set on its own little beach on the western side of the bay, Alvaro has a fab big old pirate ship to dive from, multi lingual staff, nice relaxed area... More

I was at Koh Tao for diving and there are really a lot of diving centers. We did some pre-investigation before we went to Koh Tao and one of the diving centers we liked was Alvaro Diving. The diving center is a bit difficult to find, but when we arrived, it felt good immediately. The guys there were really nice... More
