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. They swarmed for Alvaro Diving, which was the reason why we showed up a few minutes later. At the end we can say, it was one of our best experiences in our holiday. The... More

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 !

Alvaro Diving was absolutely incredible! They made our diving experience so perfect and fun. They even dealt with my sea sickness like champs, making sure that I didn't feel embarrassed and giving me water to help hydrate me. They also provided fresh pineapple, watermelon, tea, and some biscuits for everyone. Though I did not eat them my husband did and... More

We are so happy that you had an amazing time with us, despite of the sea sickness. For more sensitive stomachs, small breakfast help a lot indeed, however, we know that most of us are not used to Boats, so sea sick pills are at all times available! We do hope you guys come back soon for another dives. Thank... More
