I can't remember why I booked here. Maybe from a friend who's been there to. Located at the water and next to the boat who hops you to the other Islands. Our room was very small. For us a shed. We like luxury. But for the price and get you're PADI it was a very good price. We asked directly... More

Professionally instructed by Heath Steward an Australian Expat. who clearly loves his job. Heath guides participants through a course of instruction which most holiday makers would otherwise not enjoy. He had a flair for making fun of an arduous task with clear and easy instructions. (You van choose your instructor, ask for Heath)

We did a PADI OWD course with Crystal. We had two kids (12+) learning with us. Our instructors, Mark and Ciaran, were amazing. They were informative, fun and very attentive. We had a great time and the price was very reasonable. Special mentions also to Heath and Darren.

Prices are very reasonable. Take it from me. I am a Thai citizen and i know a bargain when i see one. At crystal dive, you can get your open water license for 9,800 baht! with 4 guided dives. The instructors were extremely patient and professional. I did the course with my wife and our instructor was Heath Stewart. He... More

Crystal Dive is an expert place to learn how to dive. I did my open water and advanced open water certifications here with a friend of mine. It was a great experience. We upgraded to an AC bungalow. We also stayed in a fan room our last night for full price, a whopping 600 bhat. The bungalows are not amazing,... More

After a long day of travel we arrived to smiling faces and much help. My wife and I sat and filled out the paper work and headed to our bungalow w/ A/C. It was a very typical simple place and fyi the 'bum gun' is all that is supplied so if toilet paper is need just hop over to 7-11... More

I recently completed my advanced courses and a couple of specialty qualifications at Crystal and I can honestly rate the tuition as first class...having learnt to dive in the red sea and subsequently dived in a lot of places around the Mediterranean, if you want to really advance your skills or even dive for the first time, these guys have...

I recently did my advanced open water with crystal and my girlfriend did her open water. My dive instructor, Luke, was brilliant! Being a similar age to me, he became like a mate, while still being totally professional. There is a nice social atmosphere at crystal; staff and students will meet for a beer when the days diving is done.... More

Dive with Crystal and ask for heath as your instructor. You'll recognize him right away, as he kind of resembles "the rock". I did my AOW with him and had a really great time. If you're a first timer or an experienced diver, he's the kind of trainer you want to be with. He has tons of experience, is a... More

When we arrived in Koh Tao we had already booked (2 weeks before) a diving course (which included free accommodation), and when we were taken to said accommodation it was pretty horrnedous! We were in a concrete box, with no air-con, no painbt on the walls, no flooring.. just concrete. It was hotter inside the box than outside. We also... More
