Passionate and competent instructors! You learn all about diving in small groups with attention for each individual! I did my advanced open water. We had 1 instructor and there were 2 other people with me in the group (so only 3 of us). They also recommended to take a refreshment of my diving skills in the pool (proove of responsibility...

If you're looking to get your open water diving certification I would highly recommend Sunshine Dive Resort. The staff at the resort are all very friendly and accommodating. The class sizes are usually quite small. When I went I was the only student, so it was like having private lessons. My instructor (Anna) was fantastic. Not only was she very... More

It was 400 baht only on a Monday. It was worth for the location mainly. No Wifi tho :( Room was airy and clean. Toilet was just alright. Staffs were ok. Best is the chairs looking out to the sea! Wish toilet was flushing one instead of having to pour water manually

I recently complete my advanced open water course with Sunshine Divers. My experience was very positive to say the least. From the time you arrive at the dive shop your greeted by a group of young welcoming and experienced divers. If your after a personal experience and not just another dive factory, then this is the crew your looking for.... More

Upon arriving, we were picked up at the pier and transported to the gorgeous beach front diving shop. The classrooms sit on the beach with one of the best views of the island. I have found myself drawn to sunshine during the daytimes even when I am not studying or diving, everyone is so approachable and friendly that the atmosphere... More

We stay at sunshine 2 and we dive with the dive club on the beach. A++ Friendly staff low budget bungallows 400b for a night and free during class. Before diving we check with each other club and for us its was perfect. They combine 1 Open and 1 Advance class so we could dive together 3 times.
