I just completed my Divemaster Program with Sunshine divers having been there to do OW and AOW in years previous. Natalie and the team at Sunshine make it an awesome experience, we were also lucky enough to have the chance to take part in the first Divemaster exchange program, where myself and one of the other Divemaster Trainee's travelled to...

Cool place to get your diving license, especially if you get to dive with Janice and Simon (don't know if they're still there, we went there almost a year ago). We really enjoyed it. You get to dive in small groups of people, which is always better. Relaxed atmosphere (having class and "studying" at the beach is priceless), cool bar.

I've been diving with Sunshine a few times now and this last time I brought some friends to do their OW, AOW and Rescue course with them. We were all very happy with this excellent dive shop. The staff are fantastic instructors, the boat and gear is in excellent condition. If you're diving at Koh Tao, dive with Sunshine Divers!!... More

We came here to do our Open Water Certificate and what a wonderful place! Situated at the end of a stunning yet quiet bay, Sunshine Divers promises a chilled out, friendly vibe, great food and exceptional diving instructors. An incredible experience; cannot recommend highly enough!!

I was in my Divemaster program in Toronto, when I started to wonder about places where I can go for Instructors Development Course. Chris Williams - my instructor of that time - said that I will never find a place better than Koh Tao and that I should finish IDC with Natalie Hunt (she was his Course Director some years... More

If you want to learn, this is really very good place to do it. And they do it easy, they make it easy. Diving should be always fun, they know how to make you comfortable. Sunshine has everything anyone could ask for — good diving, comfort, safety, fun, family. As soon as you get there you are gonna feel welcomed... More

PADI Open Water Advanced Course. Well-organised, friendly, easy-going, fun, reliable, value-for-money... the list goes on. I arrived for a week and could have stayed a month. Emphasis on small groups is not wrong, I had an instructor to myself and he was absolutely excellent. The most fun I have had on a long time. Great location on the island, dives... More
