“Honeymoon highlight!! Thank you Jorma & Milla.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

We chose to do our OWD course with these guys after reading all the positive reviews and were not disappointed! (We also went back for more after)
From the start Jorma was more than happy to take us through the practical part of the course after we had done the e-learning theory which he made very straightforward, informally testing us as we went. He was always open to discussion and questions about diving which enhanced our education. He was professional with a laid back attitude which made us feel very comfortable and we fully trusted him from the start.
Jorma went over & above his duties with regards to transport for us and was always prompt. The speedboat we were on was excellent: the crew were great fun and the food was amazing and i would recommend this method of getting to dive sites, we always arrived long before the big slow-boats so got more of the water to ourselves. Kit was all in great condition we had no problems there.
In 3 days on the boat we got to dive Koh Tao (mango bay, Aow Leuk, lighthouse bay, Chumphon pinnacle) & sail rock at Koh Phangan. All were fantastic.
As an instructor he was very knowledgeable about all of the dive sites we went to and was able to take us to the hiding places for all the interesting wildlife. Although no whale sharks graced us with their presence, we were lucky to see a giant moray eel, Porcupine Puffer fish, the well camouflaged bearded Scorpion fish & even inadvertently found a Jenkins whip ray.
Jorma also turned out to be a great photographer and on arriving home we promptly got a copy of the high res digital underwater photos which are priceless for the memories.
Both Milla & Jorma were very friendly, talkative & approachable and still after how many dives under their belts are so enthusiastic & driven which is contagious.
We cannot recommend these guys highly enough!!!

Small bubbles, no troubles :-)
Your last L&LD customers (although you'll be well sought after freelancing in Koh Samui)

“Wonderful first time experience with scuba diving”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

We booked a discover diving trip with Jorma and it was a wonderful trip. Jorma took good care of us explaining to us about the details and precautions of scuba diving. Even though we had no previous experience at all, we felt very comfortable in the ocean thanks to our guide. And what can I say, we had a blast.

We went to Koh Tao and had 1 dive off of the beach and 1 dive off of the boat. We saw many beautiful marine life and corals (and a sea turtle!). Most importantly, I am no longer nervous about diving in the ocean. That was an experience of a life time and you should try it too!

Jorma took many underwater photos of us diving, and later on sent us the pictures! He was wonderful and helpful. He even told us about the Lamai walk street and some great local eatery nearby the dive store.

We decided on getting our PADI license after the trip because we had so much fun diving with Live & Let Dive. Solid 5 stars! :)

“Highlight of our holiday!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Had a fabulous day out with Jorma, a friendly and highly professional dive instructor who took great care of us. We found Live and Let Dive through Trip Advisor and because they have such great reviews, we had to try them too!
Our excusion included full equipment hire, (fast) boat out to Koh Tao, two dives, underwater photos, lunch, drinks all day as well as pick up and drop off from our villa. Simply awesome. You will not be disappointed.
