“Excelent experience!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2015

We just finished our Open Water diving course with them and we are very happy! Excelent team, very professionals and good humour too. Our instructor, Gerald, put a lot of effort and dedication. Good equipment, good dives. 100% recomendable!

“The Best Dive School in Phuket.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2015

We were attracted to Dive Asia on a personal recommendation some four years ago and we made the right choice. They have the reputation for being the best in Phuket - and for good reason. Three of our family have done all their training with them - one to instructor level and we nearly always use them for day trips for our frequent visits to Phuket. Their rental equipment is of a very high standard, the instruction excellent, the dive leaders are very experienced and the organisation and safety what you would expect from a German run operation - extremely efficient! Their dive boat isn't the most comfortable, but it's very well maintained and the on board cooked food is extremely good - better than most of the local restaurants. My wife, who does not dive is always happy to spend a day on the boat with us.

They're not the cheapest - but when you are getting instruction and renting equipment that your life depends on - cheap is not necessarily good!

“It's a beautiful day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2015

I recommend go diving with Dive Asia, not only for divers, for non-divers is an amazing trip.
My wife (non-diver) and I spent a couple of day on Phi Phi island and Raja Noi & Raja Yai. From the hotel reception, transport to dive center and pier, equipment selection and diving/snorkeling/ swimming, all Dive Asia staff was kindly,dedicated and very professional, taking special care to ensure that everything was fine, supporting my wife on her first swimming on Raja Noi.
On the boot, food and beverage was very good and you can drink a beer cheaper than any bar on Phuket.
Really, they did a couple of "Beautiful days" in Thailand

“You can see the difference”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2014

I've just completed three weeks worth of day trips on M/V Dive Asia II and was therefore witness to the operation over more time than most. I was also able to see the output from Dive Asia's courses in action and to compare it with others.

As to the day trip operation, the guides and instructors are of the highest standard and keen to deliver the best experience they can. It's a well oiled machine that manages to pull off the unique trick of being very human and personal whilst delivering a simple packaged product - guided dives on some great dive sites.

Dive Asia's courses turn out not just certified divers but noticeably better divers than some other schools. I was able, even with my untrained eye, to pick out divers who had come through the Dive Asia courses simply by their performance in the water.

I have no hesitation in recommending Dive Asia both as a super day trip operator but also as a great place to start your underwater experience by taking an Open Water Diver course

“PADI - very well organised, friendly team”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2014

I was recommended Dive Asia and would definitely pass on the recommendation to others. Our diving instructor (Gerald) was brilliant and genuinely interested in making sure we got the best out of the experience. Very well organised, friendly team.
