“Diving with Sea Bees - yet again, and agin.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Been diving with Sea Bees twice a year (10-15 dives per session) for several years, and whilst I’m familiar with most dive sites out of Chalong I continue to get the wonderful experience that Sea Bees organization offers. Having tried in the past other dive companies there seems nothing to compare with the overall experience the Guys at Chalong offer. Introducing a colleague this trip also provided a winning experience for him. I will continue to join Sea Bees and may take a change with Sea Bees with additional week at Khaolak.
Special mention for the dive boat crew, boat boys and catering staff. Wonderful and helpful.

“Open Water Dive Course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

I have just finished an Open Water dive course with Sea Bees Diving in Phuket.
I went to Sea Bees because some very demanding friends of mine spoke so highly about a holiday experience they had with Sea Bees some 3 years ago . My choice was completely vindicated . The company proved to be efficient in every detail and the quality of instruction excellent .Our instructor was bi-lingual ,relaxed and very experienced , in fact just what you want for an adventure of this kind. In addition “Blackey “ was a really cool guy.The equipment supplied was new , top of the range and all fitted perfectly. As a bonus , the sites we visited for our training were highly desirable dive locations introducing us to the delights of the underwater world and many of the creatures we have only seen in the aquarium .
I understand their dive boats run daily and you can hire equipment on a daily basis . We will be using them again !

“Great diving experience!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

My friend and I had an amazing two days of diving with Sea bees. They were very professional in dealing with my email queries before we arrived and we booked everything through them which was very convenient. That included the dives, hotel stay at palm garden resort and the airport transfers. The boat was superb, very comfortable, and the staff were great! We did two dives on Saturday and also Super Sunday which was 4 dives and a full day on the boat. We thoroughly enjoyed the diving, great visibility and diverse marine life. Oh I have to mention that the meals on the boat are delicious, we were well fed! On Super Sunday we dived with Ricardo Trabulo - great instructor/guide. He was absolutely amazing!
We would definitely dive with sea bees again! It was a great experience! Looking forward to returning to Phuket!!

“Sea Bees is a great outfit, for snorkelers and divers.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

We took the day trip for snorkeling. Sea Bees is a very impressive and professional outfit, with very friendly and helpful staff who give good attention to guest safety and comfort. The organization was good, the boat comfortable, equipment in good condition, the food bountiful and delicious.(The cook was even so kind as to accommodate my food allergy.) The snorkeling guests were treated with equal respect and attention as those who were doing scuba diving. The staff were very good with the children aboard, gave them extra attention and helped them be comfortable in the water. We had a lot of fun on the day trip, met some interesting people and enjoyed the snorkeling. The only down side to the whole day was that the reef at the island we went had been damaged (a big problem in some of the areas around there that are heavily visited) so it was not as impressive or colorful as we had hoped. Perhaps the other islands that Sea Bees visits have reefs in better condition. That was the only thing that wasn’t perfect that day. When I return I will use Sea Bees again and I would love to take an overnight trip with them.

Dear ArezzoNM,
Thank you for your kind review and we are happy that you enjoyed your snorkeling trip. You are right - no differences are made between snorkelers and divers. It is simply being able to appreciate and enjoy the sea and its treasures. Thank you also for noticing the other parts of our service that, together, make us stand out because the team works very hard to achieve this, The island you visited is recovering from the bleaching a couple of years ago and so does not look its best. Let us know in advance when you are next visiting and we'll have to see about that overnight trip! 
Team Sea Bees
P.S. Give our best to Albuquerque and Santa Fe -  you live in a stunning part of the world!

“Diving with Sea Bees”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We went as a family on a one day boat trip from Phuket. Our two daughters both dive and had a great trip seeing a Leopard shark and turtles together with lots of other things. An early start in the morning and a long day meant time for dives at three separate sites which was great for a variety of sights. Also good snorkeling for the non divers on the trip. We all enjoyed the usual antics and diving sense of humour from the guides. The boat was comfortable with plenty of great food, they produced a vegetarian selection especially for our one daughter. Definitely recommend them to anyone on holiday in Phuket.

Dear Keith549,

Thanks for your positive feedback. Being able to dive and snorkel together is a great family day out as it is not just about diving but being able to appreciate the sea in each person’s own way. We appreciate that you found all aspects of our service positive and hope to welcome you back soon.
