“Excellent diving course for kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Just wanting to say a big thankyou to Vincent at Kiwidivers for helping my children 10 &13years of age to achieve their scuba diving license. Vincent was exceptionally thourough,patient and highly knowledgable with my children whilst instructing them. Vincent took the time to make sure my children understood both the theory and the practical information needed to be able to pass their course.My kids were more than happy to stay with Vincent,(parents advised not to stay, too much of a distraction) in the office for the theory, then we joined the kids at the instructor pool to observe. Both Vincent and Kevin were very accomodating, taking into account ages and attention spans. The sole focus was the children learning and putting into practice what was needed to be able to dive. Highly recommend!!

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

My partner and i had 3 dives with Kiwi Diver in October and they were awesome. Jenny was our instructor and was so helpful and really put us to ease as we haven’t had many dives. The whole crew is friendly and inviting and we had an absolute blast and will definitely dive with them next time we are in Phuket!!!

“The best way to learn!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Our friend paid for us to have the Discover Scuba Diving experience as a wedding gift. They were very accomodating to give us a time when we could fit the experience around our other activities, even postponing it for us to try and give us a chance to get in the sea (due to poor weather).
Our instructor, Vincent, was brilliant, he was very patient and calm and gave us plenty of time to master the basics, ensuring we were happy before moving onto new skills. My wife has never been a water baby and she really appreciated Vincent's time and patience. The weather was not good enough for us to dive in the sea, but we spent a whole day in the pool mastering our skills and enjoyed having a swim and a play together at the bottom of the pool, even standing on our heads!
We would recommend this to anyone who wants to learn to dive, particularly anyone who might be apprehensive as Vincent was so good.

“Amazing time with Kiwi Divers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

My wife and I spend 2 days diving with Kiwi Divers in Phuket and had an awesome time! Everything was top notch all the way. From the initial information emails to the booking to the actual diving, it was first class all the way! Our dive instructor was Spencer who was the best. He convinced us to get the Advanced Open Water certification while we there and showed us some amazing dives. He's very professional but also full of great stories, by far our best guide we've had diving. There are so many dive shops in Phuket, but if you want the best in terms of service, equipment and guides go with Kiwi Diver!!
