“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Went to get my Open Water Diver Course there, and everything went smoothly without a hitch. My two instructors, Claire and Wilko, were extremely passionate about diving, and made sure I was able to enjoy myself as much as i could during the entire course. Definitely coming back again in the future.

“Professional, Friendly & Good to learn from”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

These guys are really good. The first day, we went in to ensure that they were able to fit the right sizes on us. Bjorn was very professional and left nothing to chance. We were a group of five people and we had different requirements. All of us were first time divers and we did not have any great swimming proficiency. We were also very nervous about this expedition. Three of us had to get checked by a local doctor who Bjorn recommended as we had prior breathing difficulties.

On board, we were made to feel totally secure as the safety precautions were top notch. The initial training we received was very good and the divers helped us on all our questions. We did the DSD course with two dives. Finally, only a few of us actually dived, but that was because a couple did not want to go further. But, even for them the experience was great and I think it brought them closer to diving. For those of us who ended up diving, this was one of our cherished experiences.

We later even bought some snorkeling equipment from the shop that Bjorn recommended. I recommend this highly

“Safe and Reliable Dive Operator”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Ao Nang was a safe and reliable choice.

Normally for diving, me and my wife will move from operator to operator to get the best dives in our opinion due to factors such as departure time, food, speed, comfort of dive trip, boat, etc but we stick to this all the way to the end.

The dive boat has two toilets! One for shower and the other for toilet.

I will strongly recommend their services for learning scuba diving, or vivid scuba divers. The Germans do not take safety for granted.

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Worth booking your dive with The Dive. Only 1.5 years since they started, but the level of service is excellent. The staff took extra care to meet us one day in advance of the dive to fit in the right pair of BCD, Shoes, fins and picked us up from the hotel the next day sharp on time. The on-board staff was very friendly and they took extra special care of me when I felt uncomfortable. Owners are very friendly and passionate too and takes care of their customers very well. Highly Recommended.

“Prompt, efficient and definitely enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

Located slightly off the main strip of Ao nang, the dive centre was definitely worth the search for. We were greeted by warm and helpful staff upon chancing upon the small yet humble facade of the dive shop. Everything that preceded was water under the bridge, with efficient services, punctual pickups, good dive equipment and very helpful staff. Definitely recommended to anyone looking for dive courses or even just casual dive / snorkel trips.

Also special props to our dive instructor Remy for imparting an unforgettable dive experience.
