      Outlandishly wicked open water diver course
      I landed on Koh Tao with thick grey clouds overhead and was debating an island snorkeling tour, when, inspired by one of my clients who said they loved diving here, I decided to ask around a couple of diving shops. Scubadoo was the third and best priced and had a shop full of welcoming people. I signed up after a bit of research and had a blast completing my open water diver qualification. I’ve learned loads in what feels like even less time than the 2.5 day course and have made at least one mate from it! I’d highly recommend Scubadoo - big shout to Lukey, Harry and Jorge.

      Dive with them u ll not regret 😉
      Was an amazing experience, I can't complain about anything, they have his own pier, own boat, the stuff is so friendly and helpful, the boat is not crowded as other schools and everyone makes u feel like a family. I highly recommend this dive center, they also take pictures of you without pay anything. Help them grow they deserve it 🥰

      Open water Diving with scubadoo
      What an amazing experience, I was extremely nervous to start but the instructors are very patient and reassuring. This was an eye opener into what lies below the surface! Thanks to all the team you are all fantastic. I also stayed in the hostel and it was very clean relaxing and also very private would recommend to anyone. This is a must!!

      Once in a lifetime experience.
      Just completed my open water at scubadoo. Jorge, you made me feel like I was aquaman. Great instructor and great school. With the diving I got free accommodation that was 10/10. Made me feel right at home.

      Best diving school on Ko Tao!!!
      Me and my friend started off with the open water license. Not only es our diving teacher Dean the best man, but the entire scubadoo team did a fantastic job in making this an unforgettable experience for the both of us! After having finished the open water course we then decided to continue with the advanced course. Gladly we could also do it with our beloved teacher Dean again! For the entire two courses we had Dean just for ourselves so he could really focus on us 100% and provide us with the best experience! 15/10 recommend!

      Great diving quality, with attention to personal details
      Did advanced adventurer course and multiple fun dives with scubadoo, and can absolutely recommend them. I experienced two strong points: First, the dive school consists of superb divers with excellent technical skills, who also knew which dive sites to recommend and which to skip (based on my preferences). Besides that, you could also feel they really loved the dives themselves and enjoyed showing you all the amazing flora and fauna around. Second, the atmosphere is laid back and inviting like you're diving with a group of longhknown friends. This is very different than other dive schools in Koh Tao I dove with or heard about. Third, the price was good. Although I believe there is minimal price variation in Koh Tao. Scubadoo seemed to be on the cheaper side (judging from other dive store signs).

    Our instructor, Neo, was amazing. I was initially really scared and took a while to get used to the heavy gear and diving in general. But he was patient throughout and allowed me to take my time to get comfortable.

    It was really fun doing my first dive with Scooba Doo. Highly recommended!
