Try a dive
Did a try dive. Was not busy. Selected equipment and set off to the boat. Great spots in the marine park. Short instructions (very familiar with many water-sports except scuba diving) and off we went. I student, one instructor. It was very beautiful, unbelievable amount of fish and coral. Great day, highly recommended. Roughly from 9-17. In between a snorkel stop and lunch.

Amazing first ever ‘Try Dive’ for a beginner
Nov 2019 • Solo
Fantastic value for money - staff are great fun and make you feel safe, visiting spots with incredible visibility and packed with underwater life. Many thanks Sky for being patient and assertive - an excellent instructor for a first-time diver. Inspired to go and get my Padi Open Water!

My parents gave me Try Diving as a birthday present. Thank you to both my parents but just as much to the staff of ScubaDawgs. From the beginning I felt very comfortable with the team. There was an execellent briefing when we got on the boat. In the beginning, with diving, I had a little trouble with equalizing my ears but my dive instructor helped me trough it with patience. We saw lots of things! Giant clamps, small stingrays and even a school of baby baracuda's. What a day!

Professional and fun!
Me and my friend had never dived before, but wanted to try scuba diving while in Koh Chang. We looked it up and decided that the never dived before course would suit us well, and we were NOT dissapointed! It was amazing!
All the instructors and staff were so professional and welcoming, everyone with a smile on their face :D
We went diving with Ale (or Ali?) from Chile and she was super nice! We felt very safe in the water and saw sooooo many fishes, and a sea turtle!
On the boat we got a very tasty lunch, which was good because we got very hungry.

We highly recommend!

Great Dive Shop in Koh Chang!
I can’t believe I forgot to write this review until now! After shopping around with dive centers in Bang Bao, I chose Scuba Dawgs based on price and review, plus the woman who helped us make our reservation was very informed and helpful.
I opted for 3 fun dives, and my partner who had never been diving did the Try Diving. I have to admit, I was pretty nervous that it was his first time and I wanted him to feel really safe and enjoy it. I wanted him to have a fun introduction that would leave him wanting to pursue more diving - and that’s exactly what happened! It went great... Thank you Scuba Dawgs!
My partner only had one other diver with him and the instructor, and I only had two, so that was really nice.
Paul and Lom were both fantastic instructors to work with. Both very friendly and knowledgeable. I can’t say that the boat or equipment was the newest or fanciest, but everything was well kept. The boat crew was great and very attentive. Food was good. All around, it was a great experience and I would absolutely choose Scuba Dawgs again! You won’t find a better price on the island - I looked.

(The actual dives were pretty good, but remember that this is not Koh Tao. This review is about the dive shop, not Koh Chang. With that said, the HTMS Chang was soooo impressive and well worth the trip.)

The most fun you can have diving
I did my open water certificate and went for a few fun dives afterwards. Everything is perfectly managed, the dive sites are amazing (visit the wreck!), the boats are great and the food is so tasty. But what really makes the difference are the people. The crew of the boats, the dive masters and instructors, everybody else working at scubadawgs is just a pure joy. We were laughing like crazy and having such a great time. Those are really some cool dudes. And the best: I really did learn a lot, I felt save the whole time and cant wait to go diving with them again.

Can't fault the instructors, great experiece
Oct 2016 • Couples
We found scubadawgs very straight forward and professional. We had been to see BB Divers and then went to SD for a comparison of price and service. My partner did his PADI open water 10 years ago and I had never dived - David made a big effort to make sure we'd still dive together and both get a good day's learning and diving despite our different abilities. We felt BB Divers were trying to hide some costs like the national park entry, and when we asked about the length and depths of the dives, the story changed when pushed. scubadawgs were honest from the start and delivered on their promise - in fact we spent even longer than they promised in the water!
We went with a group of about 8 other divers and we had one instructor for the two of us (David). He got my partner involved in setting up the equipment, getting a good feel of what he remembered from his training. David then went through hand signals, safety and breathing with us both - very clear and patient instruction. He made sure my partner was ok in the water and then helped enormously with me as I struggled to get to grips with my breathing. After a change of masks I was much better and david showed us rays, trigger fish, moray eels, box fish, butterfly fish, angel fish. Even though the visibility wasn't great we still had a great day.
Plenty of food and refreshments available. Highly recommended!!

Great instructors
Apr 2016 • Friends
First time diver...and probably last but nothing to do w Scubadawgs. My instructor was more than patient w me trying to build up confidence to do it but eventually ended up switching to snorkeling while rest of group did their dive.

Amy was fantastic never felt pressured or impatience from her as I tried to get comfortable. The rest of my group loved their dive and would highly recommend
