Professional outfit. Spacious and comfortable boats. Great staff who make you feel at home. Wholesome lunch. Good dive sites with prestine coral and plenty of marine life. Highlight for me was seeing a sea horse and ghost pipe fish. Thoroughly enjoyed my two days diving. Keep up the good work Eric and team.

Amazing diving centre, so friendly and professional. When we arrived on the island and went to enquire about obtaining our open water dive qualification, we were met with a smiley face and friendly attitude, she was able to answer all questions and put no pressure on us to decide there and then if we wanted to choose their dive school....

Previously, I had completed 2 fun dives in the Red Sea in 2009, which were every bit as magical as someone who grew up watching Jacques Cousteau could have expected. Due to various complications I never followed up on that experience until November 2016. Being on Ko Lipe for a week gave me the opportunity to book a diving course.... More

Just completed my SSI Open Water certification with Ko Lipe Diving. Amazing staff, warm welcome everyday. Very professional and performance oriented dive instructors - still always looking for fun and eye fishing under water. I had a great moment and I will definitely trust SSI in for my future diving certifications. Ask for Romain as a coach at Ko Lipe... More

We visited the OceanPro, Forra & D.J.L shops before going to Ko Lipe Diving and were utterly disappointed, next to no information was provided by all three shops and we decided it was best to avoid.

Ko Lipe Diving was one of the best dive shops I have been too. They are very focused on safety - which I like- and their instructors and dive masters are professional, skilled and friendly. Their equipment is good, and their two boats are nice as well (I preferred the biggest though, but the small is faster). I had a... More

We had a great dive with our dive masters for 2 dives. The equipment is the best we have encounter so far and it's been a pleasant experience. The boat is big and steady therefore you don't have to worry about the current and getting any seasick.
