About Siam Aquatic Adventures
I want to say hello (Sawadee Krup) and thank you (Krup Kuhn Krup) for looking at my company for your diving and tourism needs here in Phuket, Thailand.. My name is Gregg Aidikoff and I was born in Los Angeles, California USA. In 1974, I started to dive from the beach in Zuma and Malibu Beaches in Southern California. Fell in love with the underwater world and started diving almost every weekend as a teenager. Shortly thereafter, I started to explore dive destinations around the world and realised that diving would be my life and my career. After diving for 25 years, and accumulating over 10,000 dives, I made the decision in 1997 to become a Divemaster, and then a PADI Instructor. I started my first dive company in Los Angeles and called it "The Beverly Hills Dive Club". My first location for teaching diving was in the cool and beautiful kelp gardens of the Southern California area, exploring the Channel Islands of Santa Catalina, Anacapa, Santa Cruz, Santa Rosa and San Miguel. In 1998, I traveled to Cozumel, Mexico and worked for a friends company until 1999 when I started doing dive teaching tours in Hurghada,Egypt, and the Fijian island of Taveuni. I continued my dive training education and became a Master Instructor in 2002, which not only allowed me to train people how to scuba dive, but to teach divers how to teach diving. Moved to Kauai, Hawaii in 2003, teaching there until 2005, when I I moved to Medellin, Colombia. I learned to teach and speak in Spanish until 2008, then moved back to Southern California and continued teaching there until I moved to Phuket, Thailand with my then 13 year old son Zev..... Whew ! A worldwide tour !!!!!!! We LOVE Thailand and we are here to stay forever !!!!!!!! After spending two years here teaching and dive guiding, I felt it was time to open up my own company again, to teach my own very personal style of dive training. This year marks 41 years of scuba diving experience and over 14,000 dives. Please feel free to call me personally to say hi and to custom tailor a dive vacation to your personal desires.I like to connect with my guests from the start of your inquiries until you get here. I personally promise a trip of underwater and above water memories that you will never forget !!!!!

I want to try surfing for a long time…. And Now!!! Siam Aquatic Adventures has surfing. The instructor was friendly,patient and encouraging.He had been living in Hawaii. He was close by in the water all the time. I can be assured that I'm in good hands.I was able to stand up on the surfboard. I had a great time in Kata beach,Phuket.Superb location with sunset catch.I love it!! Highly Recommend Siam Aquatic Adventures for an amazing experience.

I went diving in Phuket and met the owner of Siam Aquatic Adventures on the boat. I found Gregg a very knowledgeable and safe dive guide/instructor. Last month, I was planning a trip to Koh Tao. I contacted Gregg and he put me in contact with a very reliable dive shop which made for a very enjoyable dive vacation. His connections and willingness to help out made the difference. I strongly recommend Siam Aquatic Adventures if you are planning to dive in Thailand! Gregg is very good at guiding dives throughout Phuket area.

From the start of our first day dive training we were made to feel completely at ease. We were welcomed by Tammy and Gregg, who helped us with completing the small amount of paperwork. We were then given all the appropriate equipment and chauffeured to the training dive pool about 10 minutes drive away. With over 40 years of experience, Gregg made us feel that we were in safe and knowledgeable hands throughout. The training was fun, yet very focussed and tailored to the specific strengths and weaknesses of each participant. We felt we made great progress and had a really enjoyable day. Can’t wait for our next dive!

From the moment me and my brother in law decided to go scuba diving in Phuket, I searched Tripadvisor for scuba diving in Karon, Phuket. Siam Aquatic Adventures appeared as the No. 2 company to go diving with. I wrote an email to Gregg to inquire about the cost and planning for our diving trip in December 25, 2019. Gregg immediately responded to all my questions and everything was set, including the BCDs and fins that we were going to need. On the day of our diving trip, Gregg took care of us especially my daughter who has less diving experience. Tammy was also great at spotting amazing sea creatures. She was able to show us cuttlefish matting and turtles. The boat which Gregg booked our trip was also First class in service, cleanliness and food. All in all, a great day to go diving in Phuket

This is my families second time diving with Gregg, the first was 2 years ago. Both then and now we were taken care of really well. The boat we took to go out to the dive sights had great food and plenty of space. The equipment we were given was comfortable. You can tell Gregg is very knowledgeable about diving as well. On top of this, the locations for these dives were amazing. I enjoyed my time diving with Siam Aquatic Adventures, and I can’t wait for my 3rd adventure here.
