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 !!!!!

The class was amazing as I finally learned diving and explored life underwater. Gregg is such a great instructor who has extensive experiences. He thought me important skills and things you need to know how to survive. Easy to catch up, good session for the beginner. Thankfully to his patience as always ensured I could pick up the right techniques and get it done correctly. Strongly recommend to join Siam Aquatic Adventures.

Diving with Gregg from Siam Aquatic Adventures was a relaxing chill experience. Gregg is organized and had everything taken care of. When my dive computer battery was about to die he had another dive watch on hand. We enjoyed our dives immensely! On another note, my husband and I work for Quality Schools International Phuket and Gregg has been amazing in working with our organization so that students from our other schools around the world can come to Phuket and learn to dive. He does a fantastic job teaching young people the art and joy of scuba diving.

I came to Phuket via the Sandbox in July 2021. Traveling on my own. The first time in Asia. Covid is still a very big Factor to everything. I was curious about the country and culture (and food ;)) and one of my bucket List things in live was getting certified as an Open Water Diver. I met a Girl from LA which recommended me Siam Aquatic Adventures (Gregg) I was curious and excited so I wrote him a message. After approximately 20 Seconds I got a FaceTime call from Gregg and I was just thinking like „Damn this guy is so freaking cool and chill - he has to be your Instructor.“ we made an appointment and met up. I have never seen so much Scuba Diving experience in one Person. It felt like he was able to Dive even before learning to walk haha. No just kidding. As soon as possible I could start with the academic Part of the Class. During covid everything was a little bit sloppy because of the Restrictions etc. So we were not able to do the Pool Sessions immediately. So Gregg just asked me If I got time and he showed me some hidden Gems and secret places on the Island almost no tourist knows. (Eating with Locals and heaving the best Kebab in Thailand) We went together on a Hike, because we were still not able to do the pre Pool Sessions which are necessary to do before going into the Ocean. Gregg is a person you are able to look up to. I mean sure I am 23 but he gave me another view of life and we had great conversations and very funny ones haha. I automatically felt comfortable and safe in his class. The thing was That I was traveling Thailand and I wanted to see the Country side as well. Due to Restrictions of the pool and my new plans I left phuket and we postponed my class together, which worked out so easily. I am very thankful for that flexibility! After I came back to Phuket we could do the Pre Sessions and I finally got in the Endless Blue. Sadly nit with Gregg himself but with one of his Instructors (Franck from France) and Hell yeah Franck is such a polite and cool guy and in the first minutes of meeting him. You will be just stunned. Diving with him was out of this world. Sure we haven’t had the best conditions and surely I got seasick the wirst day of diving at Racha Yai and Racha Noi. But it went out so freaking awesome. The 2nd day we went to PhiPhi Island and on my second day I already saw Black Tip Sharks !!!! Amazing. All in all i just can say thank you Gregg and Franck and Tammi and Brian haha;) It was a pleasure getting certified with you and I just can say one wise thing (as wise as I can be with 23 haha) Get certified with Siam Aquatic Adventures!! You will have the time of your life! Thanks again! Paul from Germany

Very patient and experienced instructor. Made a booking for getting the open water diver certificate with a short period of time. The training and detail provided by Siam aquatic adventures is quite sufficient. Instructor (Gregg) is pretty experienced and know the most effective way to get you know the technique to be able to dive in the open water quickly regardless how much you know about this activity. As a person concerned much about the safety, the instructor would ensure you learn how to deal some unexpected situation in the open water during diving training. In addition, he will be able to show you all sort of wonderful underwater marine creature through those fun dive session. If you want to have comprehensive training with proper care, you may want to look at their service, 潛水教練擁有相當豐富的潛水經驗,所以可以用十分簡單但有效的方式讓你學到許多潛水需要的技巧。 整個課程要花三到四天的時間才能完成,在泳池練習時,教練十分的有耐心會反覆的確認基本潛水技巧都能有效應用後才會進行另外兩天的開放水域潛水。在開放水域時,教練除了會確保你能看到許多豐富的海洋生物外,也會在測試潛水技巧的課程後幫你記錄在中的影像,這些都是包含在購買的服務中不另外收費。在其中一次潛水中遇到強烈潛流,教練也很迅速的帶我脫離並安全的浮升回到船上。 如果你想要全包且沒有額外收費並且在有豐富經驗的潛水教練帶領下取得執照,siam aquatic adventures是你可以考慮的公司
