Description:

Discovery Divers is the premier 5-star PADI dive center in Koh Samui...

Discovery Divers is the premier 5-star PADI dive center in Koh Samui offering the highest quality of service for reasonable prices. We are one of the longest running dive shops on the island as having been in business for over 14 years and have the most experienced and respected full time dive staff in the Gulf of Thailand. Discovery is also one of the only diver centers who runs our own speedboats. We offer a full range of PADI courses from Bubblemaker, Discover Scuba diving and open water diver up to professional level divemaster training. We have full-time dive staff that speaks fluent English, German, French, Chinese, Cantonese, Japanese, Italian and Spanish. At Discovery Divers we are committed to fun and safety. We believe that the customers needs come first. This is why we have access to the widest selection of boats on the island including our own Discovery Divers speedboats and run numerous daily trips to all of the beautiful dives sites in the gulf of Thailand. We realize that it is YOUR vacation and usually can accommodate any request for courses or certified divers to go to the location you want to go on the day you want to go, with the type of boat (tour boat or speedboat)that you want to go on. We also offer photography services and rentals using top of the line Canon cameras and have console and wrist computers for use with courses or certified divers. This along with our stock of exceptional and modern dive equipment from Aqua Lung, Mares and Scubapro will make your dives safe, fun and worry free. Come by and see our dive shop, meet our staff, and see our onsite training pools, equipment room, washing area and classroom in front of the Amari Hotel in Chaweng Beach.

I had a fantastic three days diving with this company to get my open water certificate! They are extremely safe, professional, but also so much fun! I got to go to two different dive sites, and the underwater life was amazing in both. Highlight was swimming with two turtles! Could not recommend this company highly enough, especially my instructor Pommy!... More

My husband and I dove with Discovery two days. I have been certified for many years but this was my husbands first open water dive since he certified. The first day we went to Ko Tao to Champon Pinnacle and Twin Rocks. The second day we went to Sail Rock where we saw two breathtaking whale sharks multiple times throughout... More

Me and my girlfriend dove twice with them during our stay in Koh Samui. She did her OWD with a German speaking instructor, Ivo, who was very competent and simply a nice guy to have around. The entire dive shop is very professional, sticking to the PADI rules and keeping their equipment, incl. boat, tidy and in good shape. Overall... More

Discovery Divers is the premier outfit in Koh Samui, running their own speedboats allows timely travel to the best dive sites on the island; and they do not disappoint. Great visibility with lots of indigenous marine life and coral. Probably the best aspect of the dive was the instructors, an eclectic mix of bilingual, experienced and knowledgable divers who can...

I can't say enough about this dive, the operation and the staff. It was one of the best dives of my life and there was no trouble the entire excursion. The dive was in the top 10 primarily because of the site and the amazing whale shark encounter. We dove Sail Rock and when we arrived, a whale shark was... More

Went with my 12yo son for our first ever dive on Sunday with Divepoint Koh Samui. I had wanted to do this for more than 40 years but never got round to it. Had very high expectations which were exceeded by a country mile. The whole experience was extremely well organised, very professional but also tailored to be very personal.... More
