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.

Spent two days with the team doing the pool work and dives for the Padi Scuba Diver qualification. This was the first time diving for my kids so rather than signing up for the Open Water Diver, just wanted to see how things would go, so the Scuba Diver course is a good intro. Eric handled all of my questions... More

I chose these guys for my Padi Scuba Diver exam based on the reviews found here and couldn't be happier. They are truly professionals and have a great attitude. My 2 days included training at the pool (only thing I would have liked more is for them to have a dedicated pool and not to use the one from the... More

We had 3 fabulous days diving, with a great crew and dive guides. 2 children finished off their PADI qualification sea dives with a superb instructor - great fun and teaching - while my wife and I dived. Once the children were qualified, we dived as a family. A really great dive company. Easy to organise, very punctual, excellent boats,... More

The booking and payment process was faultless and our initial dealing with Discovery dive centre and Eric was effortless. Our 10 & 13 year old are both recently PADI open water certified and we wanted a professional and reassuring experience. This was apparent from the get go with a courteous and comfortable collection service from the hotel. To then be... More

I got certified for open water diving and I couldn't have been happier with the entire experience. They take care of every little detail, from hotel pickup to lunch to end of day beers. They even worked with my weird schedule. It was really excellent overall and it was made even better by my personal dive instructor, Michael. Honestly, all... More

Great staff: Ake, Pommi and Alex were all particularly great to dive with and made the trip great fun. Someone knelt on a sea urchin while we were there, and another got sick - but the staff handled everything really well. A couple on our boat also got engaged under water. DDC made it all very special for them.

Very efficient service, punctual and not over crowded. Excellent dive instructors. Divers split into small groups - we were three divers with one instructor. Great food for lunch too. Nice touch to receive the photographs within a day of the dive. Thanks!

This five star dive center offers truly five star treatment. I first booked two days of fun diving. With the incredible fast speedboats we were at some amazing dive spots like sail rock and around Ko Tao within no time. It's loud and windy on the boats so you might consider to take some ear plugs with you. The company... More
