Have dove many times with Discovery Dive Centre. The owner is great and very accommodating. The team of instructors are top notch. My son did his OW course in 2013 and now his Dive Master Certification with Discovery. We also had Discovery run a DSD course for a group of 11 and 12 year olds last month. Have dove Koh Tao, Sail Rock and Samran Pinnacle with Discovery. All trips have been wonderful. If you are in, or heading to Samui, they have boats and instructors ready to take you out. All instructors had their COVID vaccines and all safety measures were in place. Reach out to them today and book a trip.

We rented a 3 engine boat for our group and we were all convinced that we've made the best choice and decision to book with them. Zoey was awesome and so is Pierre. We went to very good diving and snorkeling spots. We saw a lot of different species of fish, an eagle ray and 2 sharks!!! Zoe guided us in the water and she was very happy to point and name the fishes. It was great for our kids and I. Highly recommended!

Thoroughly enjoyed my 2 dives at Sail Rock with Discovery divers and only wish i had the time to do more with them. Looked after well from start to finish. Would seem to have been the best equipped, most comfortable vessel at the site that day. Sail rock definitely a site worth diving. Viz wasnt amazing on the day and didnt get to see the whale sharks that apparantly visit on occasion. But relished seeing both Groupers and Barracudas as big as ive seen anywhere as well as plenty else to look at.

Samui Discovery Divers, certified me with Open Water, Advanced Diver and Enriched Air Diver. For my first Open Water my instructor Mei Yang was very attentive to the fact that I was not a strong swimmer and over the course I not only received my Open Water but also gained more confidence to swim further both with and without my BCD. Her in-depth knowledge of both PADI and long experience of teaching not only guided me through my Open Water certification but also taught my more aspects on respecting the ocean and the marine environment. Samui Discovery Divers impressive manner of service and care taken during my first course lead me within two months too further my studies into Advanced Diver & Enriched Air Diver. Eric Vinik instructed me and my buddy for our Advanced Diver & Enriched Air. He gave us ample time to study our E Learning prior to the course and was on hand to answer any questions before we arrived at the dive sites. With the Deep Dive & Enriched Air more focus was placed on the safety and gassing out so that we understood that the pre checks of both equipment and dive site where essential. Eric has dived and instructed for many decades and all around the world so it was nice also to hear his stories that gave us a boarder view of the joy of being a PADI Diver.
