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 spent a couple days diving with this very organised and professional company while my husband snorkelled. The site for non divers recommended was Koh Tao and my husband was not disappointed. He was the lone snorkeler but one of the crew accompanied him, while I dived. The company really does provide everything from gear to towels etc and I... More

Dived with Eric and his staff while our married kids got certified here. Very attentive, professional, and fun to dive with. The vis was not great, and the number of divers at some locations like Sail Rock was crazy, but they tried to make the best of each situation. They have good equipment, from boats to dry bags, and a... More

16 yr old son and I did 2 days (4 dives) with DDivers, no hesitation recommending them: efficient booking, and we'll run on the day. Good equipment and boat.

We booked as they were recommended on trip advisor and dove at sail rock. They run the tour and organise equipment for you very smoothly. Would recommend them. Comfortable boat and decent meals on board.

My kids (14&12) and me tried Discovery as our first time dive partners. We loved the entire experience that they provided us. Right from the registration to the pool training which was patiently handled by Karli. She is an amazing instructor and would recommend anyone with kids to try her. My son also had the opportunity to dive with Senya... More

I totally echo the positive comments below for Discovery Dive Centre. I often look at reviews on Trip Advisor, however, this is the first trip I have personally written my own review. My Dive Guide was Steve with Tamara (also an instructor) who's first trip out in Thailand was with Steve and myself - I would say all the instructors... More

We had a fantastic time snorkelling around Koh Tao. We stopped off at two different bays, the first we had a delicious Thai lunch provided. The second bay we were let off the boat in deep water, and the coral and fish were incredible. The instructors were meant to be taking photos but the camera wasn't working. That didn't worry...

We have never been scuba diving ...but thought let's give it a try. We are both in our late 50's and the experience both my husband and I had was amazing. What a professional and caring group of people. We had Steve and he made us feel safe and reassured us in every aspect of scuba diving principles for first... More

I completely recommend that visitors in Samui go diving (as Samui is filled with beautiful coral reefs and full of marine life). If you choose to dive, then choose Discovery Dive Centre. Though you have plenty of dive centres in Samui to pick from, our choice to get PADI certified with Discovery Dive centre turned out to be the best... More

Thank you Littlekim, This is one of the reasons we love what we do. It is extremely rewarding when customers have their first experience with us and then decide to commit to a dive course. Always remember where you had your first breathes :) More
