I'm and experienced diver and took my girlfriend who had zero experience (never even snorkeled) my dives were excellent in a small group with a great DM named Oscar. My girlfriend did PADIs Discover SCUBA Diving program and the guys at Samui Dive Tribe went above and beyond with her. She got two proper full length dives (minimum 45 minutes) with great hands on assistance from Mustafa that made her feel super comfortable and interested in pursuing diving further. I would recommend these guys to anyone interested in diving while on Ko Samui.

Went to Koh Samui to take beginners diving course. Very easy using Samui Dive Tribe as a package deal. The hotel manager, Hakan, is extremely helpful and the stay was all in all very good. The hotel is located pretty much in the center of Fisherman's Village and everything from bars to restaurants is litteraly one step away. The beach is only 50 meters from the hotel as well. I would definately recommend this.

Myself and two friends went diving to koh Tao with samui dive tribe, the instructor was clear and concise with directions from the get go and made sure the whole experience was fun and safe. Food on board was excellent, they had an array of different options and drinks. Funnily enough we meet another member of the staff on a night out in samui. He was a gentleman from the start,they all made the experience a truly unique event. Three happy Irish boys. Thanks Dave and Sean, all the best.

Myself and my daughter booked a day diving via this company, expecting to be going with a larger company with their own equipment. However it transpired that we were on a shared boat, with several others and the boat was relatively cramped, with other companies on board. We booked a vegetarian meal, unfortunately Dave "forgot" to inform the Captain of the boat which resulted in my daughter having nothing to eat. The quality of food was relatively low in any event, as such I didn't each either. The dive conditions were relatively poor, albeit we accept this is not Dave's fault. However his attitude was! We was arrogant and quite standoffish (I'm not posh BTW, being originally from a Council estate in Manchester). His answers were short and blunt, almost as if he didn't want to bother talking to us. This put my daugher off her 2nd dive, so we didn't bother having that dive. We had no idea of the depth of the dive or it's length (we did inform Dave at the outset we'd be totally relian on his computer) and at the end of the day found Dave very evasive when asked for dive details, in the end simply making it up from his memory as he couldn't be bothered it seemed to refer to us computer. We found him to be very unprofessional and am considering whether to report him to PADI for investigation.

We are so sorry about your bad experience with Dave. We took the dive center over in November 2019 and Dave is not working with us anymore. You can see some of the new reviews about us and might give us a chance to give you a totally different experience if you ever visit Koh Samui again. Kind regards Hakan
