I went Scuba in several countries, and in different parts of Thailand, however this dive centre is my favourite so far and surely I will visit again for more fun dives in Phuket. This place the most professional dive centre in Phuket by far, the communication with Rachel was excellent even before I ever landed in Phuket. Rachel is one of the best teachers I ever had, she was very eager to share her knowledge in every single opportunity it raised. Her enthusiasm and care for the underwater world is contagious which really makes you appreciate more the dive sites in Phuket. I was so pleased with the level of professionalism that I also took my girlfriend (a non-diver) for a Scuba diver certification as I know instructors like Rachel are extremely rare to find not only in Phuket but around the world, she was detailed, calm, professional, and patient. My girlfriend was a bit scared of open water but Rachel managed to teach how to enjoy the underwater world, and even teach key techniques like neutral buoyancy on the first day! If you are a new diver there is no better place you can choose and I would hardly trust an instructor to teach loved ones Scuba for the first time as much as Rachel. The dive sits of Racha Yai and Racha Noi are perfect for first time divers. I felt very privileged to have the opportunity to dive in beautiful dive sites with such a great dive guide. Special thanks to Rachel and James.

Rachel was our contact she went far out of her way to make our trip perfect in detail. It was a lot of planning durning COVID restrictions. Even though rules changed she was on top of them. We did a lot of dives and the site were amazing. We enjoied her company she was a lot of fun. I have never seen so many fish in each dive. She was able to do advance/ nitrox certificated my brother while never missing a dive with the group. Which was important to us.

Went on a trio of dives including the King Cruiser wreck, Shark Point, Koh Doc Mai. Despite being an advanced open water diver, this was my first wreck dive, boat dive and wall dive. I had a great guide James who took good care of me and showed me lots of interesting things. He was a great guy to chat with on the dive boat. Rachel (owner) was very efficient with responding to messages and emails. The company doesn't have their own dive boat but the one they use is spacious with ample space to soak up the sun. Overall, had a fantastic day out with Oceanic Dive Centre.

From the moment we reached Rachel's house, we were in the hands of a very experienced and professional dive guide. Rachel (owner and guide) took care of all our diving and snorkeling needs, from advising on where and when to go, to arranging everything necessary. She brought an extra mask that saved my refreshing dive from being just a technical requirement to a very nice shore dive (in Kata beach) as my own mask was leaking a lot. Dives in Phuket now (covid times) are done from shared boats, the two boats I had were very convenient with good food and plenty of space for diver's needs. The sites (min highlights being King Cruiser wreck and Koh Racha) were amazing and marine life superb and were almost alone. In this not-so-easy (covid) period I am happy to recommend Oceanic dive center as a place where professionalism and service are kept to the highest standards. Thank you Rachel for your recommendations on places to go in Phuket as well!
