I am so glad I managed to find this dive centre. The couple who run this are absolutely wonderful and Rachel was really helpful helping us decide whch were the better dives to do at what times. My partner was not qulaified aand had only done a scuba intro so rachel mentioned that he could use the 3 dives we had booked towards him qualifying. Simon was absolutely fab and while teaching my partner before and during the dives helped me with some of the stronger currents. We were do pleased with this recommendation as it was so sensible as now he is a fully trained diver like myself. We would never have thouht about combining the two. We were also always welcome to come by for beer or a cup of tea which was so lovely and made the experience even better. Please book with these lovely people as they are so personal and really help you get the best out of your trip and money. I will definately be using them again if we ever go back, I know they had a lot of regulars who always come back to them as well.

I have just spent four wonderful days, taking and completing the SSI open water course. This started with meeting Joel and Rachel. They gave me information on all their courses before leaving England, this allowed me to choose the course for me and complete the online training in plenty of time. Once in Thailand I was greeted like a friend and walked through all I needed to do. My instructor Simon, very patient man 😄, was knowledgeable, instructive and someone I came to trust in the water. Overall If you want to experience scuba diving go see Joel/ Rachel and their team.

Hi David Thank you for this lovely review! We're delighted that you and W had a good day. I still can't get over that you saw a guitar shark on Shark Point! You're obviously a lucky diver :) I've never seen one, so next time you're here I'd better dive with you myself! All the best from Rachel and the whole team

We had a wonderful afternoon with Rachel & Joel who took us out scuba diving in Phuket. They were so friendly and caring, & although we had various levels of diving experience within our group, they were so aware of where we all were at and catered to our every need. Absolutely recommend them. Super interesting dive, lots of fun and huge on safety and sensiblities whilst not comprising on fun and a great experience. Thanks so much guys! Best wishes from the Lahyani Family
