I'd heard of Kata Scuba through other reviews I'd read before heading out to Phuket. We first popped our heads into the dive centre on Kata Beach, we almost settled for their offer but we headed over to Kata Scuba to just double check and make a comparison. So glad we did. Bank and his dad Andre were super accomodating when we got to the centre and helped us with pricing and multiple dive options. I was completing the referral for my Open Water Course and managed to get 4 dives from Kata Beach sorted across two days. My girlfriend booked in to do the King Cruiser wreck dive and swears that it was one of the best dive sites she has visited. Highly recommend using Kata Scuba for your dives in Phuket. Great service, competitive prices and supporting a local business. If we head back to Phuket we'll be heading to Kata Scuba immediately.

We were walking along the road and Kata Scuba was the first dive centre we saw. We went in and met Andre. I knew immediately I had made the right choice. He has been Diving in Phuket over 30 years and was extremely knowledgeable. I needed some fins and a mask and he was kind enough to drive me to AquaMaster where I was able to get what I needed. I enjoyed his company immensely and the boats he set me up on and the dives guides he used were all top notch. As far as I'm concerned, he was the best thing about my trip to Phuket. I have no hesitation to recommend him if you are going diving there.

I had a fantastic day with Kata Scuba. They provide second to none service and it was pleasure to deal with. Special thanks to my amazing instructor Angie who went over and above to introduce me to scuba diving. Next time I would have no hesitation to dive with them again.

Was looking for a Padi accredited dive shop to go diving with when I stumbled across Kata Scuba. They where very professional from the second I walked in, and they are fluent in English, which is rare around here. I ended up doing my Advanced Open Water through them, and found the owner to be very knowledgeable, taking his time to teach me all I need to know. If you are planning to dive in Thailand, or maybe even considering a course, I would definitely recommend them, especially if you're English...

Hi, this review is a bit late, but I wanted to give a shout out to Kata Scuba for our great experiences. My wife and I first went to Kata beach in Nov. 2014 to do some diving. I read some reviews online and went to a few dive shops in the area with good ratings, but they all felt like diving snobs. After feeling disappointed we rode our scooter around the beach area to cool off from the heat and frustration. I happen to see Kata Scuba, and decided to give one last try. We were pleasantly surprise Andre and Bank took the time to answer all our questions about the dive sites in the area, so we could decide which one we would like. We decided to book dives with them to Koh Racha Noi, and Koh Racha Yai for the next day. The dive master we had was wonderful. He went at our pace, and we always felt safe. The diving site itself was good and he even took some pictures of us diving. We like them so much that we booked with them again the following day to dive Koh Phi Phi, and Koh Bida. The dive master again was great, and these 2 dive sites are awesome. we saw lots of fish and coral, but the highlight was swimming with a turtle and watching it eat for 5 minutes. In March of 2017 we wanted to get our AOW so we did not hesitate. We took the course with Kata Scuba, Carmillo was our instructor. He was a great taking the time to explain everything in detail. I especially like how he did the underwater navigation. It was much simpler the way he explained it. He also took some great photos of us doing our underwater studies. After we got AOW we wanted to do a 3 day live-aboard to the Similan Islands. Again Andre and Bank took care of us from the booking of the boat to the use of their equipment. Everything went smoothly and the diving was amazing especially around the Richelieu Rock. If you are ever in Phuket and are looking to do some diving. Stop by and see Bank and Andre. Just talk to them and decide for yourself.
