This review is from April 2015 because I procrastinated on getting a trip advisor account. Now that I have one I have to leave one. I'll always remember my time with them. Chantel and her crew are so knowledgable and friendly! They not only care about their customers but the crew also does evening dives for picking rubbish off the... More

This was my second visit to Thailand and on this trip I was interested to take the PADI open water diving course. First myself, my wife and daughter would try the experience dive and if all good and we felt comfortable with the chosen company then I would continue to the PADI course. Descending 20m below the surface of the... More

For me it was my first contact with the dive world and I have to say it could not have been better. I decided to do the Open Water Diver course and since the beginning Kevan explained me clearly me all the different aspects of the modules and dives. They adapted completely to my needs. My instructor, Marco, guided me... More

Thank you for writing this review and we are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your course. I only met you on the first day although I did hear from your Instructor that you did extremely well on the course. Well done! Safe diving wherever you go! :-) Chantal. More

I previously left a review 6/17/16. It passed the TripAdvisor review process then was mysteriously deleted without any response from the shop. So I posted the review again on 7/14/16. It was mysteriously deleted again (see screenshot of previous review with date below). This place is simply downright dishonest. Original review below... I'll try to be brief. I dropped by... More

Last week my daughter and I were in Phuket. My daughter announces she wants to learnt to dive, so having done my TA research we set out to find a good scuba school. The first we came along was Phuket Scuba Club. We sat and talked to Kevan (the owner, and a really lovely guy). There was no hard sell,... More

I've been wanting to try SCUBA for awhile and finally had the time to take the course. I am so glad I did! I absolutely love it and am looking forward to more dive experiences. The club is great! Kevan picked me up, out of his way the first morning and took me to the club. I met Marco, my... More

We booked our first ever dive experience with Chantel and soooo happy we did it. From when we first met her, she was lovely, helpful and honest. We were a bit unsure at first whether we wanted to do it or not but after talking about it with her we decided to give it a go. The dive we went... More

On the beach, Mick took us through our PADI refresher course with a nice mixture of seriousness and humour covering the essentials of safety, communication and equipment. In the water he was a constantly reassuring presence, taking everything at a gentle, relaxed pace that allowed us to enjoy the many interesting fish and features which he pointed out to us.... More

What a find.  Chantel and Kevin have established a wonderful club feel and couldn’t have been be more helpful (they even invited me and my wife to their party for Songkran).  I did a scuba tune up after a 7 year gap and really enjoyed being able to do a dive on the local house reef rather than a pool...

my friend an Accident and Emergency consultant recommended this club to me as the only one they would use in Phuket. Safety and professionalism is second to none. What a great experience! If you are a beginner or an experienced diver Kevin and Chantel will look after you really well and ensure you have a great diving time. They also... More
