Had no plans of any diving on my holiday. Me and my son just happened to end up just outside the shop on the beach and i asked him if he wanted to do a OW-course. The next day he started his training and two days later he had his OW certificate. Very professional and extremely friendly staff. On a few occasions we wanted to do a dive with short notice. This was never a problem, the owner ( Michael) went straight down to the beach and booked a boat. It all felt very safe diving together with the crew from Nautilus Dive & Surf. Good and well maintained gears for rent. Without a doubt I'll be back there soon. That time to get my AOW. Thanks to Michael, May and the rest of the staff. See you soon!

Don't ever go here. I rented a 5.8 board for a week and I paid 3.000 bahts for it. However, I only could used it the first day for 2h due to the lack of waves existing. I left the board in their shop after my one and only session, I went to the place a couple of times after it, in order to chat with the stuff, concerning about the swell as the conditions weren't good. Two days before the rental time will expire, I just went back and ask for my money back but one day use charge. The owner refused, saying that there were waves everyday and people surfing, when the only ones I'd seen were a few beginners catching foams like they were on their very first day and this didn't even happen everyday. So in the end they return me half of the money back and kept 1.200 bahts just for keeping an eye on the board I guess. Also, the beaches of Kata, Kata Noi, Karon and Nai Han were all covered by garbage every single morning. I spent sometime cleaning them up everyday while all you can see is the stuff from this place and from the other schools and shops, chilling, just watching videos on their phones...I still can't believe it.

Thank you very much for your review. Yes you have rent the board for one week and us you mentioned in your coment you came sametime by to see wahts going on. But you never told us you want to cancel becouse the waves are to small for you. We had to keep your board and were not allowed to rent it out,in case someone else want to have it,becouse you paid for it . Then finaly at day 5 you come and say you cancel and you want your money back.normaly i should have give you only a 2 days refund,but no i gave you half return,even many people been surfing this days but you as a pro of course could not and even you could not tell us that you want to cancel in the beginning,but you can complain now,thanks alot.

Enrolled my son for OW certificate an myself for a OW review. Got booked in for next day. Excellent instructor, (David) very calm and gave some very good advice for me as i had’nt been diving for a while. The whole staff with Michael the owner of the shop was absolutely awesom. Friendly and very professional. Did four dives at Koh Pu, just five minutes with longtail boat, gave us a very good experience, with both corralls, nice fish and a few dive thrus. I higly recommend this place, both for beginners and experienced divers. They’ve got a lot of different trips to choose from.

I rented a surfboard here with a bunch of people. They provided me the smallest board although I was the tallest and one of the heaviest of the group. After 10 minutes I gave it back to get another board that would better suit a beginner like me and be capable for my body size but they had none. After I refused to pay they even insulted me that I'm too dumb to surf and it's not the fault of the board but mine.. What a stupid way to act to your customers. Definitely going for another place next time!

Thank you for you review:(you come with a group of 10 people everyone got a board for beginners and 9 people were happy.you could not handle a longboard as a beginner which is normal and i do understand you were not happy with your skills,therefore we offer surflessons as well,but you just blame my staff and dont want to pay your bill for 200baht my staff even offerd you an other board but you didnt accept it.if you do like this with any other shop they even would call the police,if you dont pay your bill.anyway thank you for let me know.

My girlfriend and I took two classes with Joy and Wang.. we had tons of fun and found both of them to be very good and extremely kind instructors. They also have their own little animal farm at their surf shop, with some really cute pets 🙂 I would definitely recommend these guys, who also look after their students. One day the weather and waves were quite bad, so we agreed to reschedule to the next day, as they also felt it should be a fun experience, and not just push us out there for the sake of having that lesson and paying for it. So all in all great guys, great instructors who take care of you and make sure you enjoy it 🙂🙂 We hope to see you again Demitri and Anna
