GREAT dive shop and friendly staff! I got certified in California waters and this was the first dive in tropical waters after my open water PADI certification. I highly recommend Ashish who was my buddy to the dive. He was very helpful setting up the gear and checking/rechecking. Ashish was a great teacher/buddy making sure I was comfortable at all...

Totally professional dive centre. Excellent dive guides and staff. Good kit. Spent a day with Ash and Ben, diving King Cruiser and Koh Doc Mai. Challenging diving due to weather conditions and my sea sickness but Ash took it all in his stride. Thanks Ash. Will certainly come back to Kiwidiver if we visit Phuket in the future.

I was fortunate enough to book a discover scuba dive and end up one on one with the owner Kevin. Kevin was extremely professional and helpful making my first scuba experience one to remember. Next time I dive in Thailand it will definitely be here.

Had a great trip with Vincent who is extremely experienced and kept an eye on the dive group. He made sure gear was set up properly and offered suggestions on becoming more streamlined. He also noticed that my dive computer was faulty at the end of our first dive at King Cruiser and told us to do an 8min safety... More

Had a two dive trip - I am PADI open water certified - Cat arranged the trip via email and was EXTREMELY efficient and Sam was my dive master. Lucky to dive one-on-one. All went very well and I felt in good hands.

We were recommended Kiwidiver by an independent professional diver as the best diving school in the area. We were not disappointed by the high level of professionalism, delivered with a friendly but thorough approach. The equipment was of very high quality; our instructor Vincent was excellent in all aspects; and Kevin (the boss) was extremely helpful in facilitating our experience.... More

Prior to arriving in Thailand for three weeks travelling and diving all over,I arranged my Kiwi dives by e mailing Kevin in the shop. He was really helpful and got back to me quickly. Having not dived Thailand for 25 years I was a bit unsure about it all. Our dive guide/instructor for both dives days around Chalong was Sam.... More

Excellent service and very professional diving center! We had a great trip with Sam, our diving instructor, who was guide for only the two of us. Equipment was good, food was good and diving was great! Even got to see a juvenile whale shark!!
