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!!

Came across Kiwidiver when I was searching for night+fluo diving in Phuket. My friends and I were highly impressed with Vincent's professionalism and knowledge through his exchanges with us during the dive briefing and setting up the gear. The fluo diving aspect was a fresh diving experience, being able to see the coral glow in green and red tones, especially... More

A friend and I recently booked a day’s diving with Phuket-based dive operator ‘Kiwidiver’. The dive – off Kata Beach – was superb. Good viz [for a beach dive], a phenomenal amount of life, and our guide – Kevin Black – guided us expertly around the site. I am a UK-based dive instructor who has been diving for over 12... More
