I'm an Advanced Open Water Diver with Nitrox Certification and I was skeptical about diving in Thailand. So many people get certified here that many of the groups are a mixed bag and it's not uncommon to have groups surface after 20 minutes because of a newly certified diver. I didn't want that experience and once Chris understood that, he facilitated an amazing experience. After connecting me to their Office Manager, Nok, they took care of much of the hassle getting set up. Nok also kindly gave me some local tips as well, which was great. The dive itself went really well, primarily because of my instructor/guide, Vicki. Even though we didn't really see that much at Phi Phi (no sharks @ shark point, unfortunately) and the visibility wasn't that great. However, because of her amazing, can-do, fun and bubbly (pun intended) personality and guiding, she made all 3 dives extremely easy going and fun. She's also phenomenal at not only spotting incredible wildlife but also photographing it too. She sent me a bunch of amazing photos from the trip, which will always be a nice keepsake and souvenir in the days, weeks, and months to come. Highly recommended!

I spend some time on Phuket and did the PADI open water course with Indepth in October 2018. I did a private course and it was great, well organised and had a really good instructor (Mike). Not the cheapest option but worth it. With the dives you end up in one of the bigger boats with other groups as well and saw bigger groups and less explanation. The diving sites however could be better in other area's of the world. For learning it was great.

In-depth dive was fantastic! Our instructor Mike was brilliant and extremely patient and kind. My husband had dived before but it was my first time. I loved it so much I went on to do the PADI course, I honestly wouldn’t have had it not been for Mike. Communication was easy, instructors flexible and made sure you were safe as well as having a great time! Thoroughly recommend it and couldn’t recommend Mike more! Would recommend for first time divers for sure!

Went this summer with a friend to do a PADI open water course and only have good things to say. Our instructor, Sean, was friendly, patient and in general a brilliant guy to learn from. The diving itself was amazing with some great sea life to check out and a really friendly boat crew that provided us with breakfast and lunch. Can’t recommend them enough, great experience.
