My family and I went on 2 separate dive trips with this group. In the main part of Krabi there is a tiny little dive shop front near the Rasta hole in the wall bar. In there is the friendliest and loveliest lady Rudeerat who was so helpful with the dive information. First trip, We were picked up from the hotel and taken to the dive shop out on the beach to get the gear and get on the boat. All the guys there were lovely and so helpful. after a bit of a trip out to some of the most beautiful islands we were given a briefing ( I was diving and my wife and 2 kids were snorkelling.) It was a little hard to understand some parts and for a second language learner that was there I think he missed most of the information. Absolutely beautiful dive and a great lunch had for the surface interval. 2nd dive and new dive spot was again some amazing diving with a swim through. Not deep dives but still amazing. 2nd trip we took out to Phi Phi and it was on a Kontiki with two other dive shops. Comfortable large boat with plenty of space to hang out and chill for the long ride. Another 2 amazing dives with some really nice and helpful staff. The tour boat had a photographer that was available to buy some pictures from and they were really nice.

Had a wonderful experience - we dived at Phi Phi, we completed 2 dives around half hour each and ~10 meters deep, Matt was an excellent instructor. Will definitely come back and get certified! :)

I took the Padi open water course. Matt was an excellent teacher, and I really enjoyed the course. I felt 100% save and confident before, during and after diving, due to Matts great instructions. The hole team is an bunch of great people - very helpful and with great humor. Will for sure visit next time I am in Thailand!
