I was in Krabi - Ao Nang in week 9 and had seen on Poseidon homepage that they had a dive “Superday” consisting of King Cruiser Wreck, Shark Point and Anemone Reef. I am an AOWD diver with 110 dives. It had been very windy for a week, and it was first decided on the way out that it was Superday. We were only 4 divers, but Daniels decided to go anyway – Thank you Dan. I was were collected at the Hotel, then a Longtail to the Boat, got all our equipment and sailed for about 2 1/2 hour. On the way we got a very good briefing on all the dive sites we were diving at. I could write many pages about what we saw ( 2 sharks) – fantastic – but I will leave that to other people. The fantastic thing about this dive was that everybody was so enthusiastic about diving even the instructors and owner. I have dived in many dive centres and many of them are dive factories. This dive centre was very special and good for divers – it has the right sprit – I had such a nice day. Thank you, Poseidon, and thank you Andy.

Ao Nang, Thailand1 contribution
As a solo traveller, I have planned my trip to Thailand few months in advance. I researched all local diving centres in Ao Nang and came across Poseidon. Loved the fact that they care about the maritime life and the environment. I have enquired about CMAS * course and they’ve replied immediately (despite big time difference) and my course was booked. When I got to Ao Nang, I visited the centre few days prior my course, Danny was very welcoming and explained few things before the start. I was very lucky as I had 1:1 course and my instructor Andy was amazing, very patient, really friendly and welcoming. They looked after me really well and helped childhood dream come true! I had amazing 5 dives around local islands, seeing wonders of the underwater world! Corals, fishes, sharks and sea snakes and much much more! I was gutted, I couldn’t make any other dives with them as I had my trip fully packed with excursions and site seeing. I highly recommend this diving centre as guys are absolutely amazing! I’ll be definitely coming back to this area and dive with them again!

We, a group of 3 people, begun diving at this diving center in early 2017. Andy was our instructor and we made the CMAS 1 Star course. After the thought us about the gear, we did our first "dive" in a pool. I found this a very appropriate location for the first diving attempts since it was familiar to me. This and due to the very good instructions by Andy, I was able to eliminate all concerns I had for good reasons. We have been told that possible problems could be solved the fastest underwater and there is no need to go to the surface immediately. These good explanations where very helpful and way more effective than just some information like that it might be dangerous if one does an uncontrolled ascent to the surface. Andy was always there when one of us needed some help, be it due to bad bouyancy or the like. Furthermore, he brought in just the right balance between sedateness and seriousness. The other dives of the course we started from the boat. They were also very nice and we already could begin seeing and enjoying the underwater life. What is not the expectation I had when doing this course but made me very happy as well was the extremely delicious Thai food they brought to the boat. This was a very nice side-effect and a good opportunity to get to know the Thai kitchen better. For the final exam, we were at the diving center and met Daniel, it's owner. He is also very kind and well experienced. We had a really great time with him as well.

In Ao Nang I dived around the local sites with Poseidon Divers. We went to Ko Sii, Ko Dor, Ko Doc Mai for diving and all the dives were interesting and I saw variety of marine life. The visibility around the local islands is not always the best (especially one of the days was Full Moon). The boat was well equipped and the food was delicious (the khaosuey on one of the days was outstanding!) The dive guides were great and the atmosphere was quite chilled and relaxed. Groups were small and the dive guides were attentive and great. Special shout out to Arm who showed interesting things on the dive and was always enthusiastic and helpful (I am waiting for his awesome turtle video!) Ryan, another dive master was also friendly and knowledgeable. Overall great team!
