I completed my Advanced Open Water course with Kon Tiki and had nothing short of an excellent experience. The staff was very professional and helpful. Steve was a great point of contact through the process, and a very knowledgeable instructor once we started training. Boat trip was punctual and the local dishes served both days for lunch were super tasty. The conditions were quite clean and it was clear the staff were adherent to COVID safety protocol once onboard. Would definitely recommend this dive shop!

Thank you Madeleine for this lovely review. It was great to have you onboard with us to complete your PADI AOW course. We try our best to ensure the trips are a pleasure from pick-up to drop-off and we use well renowned local suppliers for our lunch and snacks. It really is appreciated that you mentioned the safety protocols which highlights the hard work that goes on behind the scenes during these difficult Covid-19 times making our trips as safe as humanly possible. Hopefully we will see you again in Krabi soon, who knows, maybe for a Rescue Diver course. 🙏

Amazing first time diving in Krabi! My guide and point of contact, Steve, is fantastic!. Steve has been very responsive and informative from my beginning email till the end. He went above and beyond to make sure all my questions and concerns were addressed. He even offered to arrange a trip even in the case of no other divers (especially during this Covid time). Luckily, there are others who joined which made the trip more fun Will definitely be back again!

Thank you very much Yui for taking the time to submit this honest and relevant review. It is true that it is difficult at the moment with the Covid-19 restrictions to make the daily diving and snorkelling trips, that we used to take a little for granted, happen as often as we would like however if someone would like to go we will do our very best to make it possible even with reduced numbers. As you said we did have others join us and with the conditions being almost perfect everyone had a great day. We look forward to seeing you again soon and maybe even add another to the many PADI Specialties you have already accrued.

Hi Suntaree, Thank you for this great review, there is nothing our instructors love more than helping our guests take their first breaths underwater. We all try to make it as fun as possible while retaining a hive level of safety and control. Maybe next time we will see you when you take the PADI Open Water Diver course.

Thank you very much for taking time out to submit this lovely review. Our freediving market is definitely increasing and we are pleased that so many are enjoying taking the certification course. Brendon is one of the most experienced instructors in the area so we are happy to have him onboard. We look forward to seeing you next time you are in the south of Thailand.

Traveled from US to Thailand during Covid-times had last minute changes to my plans given the second wave. I found that Kon-Tiki was the only operator running in Krabi and reached out to Steve, the manager who explained the situation (reduced number of divers coming to Krabi). My situation was not simple - I happened to only have 4 days in Krabi/Railay, I had different pickup and drop off locations (and if you know the area, you can only get to certain places by longtail boat). He kept me in the loop with possible dive dates and also arranged for a personal longtail which saved me time and money. His responses were always prompt and informative and I may not have been able to go diving at all had it not been for Steve. My dive was great. There was a pair of experienced divers, me, the divemaster Leif Backstrom and the captain. They all knew each other and I was also the least experienced of the group. Leif was excellent - carefully reviewing information pre-dive, checking in on me during the dive and essentially took great care of me throughout He was personable, funny, interesting and professional. I highly recommend these guys and would go back again if I was in the area.

Thank you very much for this wonderful feedback, we really appreciate you taking the time to upload this review. We strive to offer a stress free, comfortable experience even if the logistics are not always that straight forward. We are glad that you enjoyed the diving at the Ao Nang Bay Islands which are sometimes overlooked by divers in the area even though they are abundant in marine life and the coral reefs are indeed very healthy. We look forward to you joining us again on one of trips the next time you are in the area. Happy Bubbles for now!
