I did my Divemaster training with Real Divers in February and March 2021. The team was knowledgeable, friendly, and flexible to accommodate my work schedule around the diving and skills development. The skills that I gained under their teaching I feel are top notch and have made me a better diver. Neil, James, Pete and the crew were all easy-going, professional, and made the experience of diving in Pattaya what will be a life-long memory for me.

Hi Joe, Thanks for the really nice review about your Padi Divemaster course. The whole team enjoyed having you with us on the boat in the swimming pool and having a few cold ones in our local watering hole lol. You did a great job and the students and divers really enjoyed diving with you and helping them on their diving course. You are always welcome at Real Divers and we all hope to see you again for more diving adventures and fun in Pattaya City. Dive safe Team Real Divers.

Had a wonderful dive trip today. I have dived with them many times and it has always been enjoyable. Today saw turtles, stingrays, box fish, porcupine puffer fish, Moorish Idols, and Moray eel to name just a few. Weather and visibility was great. Happy to dive with a great team.

booked 2 days fun diving with real Divers for 10th and 11th December. An excellent choice , Neil and his team were very laid back and extremely professional., with a major emphasis on dive safety. Sensible meeting time of 9:00am and after 3 dives returned to shore at 2:30pm leaving plenty of time to discover other entertainment options in Pattaya. Real Divers sennd out a monthly fact sheet/update re dive trips , if your interested in Diving contact them and subscribe to their monthly factsheet. I recommend Real Divers to anyone interested in diving in the Pattaya area, I will be returning for sure.

Hi Mark, Thanks for the great review about your 2 days diving. The team really enjoyed diving with you and chilling out on the boat as well. The times we start and return are very popular with our local divers and as you said the rest of the day to explore Pattaya City. We have a 100 % safety record at RD and aim to keep that going. The monthly update is a great way to keep all our divers updated and to keep in contact with everyone. The Team wishes you Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year. Dive Safe Team Real Divers.

We dived today with Neil and James from real divers and had the best time. We were a pretty diversified group with first timers as well as certified divers but it really wasn't a problem as the program was personalized to fit exactly our different needs. Professional, safe (which isn't always a given in thailand) and most of all incredibly nice. Last but definitely not least, real divers operates a smaller speedboat. It cuts by half the time spent to get to your diving spot(s). This way you get more time to enjoy your dives or can organize to get back early if youre diving over the weekend and need to be back in bangkok on Sunday night for example. I've got nothing but good things to say, I would a 100% recommand.
