Scuba Dawgs is a professional dive operation with good staff and equipment and if you are diving in Pattaya, I would recommend going with them. I was unfortunate with my time of diving - the visibility was very poor on the wreck dive and as I was feeling sick from prior dehydration sickness, I had to skip the second dive.

My girlfriend and I, did two try dives with Scuba Dawgs. We were pretty apprehensive before hand but Shaun is a great instructor who put us at ease immediately. The equipment was brand new and the lunch served on board the boat was excellent. Shaun's assistant even took underwater photos and videos for free. All in all we had a... More

I recently stayed at a resort in Bangsaray called 4 Palm and the owner Shaun is a friend of a friend and i have dived with him before at a previous divecentre he owned so it seemed logical to dive with him again. We left the resort at 9am and travelled down to the quant village of Samaesan which took... More

I did a three dive day trip with Shaun and absolutely loved it, I felt like family. To begin with he picked me up when I first arrived in Pattaya, then I got all my gear fitted and Shaun was helpful with advice and some great gear. He also invited me to join his family and friends for dinner. The... More

How would you describe a service with service provider who: - deals with you from the beginning as a trustful friend. - agrees with you on amount of payment, where you feel like (and you tell him) that he deserves more. - gives you the freedom to dive "your way", yet still making sure you'll make it alive. - gets...

I have just completed my PADI open water certification and deep sea dive to 30 metres under the patient and expert tutelage of Shaun. I received first class one to one tuition over 5 dives around Ko Larn and Ko Samae San. I did investigate other dive packages in the area but they did not offer that personal touch. He... More

I want to say in simple words. Diving is dangerous for the beginners, comfort under the water is important, keep calm and follow the instructions of Shaun. Definitely that will be a amazing experience. Scuba is very not that dangerous when masters like shaun is beside us. He cares the comfort of the diver.

Out of the five of us, 2 of us do not know how to scuba dive and therefore we opted for snorkeling instead. Shuan was able to incorporate both activities.
