Went on dives today. Have done a couple dives in the past, but not certified. Went into the office yesterday, where I filled out some paperwork and had all my questions answered. Today, everything was advertised - a couple dives in two different locations, with lunch. Instructors were great.

As a first time diver, these guys provided an excellent end-to-end experience. They picked me up on time from the hotel and wasted little time in getting the other divers and myself to water. Once we were in the dive boat, which was in excellent condition and has been refurbished, Ian, my instructor, did a great job preparing us for... More

We went diving with two newbies who were quite fearful but the our DM Gordon was fantastic in calming their fears and coaxing them into the water. In the water visibility was good about 10m. The DM was super careful and conscientious. The qualities you want in a DM. I watched him inspect carefully all the equipment before each dive.... More

The dive shop is located just 200m from Pattaya pier, so no need for a long drive to the boat. The boat itself is about 60' and cruises at a comfortable speed so you are at the dive sites within 30 minutes, there is a lot of space on board so you don't end up tripping over other peoples gear...

Now for my reply to your bewildering review: Firstly I would like to point out that I (the owner) picked you up in our truck, as we advised, it’s not a Rolls Royce. You and your two kids sat inside the car, you sat in the passenger’s seat and your two kids on the back seat. So, with that in... More
