Pretty disappointed in this scuba/snorkeling boat trip. Seemed more geared to experienced divers getting higher certifications rather than first time divers. Sat in a very crowded boat...took only a few minutes instructions on scuba diving from one of the instructors....suited up for the 15 minute swim out swim in. Pretty boring. Served lunch but reminded that with many many people... More

We went for scuba diving for the first time and our instructor was Anne. She is an excellent mentor and diver she ensured that we enjoy the dive to the fullest. Me and my husband dived for the first time and she ensured that we know all the rules below the sea and was always beside us. Each and everyone... More

This was my first time snorkelling in Pattaya. The staff in the shop were excellent with great local knowledge. David the owner sorted out all my requirements for a fabulous day snorkelling with a dive instructor. Great day, excellent knowledge of local area. Well done to all who work at Pattaya Dive Centre

The open water dives were assessed by Anne (Saengnapha Noinart) who was very instructive and patient. I could not recommend her highly enough. All the people at the Pattaya Dive Centre were great.

Came to the Pattaya Dive Centre to further my skills in becoming an Advanced Open Water diver. Did my research on which dive company to go with and that was easy - these are the pros in training/instructors, dives, transportation (car service and dive boat), gear and management (David). Top notch across the board. Even the food on board between... More

Arnold Yap is an excellent scuba trainer.. A tough task master and very methodical .. And the diving trip to Samae San is out of the world.. Very peaceful place with good visibility and nice corals and aquatic life unlike the other crowded places around pattaya !
