In October 2019, I participated in a two-day diving course. The programme is the first day was training in the swimming pool, and then going to sea to practice diving. But I was deceived. In fact, I went to sea for diving on the first day. I almost died as Chinese and foreign coaches ignored my abilities. I strongly asked not to dive and then went to the private hospital for treatment. The shop staff quibble that the 2nd day training fee was unable to refund. The staff asked me to join their course for free next time. The Pattaya Dive Centre was so bad.

I just spent the most amazing 5 days with the team at Pattaya Dive Centre. Conquering my fear of the world beneath the water was my goal and they definitely helped me accomplish that. I was in contact with Kim, the store manager, several times leading up to my trip. She assisted me with getting everything lined up which included scheduling my dives and arranging for daily pick up/drop off at my hotel. She put me at total ease knowing all the he details were taken care of. The first 3 days of my trip were spent with Dan the Man! He’s the most patient and reassuring instructor I’ve ever come across. He works hard to establish trust from the very beginning. Once you embrace that trust and know that you’re in good hands you’re able to relax and enjoy the adventure. The next two days I spent with Arnold. Now Arnold is the instructor that teaches the other instructors. Talk about a wealth of knowledge! You can put all your confidence in him and rest assured that your are going to experience clear and accurate training. Both of them keep safety at the forefront throughout every dive, but they also remind you that it’s also about having fun. They take torches with them and were great about pointing out all the interesting sights there were to see. And Dan takes incredible photos and video! Absolutely breathtaking! At the end of my 5 days thanks to these two amazing men I left with my open water and advanced certifications. If you’re on the fence about giving scuba a try, don’t hesitate! Just do it .. with Dan and Arnold at Pattaya Dive Centre. Thank you guys!! Can’t wait to see you again real soon!

6 days of boat diving around local islands & wrecks. Great team. Happy experience. Well looked after from hotel pick-up to end of day drop off. Local boat crew were perfect, including lunch. My personal & local dive leader (Gaw) was amazing. Best ever guide. 👌🙏 Thanks to all for a great experience 👌 Best wishes Dave 😎

I went down to the Pattaya Dive Centre and reserved my space for a two tank boat dive the following day. Pricing was very fair at 3000THB for the full package including transportation to the dock, an excellent lunch, and complete rental gear. My instructor for the day was Dan Johnson and he was an excellent guide. Speaks Thai, English, and Dutch. He took excellent pictures and videos for me for a small fee. I would definitely recommend this company and instructor to any diver beginner or otherwise.
