I took a course here and did my dives with an amazing instructor. Of you're going to dive here you should request Luke R!! He is from a shop (Seafari) that works with Pattaya Dive Center. Within the first day of diving I felt like I had gained some great skills to the point that now I feel completely comfortable... More

Tomasz is the owner was super in supporting me in rough waters. First time doing deep open water dives in rough waters. I really had a great time spending three days with Kent , who completed his Master Diver Certification. The food was great, one of the better dive shops ever! See you all soon.

PDC and its sibling shop, Seafari, have bought a new dive boat since my last visit -- it's a speedboat with stern-drive engines that meets you at the beach between the two shops. They can take you out further, now, to less-spoiled dive sites, such as the HTMS Khram, and they can also do a better job with disparate groups... More

I took my PADI Open Water Course certification with Pattaya Dive Centre. I had Arnold as my instructor and he is super professional and good at explaining the exercises and showing how to do them correctly so I felt safe when doing them under water. I had three very fun days and in general, all staff were happy, competent, helpful... More

We booked a two dive trip with Pattaya Dive Centre. This was my first dive so I didn’t know what to expect. We were assured by the company that new divers were more than welcome and would be given first class instructions by professional divers. Once on the boat I realized that this would not be the case. During the... More

This is my 3rd time at Pattaya Dive Centre. From first walking through the shop door, I have always been made very welcome. Shop staff are extremely friendly and speak good English. Instructors are friendly and professional and genuinely want to help. A big thanks has to go out to Nathan for helping me through my Advanced Open Water course.... More

After diving in several locations in Thailand I was very impressed by the customer service of PDC. Top of the line gear, local expertise, and afew laughs along the way. My dive on the Hardeep was incredible! I asked to be challenged and that I was. Moderate current, deep technical dive, exactly what I was looking for. After pulling down... More
