Had a great day with 2 dives aided by our excellent instructor David. My wife and I were a little apprehensive having not dived for a few years, but with Davids friendly advice and professional tuition we were diving again in no time at all. All in all an excellent professional and friendly service, we will definitely be returning. R.... More

My 12yo daughter and I went on a snorkeling day trip to Rachai Yai island, with David as our host, and had a marvellous time. It was just the two of us with Dave so we had a very personalised tour. David and Jon are the owners of Yellow Submarine and personally conduct of all their tours and dives. This... More

We met Jon and David on Kho Phi Phi, and visited them in Chalong after being invited to do some diving with them. These guys really care about you learning how to become a better diver, and not just about getting the certificate and you spending your money on them. Next to that, most of the time they'll be your... More

Did my PADI advanced open water diver course. They have top notch equipment and by far the best way to get to the diving scene (the speed boat will take you there in 30 min instead of 2 hours). Next to that, the instructors (Jon and David) are very capable and clearly love their jobs. Which makes sure you learn... More

Thank you Stefan, it was alot of fun looking after you and Frans, we hope our personal service is different from the norm as we like to make sure our customers enjoy themselves on top of the water not just under it!
