A lot of factors impact your overall impression, some of which are beyond the control of management, so I have left writing my review for a few weeks. Organising my trip was very straight-forward and I found the admin staff very helpful; emails were answered promptly and efficiently. On arrival you get a horrid refillable plastic water container/pouch - I... More

As with other reviews we had the same issues when trying to arrange the bookings. Whilst the front desk/booking staff were helpful, they were more focused on locking you into a dive and... More

We were a group of 10 that did a kayak trip and then had the guide take us around town for some shopping before we boarded our live aboard dive boat. We are underwater photographers who each had at least 2-3 large travel bags. They picked us up from our hotel and stored our luggage in their locker area while... More

Sams Tours was the most professionally managed and also busiest land based dive center that we've ever visited. Lots of boats going everywhere everyday. Yet they managed to get it all together perfectly. Most of the dive sites are very well researched. These guys, they really know what they are doing. They know when the shark is feeding, etc. My...

We did two days of diving with Sams and had a great experience. The staff was fantastic, and really made an effort to hit the spots you want to see (locations are determined on the day of based on conditions). We did the nitrox certification as well, which only required a little bit of reading and a test. The only... More

Did a two day dive with Sam's Tour and Lulu was our teacher/guide. She was so friendly, professional and patient. Highly recommend Sam's Tour well as they have their own dock, equipment, boats, drivers, cars, classrooms, bar, shop etc. it's very professionally run and logistics are coordinated perfectly. Teachers come from all over the world and are passionate and experienced... More
