Our cruise had an overnight stay in Phuket, we were very lucky to manage to get a spot last minute with Love Diving Phuket, Dive Instructor Court is very professional, we told him our teen daughters only just got their license a week ago and he was very patient and making sure they were safe at all time, revised a few things before the first dive of the day, my husband and the girls had a fantastic time diving in Racha Noi and Racha Yai. We highly recommend Love Diving and Dive Instructor Court to anyone who wants to go diving in Phuket. The dive boat they arranged to have us on on the day was a great one as well, little drama at the end due to shuttle bus broke down and we had to make it back to our cruise, but they are very efficient ann’s got one of their staff to take us back with his car.

Can’t wait to come back in the near future and try other dive site with Court.

Came to Phuket having never tried diving but wanting to give it a go, ended up diving regularly for the last 2 months and doing 9 certifications with Love Diving.

Love Diving certainly live up to their name, they have great team of instructors who are extremely professional, diligent, and clearly passionate about what they do. The business owners are helpful, flexible, and went above and beyond what I expected.

I have learnt so much and enjoyed every step of the way as I have built new skills and developed my confidence as a diver. I would wholeheartedly recommend Love Diving to anyone who wants to dive at any level of experience. I can’t wait to return and dive more with them in the future!

Loved scuba diving with Love Diving!

Vincent is an amazing and very knowledgeable instructor. He suggested the best days for us to go diving, visibility wise, based on the current and tide tables! We did our nitrox certification with him (we are AOW certified), which was also great. He is very good at finding the more rarely seen marine life underwater. He also takes photos and shares them with you after the dives!

There was a large selection of scuba equipment, so we directly tried it on and it was set aside for us to go diving a couple days later. It was in very good condition. The prices were also the best we found on the island.

Regarding the boat: the way it works on Phuket, there is 1-2 large boats going to each of the three main diving areas (cruiser wreck/anemone point, racha islands, and phi phi islands). All the dive shops book space on one of the boats, depending on which dive site you want to go to. We were a bit apprehensive about diving with so many other divers (we were ~40 on the boat), but the organization was perfect. There was a buffet lunch after the first dive and snacks after the second, with so many varieties! Also coffee, tea and water, as well as seasickness medication if you need it. The boat is large, modern, and has both seating areas below and above on deck, and lounging areas (either loungers or big bean bags, depending on the boat).

The dive shop also organized our ferry tickets to the Phi Phi islands (we stayed for several days) and return taxi to the airport.

Can not recommend Love Diving highly enough!!

After evaluating top 5 diving Centers in Phuket, I finalised lovedivingphuket. The experience right from enquiry to booking was very smooth. The team is extremely friendly and they did help me to decide. The best part of the experience was our instructor EDO. He’s easily the best in town. He’s not only very experienced diver and instructor, but also very warm, helpful and friendly person. We were the first time divers and he spent lot of time with us to make us comfortable about diving. Even between the dives he shared lot of feedback and tricks about diving for the next one. Both my kids loved and thoroughly enjoyed diving with him. A shout to Daren and Vincent who were part of lovediving team. Strongly recommend #lovedivinghuket over all other top rated ones in Phuket.

After talking with a few diving schools, decided to go with Love Diving Phuket for open water diving course. This choice was based on professional and friendly suggestions given by Edo that helped me prepare well with expectations during the course. Edo also gave me the first day orientation for the course and he made it extremely easy to grasp the concepts while making it fun. Rest of the course was with Daniel who is very professional with his approach and keeps safety as the first priority. His instructions were very clear and logical. Had great time with both Edo and Dan in not just learning about the diving but also to enjoy exploring stunning life under water. With their careful attention to details, I could observe great progress throughout the course. Completed a total of 6 dives in open water spanned across 2 days. These days would remain memorable for the rest of my life and would highly recommend Love Diving, because it is true to its name!

Awesome dive center in the heart of Patong Beach, as solo traveller they made everything easy for you from booking to trip transfer and the dives. I did the best 3 dives with Edo as instructor so I decide to get my PADI advanced certification just 2 days that is the best thing.

I did total of 9 amazing dives and learned so much. Edo absolutely the best instructor make me feel safe and same time with fun and enjoyable.

I strongly recommend this Dive center to anyone who plan to dive in Phuket.

Summary: It is worth the price and the time. It was one of the best experinces i ever had. You pay for a good instructor, good equipment and the trips to amazing locations.

I spontaneously decided to do the open water license and it was one of the best experiences i ever had. I got the PADI App for my phone and could start right away. The first dive was at a beach. We talked about the skills and the theory of diving. First he showed me the skill in the water and i had to repeat it. We did every skill multiple times and he helped me with tips and tricks. To be honest, i was quite nervous at first, but he really gave me confidence and showed me everything that i have to know to be a good diver.
I could really enjoy the next days and dives, because the dives were a mix between learning and repeating skills with time to enjoy the beautiful dive spots.
I had the wish that i would like to see sharks, so he showed me some Black tip sharks and a leopard shark. During my dives he showed me multiple fish, snails and other animals. He really know the diving spots and where different and rare animals are.
After these 3 amazing days i feel prepared for my next diving trips and i would really recommend it to everyone.

In addition, Vincent also took photos of me and the diving tour. They are not part of the course, but the are worth the extra price.

I have already booked another trip with 3 dives with Love Diving Phuket.

I got my open water certification at Love Diving back in December 2019. Mike was my instructor and he was able to slot me in for an open spot the night before. He was very friendly, had a good sense of humor, and was clearly passionate about diving.

However, as an instructor, I felt that he fell short in terms of his experience and professionalism. I first became concerned on the first day when he forgot to bring a mask and a vest for one the students and had to borrow from the hotel staff. On our second day, he wasn’t familiar with the dive compass and asked another instructor how to use it, commenting “I don’t know how this works.” Finally, on our last dive, he spent a good amount time trying to take a picture of a fish while holding onto a rock. I felt that this was particularly dangerous as the drift was strong and the group was struggling to stay in place. We expended a lot of energy and one of the students went down to 50 bar. Mike hadn’t checked in on our air supply in a while so we actually ended up cutting our dive short.

He was also a bit pushy on getting a tip. Every single day he would (not so) subtly remind our group how he lived off tips. The comments included: “if you like me, you can tip me,” “we don’t make very much so I’ll appreciate any tips,” or “if you buy the photos from the course, that can be my tip.” We tipped him for all 3 days, and were already planning to do so even before going on the dives. However, it was a little off-putting to to be reminded to tip multiple times throughout the course. My husband has done over 50 dives and said this was the first time an instructor commented so often about tips.

Overall, Mike was very easygoing and funny. I think he would be a fun person to dive with if you’re already certified and experienced as he’ll make every effort to point out cool things and keep things lighthearted. However, if you’re inexperienced, I would recommend an instructor who’s a bit more cognizant of his students and isn’t as forgetful.

It was from the start meticulously executed diving experience by "Love Diving" team, from the morning hotel pick up to the late afternoon return. Special thanks to Edo who drew attention to great diving detail before the event and given me diving tips before it actually took the place. This is of utmost important for diving safety in order to avoid and prevent dangerous scenarios under the water that may always happen to anyone . And for that reason i greatly appreciate the advises given to me by him and attentive Vincent that may actually saved my live . As a result of that i will always go back to this company and will advise everyone to do so as "Love Diving" exercise The Excellent Business Practice.

Had a great day diving with Edo from Love Diving Phuket. From booking to diving, we were made to feel at ease and enjoy ourselves. Edo made our day special, especially for my inexperienced friend. The dive site at Racha Yai had great visibility on a day that we thought was going to be ruined by the weather. However, Edo and his team assured us that we would not be disappointed at the dive site. They weren't wrong. The boat provided to transport us to the dive site was also very good. The crew were attentive and helpful. We were provided with food and drinks all day which was prepared freshly by the crew. I can highly recommend Love Diving Phuket for a great and fun day of diving. 🙂
