From start to finish, Nick was incredibly friendly, knowledgable and professional. Our confidence with scuba grew from 0 to 100 with his help and expertise. Before we even arrived in Thailand, Nick kept in contract regularly to ensure the courses we selected were right for us. He shared so much information and advice for travelling to Thailand during COVID and the sandbox project - as well as places to go and what to do when we arrived. Also, unlike the stereotypical watching hours of videos for your diving knowledge, we completed all of our theory online before we arrived. My partner was completing his Open water, and myself - advanced Open water. Nick tailored both courses so they fit side by side and we completed them in tandem (for each skill and level required). The first day of the course, Nick collected us from our hotel (which was miles away!) and took us on a tour of the island, while sharing many a diving story and getting to know us. After this, we completed all the necessary paperwork and admin bits at his beautiful scuba school. We were offered drinks and snacks, and it was all very welcoming. What I really liked about this was that the admin side of things was to a minimum. Because we had already completed all of our theory at home before we arrived in Thailand, it was time to get hands on. We were fitted for kit, and had our first skills based day training in Nicks pool. This was a fantastic day as Nick showed us how to perfect diving before going into the open water. The following days after, Nick arranged for transport to collect us from our hotel and take us to the boat to start diving! We completed 6 amazing dives in total, and I can honestly say we felt so at ease with Nick (and Patrick, his Dive Master). We seen many beautiful fish and animals, superb ship wrecks, as well as experiencing deep diving, navigation diving and skill based diving. We would honestly recommend Scuba Nicks to everyone, and we are intending to come back next year to do more educational training and fun dives with him. If you want a diving instructor with a sheer passion for diving, who is very attentive and knowledgable - then Nick is the instructor for you. 5 stars ⭐️

I wanted to try scuba diving before I thinking about full certification and chose Scuba Nics. I have been blown away by the entire experience from when we first met and the time taken to hear my fears and then provide support and training to overcome them. I felt relaxed throughout dive and while the viz wasn’t the best, we still saw lots of beautiful fish and corals. I can only imagine the amazing dive experiences you would get from this company as they are so knowledgeable about the area. A big thank to them.

Thanks to scuba nicks and my instructor Victoria I now have my open water and 8 dives under my belt !! I downloaded the my ssi app which is fantastic by the way ! Victoria is very professional kept me relaxed and comfortable the whole way threw any questions where answered and explained fully ! I’m going under water with a TANK of air for 30/50 min and not coming up I had a few questions to ask as I’m sure anyone would but I was kept calm and comfortable with the knowledge she give me and you can see she has just from the respect she is given on the boats from other divers and boat staff made me realise I was in very safe hands I’m 45 and I have found muscles I didn’t know I had only regret is I didn’t do this 20 years ago or even 7 when I come to Thailand this has truly changed my life I can’t thank scuba nicks enough and obviously Victoria !

Nick is the best scuba diving teacher. He guides and leads with patient. I don't like swimming at all but Nick makes diving feels so comfortable and safe. You will get precise and necessary knowledge from Nick. It's a great begining and I'll do advance course with him, too. Love him and his team soooo much. What an energy! Very recommend!
