We were riding around looking for dive centers and this one stood out from the rest. Impressive front but don't let that decieve you. We went in and interupted the receptionist from a video call. She eventually ended the call but really wasn't happy about it. We are all certified divers and wanted to know about the local sites. The receptionist hadn't got a clue so called in a guy called Phil. Phil was knowledgeable and we booked on for the next day. We arrived at the dive shop on time and waited. Waited on our own. We were the only ones there. The shop was closed. Time passed and then Phil came out with our equipment. A van came to pick us up and took us to the boat. Basically the dive shop don't have their own boat, and instead we were put on a boat with everyother dive center in phuket. It was disgustingly busy and horribly overcrowded. Not what we expected. The diving was OK but the experience wasn't. At the end of the day, we were taken back to the dive shop and Phil didn't want to know us. He was too busy drinking beer with his friends. Don't waste your money and dive elsewhere!

This PADI diving centre is brilliant. I took part in the Open Water Diver course and I had such an amazing time. Miller, my instructor, was calm and very professional. He knew the dive sites really well. I enjoyed my time diving so much that I am going to take part in the Advanced Open Water Diver course! Cannot recommend the company enough.

Just completed my PADI open water training wirh CW. Firstly. I have travelled a lot and enjoyed many great experiences. The first thing I think of is safety. Doing an open water diving course you must have confidence in the experience and safety of the dive shop. The moment I walked into the CW I felt at ease. Phil the owner is a strait down the line character who's knowledge and experience of diving and diving sites through out Phuket is amazing. My instructed for the two days a laid back Sweedish guy called Andre. No fancy corporate logos stuck to his tee shirt, just a pair of board shorts and a friendly personality. I was apprehensive on doing the course but Andrea got me over the line and I can't wait to get "wet again"! The boats Phil chooses for the two day dives are top notch from the boat skipper to the cook, the boat boys and the hospitality aboard is fantastic. On dry land you can go back pool side to CW and enjoy thier bar for a few drinks as well as light snacks made by Phil's lovely and welcoming wife. Can't say any more but thanks so much Crystal Waves!!!

Best dive centre in Phuket. Our instructor Andre made the day a blast and while being safe and friendly, allowed us to dive with greater autonomy as the day progressed. We saw so many incredible things underwater and thoroughly enjoyed the food that awaited as soon as we got back onto the boat after each dive.

I love diving with these guys - their instructors are always really friendly, safe and knowledgeable and diving with them has always been so easy to organise. Their equipment is in great condition and they join safe, well-run boats. I've never been on a dive with them that's felt unsafe or overcrowded - thoroughly recommend them! Thanks for some great diving!
