Avoid the crowds; dive and snorkel in very small groups with a focus on great personal service, safety and fun. Departing from the beach each morning at 9am, our two speedboats carry a maximum of 10 divers each to some of the best dive sites in Thailand. PADI courses available in several languages, and with typical group sizes of just 2 or 3 divers with each divemaster or instructor (max 4), diving is more than just a job for us. Enjoy our PADI 5-Star service and let some of the most experienced, friendly and professional dive instructors on Koh Lanta take care of you while you just sit back, dive and relax...

I did my PADI open water course with Dive and Relax and could not have been happier with the whole experience.. They were quick to respond to all my questions before I booked with them and after booking prompted me to start my online course. Once in Ko Lanta they were wonderful, pick ups were always on time and our... More

This is the 2nd time I have visited them for diving, and all their staffs are english-educated, which makes it easier to communicate. They mostly owned speedboats, thus making the traveling time to the dive sites much faster. Fruits and beverages are provided on boat, and for lunch in between dives, they cater mostly like "buffet" style, where it was... More

Went on a snorkelling trip and, rather than taking masses of tourists out by the ship load, Dive & Relax do small groups of about 8 people by speedboat. This means the experience is much more personal and reefs don't get overcrowded. Friendly and well-informed instructors made us feel safe at all times, and the whole operation was handled very...

We visited last year (Feb 2015) and finally became open water certified. I have nothing but great things to say about our experience then too, but will focus on this trip. Since last year we were fortunate enough to dive various places in Europe, primarily in the Mediterranean. It's obviously comparing two different experiences in regards to dive locations, but...

My experience with Dive and Relax from the beginning to the end has been amazing. They have patiently answered to all my quires. My friend and i decided to go snorkeling on one of the days and then do the discover scuba diving course on the other day. Both the courses turned our pretty reasonable. They even arrange a pick...

Had an excellent time earning our PADI licenses at this fab little dive shop. Adam was a fantastic instructor and kept me calm in situations where it would be easy to panic. I now feel confident under the water and will continue diving, because the experience was so good. All of the staff were fantastic: special shout out to Oh... More

If someone or somebody deserves it, I think one's review should be: Excellent. I think they are, that's why I did it. We booked for two weeks at the Lanta Castaway Resort for a two weeks diving holiday. Dive & Relax has the office at the same property. We were not sure of going all our dives with them, because...

Was diving recently in Koh Lanta with Dive and Relax on a two day course. Cannot recommend this company enough. Friendly, professional and the small dive groups mean a high level of care and attention is given to each diver. I had issues equalizing (head cold) on day one and my dive master was extremely patient and helpful getting me... More

Friendly, professional staff. Bad weather caused the first day to be canceled (for safety), but the second day diving was spectacular at Ko Haa. Now I've finally seen my first seahorse in the wild! Lunch on the speedboat was delicious, and portions were generous. I'd happily dive with this group again.
