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...

For our prospective holiday in December 2016 our resort recommended Dive & Relax for a boat trip and swim for my wife and snorkelling for me. We are a fit and active couple in our early 70's with no serious medical impairments. Living in Malaysia we use small boats frequently and I have my own snorkelling equipment. On their on-line...

Robert, I'd like to share our take on this with the rest of the world: 1) When we first received your enquiry about snorkeling you first wanted to know about trips for people 'of our vintage' and I responded by saying that I was unsure what you meant by this and could you please add more information. You responded with... More

I completed my PADI Open Water cert with Dive and Relax 2 weeks ago and coming from the US, I gotta say I was a bit concerned with level of standards and condition of equipment and even language barrier. I was impressed with the boats, the entire team, the high standards, the equipment and with my instructor Adam from the... More

My husband and I did the Discover SCUBA diving course and we have nothing but praise for the staff, instructors and the whole company! If we could give more than 5 stars we would certainly would do so. We started the paperwork a day or so before the actual experience and it only took about 30 minutes. The morning of... More

We booked the trip to Hin Muang / Hin Daeng and went there on a speedboat, which is quite convenient as much faster than big boats. The coral in Hin Muang is beautiful with its purple colours. The second dive on Hin Daeng was also great as we came face to face with a 3-4-meter long whale shark who swam... More

Absolutely wonderful we enjoyed doing our open water and my fiancé did his advanced. Nin was our instructor and she was so patient and made us feel really comfortable! She let me take my time and made me feel confident in the water as this was my first diving experience! They are all super professional though as we did plenty... More

After researching scuba and snorkel trips during our Koh Lanta stay, Dive and Relax consistently came out top in the reviews and we can absolutely vouch for that after a superb scuba and snorkel trip with the team who were really warm and friendly and totally progressional, including the booking process with the lovely team in the office. My husband... More

I recently took the PADI OWD course here. I can't recommend Dive and Relax highly enough. I did the theory online for the course. The correspondence from booking the course and sorting out local accommodation was perfect. Instructions on what I needed to do and bring were spot on. On arriving the team there were fantastic. I was the only... More

I had the most enjoyable day of my holiday whilst on a snorkelling day trip to Koh Haa with Dive and Relax. Their speed boats get you to dive sites faster than most other tours and their close-knit group of colleagues make for a really great atmosphere and friendly environment. Having tried scuba diving the previous week with another company... More

The fact that they operate speed boots alone is worth going with Dive and Relax. You'll arrive earlier at the dive sites, in small groups and faster back to enjoy a drink at the beach. Great service, good equipment. Lunch is good, plenty of drinks onboard. Good experience.

Dive and relax came highly recommended and I'm so glad we chose to go with them. It was my first time snorkelling and we had Raoul with our group, he was great, really knowledgeable and experienced. They only take small groups out and have a lot of staff around so you feel really safe. You go by a small speed... More
