My husband and I love diving but, since having kids, we haven’t felt able to go. We thought this year would be a great time to introduce them both with a try dive session. If you want a modern, crowded jet boat this company is not for you. If you want focussed, individual attention with great diving equipment, I can’t rate them highly enough. We set out with another couple and two divemasters on a lovely, spacious Thai boat. Dirk took the other couple off for a proper dive whilst Gert dedicated himself to our two boys, making every effort to ensure they were comfortable in the water. Whilst his focus was on the kids, he also kept an eye on my husband and I as we kitted up since we openly admitted to being rusty. Once in the water, he patiently ran through all the safety training first before we went off at which point held onto both boys throughout the dives. It was a great experience and I can’t rate Gert highly enough. I should also add that lunch (red chicken curry and rice) was delicious and drinks were plentiful

Staff rather uninterested in helping and being there for the divers, sort of unfriendly attitude. After having taken Open Water Diver certificate a few days before with another diving school on Koh Samui, there was a huge gap noticeable in terms of professionalism, service mindset and getting the feeling of safety first

When you walk up to Gert's office/shack from the beach you can't help thinking that it should been a movie. One of the most layback and friendly guy you can ever meet, a honest and straight talking German. At pre dive meeting Gert turns into a professional and detail observing guide who unlike most guides keeps a constant eye on his group while he is pointing to all the highlights of the dive. He is constantly checking the safety of all divers and is the most honest dive guide I have swum with. I cannot recommend him highly enough

Passed my OWD together with Gert in a 1on1. He introduced me in getting familiar with diving. I always felt save and comfortable with him under and over water. Gert has perfect knowledge about the dive spots (was at Sail Rock and Koh Ma). So he could show me all kinds of fishes which were to be expected even if other divers missed them ;) Boat and food was absolutely fine. thank you for the good time with you.
