Blue View is, and always will be, the reason I visit the phi phi islands so often! They have managed to master the entire diving experience, from the second you step into the shop, to the extremely disappointing moment you have to say your farewells!
As an experienced dive master I’m always looking for professional shops and great places to explore and these guys offer the full package. The staff are all friendly, you can tell they all have such raw passion for the ocean and making sure everyone that goes through their doors has the best time possible.
The shop is clean, perfectly situated away from the busy strip in town and has the most breathtaking view! (Watching the sunset from the shop is one of my favourite things I’ve ever seen!)
The team at blue view tirelessly work towards helping the environment and doing what they can to protect the ocean, which to me is incredibly important and a massive breath of fresh air to see young people making such an effort to recycle/help save the planet! Nat is pretty much the anti-plastic superwoman of the seven seas!
Diving with blue view is always special. They use long tail boats which means it’s small intimate groups of people, rather than huge cluttered groups where you just feel like a number. I always feel a bit more looked after as a result and there aren’t hoards of fins and bubbles in your face when you’re trying to throw some Shaka’s at the local turtles 🤙🏼.
Forget going out to the restaurants and bars for lunch in phi phi - just book a dive with blue view and you’ll get your money’s worth with the food alone!! I almost look forward to the Panang Curry with egg more than I do the diving!
Nothing bad to say about this wonderful shop, apart from maybe that you’ll leave with a sore tummy from laughing so hard at Caroline’s jokes! They’re SO bad, that they’re good! She really is the life and soul of the shop and manages to breathe positive energy and an unparalleled high standard every day.
With the perfect balance of professionalism and fun, you’d be absolutely crazy to choose any other shop on phi phi to dive with!
