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!

Had a fantastic afternoon diving with Ryan. He was great chat between dives but paid special attention to safety and making sure we saw several interesting things over the two dives. Multiple sea turtles, huge lobsters, and even a cuttlefish putting on a great color changing show. Thanks for a great trip!

I had a fantastic diving experience in Phi Phi thanks to Beth and Tae. They really make the difference between having a nice dive trip and having a fantastic one. They are passionate, knowledgeable, extremely careful with safety and very involved in marine conservation. They love their dive sites and this love is contagious! They really adapt to your pace and your level. The diving gear was in excellent condition.
Even though it was not my initial plan, I decided to take my Advanced Open Water Course with them as Beth inspired me confidence. Before and during my trip, Beth was always very responsive and accommodated all my requests.
Last but not least, Beth took great pictures and videos during our dives and shared them with me for free.
I highly recommend Blue View Divers for a memorable and tailored diving experience.

I visited Koh Phi Phi to dive for a 5 week period in Nov - Dec 2021 to celebrate my retirement. I had a choice of many dive centers, but selected BVD for being smaller, more eco centered and the staff being extremely accommodating and friendly right from the beginning. I was not disappointed.
I appreciated their approach to safety, dive and Covid protocols and being extremely helpful all around even outside of diving, such as travelling, where to eat and other helpful local information.
Most of the dives were in small groups off a long-tail which meant that we could go closer into smaller areas where the bigger boats cannot go. I did about 35 dives on that trip and went back in February 2022 for some more. It was that good. I became part of the BVD family.
I can highly recommend Blue View Divers for a relaxed, safe and friendly dive opportunity on Koh Phi Phi.

Love this dive shop for a laid-back vibe! All dives are organised in small groups, so the experience feels very private and home-like (exactly what I’m looking for from diving).
I did dive with Blue View Divers last year, absolutely loved it, so decided to come back this year to do my Advanced PADI course.
Everything was great! My instructor Becca was very patient making sure I understand all the exercises and improve my skills, I definitely got more confident as a diver after completing the course. On the second day I dived with Caroline, the ship wreck dive was awesome! Caroline did an amazing job choosing the best time of the day to avoid crowds and strong current. As a result - only 3 of us (including instructor) got the most relaxing dive with 20m visibility and 0 current. Schools of fish everywhere, we could barely see the wreck ☺️
And as always a yummy lunch with Thai curry and fresh fruits in the most beautiful Phi Le lagoon.
Highly recommend if you are in Phi Phi!
And I will be back for sure 🤙

Since I haven't been diving for a long time I wanted to do a refresher course at Blue View Divers. Johanna from the diving school recommended to me to do a full review including a pool dive in the morning to go over all the basics again. And it was the best recommendation ever. My instructor Becca was amazing. She was very friendly, knowledgable and I felt very safe with her all the time. So she got all of us (3 students in total) up to speed very quickly. The dive sites we visited in the afternoon were amazing as well. We were able to see a lot of fantastic underwater wildlife e.g. turtles, sharks and even a ray. To me, the whole experience at blue view divers felt very personal, since they only take small groups on the longtail boats and even being at the dive center felt much like hanging out with a great group of friends. Since my experience was so great I went on two additional fun dives the day after. Thanks so much to all of you at blue view divers and to everyone else reading this - I can strongly recommend this dive center :)

Started off with Caroline on all the scuba arrangements :) & she’s been superb with help through the Thai pass requirements even though it’s out of scope.
Activities we did: Scuba diving with Rewa and PADI open water courses with Katie.
Best instructors EVER. They were the most reliable and responsible centres I’ve experienced thus far.
I love how the briefs and de-briefs go; how they they their time to let you digest and express any doubts, and their patience to go through them, along with the encouragements!
Very thoughtful, very professional bunch. And most recommended.
Mommies and daddies, I’d recommmend this centre, cos they really prioritize and lookout for your needs even if you don’t highlight them. My boy is 12years old, and having Caroline and Katie, was indeed a great relief! Kudos Team! I hope to be back for his next course!:)

Got my Open Water Diving Licence here and the staff, facilities, location, training were superb. Could not recommend this place highly enough! Caroline was my instructor and she was phenomenal-professional, friendly, put me and the fellow divers at ease, patient, reassuring and more. Would defo go back here again for the next course or to do any other dives as they have years of experiences and know the best places to find the turtles, sharks, nemos, clownfish and more! Not to mention they have a great focus on the ocean and sustainability

We highly recommend anyone to choose Blue View Divers. Its like spending the day with family. We are newly qualified Open Water divers and Caroline was very flexible about planning our trip and it was perfect. Our Dive Master Katie was very experienced and enthusiastic and safety conscious and made sure we had great dives every time. And how lucky were we to see a leopard shark, a seahorse, a sea snake, a Christmas tree worm, a pipe fish, a blue spotted ray, blacktip sharks ....I could keep going. Definitely choose Blue View Divers on Phi Phi.

We went on a snorkelling trip with Blue View Divers and absolutely loved it. While more expensive than other tours, it was by far the best. It had proper diving instructors and proper snorkelling gear. We went in a small group which meant we had room to snorkel and plenty of time. They took us to great areas, supplied lunch and we were even able to see sharks! I'm someone who is nervous in the water and on boats so if that's you, I'd definitely recommend this company. Caroline was really helpful when we enquired about the trip and our guide Tye was awesome. Thanks so much!

Hi Elise, Thank you for your kind review, and for mentioning why our Eco Snorkel tours are different - professionally led with Aqualung high quality gear. The small groups ensure you get the most out of the tour, and more marine life pointed out. The guides are also trained professional divers meaning that they are patient and calm in dealing with the more nervous swimmers. Tae is really great, all his guests really enjoy snorkeling with him. Thanks again!
