This was my first time diving in Ko Tao. I dived and stayed at the Carabao Dive Center and Resort, a great place with friendly staff, clean and spacious rooms, great food and fair prices! Plus awesome diving! We went to different dive sites for each and every one of the three days I spent there. The dive lead was knowledgeable and with a keen eye for macro stuff. The owner, Khun Noi, joined us on the boat and made sure that all our requests were taken care of in the best manner. I wish I had more than three days to spend on the island, I left with great memories and with a promise to myself to go back as soon as possible...for a longer stay. Many thanks to Khun Noi for all the help, See you again soon, Andrew

I have been meaning to write this review for months now however felt it was super important due to my amazing experience!! I had not been in the water for a year after my dive course and had to do a refresh however the team at Carabao was super helpful and friendly! Everyone is generally welcoming and interested in what you are up to- if i had more time I would have done my full masters with them! Elias and Milly were great and treated me like a mate rather than clients but were also super professional and helpful! I was the only person in my category and have some amazing dive experiences with most of the team along with us which was super fun! Staying at the resort is super relaxing, for dorm rooms as everyone has their own space. Will head back again next year for sure!

Amazing dive center, did the open water course with Chris. He is super professional, explains all very clear and good. At the same time he is relaxed and fun.. wish I had teachers like this back in school ;-). Rest of diving crew was very friendly and helpful as well. Did another free dive and deepwater dive with Cynthia who was just as friendly and good. I felt at home and sad to leave after five days. If you book open water course the hotel is very cheap (also not super good) and location is amazing.

Had an amazing stay at Carabao, beatiful scenery, great staff and good food! Had Xavier Martineu as our instructor and he was great! Really good with calming us down if you got a little stressed out underwater, we will be back!

In short this is a special place full off very kind and skilled divers, you feel welcome from the start. Thanks for the experience we will never forget and opening (literally) a new underwater world for us. During our stay at Koh Tao we did the SSI Open Water (3 days). We had a very good instructor Chris. He is a good teacher, explaining it clearly for all the participants. You start with some theory, pool session, more theory, exam and then the fun begins. With the Open Water course that we chose we went for 4 dives in the sea which is spectacular. The dive sights around Koh Tao are amazing. We were so enthusiastic that we went for the Deep Dive (30 meter) immediately afterwards. Thanks for guiding us on the deep dive Cynthia.
