Hi. It looks like this review is for the Komodo Indonesia Live Aboard, rather than our Koh Lipe botique resort. BUT... Many thanks for your lovely review. I will pass on your compliments to the live aboard team.

All this is for DJL Koh Tao, I have been to the Koh Lipe site and it is very nice. A different vibe to Koh Tao, much more laid back island but still plenty to do. The diving is also very different. There are more currents... More

DJL Diving (Davy Jones' Locker) at Silver Sands (15 Replies)
Has anyone dived with this company? Its the company attached to the Silver Sands Resort. A nice man named Phil that works there emailed me back and told me we'd get a discount since we're staying at the hotel, but I can't find anything on here about them. Any info would be great! Thanks! McKay

I am planning on getting certified on Ko Tao and was recently talking with a friend of mine who got her Open Water and Advanced with DJL... she highly reccomends them. She said that they have small classes with smaller and faster boats. She loved the instructors and said it had fantastic accommodations on the beach! So I haven't personally used them but am planning on it now!! Cheers.
