Our dive school wants to give you the customer the best dive experience we possibly can, so for people wishing to take a PADI course we make sure our groups are no bigger than 4 people this enables our experienced instructors to give you plenty of individual attention making you a better and safer diver...for certified people who just want to fun dive our dive leaders are very experienced with all the dive site's around this beautiful island and we have no limit on dive time our boat only goes out once a day for 2 dives so were not restricted by schedules...and our boat does not leave until 11pm this means no setting your alarm at 6.30 your are on holiday after all, also leaving at this time means we arrive at dive sites when other schools are leaving so we can spend more time looking at the fish and not other divers so come join our magical underwater world on the rock (Koh Tao).

I had no diving experience at all before coming to Koh Tao. Neil, my dive master at Golden Divers, took care of me, was very reassuring, and made sure I had an amazing experience under water. He showed me all kinds of beautiful fish and coral I would probably not have noticed without his help. After a first DSD I... More

I finished my open water and advanced course at Golden divers and couldn't be more satisfied! I feel I am ready to go dive and have gotten the best education possible to prepare me for the world below the surface. Small groups of students and an personel who simultaniously manages to treat you as a customer in a superproffessional maner... More

From the moment we arrived at Golden Divers we were greeted with a warm welcome by the team. I was travelling Thailand with my sister who had been diving previously before and I have to say as a complete beginner to diving I was a little nervous about learning. I was immediately made to feel at ease with the team... More

I have to say, I cannot disagree with the negative review below more. I came to Koh Tao tagging a long with friends who were keen divers; i had no desire to dive. That all changed! After kindly allowing me on the boat to join the divers snorkelling, during which I had such a wonderful time with the great dive... More

Every one at the shop made me feel so welcome and safe, so I decided to do my open water course with them. Paul was our instructor and was so patient and wonderful with us. It was only two students, so we both got a lot of individual attention. They knew the best spots all around the island and I... More

Dear mister Yuan, thanks a lot for taking the effort to leave us some feedback. You even went through the trouble of starting an account on TripAdvisor, and went so far to put your feedback in Chinese. Thank you. We are sorry but merely quite surprised to find out only now that your dive course wasn't completely to your satisfaction.... More

Golden divers offer the most affordable diving on Koh Tao and have the best diving instructors too! I only took part in the DSD (try dive) and would recommend the dive school to anybody on Koh Tao. Paul, Neil, Emile, Lisa and the rest of the crew were all so friendly and made my experience even better. Keep up the... More

Completed my Advanced Open Water certification with Paul as my instructor. Paul is a fantastic instructor and his kindness, patience, and professionalism made my diving experience in Koh Tao very enjoyable. The student to instructor ratio during my course was either 1:1 or 2:1; I loved the smaller classes and extra help and attention from the instructor! While searching for... More

I'm an experienced cold water Divemaster with diving experience throughout the world. This year - with my kids (9 and 11) in Koh Tao and offcourse we had to dive. The trip all went according to high (padi) standards, which means good teaching and safety, but also a very complete experience, including clear briefings on the dives and the 'rules'... More
