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).

100% Completed the open water course with 4 friends. Small group of 5 and Paul our instructor was excellent. He was patient and explained everything throughly. The skills we learnt were reinforced each day and the teaching/learning was paired with diving. The company has its own boat which is good as it is more personal and also means easier and... More

潛店近碼頭 非常方便 比起大型潛店 更喜歡小潛店的休閒 潛完滿水後坐在店門口的桌子聊天很輕鬆 導潛有耐性有經驗 非常滿意的旅程 門口的冰咖啡很好喝 很喜歡! The dive shop is near the pier. This is my first time of boat diving, they waited for me to jumping down into the sea patiently. I have great time in golden divers. Golden divers is my first choice on Koh Tao. Btw the drinks shop opposite the dive shop is... More

I did my Open Waters PADI certification with Golden. I have never been extremely confident in the open sea but Emile and team made it very comfortable for me. I really enjoyed the dives and Emile was extremely patient while I struggled with some skills. It was an awesome experience and I am sure I will be back for more... More

I did my refresher with Golden Divers, as I had not dive for more than two years. It was such a pleasure to be back underwater, making bubbles with new buddies! The staff at Golden Divers was really nice and knowledgeable of the local wildlife. Great practice of diving skills and great tour under the sea where we saw lots... More

I completed my Open Water certification today. The instructors are friendly and patient. They front load your experience with videos so you understand what to expect in the water. I had trouble with my ears and one instructor hung back with me while my ears adjusted. This was my first time scuba diving and I felt safe the whole time.... More

I did a Discover scuba dive here, which I can only be positive about. Good price, the team were helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. The experience led me to go on and take my Open water course, sadly elsewhere as it was my final day on Koh Tao, otherwise I would have done it here!

These guys changed my scuba life. I spent three months on Koh Tao and did all my diving with Golden Divers. On my last weekend there I decided to get my Advance Open Water with them and it was the best decision I ever made (should have done it my first weekend there). Their training gave me incredible buoyancy control... More
