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).

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

Last dive was a couple of years ago, so we decided to do a refresh and a fun dive. Great instructions by Neil, he managed to reassure my somewhat nervous partner. Recommended!

I felt as though the company made you feel very safe and comfortable before taking you into the water. They made sure you new all of the skills needed before going into the dive. The only negative comment I have is the organisation. We were told to turn up at 12 for the afternoon dive and ended up hanging around... More

Me and my friend decided to do our Open Water diving course here at Golden Divers. And one thing beforehand, it was the right thing to do. The whole atmosphere can be described as very familial and friendly but at the same time very professional. We felt like we were diving with experienced friends instead of just instructors. Furthermore, the... More

This is a great diving school! They are located right next to the pier which is handy and are extremely friendly and professional. I think it's worth saying that I was a first time scuba diver and found out it wasn't for me as I just panicked! However, I still had a fantastic time as our instructor Jo was so... More

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
