Phoenix is an award winning 5 star dive school that offers both SSI & PADI courses from beginner to instructor. We are located in the heart of Koh Tao’s main backpacker beach, Sairee. This gives us one of the best locations on the entire island and we are lucky enough to have a beachfront dive school, two big dive boats, and a resort with its own dive pool.

We have been certifying divers since 2003 making us one of the first dive schools on sunny Koh Tao. Our team of instructors headed by the most experienced SSI instructor in the world and by one of the most prestigious instructor trainers ensures you will always have a fun and safe experience.

Our small group sizes, ability to teach in a variety of languages and well maintained equipment are just a few of the many reasons why we are more than just a dive school. Come and join the Phoenix family!

It was really amazing to dive with Phoenix. The instructors were great and they will help you with everything. The dorm was oké, and the wifi is not working all the time but that's no big deal. I've met a lot of other people and made a lot of new friend. I liked the diving that much that I did... More

It's been a year since I last came and this time I bought my Thai girlfriend. The dive crew were very helpful and took the time to teach her how to swim and get her to do some diving. She absolutely loved it. Would recommend to anyone!

Chose to do our PADI open water with Pheonix divers, slightly more expensive than SSI but this allowed us (I think due to it being slightly more expensive) to spend our time diving and training one on one with our instructor Markus, as no one else had booked onto the course. Even though the equipment is not brand new, it... More

I did my Padi open water and the enriched air course. The facilities were very good and the equipment was properly maintained. The instructor Markus was particularly good as he was very thorough with the course which gives you confidence, he was also very fun which made the whole experience worth it.

We scouted many different dive schools before deciding on Phoenix. My boyfriend did his open water licence and I went for a fun dive. We both had a great experience. Very professional, good equipment and also very experienced dive masters. Highly recommended!

we stayed there to do the open water diver license, the bungalow at the ac resort was nice, the location is good but not really suited for swimming but thats not what you are going there for. The best part and the main reason why you should do your open water or advanced there, are the people. Super relaxed young... More

Everything was perfect. I booked online and when I arrived to Koh Tao there was a taxi waiting for me and within twenty minutes I was greeted by the friendly staff and checked into a really nice dorm room with AC - which is included in the 8,500 baht price. I started the course the same day and even though... More
