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!

Did my course with Hugo, loved every minute of it! The wreck and night dives were amazing. Managed to sort me out quickly when my original instructor could not equalise on our first dive. Will definitely be back!

Koh Tao has loads of dive schools so it was pretty hard to choose but Phoenix was reccommended to my by some other travellers and we booked on right away. They are easy going, friendly (mostly, there's always one), patient and squashed all our fears in a 5 minute talk. We had Claus as our instructor with Jojo helping -... More

From the unwarm welcome at the front desk, to the attitude of the people working in the diving team, I would absolutely not recommend this diving center.

Me and my girlfriend took the open water course, both had never been diving before and Phoenix divers and our instructor Rory made us feel comfortable right from the get go! He was patient at times when we struggled and really helped us all the way through the course! Both passed and it was all down to these guys! Doesn't... More

I have to disagree with the person saying Phoenix don't tailor for the client and here is why. I was initially incredibly uncomfortable being under the water with an air supply. I struggled to breath underwater, and had major difficulties removing my mask and draining the water. In our pool dive for the open water course I struggled. Realising this... More

As much as the name and website suggest, this diveschool is anywhere but in line with rebirth- the school is laid back but very impersonal, sometimes even uninterested. It more relates to the Chinese Yon version of the Phoenix : passive, The teachers know what they are doing - I admit and I felt safe diving with them - but... More

A few of my friends and I decided to try scuba diving out. We gave Phoenix Divers a shot, and did a beginners scuba diving day. We had an amazing time with our guide, Hugo. He talked us into becoming certified scuba divers. We ended up canceling our trip to Koh Samui and staying in Koh Tao for 3 more... More

Great company, I would definitely recommend them!! Phoenix divers were quick to respond to inquiries, well organized, fairly priced and the instructors were excellent. Phoenix provided free accommodation during the course as well as free breakfasts which was a bonus. The resort is also located in a convenient spot (quiet, but close to the night life) and had its own... More
