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!

Phoenix Divers is absolutely the best diving school! The team is very helpful and friendly, they even took us to a spontaneous snorkeling trip (for free) when there was a whale shark spotted out there. We had Claus as our diving instructor, he is high professional and we felt really comfortable diving with him!! Diving was so much fun that... More

My experience with Phoenix Divers was, hands down, phenomenal! We planned our trip a bit last minute (the day of...) and the Phoenix crew was more than accommodating. Our instructor, Rory, stayed at the shop for our late arrival and gave us a good head start, so we could begin our pool instruction the next day. Everyone at the shop... More

A fun diving school with family-like atmosphere. Did an Open Water Course with them - they apparently have one of the most experienced instructors in the world named claus. Good teaching. Always felt ready and safe. Ended up doing fun dives with them as well for real cheap (700baht per dive) and spotted a whale shark :) they got a... More

My wife and I wanted to get our Open Water certification on our honeymoon. My wife was terrified (to the point of tears) to try diving (don't worry, she approves this message). We met with Rory, who was our instructor in our group of three. His teaches using many different methods and has a talent for explaining things so that... More

I've done the Open Water course, my first diving experience. It was well arranged with a very good instructor, Rory! He explains everything in a clear way, guides you step by step during the diving and makes sure you're having fun too. I would definitely recommend Phoenix divers!

Simply the best diving-school in Ko Tao!! The staff is amazing (you really get a family-like feeling while staying with them -> just super friendly human beeings), they offer free accomodation with most of there diving-courses while still managing to be the dive-school with the most decent pricing in Ko Tao. Would (and will) come back any time!! 10/10!!

My mate and I spent 2 days (4 fun dives) out on and in the water with Phoenix divers. We booked because of their unbeatable prices for bundled accommodation and diving. Got there about half an hour before the afternoon dive boat left and Tim went out of his way to get us onto that very trip because we felt... More
