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!

Picked this place to get my open water because it cheap, but the course was top notch! Hugo was a great instructor, made us all feel welcome at Phoenix. Would definitely recommend this to anyone. Plus we got to see a whale shark on one of our training dives!!

I went to Phoenix for my Open Water course, and it was a fantastic experience. Just because they are the cheapest around does not mean they cut corners. Equipment and facilities were great. Rory was a patient, enthusiastic and genuine instructor. We had a group of 5 (all beginners) and all of us were confident in the water by the... More

The dives are all diverse and full of life and everyone on staff is so friendly and welcoming. We had a great time talking to and being around everyone. It's easy to have a place to... More

I made the openwater course with Hugo and always felt save going under water ! He explained everything in a funny way and it was easy to understand. It's always a good atmosphere there and there have an open ear for you. A Highlight was to see a whaleshark!

I just finish the advance course with Phoenix, and was really good experience! The instructor was professional and the atmosphere was really chilled and friendly. will definitely come back again☆ 最高でした〜\( ˆωˆ )/ みんな優しくてカジュアルな感じの雰囲気なのでとてもリラックスしてレッスンが受けれました♪ レッスンの後もダイビングショップで楽しくおしゃべり〜 日本語が話せるスタッフはいませんが、ベイシックな英語が出来る方であればゆっくり丁寧に説明してくれるので大丈夫だと思います☆ ファンダイブもめっちゃオススメです!

traveled to Koh Tao with a group of friends, and did our open water and advanced divers course at Phoenix divers. Great atmosphere, cheap, amazingly accommodating, very helpful and extremely professional. The price includes lodging at the hotel next door, they pick you up from the ferry, and assign you an instructor that stays with you throughout the course. Everything... More

My friend and I did our open water here and we couldn't be happier about choosing Phoenix Divers! Our instructor was Alex and he was incredible! Extremely knowledgable and makes you feel very safe throughout the course. I will definitely be back in the future, I miss it already!

Had the best few days at Phoenix divers and the ac resort. Firstly, good if on a budget, brilliant course, really nice accommodation and free breakfast! We did the open water course which was superb, mainly due to our amazing instructor Rory. He was a great teacher, made everything simple to understand, very patient and supportive if you're struggling with... More

I did my Open water and the Advanced at phoenix divers and it was an awesome experience. The classes were very good organised and everybody was so kind and helpful. When we went out to the diving spots we were in small groups of four people with one instructor. Hugo our instructor during the open water was really professional and... More
