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!

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

Strongly recommend the Phoeanix Divers Shool on Koh Tao, had course with Isreal Beltran who took us to most famous diving point around the Island. Besides the course is in good price includes accomodation (just at the beach) and breakfast.

For the price this place is really good. My only complaint is that we didn't go to the locations that they told us we would go to. Some of the equipment is pretty old as well but if you are experienced then it shouldn't be a problem. Come here if you are looking for the best deals but you get... More
