This is my fourth visit to roctopus and it doesn’t disappoint. This time I did my Master Rescue Diver. Stephen Read is a phenomenal, experienced, and knowledgeable instructor. Ainsley Henderson was fantastic modeling all the ways things could go wrong so my buddy and I could hone our new rescue skills. I highly recommend coming here for training and fun diving!

Wow, just simply wow! Today I finished my Open Water 20 certification and it was hands down one of my favorite things I've ever done. From start to finish, I could not have asked for a better experience. The whole Roctopus team is absolutely brilliant! Everyone is extremely helpful and makes you feel at ease from the get go. I was super nervous to dive for the first time and everyone at Roctopus made it so amazing. I cannot speak more highly of Frankie, my dive instructor. He is so knowledgeable about every aspect of diving and puts all your nerves at ease. From day one, Frankie made sure I felt comfortable, while also ensuring I learned all the important components of knowing how to dive. Throughout the course, he really took his time to thoroughly explain both the science and techniques of diving. If there was ever a time I was unsure, Frankie was always beyond patient, modeling skills for me again and letting me retry as often as I needed. I felt extremely safe and comfortable going into the water on our actual dives and just had the most epic time. I will absolutely be back at Roctopus to continue my diving training. If you're thinking of doing a dive, Roctopus is the only way to go!

I had a great time getting my Open Water 20 dive certification at Roctopus with Steve. This was my first time diving and he made it easy and stress-free. The dive sites were beautiful and definitely worth it?

Fantastic weekend with Steve and the Roctopus crew. Koh Tao is unusually quiet now in Covid times, but for people who do make it down to the island it means beautiful beaches and even more private service than usual. We had some of the world's most well known dive sites to ourselves for two days at a more than fair price. Steve and the crew looked after us on their roomy boat and the water visibility was fantastic. Roctopus is a mid-sized dive shop so has its own infrastructure, but without the industrial processing of some of the larger companies. I'd definitely recommend Roctopus when you're trying to choose between the many different dive shops on the island.
