I did my certification with this Planet Scuba many years ago. They used to be really good. Now they only have retail shops. They’re not responsive to email. If you are looking for a scuba diving go somewhere else.

I postponed my scuba dive for the second to last day of my visit. What a mistake! If I hadn't, I would have definitely done the 4-day open water certification course. Diving in Koh Tao is awesome! The marine life is beautiful and diverse. The water is warm, clean and clear. There are numerous diving schools on the island. While I don't know how diving is with them, my experience with Planet Scuba was great. My instructor was professional and made me feel safe. Unlike the other boats that we saw, with tons of people in them, we were just 4 divers which made the experience much better. If you decide to do a Try Dive, make sure you have enough days left to complete a PADI/SSI certification as you are very likely to want to get back into the water the next day!

Really glad you had such a good time diving with us! You were great throughout the day; paid excellent attention and were a natural in the water! I have no doubt you would do really well at the open water course and hope you decide to do it one day. Thanks very much for taking the time to write a review and hope to see you again some day!

I had a truly amazing experience obtaining my open water scuba certificate. I was lucky enough to have one-on-one training on the course because of the days I booked. I really felt accepted by the team which made the experience that much more enjoyable. I would highly recommend Planet Scuba to anyone looking to learn to dive on Koh Tao or take their diving skills to that next level. Although the prices of the various courses are a fraction more expensive than other diving companies on the island the experience and training you receive makes it all the more worthwhile.

Many thanks for the review! You were a pleasure to teach; it’s always nice when someone is evidently really enjoying themselves. We had some lovely dives and even had a turtle follow us for a bit! Hope the rest of your trip is awesome and you have lots of great experiences along the way. All the best, The Planet Scuba Team

Had a great time at Planet Scuba doing our open water, advanced diver and nitros tickets. My girlfriend was a bit nervous about doing the night dive but our instructor Brummie made her feel confident and safe about the whole thing. All the staff were great, we did a lot of shopping around and Planet Scuba seemed the most professional school on the island. You could possibly save yourself a few baht with a different school but I guarantee the standards will not be as high.
