Pimp My Dive is run by a great couple, Aude & Olivier, both with worldwide diving experience. They offer a high quality service with a more private aspect to it. Classes are held with 1 instructor per 2 students which offers a pretty much tailored course and you will get all the attention you deserve to become an able and confident diver.
They operate from Mae Haad close to the main Pier and use some of the most comfortable boats available on the island!
Their equipment is spotless and so is their shop which shows their attention for detail.
I would highly recommend Pimp My Dive if you are a beginner looking for a comfortable and close to tailor made classes or if you are a seasoned diver and are looking for some serious and professional, yet fun people to guide you on the best dive sites around Koh Tao! And you can always increase your specs with them too :D

I dived with Aude and Olivier this weekend. I can't thank them enough for how accommodating and nice they were. We had a lot of beginners in our group and even a non swimmer. They dealt with the situation like the pros they are, making sure everyone felt safe, confortable and confident before going into the water and once in the water. My friends had the best time and all want to pass their open water now!

We wanted to do different things and ended up with a day tailored to our specific needs. Think of prioritizing a smaller scuba club like pimp my dive if you want a personalized approach instead of a big shop where you'll just be one more tourist in the mass.

Knowledgeable, funny, safe, fluent in English and French, I will definitely dive with them again whenever I get back to koh Tao.

Merci encore Aude et Olivier, à bientôt j'espère 🐠 !

Excellent instructors and with small groups you get all the benefit of their experience, stories & guidance. From being a complete novice, who was relatively nervous on the first dive, to having genuine confidence when stepping in to the water at the end of the open water course. Highly recommended to anyone interested in learning how to dive.

Five stars for Aude, Olivier and Dada. They made our diving vacation an absolute success. As a father I completely trusted Aude with both my teenage sons while they did their Open water. Olivier was superb when taking my 9 year old on the Bubblemakker dive, he loved the dive. And for the Refresh course, both I and my wife felt in very comfortable. I rarely meet instructors that are so professional, so calm and so friendly, they are special people. They humbly say that their English is OK, their English is great. I can only give Aude and Olivier the highest recommendation. Maybe I (our family) will be lucky enough to come back and enjoy their company. It has truly been a pleasure! Merci beaucoup!

My experience with Pimp my dive was perfect!

I went there for my open water but ended up continuing on the advanced level.
I am so thankful to Aude, Olivier and Dada for their professionalism and their kindness.
The equipments quality is clearly good, their shop is super nice, and the atmosphere is very chill!
They can also guide you to some cool snorkeling spots 👍🏼

I hope I will come back one day to see you guys (also hoping to see a whale shark this time 🤞🏼)

We were a group of 5 with two 8 year old kids and three adults with diverse diving experience (2 with Advanced PADIs and one Open Water who hadn’t dived in years).
Aude and Olivier arranged a great day that suited everyone. We went to Mango Bay and then
Japanese Gardens. The kids did the Bubble Maker discovery program and had a blast ( they even followed a turtle for a while !). It was one instructor per kid, 2m deep and Aude and Olivier are so nice and professional that we felt in total confidence leaving the kids to their dives while we took ours. Having not dived since I passed my PADI, I was a bit nervous at first, but Aude was great. We had her just for the three of us, and after her brief and a few review exercises in the water, I was ready to enjoy a beautiful trip underwater.
Go there, you won’t regret it !
