I had a great time at Ban's diving centre! My instructor, Neil, explained everything calm and clear. I felt very safe and could take the time to learn everything on my own time. The dives were organised well and there were a lot nice things to see. I had a lot of fun and definitely recommend to dive here!

Diving with Darren at Bans has to be one of the best experiences so far in my backpacking journey. Arriving in koh Tao it is a little over whelming because there is so many company’s to dive with. I came across BANS online and liked the sound of the reviews I had read. From the get go, Darren was super welcoming and likeable. Throughout the whole course he was extremely thorough, comforting when nervous, informative and fun! I was lucky enough to have such a great class also and ended up making some great friends. I signed up for my open water course and enjoyed it so much that I went for the next level the advanced course and requested it to be with Darren. He went above and beyond to ensure that this could be done with myself and one other student despite his very busy schedule which we couldn’t be more greatful for. (Really recommend the advanced course if you are here long enough) A great value, enjoyable Experience which I would recommend to anyone especially if you are backpacking or on holiday with your freinds. Loved it!!!

If you wanna learn diving koh tao is the place and in koh tao you have to pick bans diving. They know their job and they make it fun and easy to learn. Was lucky to have done my open water course with Neil Giblin and Jack Holley. They were amazing.. very easy going and won't let you make a mistake cause they explain it so well. And they made it fun too. We did 2 pool doves and 4 open water dives of the coast of koh tao. By the end of it we felt like profesional diver. Just felt, were not.. lot more to learn. Ask for Neil and Jake when you book your dive with bans diving or look for them on Instagram and connect directly @diving_with_neil and @jacob.holley.524 Thanks for this experience bans, Neil and Jake. Cheers see you soon
