My girlfriend and I completed 4 dives each with Rob and from the first moment we met him we knew it would be good dives. We originally went to another dive school close to Montalay but the staff at the other place seemed very uninterested in taking us diving and we decided not to go with them. Rob is an amazing instructor, both under and over water he is very attentive to everyone diving, asking about how we felt and how the dives went. He knows all the dive sites by heart, and was really good at briefing us about the sites. With more than 15 years diving Koh Tao his experience is amazing, and it was a pleasure to go with him because we were always a small group, and mainly stayed away from the busy dive sites so the experience in the water was much better. If I come back to Koh Tao there is no way I will dive with anyone else than him!

My wife and I had great refresh dive with Robert (we have not been diving for several years). THB 1,800 p.p. was great value for money (some theory, pool + dive in the sea for almost an hour). Robert is very patient, attentive and easy-going. His 15 years on the island make him one of the most experienced and knowledgeable instructors near and far. The equipment was in good shape. Montalay diving has same owner as Buddha view, which gives access to their big boats. For two persons we had Robert and big diving boat to ourselves for a half day diving trip (two dives for THB 1,800 p.p. including all gear, transfer to the pier, water and melon). Definitely recommend.

What a guy Rob is, my girlfriend and I did 2 fun dives with him and he is such a chilled guy. So enjoyable to dive with, safe but you feel relaxed. Would highly recommend anyone looking to do dives to do them with Rob!

Awesome diving trip 🤙🏽. Our lovely instructor Patricia was so kind. We've been two hours under the water and saw a beautiful underwater world: colorful fishes 🐠🐟, corals and even a ray 😍. We enjoyed it very much and we are up to do it again next time. 🤙🏽 Highly recommend instructor!

We were 4 couples and stayed for one week at the Montalay Resort. 2 couples already had their licenses and went for fun dives. One couple, my fiancé and me did our open water diving course. I have to say that I was not sure if I would overcome my fear but Robert was very patient and in the end I made it - thanks to Robert! He is a fantastic instructor with whom you always feel safe. The dive center is the best choice if you are looking for a small group and no mass processing. I totally recommend it. On our last day we went for a fun dive all together (4 couples) and we had the whole dive boat for us alone - it was awesome!
