Just got my PADI OWD certification over the course of 3 days with this company. My wife and I are doing Railay Beach, and PADI certification was top of my list. First contact was with Jeff at the office on Tonsai Beach. We were immediately made to feel welcome as he gave his spiel of what to expect over the 3-day course. The next morning, their private longtail picked us up at Railay Beach to shuttle us to their large dive boat, the Ladavdee. My instructor was Peter, an experienced divemaster who has been instructing in Thailand for over 9 years. Peter is a fantastic instructor hailing from Sweden and the U.S., and just a really good guy. He made me feel safe at every turn, took charge in every situation, and was easy-going and personable. He was intentional on taking time to teach me not only the "how," but also the "why" behind the aspects of safe diving. It's evident he finds fulfillment in imparting his knowledge to beginners. The first 2 days, we dove locally in the Railay Beach/Ao Nang area. Being the beginning of the month, with the moon's position, the waters were quite murky, limiting visibility to 5-8 meters. Luckily, we had friends joining us on the 3rd day who really wanted to dive off Koh Phi Phi, and gladly forked over the extra baht to make the much longer trip worth it for the company. Let me tell you that IT WAS WORTH IT. I hear there are possibly a few better diving spots on Earth, but I can't imagine what that would look like. We had a perfect day, and Phi Phi was breathtaking in every way, with visibility well over 20m. My wife, who has a dozen or so dives under her belt actually wept in her mask! You would really be doing yourself a disservice to miss out on this. I'm so thankful I got to make my 2 final OWD's in the most outrageously beautiful environment I've ever experienced. By that time, I was comfortable enough to really take in the amazing marine life, instead of concentrating solely on the basics that become second-nature to a diver. Peter is a marine life buff and enjoyed pointing out all that he could below the surface. He always carried a writing tablet with him to record the names of things we saw. For me, personally, everything went quite smoothly. Besides my hereditary challenges with properly equalizing (ouch), I only had one minor incident during the skill exercise where you switch to your buddy's alternate regulator in a low-air/no-air emergency situation. After beginning to breathe into the reg, I knew something was wrong because the reg was taking in water. I kept exhaling hard to purge the reg, and Peter immediately recognized the problem. I had the reg upside-down. Rookie mistake! He was calm and collected and acted swiftly. Thank you, Pete! Aside from the cushy Ladavdee, another nice little perk of diving with these guys is that lunch, snacks and drinks are included in the price. In the words of Jeff, "It's not, 'Do you need lunch picked up for you?' It's 'What would you like for lunch?'" They really go the extra mile with customer service. Also, the dive groups were small. Never more than 6-8 customers on our trips, and on the last day it was only my wife, me, and our 2 friends. We had the whole boat and team to ourselves. Pretty cool. Not to mention, the gear is top-notch and well-maintained. Ok, well now I'm starting to sound like I was paid to write this, but I truly had a wonderful, memorable time. We even got to observe a large troupe of monkeys up close over at the office while we were settling up, which delighted my photographer wife to no end. What more could you ask for! I would not hesitate to recommend Scuba Addicts Phi Phi to anyone. Ask for Peter! Cheers.

Recently returned from a 3 week trip to Thailand where the Scuba Addicts took us to some breathtaking locations whilst making the experience fun, comfortable and interesting. Ton Sai is a quiet, beautiful and fun place to stay and this lot will certainly make it a worthwhile visit. Here is a video of the things we saw http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66NVw3X71Bs
