I had the pleasure of diving with koh mak divers twice. On the first day we went to the marine park on a big boat. I was quite nervous as I haven’t been regularly diving in a few years, but the professional and extremely nice team made all my fears go away. We went on two dives that day, with a big boat and a group of snorklers, between the dives We got some delicious lunch and I was able to nap a little on top of the boat which was really great!
On the second day we went to see the HTMC Chang Wreck, this time we took the speedboat, which gave us a very intimate and private experience! Our guide Trent was very helpful and gave me a great sense of security as I was a bit worried about diving inside a wreck and the overall dept of the dive. The site was amazing! I was absolutely overwhelmed and at no stage I felt unsafe thanks to our wonderful guide!! Between the dives again we had lunch and everyone on the boat fell asleep for a little nap :) on the second dive we had slightly better visibility and got to see even more of the sunken ship. This was really an extraordinary experience that I will be happy to recommend to anyone coming to koh mak! Thank you so much, Trent and the rest of the team for a really great time <3

We had a great family snorkering trip! My three kids ( aged 6, 8 and 13) simply loved it - it was the first time for them to explore colar reefs with a snorker. Even the youngest kept on swimming and looking for new fish and coral reef animals at each of the three snorkering spots. Blue corals, parrot fish, box fish, and needlefish are his favorites.

I definitely recommend a snorkering trip with Kohmak Divers to all families travelling to Kohmak. We had an amazing experience as the trip perfectly organized. On top of this, Trent has an unique ability to teach you so much about marine wildlife in a funny yet memorable way.

I cannot recommend Koh Mak Divers enough after gaining a fantastic introduction to the world of diving.

My girlfriend and I completed the PADI Open Water certification with Koh Mak Divers in December 2019 and were extremely impressed by the attentiveness and care of their staff. So much so that we’re planning on returning here this year as we want to do further PADI courses with them – quite the endorsement considering we both live in London.

Having great instructors who really care about your education rather than churning out qualifications as fast as possible makes such a difference!

The staff are incredibly friendly and really approachable, and have accommodated us at every step. Bringing years of experience and expertise to the table, you'll be able to learn so much with these guys and we could not be more impressed with the team.

Feeling rather slightly apprehensive, our instructor Trent was absolutely fantastic and immediately put us at ease. His friendly nature coupled with his professionalism not only made the experience of learning brand new diving skills thoroughly enjoyable, but has made us enthusiastic to continue this pastime.

Lastly, the dive sites we visited in the Koh Rang Marine Park were wonderful, with an abundance of sea life that’ll pretty much blow your mind if you are new to diving.

Very friendly and competent and professional team
my wife did snorkelling and I went diving during a full day from 10am to 4pm on their typical thai boat. Visibility was not the best during these days but they brought us to great locations in terms of coral life and fish variety.
I also did a tune up with Tom after no diving for 2 years and this was very helpful.

Diving with Koh Mak Divers was a great experience on all Levels.
I first did a tune up with them, Then decided to do a speciality dive at the wreck which was mindblowing and in the end i just did my advanced open water diver course with them.

Every day i felt well taken care for, all the time i was feeling safe and well informed.

My instructor Trent was very knowledgable and really opened another level of diving for me. I certified today Feeling comfortable and ready to keep diving!

Can only recommend diving with koh mak divers.

+ Dive spots (lots of colorful fish, beautiful corals, spectacular marine life).
+ instructors (super nice, relaxed, experienced)
+ relaxed dive (no stress, at our convenience, lots of time underwater so you could see everything in peace)
+ food (delicious Thai food, fresh fruit, lots of water)
+ ocean cleaning (no pollution but cleaning)

We went diving with Koh Mak Divers for one day in November 2021. We did 2 dives á ~60min - just awesome!
We already had a bit of experience through 15 dives. However, these were more than 3 years ago. The dive instructor gave us a very good, short refresher before we started.
We were completely overwhelmed by the spectacular underwater world and the amount of colorful fish of all sizes! The instructor clearly guided us to the best dive sites. He took a lot of time to point out different animals and corals that we would not have seen on our own. And during all of this he radiated a super relaxed aura. He was also willing to give us suggestions for improving our diving technique, which we gladly accepted. His great diving experience was another big plus for us!
We can also absolutely recommend Koh Mak Divers for snorkeling trips.
The lunch was also great. We could enjoy delicious Thai food without stress and chat with the instructor in the meantime. In addition, plenty of fruits were freshly pre-cut for us.

We had a great day out on the boat snorkelling. Big shout out to Craig who took good care of us on the day. We went to two different sites, one had multiple sunken statues on the seabed which was really interesting as we had never seen anything like that before. Great day, would definitely recommend!

Spent an awesome day with a super cool crew. They are a lot of fun, professional, knowledgeable and very well organised.
We saw a beautiful underwater world, had nice lunch and fresh fruit on board and were well taken care of at all times. Whether you’re diving or snorkeling, I can highly recommend Koh Mak Divers.

We enjoyed the first snorkelling trip so much that we booked again and went a second time a few days later. Professional, friendly and enthusiastic crew. High-quality masks and fins that are fitted individually made me feel at ease in the water. The corals and fishes are stunning. We even saw a turtle.

We did two dives with Koh Mak Divers and were super impressed with their approach. Laid back, friendly yet always professional. Craig gave very clear dive briefings and was so great to dive with, Craig was always helping us on the boat and Steve arranged everything with no problems and was also very flexible. Their equipment was of high quality (so nice to have integrated weights too!) and we felt safe at all times. Diving was lovely - very relaxing, colourful. Overall, a great experience. Would highly recommend!
