I arranged a Phi Phi island day scuba diving tour through Rumblefish. It was a great day and I would use them again! They picked us up from our hotel around 7am and took us to the Phuket marina. From there we met our dive master for the day. Once on board the massive ship (lots of other dive companies... More

So one day while sitting at work I decided I wanted to become a better Scuba Diver. I also always wanted to visit Thailand. After a couple of emails to dive shops in Phuket the choice became quite clear after Thien, the shop owner responded with a clear timeline and a real plan to meet my lofty goals. No other... More

The Guys at Rumblefish could not be more helpful. A great few days doing the training, the pool for confined water dives is very close and the 'classroom' is air conditioned.

Taking my open water course an Rumblefish Adventures was an amazing experience, and one that I will never forget. Thien, and my instructor Morris introduced me to an entire new world that I will be forever grateful for.

I came to Rumblefish for an advanced diving course from a recommendation. The diving lessons were on a very high level with friendly atmosphere. I had private lessons with a very good instructor, whereas other schools offer lessons in groups of 4-8 students. I learned enormously lot! Rumblefish turned out to be much more than a great diving school! The... More

Best dive education on Phuket, period! Thien runs an excellent dive operation and makes sure his instructors live up to his high standards. Rumblefish goes above and beyond that, though, by arranging not only training but almost your entire vacation stay. Thien helped us not only with the diving portion, but helped by making our reservations at Capannina Inn (a... More

If you need the cheapest bed in Kata or Phukett for that matter, it is probably here. And I won't doubt that the man in charge is trying to provide decent and eco services like water coolers for re-filling your bottle and snacks on hand for purchasing where you just write down what you use and at a decent price....
