Owner description: Our dive centre is located on Sunrise Beach, Koh Lipe, Thailand. We are a PADI 5 Star dive resort offering a full range of PADI diving courses. We offer daily diving around Ko Lipe from our speedboat. Our speedboat only fit 12 customer on our boat so you will have a more personnel experience when diving around Ko Lipe. We offer Small groups, maximum 4 per guide, guided by experienced Divemasters and Instructors. We offer dive packages with accommodation at Adang Sea Eco Lodge and transfers from the mainland to Koh Lipe. Ko Lipe is a beautiful place to dive and where better to do than at our shop. Our diving school is open all year around so any time you come to Koh Lipe you can contact us for a diving course or diving trip. Our instructors have work on the island for years so they know the best dive site to go to and which dive site is not too crowded by other divers. Our friendly instructors are more than happy to help you with information on the island of Ko Lipe. They also know the best restaurants to eat in on Ko Lipe so feel free to ask.

My girlfriend and I visited Koh Lipe for 4 nights in October 2012, and chose Adang because of the positive reviews on this site. We were not at all disappointed.

We went on 3 fun dives with Kris, which were all excellent and well chosen for our level of ability (we are both newly certified). We saw lots of soft corals and beautiful fish. As dive master, Kris has the enthusiasm of a newly certified diver with the professional calm of an old hand. The perfect combination.

As for the school itself, it cannot be faulted. The masks and equipment were top quality, the speedboat was spacious and comfortable to dive from, and the atmosphere around the school was very relaxed. We stayed in one of the Eco Lodges, which I would also recommend, as you are 30 seconds away from Sunrise beach and a 2 minute walk down to the main restaurants and caves. It also meant the dives were discounted, which was a bonus.

If you're looking for diving that is safe and professional but also relaxed and fun, then Adang is a smart choice.

I did a few really great dives with Adang Sea (Chris and Geoff), we saw a lot of tiny little things. Ghostpipefishes, Nudabranches, a little blue spotted ray, tons of fishes (f.e. fusseliers), crabs, shrimps, moray eels and so on.
The speedboot is comfortable and run by a nice cholae captain.
All together it was a good time with nice people and a funny underwaterworld. Thanks a lot

Chose this place mainly because they were the only ones on the island this time of year to operate out of speedboats and not long tails. Our dive master was very good and safe, two very important things. He was great at pointing out all the sealife that we would have otherwise missed. Completed a night dive as well and the dice was great. We even played with the bioluminescence in the water at the end. Good overall shop whose staff care about the aquatic environment.

Chose this shop as they ran Nitrox training and regrets as Pierre was a great help with extra information outside the book. Kris was welcoming and friendly from my first email to when I left. Chelsea a top DM and guide. It helps to have local eyes spot the wildlife and did a good job of looking after everyone in the group. After this experience and seeing some of the other dive shops I would definitely go with ASD again when I return to Lipe.
