I had hear about Koh Lipe from some friends and thought I would try it out for some diving. I stayed on the Island for 5 nights and found it to be a very good experience. I am a certified DM.
The first 2 days I dove with another dive company and found them to very personable and professional. I did have some problems with their equipment and it took several attempts to get a working set of equipment that did worked properly.
As for Ocean Pro Divers; I found them to be very professional and fun to dive with, their equipment was all brand new (new each year I was told) so no problems with air leaks and found their dive boat to be incredibly comfortable. Being the end of the low season, we only had 4 divers including myself, the divemaster (Duncan) and in addition, either had one of the experiences boat crew diving with us or on one of the dives, Noi actually took 2 of the 4 divers to see some specifically requested sites. While the currents were strong, our divemaster managed to minimize the amount of time we spent fighting the currents and tried as best he could, to maximize the amount of time we were drifting with the current. I found them to be extremely safety conscious and when doing a wreck dive to about 30 meters, the DM carried a spare tank and also a seperate spare tank was lowered at out safety stop level, both just in case any of us got low on air. The DM also kept very good track of all divers air supply.
All in all, I would chose them again next time I go back to Koh Lipe. Rick F.
