We are a family of four who contacted Koh Kood Divers because we'd stayed in the bay before and wanted to combine the Padi Open Water qualification with our 2nd holiday on Koh Kood, in Oct/Nov 2012 (sorry it's taken us so long to get round to this review guys!). They were relaxed about planning our tuition so that it was a very enjoyable part of our time there. Only 3 of us went on to do the Padi qualification, but the 4th really enjoyed the lessons, the final dive day out on the boat and all the snorkelling. The bay on which Koh Kood Divers is based is an ideal place to learn because the water is fairly shallow and the coral reefs and marinelife are interesting and beautiful. Jessie and Bob are very professional and fun; we thoroughly recommend Koh Kood Divers and hope to return sometime soon. The Woods family, Brighton, UK.

Koh Kood divers is run by Jessie and Bob, father and son from Holland.
They've been doing diving instruction for years, and they are very
professional, but also very easy-going---I felt at ease very quickly,
even though I was initially a bit nervous. I had one-on-one
instruction with Jessie for my PADI open water certification. We went
through the course material from the book and did tests on the theory,
and did some dives from the dock for the first couple of days to
practice different skills. On the final day we took two boat dives
towards the north of the island.

All of the dives were relaxed and fun---the water was very clear and
warm, and there was a great variety of fish. Jessie pointed out
points of interest---an octopus, rays, eels hiding under the rocks.
He also paused from time to time to remove invasive species or to
transplant coral to help it regrow. I appreciated that, because it
made me feel like we were a positive presence in the water; that
Jessie and Bob were conscious of preserving their surroundings.

I would definitely go diving again with Koh Kood Divers! And I
recommend getting your PADI certification with them.

We decided to do our first diving experience with Kho Kood Divers and it was amazing. We got a theoretical Input at the beginning and after that we started diving in shallow water. At the end we got about 6 meters deep at the coral reef nearby their base. The hole time during our dive we felt safe and comfortable. It was very nice that there were only the two of us and the coach. They told us, they usually do dives with small groups. All in all we were happy with our diving trip and can recommend them to everybody.

We spent 3 days diving with Koh Kood divers and cannot praise then enough. They said be on the dock at 9 am for pick-up and they were there at 9 am. We did not rent any equipment as we have our own so cannot comment on any equipment apart from the tank and weights. The tanks were clean and obviously well looked after as was the compressor, great to see. O-rings were cared for and obviously checked regularly for wear and tear, we assume this level of care also extends to their other equipment.

The dives were some of the best we have had in Thailand and one site had coral in pristine condition and we mean pristine. The dives were shallow 12m-15m, which allowed for dives well in excess of an hour. The dives were relaxed and the DM was always on the ball and used safe practices, such as deploying a SMB prior to surfacing.

Why not 5 stars? Their custom dive boat was in for servicing and they had to hire local boats which whilst comfortable and well operated were not set-up for diving operations.

We would certainly dive with Koh Kood Divers again.
