My son and I dove with Discovery in February, he did his PADI OW course and I accompanied him.
From the very start with numerous emails to Eric the service was excellent, fast replies and very accommodating.
My own BCD failed and they loaned me one of theirs without question and offered to try and have mine fixed locally. The owner is more concerned with quality than quantity, he will not send the boats to a different location if the visibility reports are bad, even if it means losing customers. He is able to do this as he owns his own boats. I have dove with other companies in Samui and they had a set schedule, they went to a certain dive site even if the conditions were bad.
The groups are small, 12 divers per boat.
The staff was genuinely friendly and relaxed, not putting on a show for tourists.Especially liked the practical joke Eric played on one of his DM's, all in good fun. Our DM, Joe, was great, really let us move at our own pace and recognized and responded to our needs. A small thing, but Joe rigged my gear for all dives and even fresh water washed it after the first day, something I have never received at other centers.
Very nice variety of sea life including a large sea turtle. Great pictures Joe!
To sum up......Small groups, personal service, friendly operator.
P.S. I rated this as Very Good because I'm pretty critical and it is nearly impossible to get an Excellent out of me :-)
