My wife, my 14 year old son, my 13 year old daughter and I (all PADI Open Water certified) spent four great days diving with Sea Fun Diver at Racha Yai, Racha Noi, Shark point, ‘King Cruiser’ wreck and Phi Phi Islands.

Our accommodation happened to be near the CEOs (Rene) home, so he kindly picked us up each morning and drove us directly to the boat with a joke from his staff that we must be VIPs.

The boat was clean and well-kept by the boat crew.
It comprised of two decks: a lower deck with wheel house/cabin (air con) up forward and the dive prep area astern; an upper deck with a small seating area up forward for the sun worshipers and a larger sheltered seating area astern for those wanting to keep out of the sun. There were two toilets on both the port and starboard sides of the vessel with light hearted instructions from the crew on the correct use of them at sea and at anchor.

When joining the boat in the morning there were hot and cold drinks on offer with sandwiches & croissants available for those that missed breakfast. For lunch there was a buffet with a couple of Thai meat dishes, a Thai vegetarian dish, rice, salad and fruit. Ample hot and cold drinks were available all day.

Though not the best time of year for diving off the west coast of Thailand, Sea Fun divers checked the weather forecast each morning and planned the safest and best dive sites to suit the prevailing weather conditions. We went on four dive trips in a week and were lucky enough to dive at different locations each time.
Our Thai dive guide ‘New’ was extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable with a health focus on safety. He had an uncanny ability to spot the un-spottable and to point out to us the fauna that we would have undoubtedly missed had he not been there. My family and I had a great diving experience with New and I would ask for him again.
It is difficult to list all we saw but the highlights, especially for the kids, were: the leopard shark, the black tip reef shark and the amazing colour displays of the mating cuttle fish.

Rene & his staff ensured we had a wonderful time and we cannot thank them enough for the great experiences we had. It made our trip to Phuket a memorable one & we would recommend Sea Fun divers to anyone.

As with all the positive reviews I agree. Our family was at Kata Noi for a wedding and wanted to do some diving. Sea Fun Divers worked around all our family and wedding activities to make sure we could do our open water certificates. My two daughters and I were very impressed with all aspects our dive course. Thank You Very Much.

My 21-year-old son and I just spent three great days diving (we are PADI Open Water certified) off Phuket, around the Phi Phi Islands. Despite the fact that this is not the best season for underwater visibility or wave-action on the surface, we had a wonderful experience, with terrific camaraderie on the boat (six paying divers, two divemasters, three Thai staff cooking fabulous food and making us very comfortable). The senior dive-master, Andreas, was so knowledgeable about the islands that he could always find dive-able sites for all 10 dives over three days. And his ability to find interesting underwater critters was outstanding, as was his discipline re safety. We reckon we saw nearly 100 species of vertebrates, and many nudibranchs, octopus, seahorse, as well as stunning soft and hard corals and gorgonians. Thanks, Sea Fun!

Amazing!!!!! My wife and I have just returned from our honeymoon in Phuket, where we were fortunate enough to discover Nick and his team at Sea Fun Divers. My wife has always enjoyed snorkelling and was keen to undertake a full on scuba experience. Having not been a fan of snorkelling, I was less enthused but was persuaded initially by the instructor, Andre's, professionalism and great sense of humour during the free scuba try at our hotel 'Le Meridien'. Nick, the manager, talked us through the various options & answered our questions, refreshingly without any hard sell. After discussion with my wife, we chose to do a four day course and get our PADI open water licence. It was one of the best things I have ever done, and it was all down the team, facilities and training we received. We were keen to start as soon as possible & Nick was brilliant at accommodating us- flexibly arranging the training & dive days to fit around other things we wanted to do. He was also great in the classroom, making sure we had fully grasped the necessary points before we started in the water. Our dive instructor Jane was incredible, she has the patience of a saint, which was needed with me as a student! And she searched out a good variety of 'hard to spot' marine life for us to see :-) The whole experience was so fabulous that we decided to do an additional day of diving with Jane at the end of completing our qualification, bringing us to a total of 7 dives, including a wreck.

The boat was clean, organised & we were well looked after by crew & instructors alike. The refreshments were well above the standard of other trips with a plentiful supply of sandwiches & croissants for breakfast, a delicious Thai buffet & fruit for lunch & a selection of soft drinks. There was always plenty & enough available to snack through the afternoon too! We were also in good company with the other divers we met on the boat each day- a great bunch of people from across the world. The old adage in life is that people make a place, well this is most certainly the case here.

Cannot thank everyone at Sea Fun Divers enough for the amazing experience we had. It made our honeymoon the most memorable holiday & we will definitely be diving with you again :-)
P.s; it is well worth investing in one of David's videographing masterpieces - fabulous memories

The entire crew at sea fun is friendly and helpful, apart from Nick who is in the shop and answers the phone. Unfortunately I have come across him twice already and both times were a complete disappointment. Unfriendly, rude and simply not someone you would want to see representing a dive centre.
This is just an opinion, take it or leave it .

I have waited for few days before reply to Your review, I was quiet sure that Triadvisor would remove it. However didn't happen.

I believe that Tripadvisor has been created to give personal opinions about facilities, hotels, attractions and whatever is part of an holiday, not to make a personal attack to a specif person that you barely know and met just twice ion your life.

I'm sure your review violate the guidelines referring to some one using is personal name and being him the only Nick in charge of Sea Fun Diver dive center at Le Meridien, you could simply say that liked part of the service, thank you for using it, but not the customer service at the office.

Even better would be to address the problem to me directly, just enough call our hotline or send an email.
