What a wonderful diving center! Me and my buddy dived three days with Vincent and it was the best service ever! They know the best places to go and do everything to make your trip as good as possible.

After asking around in Patong and Chalong, my friend chose them to take a PADI Open Water course because they were very flexible on starting dates. We only had 4 days in Phuket and we popped in the shop without previous booking, and still she was able to start the next day, with a private instructor who she was very satisfied with. Unlike other shops we asked, apart from the standard priced option to do the course on the boat, they also offer a considerably cheaper option from the beach, which my friend opted for.

Also, I booked a day trip with them and was very satisfied with the service. The gear is in good condition and they go thru all the cert checks before diving. The groups are small (2 divers with one guide, who was an instructor). They were also very helpful when we needed information to book tickets to move on from Phuket the next day -we were able to leave the next day early in the morning after we asked them. All in all, great service.

As ex-pats living in Thailand for almost 5 years, my husband and I have an opportunity to go to Phuket diving about once or maybe twice a year. Getting ready to move on to our next location, we thought we would go "one last time" for a long weekend.
We've been using another company but I wanted to try a new shop this time and INCREDIBLY happy we did. From the moment I started lining up the trip by email, Kiwi Diver was very professional and helpful. Quick to answer emails and it was great to be able to have a real conversation with Vincent - not just the well-thought-out questions by me, answered in a way that you're not sure they ever understood the question at all.
So the diving - we finally got to see seahorses after coming all these times. And the rest of the diving (with Adam as our guide) was as good as it gets around this area.
We were so impressed by the operation, their prices and their Facebook page, we decided to have a second "one last time" trip. This time we went beach diving at Kata Beach while getting Nitrox certified. Keep in mind beach diving you don't see all the colorful coral and the "big stuff" but we still saw some pretty cool little stuff including more seahorses and pipefish.
Vincent is an EXCELLENT instructor and for the day dives we stayed out diving about 90 minutes for each. We did a night dive also and I had to force "the boys" to come in. It's not very often you see a divemaster pout because you're ready to get out of the water, right?
How many pictures can you take of a frogfish?
HIGHLY RECOMMEND this company, and if possible we may take another "last trip" before we leave this beautiful country of Thailand...

I did some fun diving, training and booked a liveaboard through Kiwidivers on a recent trip to Phuket and had a great time with them. From prompt responses to emails during the initial enquiry and booking all the way through.

I had Vincent as an Instructor/guide for the bulk of m dives out of Phuket. He is a fountain of knowledge on the diving around Phuket having been there so long but he still gets excited and passionate about all the dives and it’s possible to do a whole dive from a day trip boat with Vincent without seeing another diver. I certainly will be back.

Many people think its boring to go beach diving around Phuket, but we had a very great experience to say otherwise. Vincent ( Our Instructor) brought us for a whole day of fun and educational dives, even with our years of diving experience. We will definately return to Kiwi Divers again for our next dive adventure.
Thanks again Vincent. Good job.
