I went scuba diving (fun dive) with Poseidon near Phi Phi island. It was a nice relaxing and fun experience.

When I look for a dive school there are a few things that I think are very important. Well trained staff that care about safety. Properly functioning, well maintained dive gear. Furthermore a school that operates in small groups. Diving only a few divers (1-4) per instructor.

Poseidon did great on all aspects. The dive master gave a decent and extended briefing before each dive. Also did he check the dive equipment after I set it up, which gave me a comfortable reassured feeling. BCD's, regulators etc were rather new and also well looked after by the dive staff. There was certainly personal attention for each diver; questions were answered, advice was given.

The dive center has their own boat that will bring you to the several dive sites near Phi Phi in approximately 2 hours. On the boat you will find 2 toilets, fresh water shower, sitting area lower deck and upper deck. Dives will start directly of the boat. Drinks like coffee and tea several kind of softdrinks (cans) are included in the price. As well as some fresh local fruits. In the afternoon you will be served a simple thai style meal. The boat will be back around 18:00. Boat staff was friendly and helpful.

One point that I didn't like that much was the fact that both dive tanks and divers are transported in the back of a small minifan. Because of this there was very little space for sitting comfortably. But most of all those aluminium tanks can cause nasty accidents to passengers in case of an emergency stop. A not so safe situation, which in my opinion should be improved!

We dived with Dan over a couple of days and loved it. Dan went through where we were going, what the water currents where doing and what wild life to look out for. It was relaxed, easy going and saw so much. Thanks, we can't wait to get back there to dive again with you guys.
