“Excellent diving company”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2009

I arranged for my son to complete his Open Water Course at Dive The World, whilst I did some fun dives with him as an already-qualified diver. Dive The World is situated 30 metres from the beach at the bottom of Soi Hat Patong street, towards the northern end of Patong Beach. We stayed at the Aspery Hotel during our visit, which is a good option as it's only 100 metres away from the centre.

They charged a competitive rate, made great value by the fact that they give private tuition and 5 dives for about the same price as other dive centres charge for group classes and 4 dives. My son got really sun burnt just before his course was due to start so we had to rearrange the schedule. This was all taken care of for no extra charge.

We also got to choose which dive sites we wanted to visit. We did the dives in low season. Although the visibility wasn't terrific, it was still good enough, especially at Shark Point which is a site of soft coral pinnacles with cuttlefish and leopard sharks. Overall, a good fun experience in safe hands.
