We have recently returned back to work after spending 6 weeks doing our Divemaster program with Wicked Diving. Prior to going we spent several months looking at courses with dive businesses literally all over the world. We were drawn to Wicked by prior reviews as well as the excellent customer service offered by one of the owners of the business, Koen.
What can we say? The operation was superb. The leader of the divemaster program is a brilliant diver (Diego) and takes time to teach each student thoroughly and professionally. Diego is extremely patient and without doubt is one of the best instructors we have ever worked with. The entire program is well thought out, detailed and really emphasises a few key things: 1. Safety. 2. The environment and 3. Professional instruction. So many dive businesses pay little or no attention to simple things like air consumption, bottom time, surface interval time, diver hydration, no touching of marine life, reefs etc. We were so pleased to see Wicked was not one of them! They breathe what the say they deliver. So refreshing.
These guys give back to the local community, they care about our environment and we think they teach people to become not only better divers, but also more aware about our footprint. Each instructor we worked with was professional and offered input or advice along the way. Each of the 3 included liveaboards we did ran like clockwork and delivered beyond our expectations.
We can't recommend Wicked highly enough for anyone considering doing a serious Divemaster program. Without doubt this course is not the shortest or the easiest to get through. But at the end of the day this program would be very hard to beat and to our mind must set the standard for other dive businesses to follow.
If you are a leisure diver or a serious diver wanting to dive witha truly eco friendly and professional outfit in Thailand, look no further than the crew at Wicked Diving. To Paul, Koen, Diego and the rest of the team, keep up the superb job!!!!
