My friends and I are beginners in diving, but Simon and Carsten were always there to ensure our safety and keep us very calm in the water. I felt very comfortable knowing that they were very professional in their task as dive-masters and guides for us. I was also very delighted that Aloha Diving provided complimentary photo-taking while my friend and I were in the water, which was a very big plus for us, saving us from the hassle since we don't own a gopro. Simon would also edit photos before sending it to us which it turns out amazing!

Simon and Carsten were easily the nicest and sociable people around. I would not hesitate returning with them again if I am back at Phuket.

From the start (email contact in advance of visit) Alice and Simon were spot on and very helpful. Upon meeting them at their place of business in Phuket we were met with lots of smiles and friendly chat as well as discussion ref our day (3 dive beginners).
The day itself was excellent and it was an experience to go be part of the loading of the dive boats at Chalong Pier with a good overview by our Dive Instructor of how it all works prior to and whilst on the dive boat. (Thanks Tony).
The 3 dives were very rewarding with plenty to see. The drift dive was a new challenge and unnerving but hugely but rewarding.

Definitely would use Aloha Diving again and plan to with a proposed return trip next year with the kids.

Keep up the great customer service Alice & Simon

I was very surprised to hear the dives could be guided in French, English, German and my native tongue, Dutch! And be sure to check out the dive container if you are new to the sport. Very safe and easy introduction.

With a group of friends we went to a boat trip in Kho pi pi island, and Franck was our dive master! We had an amazing experience, Franck managed to take us to explore beautiful and unique spots underwater; with a caring dive master the diving experience can change completely (in a very good way), especially for me who just took the padi open water.

So I highly recommend Franck!
