We went on diving day trip with Andaman Ocean Safaris, we were given an unforgettable memory that had both professionalism and experience... which really came in handy as we hadnt dived in some years so we were also recommended to take a refresher course

David and his team really delivered a fantastic service and we would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone wanting a great day of diving

“Amazing Service!”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

I have to say up front that we did not dive with this company. We arrived to Phuket on Dec. 31st. I called Andaman Ocean Safaris on the morning of Jan. 1 EARLY to see if we could book a dive instructor to do the open water dives for my son. He was trying to get PADI certified and required his 4 open water dives. David, the man who answered his phone worked diligently to arrange for another dive company in Phuket (Sea Fun Divers - also great) to accommodate my son. It was a couple of hours before this was all arranged but I have to say... this man did not have to work so hard on our behalf. He went above and beyond which tells me something about the integrity of this dive center. If I ever return, I will call David at Andaman Ocean Safaris to set up dives!

“Andaman Ocean Safaris - Chalong, Phuket - AWESOME!!”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

After the Typhoon in the Philippines caused us to cancel our dive trip to Puerto Galera I contacted David at Andaman Ocean Safaris in Phuket to see if they could accommodate (last min) 2 people for an Open Water PADI dive course. David was fantastic and in 30-40Mins had organized a 3 Day tailor made private dive course for us as well as a hotel reservation (Pier42 Hotel). He advised us on the best & cheapest option for booking flights & his info was spot on. He had his driver waiting for us at the airport the next morning (0430am) and took us straight to their newly constructed dive center, which is Fantastic & Modern. They literally opened their doors for us in order to accommodate our tight schedule.

The course was completed in 3 days and was excellent and efficient. Our dive instructor Alwin was great and also very accommodating and patient as we plugged away at all the required course material. The 2nd & 3rd days of the course were out on their boat which is quite large and offers 3 levels which all have plenty of space. The boat is immaculate and in great condition and is great to be out on. Breakfast, lunch & afternoon snacks on the boat are great and lunch is especially tasty with the Thai dishes served. All staff were friendly, polite and most importantly safety conscious. The schedule is well planned & efficient and allows you to have 2 dives completed and back to Chalong pier by 3pm. This is fantastic planning from Andaman Ocean Safaris as it left us half the afternoon to still do stuff (or nap).

After finishing the Dive course we had a free day in Phuket to relax and do some tourist things. David took the time & put together his recommendations for some of his picks of "must do" things in Phuket. We took on Davids recommendations and really enjoyed our last day out in Phuket.

Overall a Fantastic experience that saved our dive trip and we can't wait to be back. Book with Andaman and you will not have to worry about anything.

Thanks again for everything David.

A great day out and superbly arranged. Thanks to David and his team for organising the trip. Lunch onboard was also tasty. The areas were well chosen and the training was top notch. Much appreciated and thanks again for a beautiful day out. Oh yes, the guide on the boat was entertaining and with some great stories. Will highly recommend to all.
