Such a safe and fantastic company. Great organization, instructors and food. So glad we did our PADI Open Water dives with them. Nin was the best instructor!

We had heard about Lanta Diver from another instructor in Koh Tao so went straight there to book onto some fun dives (initially 2 but added a third on the day as they were so good!). The people in the shop were very friendly and the woman who sized us up and took our deposit was lovely.

They picked us up the morning of our dive from our hotel and we were introduced to our dive master/instructor and the two other people on our dive group (4 divers per instructor which was great). The company is very well organised and they had put my wife and I into a group with people of exactly the same experience which was brilliant. Our instructor, Carl, was also really friendly and had a good sense of humour. The boat was very clean, good toilets on board, and lots of snacks and drinks available. We met some other fab divers who were good fun to talk to.

Overall it was a brilliant day, with a good lunch, a good boat, and just great diving in clear water seeing lots of puffers, a sea snake and a turtle which was incredible. The only slight disappointment was that there was one photo the photographer took of me with a puffer which I really loved but was told you had to buy the disc for 1800 baht so it wasn't really worth it for one photo...however the photographer wasn't pushy in selling it and was a lovely guy. He was also great fun when diving as well.

Thank you!

We did a 1-day trip to Ko Ha, one of us dived & the others snorkelled. The staff in the shop & all those on the boat were really friendly & knowledgeable. There are loads of guides on the trips - in some groups there were only 2 divers per guide, so you get a lot of help & attention. The boat was very modern & comfortable. Highly recommended!

I took a rescue course here in November and my girlfriend went for her Open Water. Staff at the reception are lovely and very helpful. The school is owned by Swedes but the reception staff is English and they have very good instructors in lots of languages. They have three boats (two big very well equipped diving boats and a small speed boat) and will go out to at least two dive locations every day. This makes them the biggest diving school on the island. But dive training and fun diving is in small groups and you will not feel lost. The school has a very welcoming and personal atmosphere and the instructors are not just good but also good fun.

If you are going for a fun dive try to go to Hin Daeng, Hin Muang. Definitely worth a visit.
