I was diving for my first time when I was staying in Koh Phi Phi. The instructor Johanna showed me the way in a very calm, entustiactic and proffessional way. That plus the Hippo crew and the surroundings made my first dive experience fantastic!

I begun my travels with no intention of diving, it is an experience that has now opened up a complete new world to me. I actually dived with another school on phi phi and found hippos to be far more approachable and accommodating. Hippo divers was a well run organisation, the staff were professional and friendly.

I completed my open water, advanced course and rescue diver with them and found the instructors to be both enthusiastic and knowledgeable.The class room was air conditioned so you can learn in comfort, with instructors that have a vast amount of experience.

I saw a plethora of sea life and was astounded by the under water world. Can't wait to go back.

Great diving with fun people. Professional outfit, equipment is in very good condition and the boat had a good diving deck so divers had plenty of space. Recommend using these guys to dive with when you are on Phi Phi.

Did two fun dives at hippo divers this winter. Really friendly staff and amazing diving. Got to see sharks and turtles. Really enjoyed diving with them and I would do it again if I ever go back.

I just finished a 5 week adventure trip through Thailand and Cambodia.
And from all the the things I did and saw, doing my PADI o.w.d was by far the best decision of the trip!
Hippo Divers are awesome, professional and extremely nice staff. The best thing about the whole thing though (apart from diving with turtles and the cast of Nemo) was my lovely teacher, KATY. So sweet, funny and professional, she even made the theory (indoor study) fun AND she even let me take a shower at her place before my boat/bus left the last day!! So in just 3 days I got my PADI license and a new friend, so win-win for me! :)
