Just been diving for the second time with Phi Phi Barakuda and as expected was amazing. Very professional company but also know how to make it fun without the expense of your safety. The boats they have are not cramped at all in good condition and good cover for getting out of the sun if you need to. Our dive instructor was Cole and cant praise this guy enough. Just and absolute pleasure to be around and made doing our advanced water diving course just another part of an amazing holiday. Big thank you to you Cole and hope we get to meet you again sometime in the future whether diving or not. All the other staff here are great too and got to mention Paulina and Travis as just great people to be around. Thanks again to Barakuda and Cole, if you want to go diving on Phi Phi then these are the people to see, just come off the Ton Sai pier and turn right and only about 2 mins walk and you will see it on your left. New bar upstairs to which you cannot fault for relaxing and the prices are the best too.

Thanks again and hope to see you all again soon.

Andy found my sunglasses in Maya Bay! He is a HERO!

Andy and the entire staff at Barrakuda Dive Koh Phi Phi is amazing! I had full support of everyone on the boat when looking for a pair of perscription sunglasses I had lost in Maya Bay not 1 but 2 days prior to our dive adventrue! We set out with high hopes (well I had high hopes but all the staff on the boat knew it was slim to none chances we would recover them) We had a 20 minute window and when the signal to go up was given I was sad....until Andy turned the corner with my sunnies in his hands!

Thanks you Barrakuda....and I will be back :)

Phi Phi Barakuda- We loved our diving experience with Phi Phi Barakuda. The staff is all very friendly and amongst them, they can speak about 10 languages. We were first time divers and felt very comfortable the whole time.

I'd never tried diving before yesterday. To be honest, I've had lots of opportunities, but had always avoided it due to that little (or big) inner fear. My partner had been diving a few times and is just a natural at everything really (annoyingly sometimes :o) We walked past one of the many dive shops on Thailand's Koh Phi Phi and heard the welcoming accent of another Aussie.

After dinner we decided we would go back and see if we could go snorkelling the following day. When we got to the shop my partner immediately started a conversation about diving and from that point on I was intrigued. We signed up to head out the following morning for what would be one of the most amazing experiences of my life so far.

Andy was the divemaster that took us out, and boy did I test his patience! I develloped many unrealistic fears, from not being able to breath properly, to my mask falling off my face suddenly and without reason. Each time I presented Andy with another challenging issue he was quick to suggest a solution and met my concerns with nothing but calming and caring professionalism.

After a few shorter than expected attempts we finally ironed out most of the creases and got to 12 metres for 45 mins and hung out with 5 or 6 turtles feeding on various types of corals!!! A completely and utterly mindblowing experience... My partner being more experienced, also said it was by far the most phenomenal dive he had been on yet.

So if your a fence sitter like I was for so many years do yourself a favour and go down and see Andy for an unbeatable experience with an awesome guy to boot. I walked away feeling sensational and I just couldn't have kept it together without such a cool headed and experienced instructor! Thank you for lending us your knowledge Andy, you are a total legend!
