They say scuba diving is addictive... Scuba Junction takes it to a whole new level - I came in April and I'm still here! The staff are a family; supportive, funny and kind. You will find yourself adopted so don't bother buying a return flight - you won't want to leave. So what made me choose SJ for my rescue course, my master divers course, my O2 provider course AND my dive control specialist course (assistant instructor)??? I emailed tonnes of dive shops on the island; the owner of SJ Nat was the only one to give me personalised emails answering all of my questions - no copying and pasting info from a website that I've already read. The equipment is top quality and they look after it well. If you want to do your dive master training, you don't have to have your own dive computer like some schools. They have computers you can use for free. All the staff; past and present are amazing. I've learnt a lot from them in my time here. They are all highly knowledgeable about diving, passionate about the ocean and create well trained, confident divers. To all the instructors and dive masters that helped get me to where I am today I can't thank you enough. I love you guys! xxx

I was completely new to diving, and the staff at Scuba Junction taught me how to be a smart diver. In addition to learning a lot, the teams that took us out for dive days were really fun! You can tell the staff loves diving, and the group sizes were small which was nice. The most basic stay provided is alright, all you need considering you're never really in the room. I would definitely recommend this dive school!

I recently completed my advanced open water course at Scuba Junction in Koh Tao, Thailand. I found SJ to have a great reputation on the island and throughout Thailand. The staff there are extremely proffessional and friendly and I would definately reccommend Koh Tao to anyone that wants to learn how to dive or just wants to have a fun dive with great reef life. I was instructed by a guy called Cam who was a mate from NZ. Him and alot of the staff not only instructed us during the day but also took us out and hosted us with the amazing nightlife Koh Tao has to offer. Cam set the course at the perfect pace and taught us not only about the technical aspects of the course but also showed heaps knowledge in regards to the local marine life and fun facts. Would reccommend this joint to anyone whos keen. Diving Koh Tao with SJ was definately the highlight of my trip. Just can't wait until I plan the next dive trip back there.

I recently completed my open water course at Scuba Junction and found it to be the perfect balance between relaxed and professional with a really friendly staff. I couldn't speak highly enough of our instructors, Charlie and Erin, they were very good teachers and great for a laugh and a beer. They did the course at the perfect pace and were so helpful at every stage, I'm not really sure what else you'd want from your instructors.

My only regret is that we had already booked to leave nearly immediately after the course and didn't have time to do the advanced course with the same people. It was a excellent way of meeting people, with Koh Tao being a great place to travel to especially if you like doing things. I would recommended to anyone coming to do their open water to allow for an extra two days to do their advance course, even if you don't end up doing it Sairee beach is such a great location anyway. it was certainly the highlight of our trip.

I came to Koh Tao with the intention of diving and found the good reviews for Scuba Junction on TripAdvisor. I found the Dive Leaders at Scuba Junction to be very fun to work but also very professional with great attention to safety. My girlfriend, April, received her open water cert. and I did the dive tune-up since I had not been diving since 2008. I also did a few fun dives and had the privilege of diving with a whale shark! April and I had a blast and we are already planning on coming back next year.
