I went diving for the first time over three weeks ago, and I'm still on cloud nine! It was unbelievable, and I can't recommend this company more. If you want a personalized, professional, beyond fun, safe and unforgettable experience, look no further! It was my second time on Koh Tao, and I know how difficult it can be finding a school, trying to pick the right fit. My boyfriend and I wanted something fun and social, but where we really were learning what we needed to know to become good divers. We went to some small schools, and everything felt very over sold, almost impersonal... we walked onto the campus of one of the massive schools and immediately felt like a number even before meeting with someone and knew it wasn't for us. We then walked into Sairee, and were casually greeted by Sarah, who was so friendly, relaxed and chilled out and just answered any questions we had, without any of the cheesy selling tactics... and well it sold itself!
They don't ever do a group larger than four people and we were so lucky we just had the two of us and our incredible dive instructor Rachel! The amount of money you would have to pay for the amount of attention and focus we got outside of Thailand would be astronomical!! But for only 9000 baht each, we got 2-1 attention, five nights accommodation and the time of our lives! If you are doing your open water, I highly recommend saving the money and do SSI. It just saves you the book really.
Rachel was honestly more than we could of ever asked for. The book work wasn't much, she made the material palatable, taking the physics we needed to understand for our safety and making the paper stuff fun and casual. She was so down to earth and chill, while at the same time so incredibly attentive to our safety. I never once felt anxious, as her teaching and demeanor just made you feel right at home in the water! Sairee has great equipment and their dedication to their divers' safety is obvious! And don't worry out of the water we had a great time, and partying after the certification definitely ensues... if that is what you're looking for!
Every dive was amazing... just beyond description. You feel as though you're in a dreamworld! Diving truly changes you! I can't wait to get my advanced, hopefully with Sairee... I don't think I could get a better experience anywhere else in the world! Thanks you Rachel, and thanks Sairee!
