My friends and I booked our PADI open water, and one PADI advanced open water (for my friend who already had his OW) courses with Impian having researched A LOT of dive schools.

As soon as we arrived on Koh Tao we popped in to ask for recommendations on where to eat. They were happy to help and suggested Zest which is a must visit for pretty much any meal!

Once we started the course Dave, our English instructor, was super friendly and made everyone feel at ease about heading into the water.

The groups were small with a maximum of 4 people to one instructor which meant you never felt nervous under the water if anything happened to go wrong.

All of the instructors were very friendly and helpful, even if they had never met you before. We all felt very welcome at the dive shop and on the boat.

I would definitely recommend diving with Impian. The way they taught the course made it fun and enjoyable, but you felt safe at every level of the dive. If there was ever a problem underwater there would be somebody on hand to help, and we made some good friends along the way.

Dave even helped me stop my scuba mask from steaming up, showing me how to treat it so I could use it whilst diving.

If I'm ever in Ko Tao again, I'll definitely be back to stick on my BCD!

I spent three days with the instructors of Impian Divers and had an amazing experience. Dan, Becky, and George were very professional.

All of my dives were very well planned, with a brief and debriefing given every time. The sites themselves were really enjoyable, and perfect for the content of my advanced dives. The equipment was well maintained and fitted a treat.

All in all it was a brilliant experience, and I couldn't recommend this dive school more highly. Also in regards to the limited negative feedback on trip advisor, I can't understand what you're on about. I had a blast!

Being a PADI instructor myself is was amazing to see the diving industry on Koh Tao. If you would like to learn to dive Koh Tao is the place to be! Impian Divers on Koh Tao is a dive centre with a mixed Dutch and international staff, all very professional and well organized. They always dive in small groups, up to 4, from their own boat. It’s only 50 meters from Impian Divers to the boat!
I’ve made fun dives during three days with dive masters Jeremy and Jesse. The relaxing atmosphere on the boat, the friendliness of owner Robert and all his staff, the fun we had and the excellent service given by everybody made it a great experience!
I can highly recommend Impian Divers!

We spent the day fun diving with the guys from Impian Divers and we totally recommend it to whoever is in Koh Tao and wants to explore the underwater world! Friendly staff, nice boat and professional dives. They make sure to organize little groups for every dove master so as to make everyone feel followed and secure. We even had a not asked discount at the end of the day because our group was too big (5divers)! What honesty and work ethic! Everybody speaks fluent English and their prices are exactly the same as all the diving centers in Koh Tao! If you are in Koh Tao and want to go diving, Impian is a sure bet!
