I've just finished my Open Water course at New Way, it was a wonderful experience. I had some trouble breathing and clearing my mask at first but my instructor, Joel, was very patient and understanding and reassured me. I gained so much confidence that I even joined up for an extra day where we did a Deep Adventure and Night Adventure dive!

With the help of the awesome instructors at New Wave, I completed my open water diving course and became PADI certified. After an amazing three days, we were given a special opportunity (and price) to do a deep dive and night dive at Chumpon, one of the best diving sites in Koh Tao.

Besides having an amazing time diving, I felt like part of a small family as the dive masters and instructors would hang out at the dive shop after hours with the students. Our instructor Dominik was great. He made us feel very comfortable and was very thorough in his instructions so we always knew what to do underwater. After getting certified, he brought our group and a few other friends to the coolest viewpoint in Koh Tao to watch the sunset. I didn't feel like just a customer at New Wave and that made my first time learning how to dive so much more fun.

Having never dived before, the atmosphere at New Way Diving immediately felt comfortable and safe for a novice diver like myself. The whole staff was very welcoming and friendly, as well as very professional. Manager Lorne was very flexible and a funny guy, clearly works very hard to offer his customers the best. My instructor Joshua was patient and calm, perfect for teaching someone new, who has no previous experience in diving, he really knew what he was doing and provided me with a great base for future diving experiences. The rest of the staff was also always willing to help and give advice. I would definitely recommend New Way Diving to anyone who is interested in starting or continuing their diving. Great people, great experience!
