“Underwhelming, pushy and a lax attitude to safety.”

Owner description: The closest diving base to the most popular dive sites of the Andaman Sea: Shark Point, Anemone Reef, King Cruiser Wreck and Koh Doc Mai. Longtailboat trips from Koh Yao Yai.
Reviewed November 7, 2013

We booked to go diving but once out in the water the instructor had to be persuaded to take us on a proper dive, rather than the two "practice" dives of a couple of metres which he initially offered. The sites were pretty uninspired for Thailand - lots of dead coral. What was really worrying was their attitude towards safety. The boat started it's propellers and began moving on four occasions when people were snorkelling in the water around the boat. This could have resulted in a horrendous accident. The boat also left the snorkellers stranded in the water whilst it went to pick up another diver (who had been left alone by one of the dive instructors). The owner of the business was also really pushy, telling the owner of our hotel that we'd booked to go on a boat trip the next day when we plainly had not. Not a good experience at all.

My wife and I dove here on Jan 18, 2013. We were guided by Pavel (Paul). As well as leading us on the dive, Pavel also took plenty of pictures and burned them to a CD for us afterwards. We cruised down to Koh Phi Phi and did 1 dive, stopped off at the famous Phi Phi island where Leonardo killed sharks in the Beach, before doing our 2nd dive. Afterwards we stopped off at Phi Phi Don which was a nice stopover as we had not planned to make it there on this trip.

Overall, great folks, nice dives and we had a great time.
