Again fantastic expierience. Will definately come again!
Revisited Paradise Diving Asia and crew again in March 2020 as also in the years before. This is always the last stop in our vacation in Thailand after also diving in other spots with different diving companies.
Again diving in Nai Yang was the highlight of our trip.
- superb professional and friendly crew
- good dive sites (even when diving here for the 5th time I always see something new)
- gear is very well taken care of wheather it is your own or the companies
My son took the nitrox course so we could dive with nitrox, but you can take all SSI courses as far as I know.
We also took an awesome night dive with a marine biologist with uv-equipment.
As we did photographs and videos the relaxed atmosphere and cool dive guides helped a lot.

With a friend who had not dived for several years they took especial care and helped him to refreshen his skills.
The dive sites atound Nai Yang are reachable in around 30 Minutes with their own speedboat so you will spend half a day for two dives instead of a full day the you normally would with other sites.
Highly recommended for families or couples where not everybody is diving as they also offer sties where you can dive and snorkel at the same time. As always we felt very safe and well cared for.

So pleased we returned - the dive sites have really improved.
Dec 2019
We have dived here many times over the years, with various dive operations. Sea Bees (as they are known locally) are by far the best by any measure - staff, skill level, dive boat and they know how to make diving fun.
The diving at Koh Waeo is now much improved, the marine life is now returning to its former beauty and the coral is growing again. We saw great shoals of colourful fish on every dive, blue spotted rays, cuttlefish and the occasional turtle too.
Boat diving is only as good as the people you dive with. The everpresent American couple who even pop up in Wat's Bar in the evenings are a lot of fun. They have some great local doveing tales. Until we did the wreck dive on the Tin Lizzy we never realised what a navigation expert Tiin was. I now understand why locally they refer to this dive site as the Tiin Mine. We can't forget Michael (the Defender) - who keeps everything at peak efficiency so there is no hanging around the boat always leaves on time. His English is so good we couldn't believe he was German, until we remembered the efficiency. All the other staff too, Sandra and Jashin, the weird Swiss guy all make this a very special dive operation which is highly recommended. See you all again in February.

Happy diver again
I can’t recommend these guys enough. I’d not been diving since 2011 so the lovely Tiin took me under her wing with a refresher and then we headed out for a half day dive in the week. Tiin was amazing at putting me at ease again in the water and made the whole experience fun. I can’t thank her enough! She was also my buddy on the dive and I was totally blow away by the amount of sea life. I saw more marine life than I bargained for. It’s a must see! The day was so well organised and they even arranged for the taxi to collect me in the morning. There wasn’t too many people on our boat either which was ace and had plenty of space to chill between dives. I can honestly go on and on about how great these guys are. If you into diving no matter what level then give these guys a shout. I’m already planning going back next year and will definitely be diving with these guys again. Keep up the good work and see you soon Paradise ✌🏼🐟❤️

From the moment we arrived I was very impressed with Tiin & Michael and their team. They were all incredibly friendly & professional.I was nervous as I was due to complete my Open Water Diving tests with my UK instructor, but they gave me so much confidence that I passed! Tiin even gave me a certificate for completing 10 dives! Highly recommend them. Thank you 😘

An Awesome Experience
After an abstinence of 18 years from diving, Tiin and Michael made me very welcome at the Nai Yang office. Tiin’s instruction was very professional and I felt at ease under her instruction.
I then went on the 2 dive trip to Racha Yai with dive instructor Jaan who was a very experienced diver and made sure my experience both above and below the surface was awesome. This company ensures customers a great experience while maintaining a high level of safety. I would highly recommend them.

Third time with See Bees Diving Nai Yang (PDA)
Mar 2019 • Couples
Third visit to this dive center ond the premises of the "Slate" Hotel and again it was perfect. With Tin and Michael running the dive School it is a bit like comming home, very friendly and relaxed atmosphere. They were instantly able to fix a malfunction of my BCD having the correct spare parts as well as providing me with some additional needed equipment. The dive instructors/guides are knowledgeable and know there dive sites thus you get very save and relaxed diving that will also give you time for photographs or videos. Very flexible when making diving arangements - very customer orientated English and German spoken. This consistent quality will have me comming back again with my family. Thanks a lot!

So pleased we returned.
Nov 2018 • Couples
Our travels took us back to Nai Yang again, there is something special about this place. Having previously dived with other operators in this area it is always a pleasure to return to Paradise Diving, note they are also known as Sea Bees Diving. There are other inferior dive operations in Nai Yang which should be avoided.
As we usually stay at the Dewa hotel it was a welcome surprise to see they now have a brand new dive shop located at the front of the hotel, this is very convenient if you are staying at this end of the beach. The main dive shop is still located in the Slate hotel (by the back entrance).
This is a very slick operation operating two dive boats, so depending on your skill level you will dive with people of a similar dive level - so everything is nice and comfortable. We were lucky to be able to dive with the American husband and wife instructors - their local dive site knowledge is superb. The two owners are a lot of fun and we look forward to diving with Tiin when we next return as she is the local wreck expert.
See Bees are a fun company to dive with and often arrange evening meals or bar meet ups where most people diving debrief and share dive stories and knowledge. We look forward to returning next year.

Dear Sparky, Thanks a lot for your review! It was a great pleasure for us to have you with us again! The time with you is always too short... and so much fun! For the next year I would be highly delighted to join you diving again... Wreck diving with Tiin... always worth a dive! Our whole crew wishes you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year! Sea you soon again! Yours, Michael, Tiin and our amazing crew

Having spent twice my holidays in Phuket (April 2016 and April 2017), I wanted to overcome my fear of diving... And this would not have been possible without Tiin and Michael ! Thank you so much for teaching, reassuring, sharing with (lots of) patience and good techniques :-)
Very proud and happy with my diving certification !
