Honestly, the dive guides and the people working there are very fun and helpful. I was there last December to get my certification and their lessons and teaching were clear. They have a pool near by in which we could practice our skills in 'comfort'. They never rushed me and assisted me in everything I needed. Their dive sites are... More

Had a great time with Bang Tao Scuba and Morgan as an instructor. Both dives were great and the food in between was excellent. Nice and relaxed.

Suntorn - or James Bond as the locals call him - epitomizes the best traits of an instructor and divemaster. He is patient, enthusiastic and diligent. As an experienced diver, I was impressed with the level of service he provided: pick up from my hotel, a clean shop with well-maintained equipment, and thorough dive briefings. My wife, a beginner diver,... More
