I would rate my experience as horrible because of many unexpected things that happened on the trip. so for any future person considering going on this boat here are some things to think about. 1.) Bring your own food. They say they provide breakfast but the options are quite limited and not super appetizing. Also, I found a chunk of... More

Hi there. Thank you for sharing what you felt went wrong. By the sound of it the main issue was the weather but I will address by numbers the same order as your points. 1. The food is as many people say very good quality and many do mention this. Ok I can say a bit of eggshell in the... More

Simon stood out among all the dive shops we spoke to while in Patong. He was so easy going and went above and beyond to try to get us accommodated. Overall it was a great experience and would recommend for diving or getting your certification done.

Equipment was in good shape, but no dive computer was included, only air tank gauge. The dive master we had, Vicki was knowledgeable and kept a good eye the group but let one "know if all diver" who seemed to think he was an expert wander ahead of the group and off to the side farther than he should have...

My brother and I decided it would be wonderful to get some diving experience in Phuket as we were leaving shortly and had never dived before. As usual we left things till the last minute. After approaching 3 dive shops about organising a trip for the following day we were told without a prior booking and at peak season, organising... More

I contacted Thailand Divers by e-mail on the morning of 16/12 about making a reservation on their 4-day/3-night 11-dive trip. Charlie Bird replied with their offering of a 4-day/4-night 15-dive trip aboard the Manta Queen 6 that was available on 18/12. Their e-mail response time averaged about 7 hours and at no point did they suggest or recommend for me... More

Hi there. I can understand your position but a liveaboard boat is similar to a hotel as in when the cabins are booked then the hotel is full. The weeks over Christmas are fully booked weeks in advance. The similans are so popular place to dive. People are booking the better trips from July for the peak weeks. So the... More

My girlfriend and I did the PADI open water license at Thailand Divers. There are a lot of nice islands around Phuket, where you can dive, train for your license and have fun observing the amazing underwater life.

We had a very good 2 days of diving over 2 days. Simon at the office was very helpful at guiding us to some good dive sites rather than following the crowds to Phi Phi or overpaying for a short day trip to the Similans. We dove with Cory and Sergey, who were both good and laid back and also... More

Hi there. Thanks for the review and your thoughts. As for me I will rather you have 2 good days diving than just book you on what ever tour comes along and waste money on a tour that is not going to be what you expect. As for Corey. Yes he has so much experience and has been teaching for... More

Terrible organization. I was picked up in the morning but it took hours before we could get on the boat. Waiting for all different groups to join on the boat. Eventually all diving gear was supposed to be on the boat, but there was no wetsuit for me. I wouldn't need it was the answer. I do need a wetsuit!... More
