I worked with Scuba Cat for months to arrange for the 3-day liveaboard. Being a solo diver, I had to wait for others to sign up. We were going to Hin Daeng and Hin Muang. I was excited to do another liveaboard. The problems started once I paid in full. Daniel L had been working with me but once I... More

My last experience with Scuba Cat was a disaster, I will advise to do not trust on the new management since its way to proceed is not transparent to customers, what I consider is dishonest and different the way used to be. I used to book with them a few years ago, however, it seems that a change on management... More

It is so sad to see what's happened to Scubacat since the previous owner Sara Kench and Debbie Woods left. They were great and built up a great brand and customer loyalty. I dived with Scubacat since 2003 but won't go back now under new ownership. Customer service is dreadful, they don't answer any emails and just don't seem to... More

Scuba Cat is a smaller establishment than many other dive shops, and they have an older and smaller boat -- but they take good care of you, and they boast one of the best cooks in the business.

Booked a 3 dive day trip as a couple to Raya islands. Great group of professional people. The boat wasn't as new as some others but was a good steady ride and heaps of room for everyone to move about. Food on the boat was terrific (love the pumpkin soup). The equipment was good and clean, no problems at all.... More

I was there for vacations! Simply amazing! The staff very gentle and helpful! The places we went for diving and snorkeling were very beautiful! Clean water with a lot of colourful fishes to see! Also the food on the boat, made by thai people (breakfast, lunch and fruits) was simply delicious!!!
