Staff rather uninterested in helping and being there for the divers, sort of unfriendly attitude. After having taken Open Water Diver certificate a few days before with another diving school on Koh Samui, there was a huge gap noticeable in terms of professionalism, service mindset and getting the feeling of safety first

Passed my OWD together with Gert in a 1on1. He introduced me in getting familiar with diving. I always felt save and comfortable with him under and over water. Gert has perfect knowledge about the dive spots (was at Sail Rock and Koh Ma). So he could show me all kinds of fishes which were to be expected even if... More

We had a great time with the folks at Tropical Dive Club despite some cloudy weather. They are all very professional, including the helpers on the boat- from helping to load and set up gear to orienting you on the boat and changing gear inbetween dives, we felt well taken care of. Sophie led our dive at Sail Rock and... More

Myself and my boyfriend had our first ever experience with tropical dive club. The instructors are excellent and extremely professional. I was very nervous and our instructor put me at ease throughout the experience. We did two dives. Halfway through the second I panicked and the instructor had me up to the surface within seconds and calmed me down. He... More

This was our first scuba diving experience and we chose Tropical Dive Club based on other reviews. I was slightly nervous about scuba diving, but had emailed before we left the UK and the responses I got from Sophie at the club were helpful, reassuring and gave me the confidence to go for it. When we arrive on Koh Phangan,... More
