With roots going back to 1989, P.P. Aquanauts Scuba is one of the first purpose-built dive centers on Phi Phi. With a unique non-commercial but professional style, both fun and safety are maximized. All dives are planned and supervised to strict PADI standards, which are recognized worldwide. Personal attention and professional care are corner-stones of the Aquanauts family. Customized trips, night dives and drinks on the breezy porch are available every day of the year.

I can't speak highly enough of this lot.

My friend and I took the half day of diving for people without a license. Joe from the staff was super friendly and explained everything in detail. All the clubs have the same price. The best thing about this club is that they limit the group size to 2 people, so you get a great experience with the instructor and... More

P P aquanauts were recommended to us by a good friend back home (Australia) who spent 1 year on the island living and diving. We arrived without any expectations and straight away Joe (a ripped shirtless surfer diving guru) greeted us with a friendly 'not pushy' demeanor. We spent about 1 hour going over the diving options and what was... More

While I am certified diver, because I only get a chance to dive on vacation, safety is my number one concern so I did my research online before going on my trip. Based on the reviews on Tripadvisor, I decided on Aquanauts. Hugo was always responsive via emails when I contacted them in advance of my trip. Once I arrived... More

Scuba Diving was definitely on my list of 'things I never want to do in my life'. Seriously. But thanks to Joe's genuine and convincing speech about a once in a lifetime opportunity to dive in beautiful Phi Phi ( that coupled with the fact that he was very good looking and seemed sincere about not letting me drown or...

Me and a friend dived here earlier in the year - the staff were super friendly and the dives were amazing. The equipment was in good condition and you got fed on the dive, not bad food!!! A really cool experience.

We encountered this place by chance. We had just got off the boat, and didn't really know where to go so we wandered. A guy outside this shop saw our perplexity and offered some tips on where to stay. He was helpful and nice and he let us keep our bags in the shop while we went out to hotel... More

I stayed on Phi Phi Island in early August 2012 for three days.
