Phoenix is an award winning 5 star dive school that offers both SSI & PADI courses from beginner to instructor. We are located in the heart of Koh Tao’s main backpacker beach, Sairee. This gives us one of the best locations on the entire island and we are lucky enough to have a beachfront dive school, two big dive boats, and a resort with its own dive pool.

We have been certifying divers since 2003 making us one of the first dive schools on sunny Koh Tao. Our team of instructors headed by the most experienced SSI instructor in the world and by one of the most prestigious instructor trainers ensures you will always have a fun and safe experience.

Our small group sizes, ability to teach in a variety of languages and well maintained equipment are just a few of the many reasons why we are more than just a dive school. Come and join the Phoenix family!

Myself and my girlfriend did our Open Water Diving course here over 4 days including accomodation and breakfast. To put it simply, it was incredible. Despite being one of the cheapest options on the island, the quality does not suffer. The location, equipment and instruction is top notch. The instructors are very friendly and will spend extra time with you... More

These people are super fun and great at teaching diving. I have been diving for over a year and they adjusted the dives to my level, which was great. Make sure to inflate your BCDs and have a good time.

We went diving with Phoenix and did our advanced open water. We went to ko Thao because this should be an awesome place to dive, but we didn't have that experience. The visibility was not too good and we didn't see anything extra ordinary although we only have like 20 dives yet. The thing I liked most was the buoyancy... More

I was borderline terrified of the ocean and never considered diving prior to my time with Phoenix Divers. I signed up for the Open Water course on a whim, mostly to avoid 4 days of painful conversation. Honestly it's one of the best decisions I have ever made. Alex is an amazing instructor, he made me feel safe in the... More

When we first arrived we had no expectations of becoming completely obsessed with the activity. In short we ended up staying for the advanced course after completing our open water and completed 6 fun dives shortly after. We just couldn't stop diving and are horrifically sad we were forced to leave. Alex was our open water instructor and was extremely... More

Their passion for diving is contageous and I caught the bug. I felt safe on every dive with them - they teach very well and... More

Picked this place to get my open water because it cheap, but the course was top notch! Hugo was a great instructor, made us all feel welcome at Phoenix. Would definitely recommend this to anyone. Plus we got to see a whale shark on one of our training dives!!

I went to Phoenix for my Open Water course, and it was a fantastic experience. Just because they are the cheapest around does not mean they cut corners. Equipment and facilities were great. Rory was a patient, enthusiastic and genuine instructor. We had a group of 5 (all beginners) and all of us were confident in the water by the... More

The dives are all diverse and full of life and everyone on staff is so friendly and welcoming. We had a great time talking to and being around everyone. It's easy to have a place to... More
