Been there, done that. I made my Open Water certificate there. My instructor Niko (that south african, belgian, german guy) was really great. For several reasons: a) He had a lot of experience, so he knew what he did and knew what to change. b) it was the right mixture of chill and "you owe me a beer, buddy. In... More

Did my Open Water and Advanced at Roctupus plus a few fun dives. Instructor Niko was fantastic and the staff makes you feel like your a part of the Roctupus family. When taking at course at Roctupus you also get the benefit of using a huge pool with a sun deck right by Sairee beach. Thank you so much Roctupus... More

I did my open water license with Roctopus after a friend recommended them to me. I had never been diving before and was excited to go for the first time. The course is well structured and covers a lot of theory which is good to know. If you don't do your reading assignments it will be hard to pass the... More

We got our open water here and had a great experience. Our instructor Joe was very attentive and patient with us newbies! The dive sites, amount of dives, and cost were spot on, great value. By far the best part though was the people that work there, they make you feel part of their family!

After going round a few dive companies on the island we decided to do our open water course through Roctopus. It was awesome. Everything ran smoothly, there was a good balance between learning and having a laugh. Shout out to Jack, was a quality instructor and very helpful !!

I had never been scuba diving before and honestly I was a little bit nervous about it! From the moment I walked in the shop, the staff was incredible. They were joking with us and with each other and it made us feel like we were all friends! Desa was our instructor and was amazing!! She was so patient with... More

Roctopus was a great dive center to get started with! I was really excited and a little nervous to learn how to dive. From the beginning the staff was very informative and had a good vibe. We signed up and got matched with Joe H.-- he was awesome! He maintained the serious nature of diving safety while also keeping it... More

Having tried scuba once before , I approached formal training for the open diving course with a lot of excitement. Koh Tao is beautiful, and unfortunately bustling with a lots of tourists but with calm waters that are suited for learning. Roctopus was full of positive energy, bustling with people who loved diving! Our instructor, Desa is an excellent teacher... More

I chose to dive with Roctopus following a recommendation from a friend who worked for them in the recent past. They have many strengths as a dive centre, but there were a few negatives that led me to do the remainder of my diving with a different dive school (with whom I was very pleased with). First, the POSITIVES: 1.... More
