Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I spoke to several dive schools before I decided on Scuba Shack for my wreck diving course. So glad that I did. Absolutely professional set up 100%
I had Piotr as my guide and tutor and cannot praise him enough. One of the best instructors I have had to date.
Safe, considerate, understanding and excellent at imparting his wealth of experience. Excellent course and excellent instruction.

My friend and I did our Open Water Course with Scuba Shack and absolutely loved it. So much so, that we immediately followed it up with the Advanced Course. The team at Scuba Shack is super welcoming and our amazing instructor, Sasha, made us fall in love with diving. He made us feel safe, made sure we developed confidence in ourselves and most importantly, created a unique and very fun experience for us we’ll never forget.

Thank you so much to everyone, especially to Sasha, this definitely wasn’t our last time diving with Scuba Shack in Koh Tao.

MUCH LOVE,
Joya

The dive centre is very busy. The boat was packed, dive masters were friendly but we really felt like a number. The owner was friendly until he realized we weren't going to book a lot of dives. Staff at the centre were really friendly but everyone seemed a bit unfocussed and scattered.

We had an amazing first diving experience with Fun Dives and the Open Water Course. The fantastic team introduced us well and we felt in good hands of professionals it was great fun to dive with. The classes were thorough and the team had a close eye on the safety regulations. Very nice people (Daria, you are great !), and organization went well

An Outstanding Dive Experience with Fantastic Staff

I had an incredible diving experience, and I must say that the entire staff, with a special mention to Conner, was absolutely fantastic. The dive sites were excellent, and the value for money was truly exceptional.

What made this experience even more memorable was the fun we had after the dives. Hanging around with all the dive masters, enjoying a few beers, and watching the sun go down added an extra layer of enjoyment to the entire adventure. It was a fantastic and unforgettable time. Special thanks to Stefan.

I had an incredible experience diving with Scuba Shack. They are a very professional and fun outfit. I appreciate that they leave early in the morning to get the most of the sites. Scuba Shack's has great quality equipment. Moreover, the people are so lovely and welcoming! I would dive with them again if I returned to Koh Tao.
