“First Time Diving”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

I went to scuba dive with my daughter for the first time. It was a brave choice for me, as I am not an adventurous person. We went straight in the sea, despite our no experience with diving. As usual, I was scared and my hands were shaking as I went in the water. But we had a great instructor (named Diego) and he was very helpful towards us. He would alway be in watch of us and was very kind, too. Everyone was very open and friendly which helped cope with the nervousness and the fear of diving. Seeing the amazing corals up so close made me see the uniqueness of diving. I absolutely loved this experience.

“Great Diving and Snorkelling at Koh Tao”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

Our family ranged from an Advance diver to mere snorkelers. Colin has something for everybody, He has a team of people to assist first time divers and those who are more experienced. It was a great day out. We enjoyed our day out very much and would recommend his dive school to anyone who is interested. There were 5 of us and we met some lovely people from all over the world. Safety standards is of a high level and the boat was well maintained. I will not hesitate for my son to complete his Dive Masters at BDS.

“Friendly and experienced team”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

My husband and I have dived in many locations around the globe, so have met some interesting dive schools along the way......if you know what I mean!

We dived with Colin and his team whilst on holiday in Koh Samui and they were just great, very experienced and make you feel at ease, they were running serveral courses whilst we were diving with them and made the students feel right at ease. If I wanted to learn to dive I would do it here. With over 500 dives between us we keep saying we must do our rescue diver course, so watch out Colin and gang, you may have to put up with us again next year!!

“Great diving in Koh Samui”
Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

As experienced divers my wife Natalie and I are keen to recommend Colin and the team to any uk divers looking for a safe and fun team to dive with. They have a quick boat that will get you out to the best dive sites. Water temps were 31-32c when we dived this week, the warmest we ever dived and somewhat warmer than Wraysbury lake in February. Sail Rock was a world class dive and Colin (our guide) obviously knows the dives like the back of his hand. With very artistic briefings (Colin Van Gough perchance?) you will be well informed and enjoy diving with this outfit.
