I did my PADI open water course with Bond the Thai instructor. He made the whole experience feel easy and relaxed. During the 4 open water dives we did he made me feel safe and comfortable in the water and took me to some amazing sites keeping fun the aim of the day. Overall great experience and can't wait until my next dive!

my second time with bangtao dive (bond) for my dive trip in Phuket. He is a very dedicated dive leader and will always ensure you understand the dive sites well before heading into the water. The pick up was smooth (from the hotel) to the pier and head off straight to the boat. No complains, and i will always choose Bangtao Dive (and Bond!) as my dive guide whenever i'm in Phuket :)

I went to Phuket in March and took a one day trip with Bang Tao dive center. The whole experience was smooth from start to finish. The van picked me up on time and dropped me off at the hotel. I had 3 dives at Koh Dok Mai, Kind Crusier wreck, and Shark Point and had a great time. The dive leader was very knowledgeable and friendly. He also took many beautiful pictures for me as a surprise. Overall highly recommend.

I took open water course with Bangtao Dive Center.It's open to the new world. This Scuba shop is located at Bangtao beach, Phuket,Thailand. it is very convenient to go and easy to find by google map. James our instructor having a lot of experienced, he's a good teaching, explain clearly about the exercise and equipment. James has a very good quality wet suit, BCD and fin. My first dive was at Koh Racha Yai. I went there with a big boat safe and comfortable. This island was really wonderful with coral and a lot of fishes, make my dive was fun and impress.
