I did Discover scuba dives and also one day trip to Antghon Marine Park. Jorma, my instructor, was supportive and funny. Got great 1:1 service and could not be better. An amazing underwater experience. Choose them if you want small groups and more personal service. From start to end everything was very smooth and relaxing. Whole staff on the boat was very helpful and funny.

Came here as part of our honeymoon in July 2013. Had an absolutely amazing day!

You pay a we bit more to go with these guys but throughout the day, when you see the other boats and you see how crowded they are, only then do you fully appreciate going with 100 Degrees East.

The tour guides were all very friendly and very knowledgeable. An absolutely cracking day out. Highly recommended!

We booked with 100 degrees East for a snorkling / kayaking trip, a first ever for my husband and me. The team is absolutely amazing! They are thorough professionals and perfectionists. From ensuring fresh fruits and refreshments throughout the trip, to making sure you are with an experienced diver if required, or just left alone to enjoy the beauty of the sea and the beaches - the team is perceptive and exude a love for the ocean.
We were impressed with their passion for keeping the seas and the beaches clean. They cut open a steel trap they found while diving and bought it up on board. In the hour that we were kayaking, part of the team went to the neighbouring beaches to collect the litter left behind by tourists. We actually had 3-4 sac fulls of litter on the boat when we headed back inland!
Thanks 100 degrees for giving us this wonderful day!

Absolutely awesome day with the 100 Degrees team to Koh Tao. We prebooked online which was very very easy with the lovely Caz. My partner is PADI certified but I am not, but this trip offered something for both of us. The waters are chrystal clear with lots of things to see.
Tom our instructor was AWESOME (beers for TOM!), as were all the team. Tom was informative, friendly and fun and ensured we were comfortable at all times. The timing of the trip is excellent also as we always arrived well before other tours and left before they did to get to the next sight. Lunch was great and drinks were provided throughout the day of soft drinks and water.
Whilst slightly more expensive, 100 Degrees as absolutely worth the extra, especially as it means there are only 12 people plus the team on the boat, and you get a pool dive to familiarise yourself with the gear - thanks Ivan for the lesson! The boat ride was a little rough but no-one can control the weather and the skipper was great and made it as smooth as possible.
I would have no hesitation in recommending 100 Degrees to anyone else - in fact we will be going back next year - hopefully! Thanks guys and gals!!!

We booked our diving with 100DE after reading all the trip advisor reviews. Words simply cannot describe how good diving with them is, multiply all these good reviews together and you might come close.

Ivan and Caz are incredibly welcoming and the dive team make you feel incredibly safe. I had the pleasure of diving with Milla for six days. For two days she was my own private guide who navigated me to the best spots and around the other dive groups who often numbered at least 6 and we saw a group as big as 10!! 100DE keep there groups small enabling you to see the best stuff before it gets scared off!

The area has at least 60 dive schools, some with boats that can take 80 divers at one time. 100DE get you quickly to the dive sites (compared with other schools on Samui), avoiding sites that are horrifically busy or getting there early enough to be the first there (sail rock). With other dives schools you might find yourself doing a 200m surface swim to then descend on a dive site that has 100+ people on it already!!

100DE focus on safety, comfort and enjoyment. There are horror stories floating around about divers being left behind. 100DE always check you off and on the boat, which is very reassuring.

The kit is new and well maintained, unlike other places in Asia. They also supply dive computers, which help you stay within your no decompression limits.

The food they serve is excellent – a testament to them is that whenever the boat is moored up, staff from other companies want to come sit with the team and eat any of the left overs!!

We also did the national park tour with 100DE, big thanks to Mr Chai for guiding the sea kayaking. Cheaper trips will see you on a giant stink pot boat with 100’s of other people.

I simply cannot praise these guys enough; the extra you pay to go with them actually isn’t that much when you think about what you get for it. These guys really should be number 1 on trip advisor. Frankly I think you would be mad to choose to dive or do a national park trip with anyone else. The #1 reason I would come back to Samui would be to dive with these guys again.
