“Port Closed - But Jomtien Dive Came Through”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Was headed out for a day trip with Jomtien when the authorities closed the port -- total bummer. While we didn't actually get to dive with Jomtien, they handled the whole thing very well. The team was very patient when we were waiting for updates. When it was clear we weren't going to go, they helped brainstorm alternatives that might work out. Finally, they were very cool about processing refunds - an unfortunate cost of doing business...

“Beyond Amazing!”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

I have to admit that I've always had a slight fear of water and for me, receiving my open water certification was a way to overcome that fear. Learning to dive at the Jomtien Dive Center was an amazing experience. My instructress, Louise, was very knowledgeable, fun supportive and beyond cool! She went above and beyond to make sure I felt at ease and to successfully complete my certification. The owner, Gary is a true professional who welcomes you to his center not just as a client, but as a long lost friend. I really felt at home with the team. They are an amazing group of individuals that inspired in me a new found appreciation for diving. I strongly recommend Jomtien Dive Center for anyone looking to dive for their first time and or to receive a certification. If you're traveling to Pattaya and want to dive you should definitely check out this dive shop - you surely will not regret it! Thank you Gary, Louise, Jeshe and Dome! :)
