I was lucky enough in recent days to go diving at Sails Rock Thailand and was pretty nervous as it was my first dive in 10 years. Was doing a quick refresher course and the 2 dives. Fortunately I got a great instructor Yann from Canada just the type of person you need getting you back into the groove. He was diligent in his explanations and once in the water had plenty of patients as I got back into it. Yann and Lotus thank you for a memorable occasion - will recommend you guys to everyone in future

Lotus diving school was absolutely brilliant.
Me and my boyfriend had never dived before and couldn't afford to do the full course as we were leaving to go home soon, so we decided to opt for the fun dives. Includes two 1 hour dives! dinner. Breakfast drinks etc. definitely worth every penny!!

Our instructor was called 'oo', her English was brilliant. We did a pool dive first where she taught us how to use all the equipment, hand signs etc. and she was so lovely and a really good teacher.

The actual dive was amazing, saw so many fish and corals and sea life. We had another instructor come with us who took lots of photos and videos that came out amazing!

We've been travelling for a while now through Asia, and this was definitely our favourite thing we've done! We just want to do it again and agin! 5*!

Dear Our Valued Customer,

Thank you very much for your lovely review.
It's very nice to know that we've made a nice experience to you guys. What you have done is called Discovery Scuba Dive course, as you said it allows you to dive at 12 meters without doing a full course. The course allow you to dive with our experience PADI Staff who give you fully attention while diving or doing the skills.

However, this review is like the reward for our staff and I'm going to let her know about it.

Regards,
Guest Relations Manager

The people working at Lotus are extremely friendly and helpful to fulfil your diving desires.
They have a nice boat, quality equipment and professional instructors/dive masters.

We went fundiving at "sail rock", one of the best diving spots in the golf of Thailand! And although the visibility was not great (5m), my dive master Mark (cool Belgian guy) turned it into two wonderful dives.

Had a great time and can strongly recommend Lotus diving!

I've made a day trip to Sail Rock with them. I booked in a agency in Had Rin beach.

The equipment is good, my guide was a nice guy from Germany and all staff were gentle and professionals.

The boat has two decks, wood made, good food and well equipped.

Sail Rock is a very nice place! Great visibility, 28°C, a lot of life, nice colors, but I expected a little bit more colors.
