This review is about the Dive Wishes shop attached to the Haad Tien resort. I was recommended to go this dive school by a friend, and I am glad they did! The shop,service and staff were all of the highest quality, and I thoroughly enjoyed my time there.
First - the price. Yes, it is more expensive than the other places, but you pay for the quality. I was able to have 1-1 tuition for my dive courses, and the small groups allowed for a lot of flexibility in dive sites and time in the water. They were also able to create bespoke diving expeditions, something I feel a larger operational would be unable to do. Due to the smaller nature of the shop, there were extremely flexible in how the ran things, and always ensured that you got the maximum amount of time possible in the water. All the Scuba and snorkelling equipment is there to use, and the speedboat made for a rapid trip to your dive location.
The staff (AJ, Damien, Krista, Thor) were all highly professional, and showed an enormous amount of professionalism and enthusiasm, which only added to the overall enjoyment of the trip. My personal thanks to Thor for being my instructor and being of the highest standards when in the water, and also knowing when have fun. All the instructors and the manager were able to cater for almost any needs, and went out of their way to ensure a good dive trip was had by everyone who went there. During my week there I heard not one bad thing said against the shop or the staff.
I would highly recommend this dive shop to anyone who wants to try diving, the experience was wonderful and I can;t wait to go back on my next trip.
