I have always been intimidated by the ocean and of course fearful of sharks. So diving was never an option for me. As I slowly moved closer to Thailand and it's islands, more and more people talked about diving in Koh Tao. I eventually decided I needed to conquer my fears and try scuba diving. I knew Koh Tao was the mecca for cheap diving, so I ended up staying for 11 days. I heard about Master Divers through a series of meeting people and recommendations that made me feel like fate was pointing me in their direction.
There are many cheaper companies out there, and I don't know much about them, but I am extremely pleased I decided to pay more and go with Master Divers. The groups will never be more than 4 people, with the occasional solo classes. I did my Open Water course, took a day or two break, and then decided to go back for my Advanced certification too. I fell in love with diving and look forward to diving more around the world. All of my instructors and other staff members were superb. I even met some great people that are now life long friends within my classes.
I did a fun dive with another company as MD wasn't offering the dive I wanted on that particular day, and though it was still fun and that staff was good too, they just weren't MD quality. I would definitely recommend to anyone that wants to dive, beginner or expert, pay the little bit of extra money. You get what you pay for!
Thanks to everyone at Master Divers for an incredible experience that I will never forget! Hope to make it back one day to see you all again!
