I did the Open Water 20 course with some friends at Roctopus and had a blast! The instructors are all very knowledgeable, fun to be around and concerned with your safety without being overbearing. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Koh Tao. Be sure to request John!

My boyfriend and I went to try scube diving for first time with roctopus because I saw they have good reviews, and definitely it's a good place!

We had a theory lesson to have the basic diving knowledge, then we went to the boat with our allocate instructors and we did some exercises in the water to get familiar with our equipment. When we were confident enough we started to get deeper.

It was a marvelous experience! It is like being in a different world! Wonderful!

I just would like to say THANK YOU to VICKY, our instructor, as she was very supportive at all the time. I was quite scared at the beginning and she pass me on her confident making me feel safe. Thanks!

I don’t normally write Trip Advisor reviews but I was compelled after my superb dive training experience. I took the basic open water 20 course and was lucky enough to get the floating scottsman Lewis as my instructor.

He was an attentive, knowledgeable, and thorough instructor every step of the way. Lewis gave our group supreme confidence by taking his time and being a stickler for proper technique and safe ascents despite not diving super deep.

He may steal hairbands and be slightly hard to understand at times but I wouldn’t choose anybody else to lead me through the crystal clear depths off the coast of koh tao. He’s a consummate professional and fantastic teacher. I didn’t have time for the advanced course but absolutely would have taken it if I did.

Book your tour with Roctopus ASAP, you won’t regret it. And request Lewis if hes not busy.

During my stay in Koh Tao I started the Open Water 20 course at Roctopus Diving. After completion I did the Explorer 30 course as well.

I can highly recommend this diving school and in particular the instructors I had during these two courses: Gary Robbins and Lewis Robertson.

I had an amazing diving experience at Rocktopus for my open water certification. Before going diving I was a little anxious about it all, having had no prior diving experience. As soon as we started our lessons with our instructor Vicky Laspiur my confidence immediately shot up as I could tell we were in the safe hands of a very professional, experienced and aware instructor/teacher who not only wanted us to learn but also ensured we enjoyed it all to the fullest extent, which made me very comfortable throughout the whole process and ultimately led to an extremely enjoyable & unforgettable time that has truly amplified the whole awesomeness of our time, particularly under the water but also at Kao Tao in general.
