I wasn’t planning on diving on Koh Tao but I am so glad I did (with roctopus especially!). From the moment I walked into the shop to sign up for a course, I was immediately greeted by so many friendly people. I was able to sign up and start my course on the same day which was so convenient. My dive group was 2 instructors and 4 students. Gary and Hetta were absolutely amazing instructors. They were very experienced and taught us all we needed to know to stay safe while diving, but also became great friends by the end of the four days. Diving with roctopus was the best thing I did in my month traveling in Thailand and I’d recommend it to anyone!

I completed my Open Water dive course with Roctopus this summer and it was absolutely amazing! Everyone on their staff makes you feel so comfortable and like you are part of the team. The immediate feeling of community at Roctopus is tough to beat. My instructor, Fiona McGill, was the absolute best and was so excited to share her passion with us newbies. She was professional, highly experienced, patient, and such a joy to learn from. This was my first time diving and she walked me through everything I needed to know, and more. I highly recommend Roctopus if you're looking to dive at Koh Tao!

I'm only writing this review so I don't have to give Tiago 42 chocolates. But seriously, thank you for the lessons Tiago, we had a great time!

I chose Roctopus diving getting various recommendations for them and I was not disappointed.
While the prices on the island are all the same, the quality between the schools seems to vary. This school has convinced in every aspect: training in a private pool, small groups of 4 students and 2(!!) Instructors. There were also groups of two with a single instructor. Surely not a standard around diving schools in Koh Tao as far as I heard.
All the employees were fun and easy going and most importantly competent in their field. I felt safe the entire time even though it was my first time diving. Will definitely visit them again if I come back to Koh Tao (or Indonesia, where they have a second shop!)
Special thanks to instructors Gary and Hetta!
