  • We went on a one day trip to Koh Tao for diving and snorkelling with these cool guys. We did a lot of research before and ended up going with definitely one of the best organized companies. We had two amazing dives/snorkels and a delicious lunch in between and enjoyed the speedboat ride to Koh Tao and back. Our guide Inna pointed out a lot of great stuff and we saw to rays having sex (did you ever see this before?? Looks funny because they are so flat hahaha). They picked us up at our Villa (actually this one was hard to find and they managed to pick us up right on time (we love being right on time haha) and took us to the dive center where everything was already prepared. The trip was perfectly planned, the boat driver was amazing coz we did not really feel the waves and the guides were so nice. We had a great time and even when our parents forgot their towel AND CAMERA there, they made a call and gave everything back. Thank you for this nice experience, we can highly recommend this company for whatever you want to do related to diving and snorkeling. They are professional, perfectly organized and super friendly.
  • Good equipment and a very friendly staff. Already looking forward to the next dive with them
  • Excellent dive shop, very professional, good gear, good boats. Time to sail rock: 50mins. Time to Koh Tao: 1.5 to 2hrs (depending on conditions). Sail Rock is well worth it!
  • What a great experience! Claire's service and friendliness is outstanding. The dive instructors were enthusiastic, informative and very safety conscious. A professional energetic Team serving the diving community well. Shotto guys.
  • New equipment, nice staff, wonderful dives. I strongly recommend anyone to visit dive sites sround koh tao with the dive academy. As a divemaster I got wonderful service and my wife had two fun dives which she enjoyed.
