Three Reasons To Dive With Us

With so many choices of who to dive with in Phuket, why choose us? Here are three good reasons:

  • Safety: This should be the first priority of every diver when diving anywhere, especially in a new place. With over 30 years between us of diving in Phuket we have an excellent safety record. This is due to our vast experience of diving in general but also because of our local knowledge. Our focus is on preventing problems from occurring rather than having to solve them.
  • Quality: We started our own diving company in Phuket because we felt unable to offer the quality we wanted when working for the bigger companies. Rather than being about profits we wanted to be about personal service. This is why we became the first dive company to offer diving courses in Phuket with only private instruction. We continue to do this and to stay small rather than give up our principles and make more money.
  • Fun: You don't dive because you have to, you dive to have fun. Us too! There is no place on this planet that we prefer to be than underwater. We never get bored of being surrounded by fishes. If we can help you to have as much fun diving as we do then it will probably be the best experience of your time in Phuket!

Private Instruction

To enable us to give you the safest and best diving experience, we only offer private tuition for all our diving courses in Phuket. Read about how this benefits you here.
