We both came to Phuket at different times and for different reasons but individually fell in love with this tropical paradise. With its mix of traditional Thai culture and modern infrastructure, white sandy tropical beaches and state-of-the-art shopping centers, there are so many places to visit and things to do in Phuket. Of course the main attraction for us is the scuba diving. With fantastic dive sites around Phuket itself, superb reefs at Phi Phi islands and further south, plus the world famous Similan islands to the north, the variety is tremendous.
Initially Iain and Oui both worked for various PADI dive centers in Kata and Karon in Phuket which is how we met. Eventually we decided to do our own thing so that we can offer the type of service and quality that we feel people on holiday deserve. We are completely passionate about scuba diving and are probably the only dive company owners in Phuket that teach and dive on an almost daily basis. We love to share our enthusiasm and dive experiences with students and certified scuba divers alike. Between us we have guided and taught scuba diving courses in Phuket to thousands of people from all different backgrounds, nationalities, ages and experience levels.
With so many choices of who to go scuba diving with in Phuket, why choose us? Here are three good reasons:
