Details are explained well, in a very simple way. Awesome experience. The boat too was very clean and nice. The boat crew was superb. Simple n good food. They take good care of their clients. We were a group of 7 and every one was super satisfied.

We went for our first ever dive yesterday and had a lot of fun. At first we were a bit nervous, but the staff was really able to ease our minds, answered all our questions and explained we had nothing to worry about. We had 2 very professional divers for the 2 of us. The first dive we did some exercises to make sure we understood the basics. Julien was very helpful and patient as he explained multiple times if we did not understand the first time. My husband was having some trouble with his ears after the first dive because we went down a bit too fast, as he is prone to this but Julien and Julia were very understanding and helped him through it. We fully recommend diving with this company, especially if it’s the first time and you are a bit nervous. Thank you for a great experience!

Amazing dive center with very professional and friendly Course director Yann, Instructor Amanda, Julian and Caro. Yann was very quick and helpful to reply on every query and details. Trip was wonderful as we had the whole boat for just a few divers. Food was simple but delicious. Boat crew was helpful and friendly as well. Would definitely patron again on my next visit to Krabi.
