  • Happy to say that I completed my PADI Open Water scuba diving courses in Krabi. 3 full days of class & practice to develop my skills. I did it with Sawasdee which is the first Dive Center reply back. Christelle provided excellent customer service and was well taken care of. My experience was a 10/10. A big thanks to my instructor Nico. He is the most patient person I ever met in life. He keeps encouraging me during the these three days and made my experience perfect. Can't wait to dive all around the world.
