what people say about us

[These are a few of the hundreds of comments from our guestbook which you can see in our dive shop. Your enjoyment and safety is our top priority and we hope that shows]

Just wanted to say thanks for a great diving trip and for also making the pre-dive process so easy. Your quick responses to my emails and use of PayPal for deposit payments really put my mind at ease when we were booking the trip.

All the staff on the boat (guides, support staff) were super friendly and helpful and the food on board was simply amazing!

Most importantly, the dive sites were superb with so much variety of marine life - the highlights were undoubtedly seeing the leopard sharks and the turtles swimming by. We will certainly be back!
Courtenay and Josie

Just to say a big thank you for all the help in making the diving safari a truly memorable trip.  From the initial booking and arranging for the taxi pick up from my hotel in Phuket to the boat in Khao Lak was just a synch, all done from the comfort of my home with my PC.  The dive sites were well chosen and the dive guides / instructors simply fantastic.  Good and plentiful food, a very friendly and helpful crew, I hope to be back before too long.
