BEST DIVING SCHOOL ON KOH TAO – I had a hard time choosing a diving school for my Open Water Course in Koh Tao, because there are sooo many. But I’m superhappy I chose Phoenix Divers! Really good price, nice accommodation (with 2 pools!!) small groups, a great atmosphere and most of all the best dive instructor everr.

FANTASTIC DIVING SCHOOL – Great diving school located in the middle of Sairee Beach. Our 3 teenage kids all made their first scuba experience there and got their open water certificate. They teach in very small groups and my kids had a teacher just for the 3 of them. Their teacher was great and very thorough and made the process much fun. I myself did a refresher course at the school and went on a couple of dives.

Another great teacher and Koh Tao diving experience – They dive in small groups so you don’t end up in huge diving groups. We compared quality and prices of a number of diving schools and Phoenix seemed the best. All their dive and office staff was really friendly and helpful. Thanks!

SCUBA DIVING ON KOH TAO – Me and my partner did our open water diving here. Amazing Diving school. Everyone makes you feel very welcome. We had Rory as our instructor and he was amazing. Such a good teacher. His teaching techniques are amazing and I now feel more than confident to dive with a buddy. He’s also great to be around and up for a laugh. Would highly recommend this diving school. Unfortunately I don’t have long left of my holiday but if I did have longer I would definitely take extra courses here. Amazing price as well!

SO GOOD WE’RE RETURNING FOR MORE DIVING COURSES! – We booked Phoenix Divers through a recommendation from friends. We were not disappointed. The team are fantastic from booking through the website, on email, preparation and diving on the day. We had a great few days diving on the beautiful pink boat! Enjoyed our time with Phoenix Divers so much we continued to do our Advanced Course. Not only that! We have now booked to return for 6 weeks in July to complete our Divemaster!

PHOENIX DIVERS IS THE BEST! Got my open water certification with my 5 friends, and I’ve since done several more fun dives with them! Excellent instructors (special shout out to Nate & Franco!), awesome equipment, and a course structure which was comfortable and comprehensive! All of us loved the course here and couldn’t be happier with all aspects of this dive shop! A couple friends just wanted to try it out for a day and got a special course in the morning and still came out with us in the afternoon! Anyone thinking of diving in Koh Tao needs to come to this dive center.

GREAT COMMUNITY FEEL. I have just completed my open water diving course and I’m so glad I chose Phoenix diviner’s. At first I was nervous on first day and almost quit dispite really wanting to learn to scuba dive. I kept going and was given lots of support by my instructor Nate and I felt safe the whole time. Everyone at the school is really friendly and they organise social activities in the evenings which were really enjoyable. I can see why many people find it hard to leave.

We’ve been awarded the TripAdvisor certificate of excellence for 5 years in a row.

OPEN WATER DIVING COURSE. It was an exceptionally beautiful experience to do my first few dives at pheonix. People are nice, amazing super friendly. They have a pretty nice chilled out place. Barbecues at night is love. Water refill is pretty good so that you dont have to buy more plastics. Our Instructor, Hugo Tiger is the kind of instructor people would wish to have. We had him for all the 4 dives we did for open water. From calming me down from the first dive and to have me running around like a champion in the 4th dive! All credits to him, Cheers!!
Best place to be.

OPEN WATER DIVING. We’ve finished our open water course with Phoenix diving, what an adventure! We have been seeking around for a diving school that we liked! Been to around 10 places and we made the decision to go with Phoenix divers! An amazing and beautiful place to dive with! We got assigned to our diving master Hugo an amazing French guy who knows everything about diving that you want to know!

Me and my buddy even got to do the fast track because Hugo has the vision to see when someone is comfortable with diving in one second! Not only Hugo, all the employees of Phoenix are amazing, helpful & funny. They all take the time that you need to feel comfortable. I want to thank you guys! I’m 80/20 on my advanced diving course, so I’ll be back! Thanks guys. P.s. we got to see a beautiful whale shark!!

BEST DIVING SCHOOL ON KOH TAO. We did our open water training here in January & liked them so much we came back to take our Advanced Adventurer Course. We then dove with them almost every day of our two week vacation.
Our Dive Masters for our fun dives were Leo and Nico. We loved both of them. They took great care of us! We even saw a Whale Shark with Nico when we went to dive Sail Rock! If you want to learn to dive or just book fun dives you MUST book with Phoenix! They treat you like family!
We will miss you til next time Phoenix!

THE BEST DIVE SCHOOL ON KOH TAO! A must do while visiting Koh Tao. Great dive instructors and team, overall amazing dives and experience. Hugo and Finn were amazing instructors and James the manager and Jojo in the office were so friendly and accommodating. The diving is only were it begins. The social side and the hostel and pool bar and weekly BBQ’s they throw are perfect chance to meet all of the dive team and all of their customers! 10/10! Phoenix Divers made me feel so welcome and I will be coming back for scuba diving on Koh Tao!
