We saw a... More

We did our PADI Open Water Course. Very good diving and saw amazing sea life! (Bamboo sharks & moray eels!) Our instructor Wade was very understanding as I have problems equalizing. Definitely would recommend to anyone! A shame they didn't have the big diving boat available while we did our diving though but overcome this by using Thai traditional long... More

We had an amazing time in Koh Lipe diving with Paul. He is very meticulous about giving us the best experience in a safe environment. I could not be happier with our time at Forra Diving. Best on the island!!

We did a DSD with Forra the first time we visited Koh Lipe and we loved it so much that we came back a couple of weeks later and got our OWC. Our instructor, Nic, was great. Very meticulous and encouraging and we really felt safe and as if we learned to dive properly. The dive sites were nice and... More
