Discovery Divers is the premier 5-star PADI dive center in Koh Samui offering the highest quality of service for reasonable prices. We are one of the longest running dive shops on the island as having been in business for over 14 years and have the most experienced and respected full time dive staff in the Gulf of Thailand. Discovery is also one of the only diver centers who runs our own speedboats. We offer a full range of PADI courses from Bubblemaker, Discover Scuba diving and open water diver up to professional level divemaster training. We have full-time dive staff that speaks fluent English, German, French, Chinese, Cantonese, Japanese, Italian and Spanish. At Discovery Divers we are committed to fun and safety. We believe that the customers needs come first. This is why we have access to the widest selection of boats on the island including our own Discovery Divers speedboats and run numerous daily trips to all of the beautiful dives sites in the gulf of Thailand. We realize that it is YOUR vacation and usually can accommodate any request for courses or certified divers to go to the location you want to go on the day you want to go, with the type of boat (tour boat or speedboat)that you want to go on. We also offer photography services and rentals using top of the line Canon cameras and have console and wrist computers for use with courses or certified divers. This along with our stock of exceptional and modern dive equipment from Aqua Lung, Mares and Scubapro will make your dives safe, fun and worry free. Come by and see our dive shop, meet our staff, and see our onsite training pools, equipment room, washing area and classroom in front of the Amari Hotel in Chaweng Beach.

Couldn't really of asked for anything more. Friendly & professional staff. Safety was clearly important. Our DMs were really attentive to my partner who is newly qualified OW so she felt really safe. I would recommend anyone from my diving club to use this company

Hello, I will be in Koh Samui 11-19.04.17, I am a certified OWD (PADI) and I would like to upgrade to Advanced OWD. Can you help me with the course, starting 12.04.17? What is the price for that? How long does the course take? I have done Underwater Photography a few years ago, can it be taken into account? I have my mask, fins and snorkel, but I will need to rent the rest of the equipment from you. It is my first time in Thailand, and I have no idea about the water conditions there, will I need my (long) wet suit (3 mm)? Thanks in advance for a prompt reply! Best regards, Sinziana

Response from fuscobal | Reviewed this property |
Water is about 29-31deg C so the wetsuit doesn't need to be too thick (my diving computer showed the same at 12m depth). As for the prices, ask them on their email as they are very helpful and nice !
