Did with them 7 dives in three days, with 4 instructors. All of them are nice, helpful, well knowledge and want you to see what's down there. Highly recommend them for scuba diving. After the 7 dives they gave me a discount on my last day and a free t-shirt.

I was snorkling on Local Diving`s trip to Phi Phi and on another day I joined the trip to the local islands. Both trip were lots of fun, stuff is friendly and the atmosphere relaxing. Especially the bigger boat is really comfortable. The sea and the islands are fantastic in Krabi. I had great snorkling and loved the food. I... More

Päätimmen lähteä päivän sukellus- ja snorklausretkelle Local Divingilaisten kanssa. Edellisvuotinen mainio kokemus oli hyvin muistissa. Kun lasten kanssa matkustaa, arvostaa ennakointia ja asioiden sujuvuutta. Löytyy laadukkaat pelastusliivit, snorkkelit ja ruoka maistuu pienille merirosvoille ja merenneidoille. Kommunikaatio pelaa henkilökunnan kanssa ja on turvallinen olo. Heidän tietämys merestä, sen asukeista, ja muusta värittää reissupäivää iloisesti! Suosittelen! We get back to Ao Nang... More

It was during the peak tourist season and many busy days, but it still was fun and relaxing with you guys, easy-going, funny and professional! I love that... More

This just happened to me today. First, 30+ minutes late picking us up at hotel in a rickety truck. Driver gets lost finding next guest. Finally get to dive shop. Staff is disorganized and slow. Looks like a dozen other divers at all levels from first timers, to certification divers to highly experienced. Finally, one diver asks how long it... More

We are extremely sorry for your bad experience. It was certainly a difficult and frustrating day for all trip and tour operators. As it was the peak of the national holidays with a massive influx or new and existing holiday makers wanting to join trips for their holidays. It is the same each year, no matter how hard we all...

It was really an amazing experience...me and my wife tried scuba diving for a very first time though we didn't know swimming,Staffs were friendly and taken care of us very safely. I must thank to my instructor Nathyn Morley for his protection throughout our dive. It's worth a diving experience with Local Diving Krabi, Thailand.Do not miss!!
