It was my first time on scuba diving! I thought it would be scarry but the instructor was very calm and made us understand all the instructions well and took prior care of every minute details.
It was the beautiful thing to do and I had never felt so much at peace but yet scaryy. Knowing that there was safety measures taken, I was at ease and just enjoying the experience

Came to pattaya and went diving with Nick. Great guide, showed me around some awesome dive sites including a world war 2 shipwreck. He even took the time to show me round the town afterwards. Awesome experience that I highly recommend to anyone.

Scuba Dawgs is a professional dive operation with good staff and equipment and if you are diving in Pattaya, I would recommend going with them.

I was unfortunate with my time of diving - the visibility was very poor on the wreck dive and as I was feeling sick from prior dehydration sickness, I had to skip the second dive.

Absolutely terrible..said the kids were of appropriate age, took my money and when arrived on the boat they had no right size shoes for my girls to use then they just expected my 7 year old girls to jump in in rough deep seas..i was told they would be walking in from the shore .they started crying and that was that no refund they were rude and I felt totally conned.. I'm a scuba diver with over 100 dives.. They were totally unprofessional.. Stay clear

Sorry to hear about your experience Matthew but i'm afraid this wasn't our company. We do not offer or endorse the 'Sea walking' activity only proper scuba diving. But because our location is based at the pier we are often tagged / confused so. Best regards Team SDP

My girlfriend and I, did two try dives with Scuba Dawgs. We were pretty apprehensive before hand but Shaun is a great instructor who put us at ease immediately. The equipment was brand new and the lunch served on board the boat was excellent. Shaun's assistant even took underwater photos and videos for free. All in all we had a fabulous day and I found Scuba Dawgs Pattaya to have the lowest prices by far and all the other dive centres wanted extra money for photos. I will definitely dive with them again.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am so glad that both of you enjoyed yourself and i hope you go on to make your first Padi certification soon. You are both certainly talented divers. I appreciate you mentioning the photos and the video and i will always offer this service Free of charge to my customers if it is safe to do so. I always take a divemaster along with me who is happy to shoot some footage so my students get to take great memories home to show their family and friends. Shaun (owner Scubadawgs Pattaya)

I recently stayed at a resort in Bangsaray called 4 Palm and the owner Shaun is a friend of a friend and i have dived with him before at a previous divecentre he owned so it seemed logical to dive with him again.
We left the resort at 9am and travelled down to the quant village of Samaesan which took about 30 mins. We travelled onto the divesites on a lovely custom built diveboat.
The visibilty was really good and we saw turtles, lionfish, stingrays and lovely corals.
The mood on the boat was upbeat and the staff including Shaun my guide were so helpful. Im getting a bit older now so i need a bit of assisitance and Shaun realised this and made the day easy.
Lunch was a choice of 3 Thai dishes and some delicious fried chicken wings.
I would recommend Scubadawgs Pattaya completely. You won't be disapointed and the owner really goes that extra mile for you. The equipment is also in very good condition.

We enjoyed a lot with Scuba Dawgs.Specially Shaun.He will teach you every aspects of the Dive.You can ask all types of Doubts to him.( Even repeatedly...what I did..)...
We did 2 dives on 9th July.
First one was the training.but I am sure people like us ,who doesn't have any prior experience in Dive, will not feel it as a training..,but they will feel it as one actual Scuba dive .
In 2nd Dive,we found lots of Fish,coral and even 2 Sting rays...
We were feeling like professional under the water (even though some of us don't know Swimming at all)with the help of Shaun and entire crew as they were very concerned about our safty and all....
I will definitely recommend Scuba Dawgs, to everyone specially to my Indian friends.
Thanks Shaun,Steve,Dan..for giving us the thrilling experience..
We will definitely come back to you in Future for further adventure.

I did a three dive day trip with Shaun and absolutely loved it, I felt like family. To begin with he picked me up when I first arrived in Pattaya, then I got all my gear fitted and Shaun was helpful with advice and some great gear. He also invited me to join his family and friends for dinner. The next day we had a fantastic day of diving with only one little mix up but that wasn't Shaun's fault. He made sure everyone was happy and comfortable all day long, and provide a great service. I will be back and dive with Shaun again.

How would you describe a service with service provider who:

- deals with you from the beginning as a trustful friend.
- agrees with you on amount of payment, where you feel like (and you tell him) that he deserves more.
- gives you the freedom to dive "your way", yet still making sure you'll make it alive.
- gets you to meet some great (huge) people, who can prove that diving is really for everybody.

That is simply someone you want to hang on with at the "choppy seas", diving over un-exploded mines at Harddeep, cheering up seasick rookies on the way back from an extraordinary dive trip.

Once again, thank you Shaun.

I have just completed my PADI open water certification and deep sea dive to 30 metres under the patient and expert tutelage of Shaun. I received first class one to one tuition over 5 dives around Ko Larn and Ko Samae San. I did investigate other dive packages in the area but they did not offer that personal touch. He was also very competitive with price.

He is very conscientious and thorough and made sure I grasped core skills before proceeding on to other aspects of the course. I am looking to move on to more technical courses in the near future with him.

I would highly recommend Scuba Dawg to you.

Many thanks Shaun.
