We've tried multiple one-day dives in various travels, including Thailand previously, and this was the best of all of them. Definitely if I were going back, Jon and his team would be the best possible choice. We email Jon with last minute requests (time was running short and we had one day left...hadn't considered the scuba until the last moment).... More

We went on a Discover Scuba diving trip. The day starts at 8 am at the Hai Pier. First you get some gear from the instructor and then you are off to the boat. Ian, our instructor explained the do's and dont's and after a 50 min boat trip we did our first dive where we learned a few basics... More

Having read the reviews on Tripadvisor my partner and I decided to book a Discover Scuba Diving course to learn about diving.

My wife and I went for a days scuba diving with Pattaya Diving and Fishing school, and it was really worth doing the research before we picked a school. We are both open water divers but my wife was a bit nervous as she had not dived for about a year. I could not fault the professional setup that is... More

Pattayadivingfishing, Owner at Scuba Diving Pattaya, responded to this review

I had quite a lot of email correspondence with Rajeev before he and his friends booked their trip, and I wholeheartedly know that I explained the trip properly, ie: that the boat was an old style Thai fishing boat, not a yacht that one of the group hoped it would be, but it seems like it fell on deaf ears....
