Fantastic experience, 30 dives over a three week holiday. All the team are absolute professionals from the guides to the instructors and boat / transport team. Nothing was too much trouble, sourcing me a twin set and my daily shot of nitrox. They can support everything from basic recreational, dsds, snorkelling through to full tech specifications. If this was not enough the hot lunch provided on the boat equalled the restaurant’s for quality and flavour. Many thanks to Doug and Gary plus Wayne and the rest of the team - too many to mention.
All in all a fantastic diving holiday, our thanks to you all, we will be back. 😎

I was very nervous before coming here and had almost given up on diving, but here I met the kindest and most competent dive instructors to make me feel calm. Gary Phillips made us feel instantly welcome and was incredibly hospitable. I got Wayne Carr as my instructor for the OWD course, and I couldn't recommend him highly enough. The most patient instructor you'll meet, with tons of humor. He took his time and made me feel comfortable diving, instead of hurrying through the tasks. I felt incredibly lucky to have met him and this whole team of divers. Definitely going back!

Professional, and incredibly friendly- great dive centre set up, and loves the boats. Food was really good on the boats, and all the staff were great. Would highly recommend anyone wanting to learn to dive in Pattaya to give them a call, or anyone who wants to do some diving in Pattaya. They have all the equipment needed incase you don’t have your own.

My Koh Tao trip was canceled due to travel resfriction, however the dive in Pattaya with Jomtien Dive Centre turned out amazing. The crews are skillful, well organized especially my instructor, Mr.Wein. The food on board was good as well as the toilet shower and diving equipments.
Will be back for sure!

I did the PADI Advanced Open Water course with Jomtien Dive Center and it was absolutely fantastic!! The staff excellent, the boat(s) comfortable and well equipped and freshly cooked lunch delicious. Our instructor Rob was very professional and friendly - as all the staff members were. Thanks to him I got to participate in a bamboo shark release - not something you get to do with every dive center. I felt really welcomed. If I only could I would stay longer and do more dives with them. Could not have had a better experience. 6/5, highly recommend! Thanks everyone, hope I can come back at some point!

This is the place to book. They own the boats and many operations do not. Very well organized and responsive. Picked me up at my hotel in Na Jomtien. Boats have bathrooms! They feed you a delicious lunch. They have coffee and tea and water on board.

For safety I felt they were very good. The ratio of divers to dive master was about 3-1. My dive master Alan was very patient and helped me through some issues at the surface with my mask. Gary the GM was also with us and adjusted my computer which was set incorrectly. I really liked these guys.

I wanted to see turtles and especially the blue spotted ray. Alan found us rays on both dives and two turtles including a sleeping hidden one on our second dive.

Highly recommend Thai company. They made it easy!

We went diving with this dive shop and complained about unprofessional dive guide who had hangover. as a result, this evening, owner of the shop ambushed my friends and attacked one of us hitting his face with the glass. as a result police was called and the owner of this shop is under investigation.

do yourself a favor stay away from Jomtien Dive Center, they are short tempered unprofessional people.

I would like to say a big THANK YOU to the person or persons that have written this article. Unfortunately it does go to show that Trip Advisor does have a few problems. When somebody can create a false account to try to discredit a company is wrong. However in general trip advisor does do a really great job and we are in the process of speaking to trip advisor now. This Person or Persons ‘WE CAN CATAGORACALLY SAY HAS NEVER DIVED WITH US AS A CUSTOMER HERE AT JOMTIEN DIVE CENTER'. However we do have an idea,we are thinking it could be a couple of our competitors trying to discredit all the work we are doing and have done. Jealousy is not a very nice trait. Also one more point, all the postings this person or persons have done are all on March 26th this month which is 2 days ago, so that means this account was only setup 2 days ago ?. Unfortunately we are now putting this in to the hands of our lawyer for liable with the hope of try to find this person or persons. What it does do, is to make us more resolved in doing the things we are doing, knowing we must be doing something right, carrying on with our philosophy of ……Our Customers are the most important people and every customer does count. Trying to give good value for money and the best prices we can, good education, good experiences with a lot of fun, also meeting some amazing people and becoming there friends for life. So I would like to say again THANK YOU to this person or persons or even company. It will only make us stronger and more determined.

When you dive with Jomtien Dive center (JDC) you know you're among friends. Gary is fun to be with and he excels as an instructor. His concern for your safety is geniune. Louise, Jeshe and Dome are the other instructors who are wonderful as well. I am diving the with JDC next time I'm in Thailand.

I'm back from vacation a few days in Thailand and I must say that I have left to Jomtien Dive Center friends. The words that I have taken the attention from the first moments with Gary were: relax and fun! Their smile and their peace accompanied me to discover the world of diving and then with their professionalism to do the Open Water course. It was like discovering a little myself.
Thanks also to Gary over Brandon and Dom and then Desi and Dan and staff, really good, friendly and very professional.

Sono tornato da pochi giorni dalle vacanze in Thailandia e devo dire che ho lasciato al Jomtien Dive Center degli amici. Le parole che mi hanno colpito fin dai primi momenti con Gary sono state: relax e fun! Il loro sorriso e la loro pace mi hanno accompagnato a scoprire il mondo delle immersioni e poi con la loro professionalità a fare il corso di Open Water. E' stato scoprire anche un pò se stessi.
Ringrazio oltre a Gary anche Brandon e Dom e poi anche Desi e Dan e lo staff, veramente bravi, simpatici e professionali.
