Wanted to get the PADI Open Water Diving certificate and these guys seemed very reliable. Cheaper than their competitors because they don't have some expensive location / store. The course consisted of 3 consecutive days: one with theory and a confined (swimming pool) dive in which you get acquainted with all the tasks, and two days with open water dives... More

Did an introductory dive afternoon with Petra Brink at Santana Dive Centre. I was a bit nervous and when I first went underwater I panicked and thought I couldn't breathe but Petra calmed me down really well and I realised I was fine. We did all the exercises very calmly, following her and throughout the dive she kept a close... More

The German crew of Santana diving is always fun, helpful and up for a chat! I'm pretty high maintenance for diving gear (6 foot 4, 300lbs) and they went to the aquamaster with me, lend me their gear and made sure I was finally enjoying to dive! Henning and Andi are brilliant instructors and it shows how much I feel... More

Our guide Petra was wonderful, very knowledgeable and helpful. She always made sure we would have the best possible dive by staying away from the crowded area and by taking her time and... More

I had an awesome Discover Scuba Dive from Sanata Diving, Phuket. The Instructor ANDY was very very experienced one, who not only helped us teach techniques but also helped us to be as ease and enjoy my life time experience. Thank you Santana Diving Centre and Daniel for getting a seat. :)
