We did the scuba review at Japanese Garden and another dive to White Rock, Max was awesome for both dives. He was very knowledgeable and patient. All the staff were very friendly and the boat and equipment were in excellent condition. There were about 5 small groups diving with us (there were 3 in our group) which was awesome. You... More

Master divers have lovely staff and are great at communicating over email with any enquiries you may have. I only had two dives (already PADI qualified) but they were both great!

My original plan was to just do my Open Water certificate here. I booked it over a travel agency, they mixed up the fun dives with the OW course though and it was open dated, also I couldn't come to the island at first as of monsoon rains, so a huge mess with fixing a date to start with and...

I have visited and dived in Koh Tao a few times. I wanted to complete my IDC and asked a friend who is an instructor on the island if he had a recommendation. He immediately said MD and said Gaz the course director was THE man on the island to learn to be an instructor with. That's a massive compliment... More

He found the following three things excellent about Master Divers 1) They used real scuba equipment, not kidstuff 2) They took him to real dive sites in the sea where he saw fish... More

After three years diving at many of the schools on the island and gaining my Dive Masters, I looked for a school that would take me further into instructor level training. I chose Master Divers due to their reputation, helpful and friendly staff, outstanding organisation and professional approach to my enquiries. The 'bar' was set high by their course director,...

Fantastic dive school, very professional. Very small groups, just 2 of us with one instructor. We did our padi open water course and felt very looked after the entire time. For first confined dive we were out on the dive boat so we really got to enjoy the tropical water and fish and weren't stuck in a swimming pool. Really... More
