Diving with New Way was fantastic, mostly because of our instructor, Vlad. As a new diver, I was intimidated by learning how to use all the equipment, but Vlad's calm and professional manner quickly set me at ease. Throughout the open water course, Vlad made sure we were confident and comfortable as we mastered each skill, and I felt totally... More

We did our open water training with Vlad and it was phenomenal. He was the best instructor anyone could hope for. We had so much fun & Vlad's instruction was really easy to follow. An amazing experience. We especially loved Vlad and Hannah and we love scuba! Dive with New Way they're a friendly, professional company 😊!

Bangkok, Ayuthaya, Chiang Mai, Koh Tao, Ko Phangon.. Of all of this, our experiencing diving with New Way and becoming open water certified, absolutely made our trip. We originally started with the Scuba program but stayed to complete our Open Water and dive the infamous Sail Rock. Our instructor Wit was extremely professional, and made every part of our course...

My partner and I dived with New Way last year and loved it. The visibility was incredibly poor (and I'm from NZ so that's saying something haha) so sadly we didn't get to see much. But despite that we still had a great day and Alex made sure we were all safe and close by so we wouldn't lose one... More

Had a really great week diving with new way - amazing locations. All the instructors were really friendly, welcoming and such good fun. Small groups mean you get to know the instructors a lot better which makes the diving more fun. Our instructors Alex, Hannah and jonis were hilarious. Would recommend

Just finished the 4 day Padi award course at New Way Diving. Probably one of the most amazing experiences of my life! All the staff are such good fun and really friendly. All of the dives we did were in amazing locations and we saw loads of amazing fish. I cant wait to come back!

I just did my open water training with New Way and LOVED it. All of the staff members are so welcoming and easy going. The training was phenomenal and our teacher, Ang, was the greatest. He was knowledgable, experienced, and a 10/10 teacher. Will definitely come back to do more training here in the future

The best choice I made while in Ko Tao was taking my open water scuba course with New Way Diving. Couldn't have asked for a better instructor. Wit Morris was a great teacher, unbelievably knowledgeable about everything scuba diving, and overall awesome person. Made learning to scuba dive fun and easy. Enjoyed it so much that I decided to take... More

I took my Open Water PADI course at New Way with Edwin in February 2017 and had such a great experience I returned the following month for my Advanced course. Again, New Way was an awesome time. Small classes and small dive groups make it really fun and laid back. Alex was an awesome instructor, I had a really fun... More
