Crystal Dive School was great. Within two half days and two full days we had completed the classroom and pool portions of the training and had taken four open water dives to get our open water certification. The school is very well organized and our instructor, Neil was very good at explaining and modeling the skills. We enjoyed it so...

My friend booked for me the 1st step of diving courses (Open Water) at Crystal, while he was having his Rescue Diver and EFR courses. I have to say that my 1st contact with the instructor didn’t pass very well (we were a group of 5 OW with 1 instructor and 2 dive masters), I was about to stop my...

My 8 year old daughter had been so excited about coming to do Bubblemaker on Koh Tao and she just had the best time at Crystal. Her instructor was fab and made it fun and simple. She loved the pool day and was even more excited at getting a chance to do it again in the sea. Everyone at the...

Great course, amazing instructors, well run. Koh toa is one of the best locations in the world but also one of the cheapest. Crystal as a resort is extremely nice and well located. Definitely recommend it to anyone even considering trying scuba diving.

The school itself was fantastic. We had 3 instructors Simon, Carsten and Youri who were all professional, very funny and very engaged with us as a group. The pool session was very hot, with no shade So I think breaking that day up with a bit of theory would be good instead of 8 hours in the pool. The accommodation...

I am going to tell you the truth about Crystal Resort staff: they are simply the best! No games, no excuses just the real deal! I did a two month gruelling course with them recently and I found the instructors to be top quality and the executive staff to be exactly what you would want from executives: information gatherers and...

As a repeat customer to Crystal Dive since 2002 i have always had a fun relaxed and safe experience. The only thing letting the school down was the much needed make over the the School, Bar and restaurant. My recent visit in 2016 i was happy to see the school and bar restaurant have all been replaced with new modern...
