My experience coursing up with Sunshine divers was outstanding, you would be hard pressed to find a more energetic, knowledgeable and profession staff of Dive instructors anywhere. I traveled to Koh Tao alone and from day one everyone at Sunshine divers made me feel welcome and part of the family. If you plan on going to Koh Tao for dive...

The diving school is great, there's nothing wrong about that. But so there are many on Ko Tao. The accommodation in the resort attached to it is poor though. We stayed in Sunshine 2 I think and had a bungalow 50mtrs from the beach bar which kept on blaring loud music until 1.30am. So much for sleep and great if...

Thank you Mark for your response. I appreciate how you separated the Dive Centre Sunshine Divers to your comments about the Sunshine 2 bungalow & restaurant management and the bars.

I had been to Koh Tao a few times before at different dive shops but after hearing nothing but good things about sunshine divers I decided to do my Dive Master Training with them. Koh Tao already felt like my home and as soon as I arrived at Sunshine Dive Resort I knew I had found my family too. Every...

Completed my OW with Sunshine Divers and have nothing but nice things to say. Small groups and professional, experienced dive instructors. Natalie and her staff definitely go the extra mile to make sure that you are comfortable and enjoy every minute of the dive experience. Will return for future visits to Koh Tao and Sunshine Divers. Highly recommend Sunshine for...

I had the good fortune of discovering Sunshine Divers on Koh Tao in 2011 when I did my PADI open water certification. I returned again in 2012 to complete my PADI Advanced Open Water course and then again in May 2013 for several days of fun dives around Koh Tao. I can say with complete certainty that Sunshine Divers will...

Cool place to get your diving license, especially if you get to dive with Janice and Simon (don't know if they're still there, we went there almost a year ago). We really enjoyed it. You get to dive in small groups of people, which is always better. Relaxed atmosphere (having class and "studying" at the beach is priceless), cool bar.

I've been diving with Sunshine a few times now and this last time I brought some friends to do their OW, AOW and Rescue course with them. We were all very happy with this excellent dive shop.
