"Awesome scuba club, so friendly, the instructors are awesome, Gel is a legend! The staff are really friendly and welcoming to give any help and advice you need!! Really get on well with everybody there and it has a really nice family vibe to the whole place. Would definitely recommend to anyone heading to Koh Tao and hope to be heading back there in the future!!"


"I walked past Koh Tao scuba club after dinner on my first night here and it became my new family! They are extremely well priced, provides free accommodations when you do your open water and advance. Antonio was my instructor, who speaks French, Spanish and English. He was able to keep me calm the whole time (on my first day). The classes are small, max 4 people per class. I was lucky and it was only the 2 of us. I highly recommend them!"


"ผมมาเที่ยวเกาะเต่ากับภรรยาครับ ดำน้ำกับที่ร้าน 4 dives พี่เจ้าของเป็นคนไทย ใจดีมากกก ดูแลพวกเราเป็นอย่างดี คือพวกผมมาดำน้ำก็ไม่ได้เช่ามอเตอร์ไซค์ พี่เจ้าของร้านก็ให้พวกเรายืมมอเตอร์ไซค์ขี่ไปกินข้าว (ขอบคุณอีกครั้งนะครับพี่น้ำ :-D) บนเกาะเต่าส่วนใหญ่จะหาร้านดำน้ำที่มีทีมงานคนไทยยาก ที่นี่มีทั้งเจ้าของและพี่ Dive Lead เป็นคนไทย แถมยังใจดี คุยกันเข้าใจง่ายมากครับ แนะนำเป็นอย่างสูงสำหรับเพื่อนพี่น้องชาวไทยที่มาดำน้ำที่นี่ครับ Amazing service from the owner and staff. We will definitely come back here next time!"


"Loved scuba club! Got my open water and advanced here. Antonio is so great! Super knowledgeable and a great teacher. Highly recommended!"


"I couldnt recommend the scuba club more the hostel facilities were great and at the dive shop you were treated more like a family member then a walking ATM. I had Rodrigo as my dive instructor and the teaching was very good and fun to learn! Also its very nice speaking with Sandra who works at the shop and Dannys a top guy too."


"When we stayed in Koh Tao, we wanted to try diving, but there are soo many diving schools... So when we walked down the street we discovered Scuba Club and were invited to sit in. There, the staff explained everything and did a really good job in taking our fears away. We booked the evening before the Try-Dive. The diving was fun, we were 5 beginners and 2 instructors. They always calmed us down when panic rose. Between the first and the second dive we were offered cookies, pineapples, coffee/ tea and drinking water. Even though we didn't extend to the Diving License, the staff made us feel like home, like we were part of their diving family. We really enjoyed it and can just recommend this diving school:)"


"A friend recommended KT Scuba Club to me & I'm super glad I did the Open Water course with them. I'm usually anxious in the water but my instructor, Antonio, was very understanding and thoroughly explained every step to us. Over the 3 days, I got to do 6 dives at various locations for a very fair price (plus free accommodation). After diving with them, I feel a lot more confidence with myself in the water. The staff of the dive center were super nice and accommodating, I went to Koh Tao by myself and the staff treated me like their family! 11/10 recommend."

"It was a pleasure to dive with Koh Tao Scuba Club. It was my first time and the team was really kind and professionnal. Good price-quality ratio as well. Don't hesitate and go! I strongly recommend this club."


"Really felt like family at the club. You'll get a great price compared to some of the other shops. Smaller groups so you get more time to learn from your instructor. If you have any non-scuba related problems during your trip, one of Bina's nephews will sort you out haha The club is great with all their activities but if you're planning on doing a longer program like the advance or dive master, the club is especially rewarding. If you're looking to dive in Koh Tao, drop by and give them a chat!!"


"I did both my Open Water Course and my Advance Adventurer Certification at Scuba Club and I have nothing but great things to say. It's smaller dive club so you really get to know the people you dive with and the entire Scuba Club team (we had an amazing BBQ with the instructors one night) and it's the staff that make this diving school stand out. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful with anything diving related or anything you need help with at all. When it comes diving it Koh Tao you're going to have dozens of places to choose from but I would highly recommend Scuba Club to all my friends and family."


"Super friendly staff, ready to make your dive and stay on the island the best experience possible.The open water course is done in groups no larger than 4 people which allows for a lot of personal time with the instructor. Special thanks to the staff for making the course a great experience and Jacob our awesome dive instructor!"


"The people are so friendly and nice there! Bina, the lady who runs the club, was very sweet, explained everything and gave the best deals for dives in Koh Tao 🙂 Thank you, Bina! My instructor, Jacob, who trained me during the Open water course, is a great diver, experienced and caring instructor and on top of all, can speak 4 or 5 languages fluently, which really helps when there are people who speak different languages in a group. I highly recommend this club! I had so much fun with these guys! Katia"


"I can't swim but the people at Koh Tao scuba dive club made it best experience. Friendly people and they helped me over come my fear and my first dive. My friend did the deep dive 10m. More pictures will follow soon and special thanks to Beena the place manager and my instructors - Rodrigo and Sophia."


"Is small club was extremely friendly stuff. I did 4 dives in small groups with professional instructors and i enjoyed the experience."


"Found this place just by walking on the street. A very nice lady explained everything I needed to know about the fun dive. The instructor in the dive was super professional and nice. An advantage of this club is you go out in a very small group (3) and so it is intimate and you can see more stuff!"


"The club is very nice and friendly. I love that. I hope to come back again. So I recommend everyone you should learn scuba in this."


"Did a fundive today and really enjoyed the friendliness of the crew. The shop is full of live and you will feel welcome in a second. My advise: If you're interest to dive. Go to the store and have a talk. You will not regret it. Thanks for accomadating my dive."


"Koh Tao Scuba Club place where you get lots of personal attention. The club has a warm and inviting atmosphere. At first, I met Bina who was very warm and helpful with all the practical stuff and made us feel at home. Jacob, our instructor, was very approachable and very flexible when it comes to the design of the SSI program. Definitely recommend to dive with him when you want to get your diving certificate! Thanks for everything Bina, Jacob and everyone else from the club!"


"Great experience with beautiful people. Family atmosphere, great care and super service. Accomodation included. And super price. Just next time, they need to order better weather ;)"

"I usually don't write reviews but in this case I just had to 🙂 It was my first dive . Scuba Club was definitely an amazing experience. All the staff ( crazy instructors ��� ���reception, sanda, boat crew, hostel staff) Especially Sanda Bena Lama , just love you the way you care �������were really fantastic, always made me feel welcome and kept me with a smile on my face the whole time. I got TSD and a few fun dives with them and would definitely recommend Scuba Club for it. Thank you guys!"


"A great place to learn how to dive! I took the PADI open water and PADI advanced courses with Rodrigo and he is a friendly and competent instructor. The acommodation is has nothing of special but is perfect for what you need, a capsule bed, a/c, internet and clean toilet/shower. This place can be the cheapest place in the island, so talk with they about the price!"


"The whole crew is like a family it's so non commercial. Free accommodations (very basic). V's a doll. Our dive master, Jacob is the coolest Dutchman you'll find on the island. A near perfect experience."


"It was an awesome time with the scuba Club Team. Everybody is friendly and helpful. If you need any help with your further planning you can just ask them. Nice Accomodation also. It was a pleasure to dive with Rodrigo and Jacob, the best Instructors and very nice, professional guys. So all in all everything was excellent! Thank you so much and See you soon!"


"Affordable, great diving experience with excellent instructors! We did our advanced adventure cert at Scuba Club Koh Tao. The people are friendly, funny, and so helpful! Made every dive wonderful. Will definitely come back here for further dives 👍 Thank you!"


"After a lot of debating between me and my girlfriend, we decided to go to the Scuba Club to do out SSI course. We made the best choice of our Thailand trip! The staff and instructors are amazing and will go out their way to help you with anything you need. A big shout out has to go to Sanda Bina Lama, who found us the nicest room we stayed in in Thailand, helped us in any way she could (even when we both got food poisoning) and treated us like family. This woman is one in a MILLION! Absolutely amazing!! Antonio and Rodrigo were awesome, always making it fun whilst having a lot of patience whilst teaching us. You can tell they really love their jobs and will take you to the best dive spots around Koh Tao. We will definitely be spending some time at the Koh Tao Scuba Club next time we are on the island and recommend it to anyone that visits. Thanks so very much again guys, you really did make our trip on Koh Tao amazing!!"


"Rodrigo and Jacob are both phenomenal dive instructors-- knowledgeable, patient, perceptive and calm. Also funny. Other dive masters I met were awesome as well, but I didn't get to dive with them. I had a great time and I would definitely go back. This is also one of the most inexpensive dive shops on the island, which is a huge plus considering Koh Tao is so cheap already and there are dozens of alternative options to choose from. Boat staff were great, and everyone at the shop is super nice as well, especially Olivia at the front desk."


"I had an wonderful experience with this diving school! The people are very friendly! And the prices compared with other diving schools are low! I had een amazing time with Jacob my dive instructor! Now I'm really addicted to diving because of him! Many thanks!!! Jules"


"Very lovely diving school, fair prices, great experience, extremely nice staff, especially Harry (bester Mann!) felt like a second home. Strongly recommended!!"

Manuel B

"Scuba club was accessible and the cheapest I found. All staff were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. They speak a plethora of different languages so I also got to learn some phrases for free. My diving instructors were attentive and obviously passionate about their profession. I got more than enough help in the water which i needed as I had some ear equalising problems. The service was so good i went for the advanced course which was also the cheapest around."

Josey F

"I went through Scuba Club to get my open water dive certification. The employees are extremely friendly and welcoming. My instructor Rigardo helped me with any questions or concerns I had about the program."

Logan R

"I did my advanced scuba course and several fun dives with the scuba club. The staff were incredibly helpful, especially Bina! Flawless operation! I will definitely be coming back!"

Nate B

"So me and my friend were looking for a good diving school. We walked in here because the staff looked friendly. We both got our SSI open water certificate, and what an amazing experience it was. The diving instructor, Jacob, was so nice, and incredibly patient. If you're reading this, thanks a lot man! The staff was also very helpful in getting around the island. Bina helped us a lot, in how to get off the island. And we had a small party after we got our certificate, which was very thoughtful. Thank you everyone at Scuba Club! See you next time!"

Pyke T

"I took the advanced dive course and it was great and the dive instructor were very nice (thank you Mark - Canada)! My girlfriend did 8 fun dives and she got amazed with the treatment of the dive Master (Kevin - China)! All the Scuba Clubs staff were so kind and atentious (thank you Sanda and team, you are fantastic)! They did all the best to provide us amazing diving experiences and we really felt we were among friends under a good vibe atmosphere. All the equipments offered on diving were at good conditions, and we felt safe. We strongly recommend diving with Koh Tao Scuba Club! Five Stars! Recommend"

Felipe H

"Cool diving best instructor staff are nice bina is the best we did our open water and advanced course me and my friend"

Fares Z

"This is the best scuba school in Koh Tao. It's not big, but very welcomed. And the woman working here named Sanda is really funny and interesting. She makes me laugh everyday when I learned my Master course. And she is the reason I did it here! Bingo!"

Kevin X

"We had an amazing time with scuba club. It was my first time diving and I was reasonably nervous, and my partner had his certification but wanted to come with me, they accommodated us both and gave him the freedom while looking after me. Both were very competitively priced and the staff - both front of house, dive instructor and back ground were fantastic - very friendly and gave us both confidence. Always safe and reliable, Thank you so much for such a great experience!"


"awesome school! can only recommend it! our instructor fabro was the best. fran behind the desk is the cutest! bina's crazyness is unforgettable and gel smiling face just heartwarming! all amazing the people here. one of our friend also did the advanced right after OWD and he loved it. met very nice people here. don't miss it! scuba club"

cris sarmiento

"Many thanks to great team, but in particular John my instructor. His knowledge, and attention to detail were amazing. Most importantly his calmness as a teacher underwater, using very clear visual instructions, with his pre-dive information, just make you as a student feel that bit more capable."

Graeme P

"Amazing. It's difficult to describe this place... There are so many scuba companies on Koh Tao and the big names obviously draw the majority, but Koh Tao Scuba Club is a hidden gem - and I can't recommend it enough."
