Hi Jeff, thanks so much for your review and we're delighted you enjoyed the time you spent with us snorkeling. Safety is always our priority as well as showing you as much of the underwater world that we can. The sandbar at Japanese Gardens is natural, its a submerged ridge of sand that joins the 2 islands and can be seen depending on the tide and waves. Most of the year, its available for tourists to sunbathe on! Best regards, The Dive Academy

Professional team - good equipment - beautiful reef with loads of fish - good food - great service Only thing: We would have loved to have more time at Koh Tao, as the boat ride takes 3 hours both ways and the snorkelling was 2 hours only.

Hi Viktoria, Thank you for your review and we are glad that you enjoyed the beautiful reef and marine life. On our comfortable and fast speedboat the trip to Koh Tao from Samui takes around one hour and twenty minutes. A return trip taking less than three hours.

I researched The Dive Academy prior to arriving at Koh Samui and knew from the reviews it should be good if not excellent, I wasn’t disappointed. Great team and a great crew and boat. Professional and knowledgeable which is what you want when taking a plunge. I desperately
