My husband, myself, and our two teenage daughters took the 3-day PADI open water certification. Dmitry from Scuba Birds was efficient and clear in communication & very helpful once we arrived in Ko Tao.

Kray Farrow was our instructor and I was extremely pleased with his calm, patient teaching - especially when helping our teens who had never gone diving before.

On an instructional level, Kray was clear, helpful, calm (which helped ME stay calm), & knowledgeable of his craft. He was also fun, which definitely kept my kids’ attention. And prior to dives, he always gave us an idea of the things we might see, and pointed things out along the way.

The best part - our whole family is now certified!!! We look forward to more dives!

I highly recommend both Scuba Birds & Kray as an instructor!

Incredible experience facilitated by a friendly and very knowledgeable team. I completed my PADI Open Water in 3 days and enjoyed every minute.

I had only snorkled a handful of times before this course and had never swam with fins, so our instructor Soonie really had her work cut out for her and she did a fantastic job. Teaching a wide variety skills, being patient when things needed explaining a few times and still managing to make the whole experience fun, all the attributes you would expect from a great teacher.

100% recommended these guys and hope to be getting back for some fun dives ASAP! (They love a good acronym)

My partner and I learnt to scuba dive with Said. Despite my initial underwater anxiety, Said was sooo patient and reassuring, I likely would have quit the course had he not been so nice. It was the most surreal and amazing experience both my partner and I had ever done. We will definitely return in 4 weeks to do our advanced scuba course. We also did a few fun dives with Zlata after we got our certificate and she was so friendly and knowledgeable, knew where to look for the cool sea creatures we wanted to see. Also the cheapest scuba diving around for such amazing quality and a great team!

It was an amazing experience that undoubtedly turned my life upside down, literally and figuratively! I want to express my gratitude to the Scuba birds diving center for the high-quality instruction throughout the training, six exciting dives, and a special thanks to instructor Said who is the coolest diver with incredibly calming energy, He managed to teach me something to such a fearful and unpredictable psycho, to calm me down underwater. You can congratulate me, now I am a PADI Open Water Diver and can dive to a depth of 18 meters anywhere in the world! I advise everyone to Scuba birds dive center where you can take courses in English or Russian at a very pleasant price! Will definitely return for Advanced Open Water when the opportunity arises.

I first contacted Scuba Birds off google and spoke with Dimitry who was very friendly and enquired all my questions as I haven’t been diving before and wanted to know more about the Open Water Padi Course. He explained the structure perfectly.

We got to Koh Tao and our instructors Said and Zlata were really helpful and knowledgeable in teaching us the skills of the course. They were very calm and patient when we were doing all the skills testing we needed to learn for the course which was amazing as it can be very stressful doing the skills training underwater if you haven’t been scuba diving before.

Would definitely recommend this scuba diving agency for those who want to do the Padi open water course.

We had an incredible experience, diving as a couple, with another group of 3. Our 2 instructors, Said and Zlata were wonderful, patient, knowledgable and made us feel safe and confident. The dive spots were beautiful, and we had plenty of time underwater. We will certainly be back again for more dives! Highly recommended.
