Discovery Divers is the premier 5-star PADI dive center in Koh Samui...

Discovery Divers is the premier 5-star PADI dive center in Koh Samui offering the highest quality of service for reasonable prices. We are one of the longest running dive shops on the island as having been in business for over 14 years and have the most experienced and respected full time dive staff in the Gulf of Thailand. Discovery is also one of the only diver centers who runs our own speedboats. We offer a full range of PADI courses from Bubblemaker, Discover Scuba diving and open water diver up to professional level divemaster training. We have full-time dive staff that speaks fluent English, German, French, Chinese, Cantonese, Japanese, Italian and Spanish. At Discovery Divers we are committed to fun and safety. We believe that the customers needs come first. This is why we have access to the widest selection of boats on the island including our own Discovery Divers speedboats and run numerous daily trips to all of the beautiful dives sites in the gulf of Thailand. We realize that it is YOUR vacation and usually can accommodate any request for courses or certified divers to go to the location you want to go on the day you want to go, with the type of boat (tour boat or speedboat)that you want to go on. We also offer photography services and rentals using top of the line Canon cameras and have console and wrist computers for use with courses or certified divers. This along with our stock of exceptional and modern dive equipment from Aqua Lung, Mares and Scubapro will make your dives safe, fun and worry free. Come by and see our dive shop, meet our staff, and see our onsite training pools, equipment room, washing area and classroom in front of the Amari Hotel in Chaweng Beach.

This dive shop did an incredible job. Everything went seamless and the communication was perfect- the boat ride, the set up and break down of equipment, the briefing/debriefing, the help and security, the dive sites etc. Chris was an incredible instructor whom made my friend and I feel very safe, supported and comfortable. She constantly made sure we were getting... More

Very professional company and staff. Chris was a wonderful instructor/lead, I haven't dove in years and she was very patient and nurturing! I will definitely be diving with them again when I return to Koh Samui!

I had a very good experience with Discovery Dive Centre on Koh Samui. I have been taught by James, who is a very patient and understanding teacher. All staff members were helpful at any time and, what I liked most, in a very good mood all the time. That was really motivating. Our group was taken to different locations every... More

My friend and I signed up to do a discover dive on a whim and found this company on TripAdvisor. We both thought the idea of scuba diving could be fun, but had never done more than snorkel. Originally skeptical of all of the great reviews, but after completing two dives, they could not have been more accurate. The staff... More

Discovery Dive Centre is the best company I've ever dived with! If you're diving Koh Samui - go with these guys! They provided breakfast while everyone was getting signed in and geared up, their boat is awesome and the crew is awesome. They picked me up from my hotel and dropped me off at Koh Phangnan, Thao was my dive... More

Being a non swimmer, Discovery guided me so well... in fact they are only on in Koh Samui to explain diving and its consequences properly in english. Special mention to Man for making me choose discovery and Sebestian for guiding me so well underwater...thank you guys

Our hotel recommended the team at Discovery for a full day of diving. They called to confirm my experience level (I am an advanced diver) and let me know they would collect me the next morning. I was with a friend who does not dive and came along for snorkeling. They picked us up on time and shuttled us to... More

我沒有任何潛水經驗,但是就是想去Koh Tao 潛水。事先我和在Koh Tao上許多潛水店聯絡,最後考慮交通與時間之後放棄,才能幸運地在samui找到discovery diving center. 不論是信件往來的Richie ,帶領我潛水的Elise,及其他夥伴都是非常優秀的。飯店與碼頭間有車接駁,有自己的遊艇能出海,有美味的午餐,以及細心耐心兼具的教練,中英文都有,太棒了,不推薦對不起自己。 Thank you very much for such a wonderful experience. This was my first scuba diving. I enjoyed it although I was irrational from the beginning, haha. I always remember amiable Elise that she lead me to the ocean. We will see each other again.

I traveled to Ko Samui for a weekend - traveling solo. Discovery Dive centre was the perfect starting point as I enjoyed amazing underwater life, as well as made incredible contacts for the remainder of my stay. Totally recommended. Everything went perfect: crew, pickup from hotel, equipment, dive, people... You can't miss it!

Hi Lukasz, Appreciate the review and extremely happy to see that you had a great time diving with Discovery divers. That is the bonus of a dive excursion that apart from the dive experience itself you get to meet great people that more then often become friends for life. See you on your next tour Team Discovery More
