Avoid the crowds; dive and snorkel in very small groups with a focus on great personal service, safety and fun. Departing from the beach each morning at 9am, our two speedboats carry a maximum of 10 divers each to some of the best dive sites in Thailand. PADI courses available in several languages, and with typical group sizes of just 2 or 3 divers with each divemaster or instructor (max 4), diving is more than just a job for us. Enjoy our PADI 5-Star service and let some of the most experienced, friendly and professional dive instructors on Koh Lanta take care of you while you just sit back, dive and relax...

5月1日-5月5日在这里第一次潜水,拿到了OW证,拿到证后又和他们潜水了一天。我的教练是NOHN,一对一的教学,非常的友善和负责!他全程让我独立去操作和学习,刚开始我有一些害怕,可是3天下来我很感谢他,因为我能够独立完成整个潜水过程了。这里的教练们都特别地风趣幽默,很关心每一个船上的人,我与他们相处的非常愉快。KOH HAA和BIDA岛水底太美了,我忍不住都在水底尖叫起来。棒棒的。我的AOW课程还是会来这里继续完成的。因为和他们一起潜水感觉太棒啦~~ 推荐国内的小伙伴来这里学习OW~ 早上9点出海,下午1点半就回来了。可以在海边休闲地休息,时间安排非常合理啊~~~ 强烈推荐。This is my first time to dive and I am so glad that I choose Dive and relax. They reply email very soon and very patient. I am assured by the professional email reply. When I get there, everything is perfect. Very nice staffs and professional instrcution!! I took my OW course there. Nohn is my... More

I did my dive course with Dive and Relax and was so, so impressed. They are very professional right from your first inquiry through to your last dive. My instructor, Mayumi, was excellent. She very quickly assessed my confidence levels and adapted to suit my needs, was very encouraging and really enjoyed my over-excitement. I also really liked her concern... More

What can I say other than this is the best dive club ever. So professional, nothing is to much trouble. Friendly staff. The dive boat picks you up right from the beach at Castaway Resort. They have 2 boats, lots of snorkelling trips as well as divers, going to the best sites! Never crammed in, plenty of room on the... More

Before going to Dive & Relax I was very nervous about diving and had put it off for a long time. I'm so glad I picked such a reputable company and had the chance to experience an amazing first dive with an excellent instructor. I was lucky enough to have a one to one experience with Adam, who was patient... More

My partner and I did a morning snorkelling trip with Dive and Relax on my 30th birthday. The day was well planned from start to finish and it was really helpful to have an introduction session on what marine life we may see. The speedboat ride was safe and smooth getting us to Koh Rock in 45 minutes - much... More

I think the best dive experience I've ever encountered. Dives are well planned and thought out, and gear is taken care of (and cleaned) by the staff (no need to tote it to and from your hotel), The boat is well organized, your gear is set up and laid out before you. Safety concerns are explained in the predive meeting,... More

Booked two consecutive days of diving (four dives total) while travelling across Thailand. On the recommendation of the woman at the dive shop, I added a "refresher" course to the first dive, as it had been a couple years since my last dive. Could not recommend this enough! The one-on-one with the divemaster before and during the first dive gave... More

My husband and I dove with Dive & Relax 9 days during our two week stay on Koh Lanta and couldn't be happier. We really liked that they keep the dive groups small - many times it was just us 2 with a dive master. The boats are fast, which means you get home in time to enjoy the afternoon... More
