We had an amazing experience with Ady and his team. Ady and Sebastian are great teachers. Have lots of patience with us, we got exclusive help in English when something was not easy to understand as my English was not perfect. I can recommend them to everybody! Good luck guys!

I went here for a week ago. This was the first time I was scuba diving without knowing anyone. Directly when I meet my diving buddy and my instructor I felt comfortable and I had a really good time diving with my team. If I would go back to ko lanta and do some more diving I would definitely go... More

Great team at Flip Flop, 2 great dives at Koh Haa. An Early start but great coffee at Flip Flop Dive centre. A short ride to the port at Sala Dan and the boat was underway promptly. Several dive schools shared the one boat economising the cost of the trip. The boat however was very spacious for the numbers of... More

Hi Neil Thanks for the great review! Diving with experienced divers such as yourself, gives us the opportunity to dive the lesser dived areas and do a bit of exploring ourselves. I had a great day, and still talk to the staff about what it could have been out there! It was certainly a "big" something. Again, thanks for the... More

From the first moment we stepped into The Flip Flop Divers shop we were welcomed and taken care of. They made their best to help us, make us feel safe both on land and in the water. I've had some issues with equalization and they were great with letting me take my time and made sure I had all the... More

My wife is a snorkeler and I am a diver. We had a fantastic day at Ko Haa. The site was perfect for both of us. Ady and Yannis are extremely professional and incredibly knowledgeable about diving and the marine life we experienced at Ko Haa. We could not have asked for a better day. The "Chimney" is one of...

My boyfriend and I wanted to do our Open Water Padi and decided to go with Flip Flop and had an incredible time. Our instructor was Yannis (who we were told by others is frequently the most qualified on the boat!). He was very calm and pragmatic and led us through the course over three days. Our first day we...

We dived with Flip Flop last week, I only called in because it was next door to my hotel but I am so glad I did, I feel like I made friends there rather than just dived with people. Only intended to dive the once but having met the people I was inspired to go again. Ady and his team... More

I've dived with Flip Flop on numerous trips to Koh Lanta. Ady and the team are an awesome bunch of people to dive with. If you want to dive safely, see some cool things and generally have a great time you should dive with these guys. They have a wide number of dive sites accessible, even the beginner dive sites...
