I postponed my scuba dive for the second to last day of my visit. What a mistake! If I hadn't, I would have definitely done the 4-day open water certification course. Diving in Koh Tao is awesome! The marine life is beautiful and diverse. The water is warm, clean and clear. There are numerous diving schools on the island. While... More

I had a truly amazing experience obtaining my open water scuba certificate. I was lucky enough to have one-on-one training on the course because of the days I booked. I really felt accepted by the team which made the experience that much more enjoyable. I would highly recommend Planet Scuba to anyone looking to learn to dive on Koh Tao... More

Had a great time at Planet Scuba doing our open water, advanced diver and nitros tickets. My girlfriend was a bit nervous about doing the night dive but our instructor Brummie made her feel confident and safe about the whole thing. All the staff were great, we did a lot of shopping around and Planet Scuba seemed the most professional... More

Me and my girlfriend wanted to try scuba diving in Koh Tao and as we had already booked into pier 24 we thought we would try it with Planet Scuba. We were allowed to stay an additional 4 nights on top of the 3 we had already booked. Unfortunately my girlfriend didn't enjoy the idea of breathing under water and... More

I was definitely hesitant to ever try scuba diving but my husband loves it and wanted me to try. Since we were in Koh Tao for two days I decided if I'm going to go to Koh Tao then this is my time to try it out! I was very nervous at the beginning. Chris made me feel really comfortable... More

Thank you for the great review! It was a lot of fun diving with both you and your husband the other day. We try to be as flexible with our schedule as possible, and provide as much time and attention as an individual may require. And in the end, you seemed very comfortable. Keep diving!

I booked a series of 10 fun dives with Planet Scuba but unfortunately was injured so could only complete 6. Chris gave me a refund for the 4 dives I didn't do, I don't think many other dive operators on Ko Tao would do that. It is an SSI dive center, not PADI but it doesn't really make any difference...
