From start to finish a great experience. From enthousiasm in the dive shop, the free pick up and drop off, our kit being taken care of for us, the great dive sites, delicous fruit and noodle lunch, professional boat crew and most of all fab dive instructors and dive masters. We were with a small group of divers of varying abilities and all were catered for to their individual needs. We went diving with our 12 year old who had never tried diving before. We were assigned a lovely dive master who really looked after our daughter. This gave us real peace of mind and because of that we had our own great dive experience. Thank you Lotus for that! Would highly recommend!

Me and my boyfriend took the PADI Freediver Course with Daniele. First day was a pool session for skills and static apnea practice. The second day was a trip with speed boat to Koh Haa were we practiced deeper diving with the skills we had learnt the previous day.

This course was really good, it was a fantastic experience diving to depths without SCUBA. I really liked Daniele as a teacher as well, he was calm, friendly and handled everything very well. I felt secure practicing with him.

I can highly recommend taking the Freediving course with Daniele and Phoenix Divers!

I would highly recommend Phoenix to any diver or snorkeller, like me. The crew was great, helpful, insightful and courteous.

I had booked the Koh Rok snorkelling package. The dive site is approx 1.45 hours from Saladan. It's as promised, spectacular. We did 2 snorkelling trip around the island.

My personal highlight was the swim to a deserted beach. We jumped off the boat and swam to the beach. The only description of the beach i can think off - Maldives. Stunning.

Thanks for the trip!

Just arrived home after a great diving holiday in Koh Lanta. This was our third visit to sal a Dan using Phoenix divers and we were not disappointed. The new owner Danielle and his partner Valentina run a professional service where safety comes first but this does not distract from a fun day out with excellent diving. We did a 10 day dive package which provided us with a good variety of dive sites. We had an amazing dive where we spent a good 15 minutes with a sleeping leopard shark ( he did wake up briefly but saw us had a quick swim round and went back to sleep!) the coral gardens were beautiful there was a good variety of fish a few black tip reef sharks and a first for me a cave dive with an airlock which meant we surfaced into a cave which was stunning a very weird but interesting experience. The staff on the boat and all the dive instructors were professional we had a few dives with Eak a great guy with a sense of fun who found us plenty to see as did Danielle and Valentina. Captain Lee a quiet man but a great captain along with Sam ensured customers safety at all times. Lunch was yummy local food rather than the obligatory sandwich. Plenty of water and soft drinks all day along with fresh fruit. They also pick you up if your hotel is out of Sal a Dan itself. They look after your kit and set it all up for you so no carrying equipment back and forwards. So.if your looking for a dive company in and around Sal a Dan Koh Lanta we would highly recommend Phoenix divers we trusted them implicitly. Thank you Danielle and Valentina for providing us with a great diving experience. Jayne and David:)
