Description:

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.

Discovery team made me feel so comfortable during my dives and on the boat. Jeremy and Clark was so helpful and friendly. I have padi scuba diver certification and I felt safe with them. If I have chance to visit Samui again, I would certainly dive with Discovery.

We went to dive in Koh Tao, the Diving spot is amazingly beautiful, far better than Phi Phi where I also dived. It's a pretty big boat ride (more than one hour) but completely worth it. The instructors are amazing. Really nice, kind, funny and the best people ever to reassure you if you're feeling a bit nervous about the... More

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

The team of instructors is attentive, caring and so engaging. The atmosphere on the boat was fun and inspiring. It was my very first diving experience and these guys made me so comfortable... 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

Eric V, Owner at Discovery Dive Centre, responded to this review

Thank you for the nice review. Although we cannot always accommodate all requests for dropping of in Phangan, I am glad we could do that for you. Sometimes people such as yourself forget items on the boat and as we only use our own 3 speedboats with our own boat staff we are usually able to recover lost items and... More

HI Vandana, thank you for the great review of Discovery. We try to explain everything about the day so that we can put new divers like yourselves at ease. I am also glad you had a good time with Seb on your dive. We hope you come back and see us again. More

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
