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.

The only issue i had was i paid 500 baht extra for nitrox and they forgot to load it. After the dive i asked to be reimbursed, and the manager wasnt around and noticed the dive masters walking around not knowing what... More

Today was a rainy day on the main island Koh Samui. That didn't deter the amazing tour guides from taking us out to snorkel at some of the smaller islands (koh Lam and surrounds) everything about this day trip was excellent. The price. The pick up. The speedboat quality and safety. The water and cool drinks on tap. And the... More

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.
