We booked and payed for a liveaboard. 38000 baht. When we returned next day to try out equipment the shop was empty. As others have stated, the owner took everything of value in the shop and disapeared. STAY AWAY FROM FRANKIE D HEWER! He is now wanted by the police.

Confirming the previous comment, the owner Franky D Hewer is a thief and a liar. We paid the 50% deposit via paypal 10 days before the liveaboard, on the 5th of February. Everything was set and we were very excited about this. Today, 16th of Feb, we arrive at airport, nobody to pick us up, all phone numbers out of... More

My wife and I just came back from a liveaboard with this company with very mixed emotions. The boat was called Sea of Fantasy I, and we went to Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock. We are both experienced divers, thus we have experienced other liveaboards and day boats, but unfortunately we can not in any way recommend this... More

We booked our 4 night / 3 days liveaboard several months before our trip, and everything was managed via emails with Franky, from Eden Divers Khao Lak, who even booked a Hotel Room for... More

We had an excellent time on board with all the staff as well as the customers. Tod, the tour leader, is a great guy and after his very special wakeup call and an espresso coffee(yes an espresso coffee machine on board ! ) all you can say is 'Let's go diving' ... We did a nitrox course on board as... More
