Phoenix is an award winning 5 star dive school that offers both SSI & PADI courses from beginner to instructor. We are located in the heart of Koh Tao’s main backpacker beach, Sairee. This gives us one of the best locations on the entire island and we are lucky enough to have a beachfront dive school, two big dive boats, and a resort with its own dive pool.

We have been certifying divers since 2003 making us one of the first dive schools on sunny Koh Tao. Our team of instructors headed by the most experienced SSI instructor in the world and by one of the most prestigious instructor trainers ensures you will always have a fun and safe experience.

Our small group sizes, ability to teach in a variety of languages and well maintained equipment are just a few of the many reasons why we are more than just a dive school. Come and join the Phoenix family!

We dove with Phoenix divers while we were in Koh Tao. Price includes accommodation (and you can upgrade for a little extra). I did the advanced and my boyfriend did 5 fun dives. Also the night dive is really cool. It was a lovely experience and Hugo is a great instructor. We would definitely recommend them.

I did my open water diver license with 2 friends at phoenix divers. It was a fantastic experience! The diving school was very good and familiar. Also the group size was never higher than 5. Me and my friends can totally recommend this school! And many thanks to our great diving instructor Fabian!

Doing my Open Water with the legendary Claus was an honour and also great fun, I would recommend diving with Phoenix to anybody. But I would also advise against staying in the accommodation (AC Resort), which is pretty grotty.

Hi Roland, Thanks for taking the time to write us a review. Yes Claus is great, he should be, he's actually the most experienced SSI instructor in the world! Our open water course is 8,500thb which includes 4 nights of accommodation at the neighbouring resort. The price is extremely competitive and obviously the rooms that are included are basic, backpacker... More

High quality equipment, education and a lot of cool people and fun. Those were my four days at the Phoenix Divers on Koh Tao. I'm on a world trip and I visited more then ten diving schools during the last 5 months. But these guys are really the best! At first, I asked myself if there is quantity before quality... More

Throughout the whole course I felt informed, supported and as if I was being carefully monitored to ensure I was ok at all points in the course & during every... More
