I did a two tank day dive with Scuba Nation. Emil was a fantastic dive master who did a thorough buddy check with me before the dive and pointed out cool worms, crustaceans and other things I would not have caught under the water. He also snapped some photos and emailed them to me after the dive. I would definitely... More

Our instructor Andy is extremely knowledgeable, a teacher at heart, teaches the skills in a way that makes it all feel reasonable and fun. He really makes it into a great experience, even the dullest swimming pool exercise feels fun. The... More

My boyfriend and I completed two fun dives around Koh Rong. Andy (we embarrassingly can't 100% remember if this is your name but we remember your stories of teaching in Manchester, your thick northern English accent and your tips for diving in the Philippines from your experience with your son!) was our instructor. He was absolutely great! He fully explained... More

My partner and I did the two day liveaboard with divemaster Andy. It was awesome! The liveaboard included use of their dive equipment, delicious food made by the boat crew, and five dives. Andy was very knowledgeable about the areas we were diving in, and was very accommodating overall. We had an awesome two days of diving with Scuba Nation;... More

I contacted scuba nation by email and had a fast and helpful exchange with them before booking a two-day overnight trip. I arrived the day before and got kitted up for my fun dives (I didn't have any equipment of my own so rented everything incl a dive computer). The staff at the office were very friendly and helpful. We... More

- My brother and I booked a Day Trip with Scuba Nation. He chose the 2 dives while I took the snorkelling option. His 2 first dives in SE Asia were great! - Our instructor, Liuxy, was amazing: very friendly, easy to talk to, caring. Thank you very much for everything! - We definitely recommend this Scuba Diving Center.

A very professional outfit. Excellent equipment and competent and clear briefings. Amongst other dives I did the 2 day liveaboard with Dive Leader Andy. From the departure from the Quay to return it was abundantly apparent that his aim was to make the trip as enjoyable and safe as was possible. underwater the interest was in small fish and coral...

It's a very slow 56 kilometres from Sihanoukville to Koh Tang aboard Scuba Nation's fishing boat/dive boat for this overnight live-aboard excursion. While the paying customers ate a so-so curry for supper, the Captain and crew dined on fresh caught fish. Why Scuba Nation would allow such an odd, weird and completely rude event to happen is beyond me. Oh,... More

Thank you for your nice comments about our dive instructors. We’re really glad that you were pleased with them. Having also had experience in Thailand and Australia among others, Andy (the Englishman) comes over each year to work for us and loves the diving here. We’re very sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy it. We have many excellent dive sites... More
