My friend and I decided to dive with Dive Tours on this holiday having been out of the water for several years. We did a two dive trip over to Racha Noi and Racha Yai. Sam looked after us for the day and did a fabulous job, making sure we were comfortable back in the water and refreshing some skills at the start of the first dive.

The boat was good, the equipment in decent nick (we didn’t take any with us on this trip), and we were lucky enough to be diving on a quiet day so we had plenty of room and good company!

I’d definitely dive with Dive Tours again, very professional and a lot of fun. Shame we didn’t have time to do more on this trip.

Oh and you can buy photos of your dive too, which takes away all the hassle of trying to get pix whilst figuring out buoyancy.

We turned up on Tuesday and got the plans sorted for the hubby to go out on Wednesday for 3 dives.
All explained on their website.
Picked up at 730 and in the water by 10.
Sam the dive instructor was originally from Sydney Australia. Saw lots of fish and interesting sites.
Professional, food delish and ALL staff were great.
Thanks A+.s

We have booked a fun dive (Racha Noi) and came back for two full days afterwards: Koh Phi Phi and King Cruiser Wreck, FTW! People working at Phuket Dive Tours are lovely and helpful; we even got to order food and eat with them at the office - and got sore throat medicine as well :-). The organization was all well done and they never forgot about us when it came to pick us up ;-P.
Most important, the divings were top notch. We always have had GOOD food served on boats and enough time to prepare equipment and ourselves in general before descending.
The instructors (Sam and Henri) explained everything in details and they were open to answer any questions or doubts. They took a good care of us under the water so we could do what we came for - enjoy diving!
Sam also conducted Advanced Open Water Diver for one of us. He delivered all needed materials, his wide knowledge and assured that all of the dives are safe and done properly; he also helped us to pick some equipment in his free time!
He is both PADI and SSI instructor so there is no restriction for agencies anymore! After each diving day, there is a possibility to buy high quality photos made by guides/instructors for quite cheap.
They are really reliable and safety is priority for them! There is no point to look for another diving company in Phuket.
They made our experience memorable: Diving at Phi Phi and Koh Dok Mai, with very impreSSIve conditions. We defenitely Recommend, so don't hesitate to Book an SSI Advanced Adventurer course with Phuket Dive Tours, you're gonna love it ;)

Did a "Try Scuba Diving" dive off the beach at Kata. Was something I always wanted to try but wasn't sure I wanted to fork out for a full dive course. Dave the owner/manager spelled out all the options available and the relevant prices without being a high pressure "salesman", which I really appreciated. I did the dive with Sam who took me through the safety introduction and then the dive. It was fantastic and something I will continue with in the future. Highly recommended.

Our trip to Phi Phi Islands with Phuket Dive Tours was by far our best day trip experience. The trip out was calm and scenic, the sites were beautiful and the team (shout out to Mike!) We're professional and fun. On top of that, the boat was spacious and the food (breakfast, lunch, snack and light dinner) was delicious. Would highly recommend this trip to everyone visiting that has time for a full day adventure. If you only have a short time, it's worth asking about Phuket Dive Tour's other dives!
