Amazing experience with the Open Water
Feb 2020 • Couples
My boyfriend booked the open water with SSS Phuket Dive and Surf Center in Kata Beach following the good reviews and it won't let you down. Since the first moment doing the exercises in the swimming pool you can see that they don't only have good dive instructors but people who have dedicated their entire life to diving and its their true passion, this is the case of Ned. His philosophy for the Open water is not only taking care of new students so they can pass their exam but develop the skills so you can become a diver and be able to face any situation under the water. He really impressed by his knowledge, the patience, the educational skills and his sympathy! Diving and learning how to dive next to him is a truly experience, but also his passion for animal wildlife. Definitely recommended!

Exceeded all my expectations!
Oct 2019
Walked in off the street to the shop and the whole experience was exceptional! Our instructor for the open water course was Ned and we could not have asked for more, Ned was professional, with vast experience and always engaging and entertaining. I will be directing all my friends and family who want to dive to this crew and specifically to Ned. We can not thank him enough and hope to return to dive with him again.

Amazing diving and surfing experience
Oct 2019 • Couples
A lot of thanks to Lea and SSS Phuket for the amazing diving and surfing experience!!! Lea is a very nice and fun and great teacher for my SSI
diving course and the diving trip to Bay one is super fun! We meet a lot of fish and carols while we practice our diving skills :) The surfing trial session is a lot of fun, too! We can stand on our board very soon and I can even make turns and pop-up in the end! We also have photos for our best memory for diving and surfing in Kata!

Amazing Diving Experience!
We had a great day. There were a lot of divers onboard. The diving site we went to was beautiful and we had a lot of time to explore them as the boat got there quickly. The crew was very friendly and helpful before after each dive. Our instructor Ned was an excellent diver and was able to teach us all the necessary skills to become certified open water divers with ease.

Fantastic Diving Adventure
Aug 2019
Becoming Scuba certified is on my bucket list and has been something I have looked forward to for a long time. My friend and I just completed the Open Water diving course. We chose the “Premium” option and it was an excellent value. We completed multiple dives and by the end I felt very comfortable setting up and checking my equipment and, subsequently, diving. Our instructor, Ned, was very knowledgeable and patient in helping us to learn and develop our techniques. I appreciated that he was very conscientious when teaching us about all the safety and emergency procedures. I also have to give a shout out to the boat crew, they were super friendly and attentive and the food was great!

Amazing dive experience thanks to Pablo :)
Jul 2019 • Friends
It was a fun and amazing 3 days course with SSS Phuket. Highly recommended Pablo. B as he makes the trip assured and enjoyable, was afraid at first as I have trouble equalising my ears but he stayed closed and reassured me that it’s okay with equalising my ears slowly. It’s so amazing that we managed to get through all these with lots of fun and enjoyment thru whole dive trip. The diving experience was great, but the company and my friendly instructor makes everything even better.

Thank you SSS Phuket and Pablo especially for these great 3 days experiences! :)
