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!

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.

My Girlfriend and I dived with Pablo our instructor and he was great ! Fun , and strict when he had to be , a very good balance .
Super patient with us , even when we took longer to get things right .
Which made the one on one experience really really worth it !
The small private groups make a difference .
Really enjoyed it .

Booked a last minute solo trip to Phuket with an Open Water Diving Course with SSSPhuket. Had an awesome trip with an unexpected with a 1 on 1 diving instructor course from the super responsive booking and advise with Jean, to my dive instructor/buddy Pablo. From what I knew, SSSPhuket is one of the rare few companies that conducts courses with 1 group at a time regardless from 1pax to as big a group as you wish. Don't need to worry about being put together with random strangers and having to wait. The learning and diving experience was based on my own learning curve and confidence level! As for Pablo, what I say about this fantastic instructor that made me feel safe with his knowledge and experience to his amazing hospitality to ensure everything was in order and enjoyable at all times! Pablo ensured I was comfortable and confident throughout the trip! Will definitely recommend anyone who is considering a trip to Phuket or diving to have no qualms to book with SSSPhuket and dive with Pablo anytime! 😀

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!

My daughter did the course and did really enjoy it. Her teacher Lea was really nice to her and made her feel at ease not only underwater but also in between the dives.
Thank you to all the team too as they all were really nice and helpful.

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.

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!
