Description:

Discovery Divers is the premier 5-star PADI dive center in Koh Samui...

Discovery Divers is the premier 5-star PADI dive center in Koh Samui offering the highest quality of service for reasonable prices. We are one of the longest running dive shops on the island as having been in business for over 14 years and have the most experienced and respected full time dive staff in the Gulf of Thailand. Discovery is also one of the only diver centers who runs our own speedboats. We offer a full range of PADI courses from Bubblemaker, Discover Scuba diving and open water diver up to professional level divemaster training. We have full-time dive staff that speaks fluent English, German, French, Chinese, Cantonese, Japanese, Italian and Spanish. At Discovery Divers we are committed to fun and safety. We believe that the customers needs come first. This is why we have access to the widest selection of boats on the island including our own Discovery Divers speedboats and run numerous daily trips to all of the beautiful dives sites in the gulf of Thailand. We realize that it is YOUR vacation and usually can accommodate any request for courses or certified divers to go to the location you want to go on the day you want to go, with the type of boat (tour boat or speedboat)that you want to go on. We also offer photography services and rentals using top of the line Canon cameras and have console and wrist computers for use with courses or certified divers. This along with our stock of exceptional and modern dive equipment from Aqua Lung, Mares and Scubapro will make your dives safe, fun and worry free. Come by and see our dive shop, meet our staff, and see our onsite training pools, equipment room, washing area and classroom in front of the Amari Hotel in Chaweng Beach.

We had a great day out with the Discovery dive centre during our recent holiday in Koh Samui. 3 of us actually dived & 1 snorkelled (with a guide). On arrival at the dive centre a small breakfast was provided. Following briefings we set off by speedboat to Koh Tao - taking an hour & 20 mins. This was quite... More

I did my open water course here and thought the company was amazing with really friendly instructors. I've dived with a few companies in Thailand over the last few years and this is easily the best! Great people and a great atmosphere- would happily recommend to anyone visiting.

My brother and i dived with discovery divers. We took the exploratory dive as my brother was not certified. From the moment we booked the dive (at their shop near festival center) their service has been extremely professional. We dove with Jen who was patient and informative at all times.

HI Justin, It was great having you and Jarrod diving with us. We're also glad that the two of you could get in some diving together as a family. As we have 15 full-time instructors we are able to keep the ratio of divers to instructors very low so everyone can enjoy their dives. Hope to see you guys back... More

In June of 2015 I went diving with Discovery Dive Centre and I'm so glad I did! From the first interaction with the staff, they were professional, responsive, and courteous. The rates for a 2 tank dive were competitive with the other island dive groups, and the check in process on dive day went smoothly. They even supplied hotel transfer,... More

Me and my wife were first time divers and were a bit nervous. But we had a total blast! Our instructor (French guy forgot his name) - was funny, and helpful and walked ur though the basics and took us to dive right away. The water in koh phangan was great - underwater life was colourful and abundant
