Oceanic is a very professional divecenter which my brother and me have been using now for many years. Good and fast communication with the main office and Rachel. Our well known instructor and dive master Chris Stout makes an excellent job! Very well done! Carl and Henrik

Did 2 dives with Oceanic during a recent stay in Phuket and am nothing but complimentary of Joel, Rachel and the team. First dive was a beach dive, great way to ease back in given it had a few months since my last dive, while the second was a great, day long adventure to Phi Phi islands. Oceanic were great.... More

Had a great father daughter experience with two discovery dives at Ko Racha Yai. Our dive instructor 'Chris' was just excellent (very friendly and knowledgable). The staff at Oceanic were super friendly and provided great service, I can't recommend them highly enough. Great day, great experience, fantastic memories.

Oceanic Dive Center was recommended by divemasters I dived with previously in Koh Tao. Email communication with Rachel to plan and schedule the dives were smooth and timely. I did one shore dive at Kata South Reef and a 3-dive day trip to Racha Yai/Racha Noi islands with Chris. Chris was very helpful and attentive to my needs and expectations.... More

We visited Phuket in early November, 2016, with grand ambitions and little time to get in the water. Random advice: don't try to see 4 countries in 2 weeks. Anyway, we were also difficult because my husband is a diver, and an ambitious one at that, and I prefer to float atop the water lazily. At first I thought I... More
