Our dive school wants to give you the customer the best dive experience we possibly can, so for people wishing to take a PADI course we make sure our groups are no bigger than 4 people this enables our experienced instructors to give you plenty of individual attention making you a better and safer diver...for certified people who just want to fun dive our dive leaders are very experienced with all the dive site's around this beautiful island and we have no limit on dive time our boat only goes out once a day for 2 dives so were not restricted by schedules...and our boat does not leave until 11pm this means no setting your alarm at 6.30 your are on holiday after all, also leaving at this time means we arrive at dive sites when other schools are leaving so we can spend more time looking at the fish and not other divers so come join our magical underwater world on the rock (Koh Tao).

Golden Divers was recommended to me when I arrived in Koh Tao and these guys delivered on every level. I completed my Open Water here and if I had more time on the island I would definitely have pursued more courses because the experience was amazing. Firstly, the location is perfect as it is conveniently close to the pier which... More

We were in a group of three and they made us feel very at ease and we had two instructors two help us out. It's a good price - the second dive is a lot better than the first so definitely do that. Would do more if we had a bigger budget

I never had any experience diving but have a lot of friends who love it so it was on my list to do coming to Koh Tao. While looking at various dive shops I met Arno at Golden Divers and really like the atmosphere of their shop, small groups (max 4 people) and the "family style" vibe they have. Even... More

Diving is pretty much one of the best activities which you can do in Koh Tao- especially in Golden Divers! At first I wasn't quite sure about making a diving course, because I was a bit afraid of it. However after a conversion with the diving master Neil, I felt very relieved and was motivated to do it. I have... More

I arrived at Koh Tao and didn't have any plans to start diving. But when I talked to dive master Neil I could see the passion for diving in his eyes. So I signed up for my Open Water and my first day on that course I decided to keep going :) after two and a half weeks of diving... More

Diving is something I wanted to tick off my bucket list for a long time, but was nervous to try it at first as I'm sure everyone is. All the team at golden divers were friendly and helpful with anything we were either worried or curious about. A massive thank you in particular to Martin, our instructor, who was fantastic... More

I went to do my Open Water Diver at Golden Divers and i really enjoyed everything about it. Our instructor Martin was very patient, relaxed and made us feel very safe. The atmosphere was chilled and prices reasonable. I would definetely recommend it to everyone who would like to try diving and also to experienced divers. Great experience!

Doubting to get my PADI Open Water course for many years, glad that I did it at Golden Divers: professional, good diving spots, small groups, good vibe in the shop, no hassle with books but videos in your own language, and a nice lunch :) Don't get tricked at other shops with cheaper prices, this is PADI and you better...

I hadn't dived for 3 years and the conditions I thought were less than favorable but Steve Minks of Golden Divers took me under his wing and sailed me through my Advanced course. Very safe and very comfortable, I would highly recommend this company and instructor Steve Minks
