Phoenix is an award winning 5 star dive school that offers both SSI & PADI courses from beginner to instructor. We are located in the heart of Koh Tao’s main backpacker beach, Sairee. This gives us one of the best locations on the entire island and we are lucky enough to have a beachfront dive school, two big dive boats, and a resort with its own dive pool.

We have been certifying divers since 2003 making us one of the first dive schools on sunny Koh Tao. Our team of instructors headed by the most experienced SSI instructor in the world and by one of the most prestigious instructor trainers ensures you will always have a fun and safe experience.

Our small group sizes, ability to teach in a variety of languages and well maintained equipment are just a few of the many reasons why we are more than just a dive school. Come and join the Phoenix family!

The price includes lodging at the hotel next door, they pick you up from the ferry, and assign you an instructor that stays with you throughout the course. Everything... More

My friend and I did our open water here and we couldn't be happier about choosing Phoenix Divers! Our instructor was Alex and he was incredible! Extremely knowledgable and makes you feel very safe throughout the course. I will definitely be back in the future, I miss it already!
