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.

I completed my Rescue Diver and Emergency First Responder with Discovery and the training was excellent!

My instructor Filip M. provided personal 1-on-1 instruction for the entire course. He reviewed the eLearning every morning to ensure that I fully understood the theory, then we did dry rehearsals at the shop and on the boat before jumping into the water to practice what I learned.

Filip identified parts that I needed to work on and recreated multiple scenarios to ensure I was proficient. By making me practice over and over again, Filip ensured that the skills I learned would save my life or the life of another one day. The other instructors who role played at “panicked” or “unresponsive” divers played their roles well. They made the scenarios realistic. Realistic training = realistic results when an emergency happens.

The boat, equipment, lunch and communication were all TOP NOTCH. Thank you Discovery, I can’t wait to come back!

Very professional Dive Centre and really enjoyed the experience.
While in Samui, we tried a few different dive shops and this was by far the best experience we had.
Highly recommend and encourage anyone coming to Samui to dive with Discovery Divers.

The boat was new, clean and well manned.
The crew was knowledgeable and helpful.
The overall experience was great.

Huge shoutout to O.T. (Otillio) our DiveMaster as well. You can tell he loves what he does and that really made a big difference for the whole day.

Would come back and would recommend to others!
10/10

The diving was really well organised and our dive master was patient and kind with my nervous 11 year old son. The equipment was of a high standard as was the boat and lunch provided.

We booked before we arrived in Samui and it was super easy with great communication. As we, 3 of our party did the Scuba Diver PADI, we were went a log in to do the required learning remotely which worked well. O w of us already had Open Water but needed a refresher which was all accommodated with ease by Discovery.

I would definitely recommend using Discovery - it truly was a faultless experience.

We dived as a group of 4 so I felt well looked after. Visibility was ok on the day we went but I’ve heard it’s been better at other times but still plenty of life to see and a nice chimney to swim through. I really liked that food & drinks were included (with dietary requirements taken care of) so didn’t need to pack this. Be prepared for somewhat bumpy boat journey on the way back though.

Picked up from hotel 7.45 as instructed. Had pre dive/brief in dive shop by the speed boat. Got on boat (all equipment supplied and waiting for me on boat). Nice comfortable boat journey to sail rock. Carried out 2 dives and returned back. > you need to experience it yourself to feel how good it was. Everybody on boat very happy diving and excellent help from instructors on board. 5 star service.

I originally came here for a discovery dive last year. After I was certified, I found myself in Koh samui and it was a no-brainer to go back here. The instructors and guides are very knowledgeable, experienced, and fun! The boat crew are super helpful. Lunch was delicious. And also they have a speedboat, which allows you to get where you're going faster! Great place. You won't be disappointed.

Having dived with other outfits and being able to compare; I found Discovery to be highly professional- organized, friendly, communicative and looking out for the customers needs
