Thoroughly enjoyed my 2 dives at Sail Rock with Discovery divers and only wish i had the time to do more with them. Looked after well from start to finish. Would seem to have been the best equipped, most comfortable vessel at the site that day. Sail rock definitely a site worth diving. Viz wasnt amazing on the day and didnt get to see the whale sharks that apparantly visit on occasion. But relished seeing both Groupers and Barracudas as big as ive seen anywhere as well as plenty else to look at.

Samui Discovery Divers, certified me with Open Water, Advanced Diver and Enriched Air Diver. For my first Open Water my instructor Mei Yang was very attentive to the fact that I was not a strong swimmer and over the course I not only received my Open Water but also gained more confidence to swim further both with and without my BCD. Her in-depth knowledge of both PADI and long experience of teaching not only guided me through my Open Water certification but also taught my more aspects on respecting the ocean and the marine environment. Samui Discovery Divers impressive manner of service and care taken during my first course lead me within two months too further my studies into Advanced Diver & Enriched Air Diver. Eric Vinik instructed me and my buddy for our Advanced Diver & Enriched Air. He gave us ample time to study our E Learning prior to the course and was on hand to answer any questions before we arrived at the dive sites. With the Deep Dive & Enriched Air more focus was placed on the safety and gassing out so that we understood that the pre checks of both equipment and dive site where essential. Eric has dived and instructed for many decades and all around the world so it was nice also to hear his stories that gave us a boarder view of the joy of being a PADI Diver.

A bit of an unusual review, as we didn't get to dive with Discovery Dive Center. We were scheduled to be in Koh Samui in early October, but with the pandemic we were unable to travel. When my flights were cancelled I contacted Eric at Discovery Dive Center via email and explained the situation. Without hesitation he said he would refund my full deposit directly to my bank account. It showed up the next day. When we can travel again I will rebook with Discovery Dive Center without hesitation. There commitment to customer service when they are not making any money assures me that when we are diving with them they will be great.

Very responsive, it took me a few minutes to book and got confirmed for the trip. Thai Instructor (K.Man) is very nice and professional. Speedboat is spacious and diving equipment are in good condition. The weather was so good and the water was so clear at sail rock. There are plenty of fishes and lively sea anemone. We really enjoy it and will definitely visit again.

Completed my Advanced Open Water course with this great team. The whole experience was great. Friendly, relaxed and professional. The equipment and instructor was top notch. Thoroughly enjoyed being back in the water. Sail Rock was magnificent with an abundance of fish and super visibility! I’ll be back for more. Thanks Richie and the team!
