I just did one Thresher Shark Dive with this company but found them to be extremely professional and friendly. I may have found cheaper elsewhere but would rather pay a little extra to know all the kit is working properly and to dive with professional people. I saw 4 sharks and some rays on my dive which was amazing.

The boat mens were really nice and helpful too. However, most of the non-local staff should learn how... More

At other dive sites, mostly macro stuff but managed to see 2 white tip sharks. Also saw mandarin fish mating during a night dive. Good:... More

The best part of Thresher Divers is once you hit the boat. The instructors we had were excellent. First day was Marvin and he was fun and informative. The rest of the time we had Angus, who helped our son get advanced certified. He was PERFECT with our 12 yr old boy. Angus made it fun while building his confidence... More
