Owner description: Seafari Dive Center was the first scuba diving operation to open in Pattaya and one of the first in Thailand. Founded by Bill Burbridge back in 1970, it's still actively serving scuba divers from all over the world. If experience is "the best teacher", we've got more than 35 years of it and that certainly says something! Why not come and join us for a great days diving or try one of our introductory courses which run all the way through to instructor levels? Look forward to seeing you.

The people were unprofessional and did not care about you. They would only talk to us when we were able to go into the water and didn't talk with us beside that. The boat had day divers, advanced divers, and snorkel's which I found really unprofessional especially because the day divers and snorkel's could only do one dive and had to sit on the boat the rest of the day.
There are other dive companies in the area that dive at the same location and are better than these people.

I went for a wreck dive at the HMS Hardeep. It was my first wreck dive and it didn't disappoint. The visibility wasn't great, but it was still amazing.

Guys at the Seafari Dive Center were great. Everything was handled professionally from start to finish. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. The master instructor, Ann, was great also. She always focused on safety was very efficient in and out of the water.

If you are in Pattaya and can't decide from the many dive shops, give these guys a try. They won't disappoint. I'll be diving with them again next trip to Pattaya!

Well organised, friendly staff. Two snorkelers and one passenger- we all had an amazing time. Two opportunities to snorkel, sadly the second one was cut short as there were reportedly many jellyfish in the water. Can't complain though, as staff were looking after the safety of the customers. My husband had reported that he had cardiac bypass surgery a couple of years ago - there was a dive instructor with him the whole time! Delicious, simple Thai lunch (traveller tip - if you tend to get peckish, carry your own snacks - even though there were some available on the boat). Also, know that cold drinks are available on payment - made to the captain, lots of chilled water available at no extra payment though.

It was a great experience- even the waiting for the scuba-divers as they geared up and made their dives - had expected there to be a much longer wait for the snorkelers but the whole experience was quite nice. A definite must-do for families, much better experience than the whole Koh Larn day trip. Next trip it's going to be scuba diving for my teenager and snorkelling for the rest, even the non-snorkeler in our group.
