          Unfortunately believed in the positive reviews
          Absolutely unprofessional in many respects. The safety/health of the divers is not taken care of, instead common safety regulations are violated. The company is also unable to deal with bad reviews and customers are denounced.

          Great adventure!
          It is a great diving experience, saw a lot of tropical creatures including a manta. Other things such as anemones are also beautiful! My instructor, Harish, is very responsible, and he kept me safe while diving!

          great experience!
          Me and my partner each did 9 dives with Phoenix Divers. This diving school is really amazing! We had 9 great dives. Our instructors were Remi and Olga and we felt extremely comfortable with them. You could take the time to observe the animals without feeling stressed. Really a big compliment to the two of them, great job! We also felt really comfortable on the boat and there was always delicious food, snacks and drinks. Next time we're in Koh Lanta we'll definitely be with them

          Excellent company. Highly recommend for their attentive care to our children! So professional and fabulous.
          We went driving with phoenix today. It was amazing!!! Our children are 10 and 13 and they loved it. Mainly because the diving owner and instructors were the most professional and nicest people. Cant recommend them enough. Our instructor was Hugo, we felt so so safe and had so much fun. Our children loved it. We dove to 10 meters which was impressive! Thank you for such a great day and memories to cherish. Topped off by seeing a shark!!! Fabulous. Xxxxxx

          A great experience about a first step into diving
          Everything was really awesome to me, from the welcoming to the advanced open water going through the open water. I really enjoyed the dives of my open water with Kot wich where both very safe and satisfying, Kot is especially good at explaining and making you feel confortable too. I then dove with Laura to end my open water and it was really cool too ^^ During open water we saw : Black tip sharks, shrimps, Lobsters, Grouper ( of all sorts and size ), moray eels, Lion fish, parrot fish, angel fish, Trigger fish. And for my Advanced I dove with Mark and Alice who are both excellent teachers ! We had the pleasure to see : 2 léopard shark, sea snakes, a blue spotted stingray, clown fish, some sea horses... I would definitely recommend, and personally had an amazing, proper introduction about the diving world and all the best things that comes with it. Thanks again and see you soon Phoenix !

          Amazing first diving experience!
          We had an excellent time with our dive instructor Joel, who made us feel very safe for our first diving experience. After a theoretical instruction, he showed us the basic skills at 2-3 meters below the surface before we went for our first dive of roughly 45 min. Afterwards we did a second dive at a different location before lunch was provided. We had so much fun that we opted to do a third dive together with Joel. Not only Joel, but the whole team was amazing and ensured that everyone at board had a great experience. If you’re interested in trying out Scuba Diving, we highly recommend going to Phoenix!

          My friend and I dived for the first time with phœnix diver and it was incredible! Gregory was our instructor for the day. He was patient, educational and made us feel confident! I hope everyone has their first experience with an instructor like him! The whole team was so friendly. Thank you for this first dive 🙏

          Great first diving experience
          We went to Phoenix to try first diving experience in the sea and even without diving license is possible to dive to 12 meters with instructor. Our instructor Kot was very helpful, explained everything and we felt really safe out there. He only looked after two of us and helped us when we needed. Despite our sea sickness a little bit (they even provide us with pill for it) we really enjoyed and I am thinking about doing diving license in my country!

          We Did our open water certification with Phoinex. Everything organised very well. Pick up and drop off at your hotel if you need it. Great dive sites. And Harris was an awesome instructor. Would definitely recommend Phoinex Dive Koh Lanta!

          Wow what a diving experience! 🐠🪸🪼❤️🤩
          A friend had recommended the scuba discovery for beginners at phoenix divers and we also booked that for the next day on our arrival to Koh Lanta. (Office is very close to the pier.) The diving day was fantastic! The crew was Helpful and friendly, food and drinks provided and our instructor, Vincent, was truly amazing. He took great care of us being professional, enthusiastic and motivating. We have no prior knowledge of diving and he started from the basics calmly and carefully and we progressed step by step. First snorkeling with the diving gear on, then doing some skills underwater and when we felt confident he took us down to 12 meters and we had 2 incredible 45 minute dives seeing beautiful marine life 🤩 he even took some pictures of us, amazing memories from below the surface! Can’t recommend the scuba discovery enough! Now I want to do my own license ( unfortunately had to move forward from Koh Lanta, but if I would have done my license with phoenix, I could have included the discover dives to the certificate ). Thank you so much and keep up the good vibes! 💪😁

          Amazing experience
          Amazing experience! It was first time scuba diving, and I was quite nervous when we first got in the water, but Greg (my mentor) was amazing, and he helped me through out and kept me at ease. After the first 5 minutes of getting used to it, I loved it. Best experience of my holiday. If you're intrigued by the ocean, and enjoy snorkeling, this is a must. Enjoyed it so much I done a third dive!

          First diving experience
          The DSD (Discover Scuba Diving) was amaaazing!! Alice was such a good instructor and I felt very safe with her under water! The whole crew on the boat was so nice, we got good food and the diving spots were super beautiful :)) I definitely don‘t regret my decision to do the third dive!! Great recommendation!

          We had a great day...
          My partner and I had a great day. Not only because we saw many Blacktip Reef Sharks at Koh Bida Nai but also because we saw quite many different fish on all three snorkelling grounds. They ensured that it was a good experience for both the divers and the snorklers. The crew and our boat master/snorkel guide Valeria did a good job and they were a good team. As a former diver, I preferred going snorkelling with a dive school that offers snorkelling than with one of the big boats. It might be a bit more expensive but it is definitely worth the experience.

          Beyond expectations!!!!
          We chose Phoenix Divers for our snorkeling trip because we wanted a professional experience outside the usual tourist routes, we had 3 different spots where we could admire a beautiful reef full of fish and blacktip sharks and we were also lucky enough to see a shark leopard. We were in a small group and our instructor Matthias was awesome as the whole crew, all young, enthusiastic and professional guys, we had a great day. Thank you so much 😊

        I booked the advanced course with phoenix divers. When choosing a dive shop I usually like to go in and get a vibe of the place and the staff before I book - which I did and had a great reception from them. I booked in my diving and chose out all my equipment in the shop. We then did day 1 of diving and it was fantastic. It is a bit confusing that you get dropped at Lanta divers rather than Phoenix after they pick you up in the morning, but I figured this was due to it being easy access for the boat. It was a really friendly and helpful group on the boat, they were really organised, sitting everyone down close to their kit and who they would be diving with, then the instructors came over immediately to introduce themselves and give some information about the dives. Breakfast was provided, drinks, snacks and fruit after each dive and lunch also. The staff and equipment was high quality and the diving at Koh Bida was fantastic. I had around 6 days in koh lanta and had specifically chose to do the course on these days due to being able to see koh bida and then koh haa (other dive shops I had spoke to did not have a schedule that fit in with mine). Then day 2 really spoilt the experience for me. Phoenix were fully booked and so myself and the others taking this course were sent with a Phoenix instructor on a Lanta divers boat, and sent back to koh bida. One of the dive sites we did was a wreck and exactly the same as the one the day before. The boat was no where near as nice, there was very little shade, the whole thing felt much more chaotic, breakfast wasn’t provided, it felt like we had been shoved on as an afterthought (which we had!) and the whole experience was much inferior, however I was mostly disappointed about paying 350 euro to repeat the same dives. If it wasn’t part of the course I would have said that I didn’t want to bother as I felt hugely let down. There also wasn’t the option to do a 3rd dive as this wasn’t something that Lanta divers offered, and actually 2 members of the group had paid for the 3rd dive.

        I explained back at the dive shop how disappointed I was and the owner did apologise and gave 1,000 bhat back, which was a nice gesture but obviously, at this point the damage was done and we couldn’t go back in time. He offered a ‘good price’ to dive in koh haa, but I had other things I wanted to do on the island and didn’t want to spend another day diving. It’s really confusing to me as there were people that they took on their boat who had not dived the day before (or actually, ever before?) so it would to me make more sense to send them to the same sites as yesterday rather than us; also had they have explained that going on this day I would have been on the same sites as yesterday - I would have been happy to dive on a different day.

        It is testament to Phoenix that their service is high quality, as I did notice that the other centre, in comparison, was not as good, however I do feel as though they let wanting to get the sale in the way of my experience.

        I would still recommend them, however be sure to double check which sites you will be going to , especially if you can see the group is being split.

        Great experience, great team!
        Family of 4 we dived 2 days in a row, one of us took his PADI Open Water with François who is an amazing divemaster and Mark is a very good diving guide. He even made some beautiful underwater pictures for us!
        On top of being very nice the whole team is highly skilled and very concerned with safety rules.
        The reservation process was perfectly handled by the lady at the reception who is very professional.
        The contact with WhatsApp is perfect for booking and morning pick up which is included.
        All diving equipment is very good and the speed boat well organized with a nice crew.
        No doubt Phœnix Divers is the best diving shop in Saladan/koh Lanta 😊

        I have had the chance to dive 10 days with Phoenix, and it is a MUST.

        All dive shops in the island have more or less the same rates so the difference lies really in the mindset of the crew, their organization, and the scrutiny they put to understand your needs and what you like to see underwater.

        First of all, we all want to dive safe, and safety is surely a top priority, briefs are excellent, take into consideration parameters of the day, the level of people that are diving and obviously the different sites. I want also to mention that the Thai crew in charge of navigation and what seems little things in the boat (but surely important when you talk about safety) are really into it with focus and smiles.

        Talking about personalization of the dives, I was diving with my sister, we have low air consumption, and they were also focused to make sure everyone can stay underwater, it was not rare to dive more than 50min, which is not all time the case.
        They are also attentive on your previous dives, and always keen to propose you to explore different routes in a same dive.

        Finally, and I really appreciate that point, all dives are different because the mindset is really to enjoy the wildlife, and surely the wildlife is incredible even if you have seen it all,

        90% of my dives were with Brent, and Brent is clearly an incredible guide above and below water, he is got a great sense of communication, great stories, and incredible eyes to spot wildlife. He is also a talented photographer, happy to share his videos and photographs for memories and ones that are not in the boat.

        I appreciate really how he is been committed to make the most of it, and if chance is a parameter, I believe also, like in any wildlife, that your instructor can make that chance happen.

        Here is what you can see mid January with those guys: whale shark, mantas, dolphins, small recif sharks, all kind of nudis, sea horse, turtles, colored fish, and nice stories on how they all live together, and surely incredible landscape when you finally come back to the surface.

        Real nature Observation in our world is a luxury, enjoy !

        Brent and Reggie were absolutely amazing…. Took us out to Hin Muang/ Hin Daeng/ and Koh Haa for some absolutely breathtaking dives… me and my dive buddy were fairly new advanced divers and they took their time to make us feel comfortable and safe. In the end, they led us right to the first whale shark we’ve ever seen. Would highly recommend these two and Phoenix Divers if you’re in Koh Lanta!

        If I could give them 6 stars, I would! Flick, who is the superstar manager of Phoenix, provides a spectacular experience where your enjoyment and safety are most important.

        Flick did everything with a smile on his face and had super knowledge of the different dive sites and fish we had seen. I was very impressed with the whole experience and will be booking with them again soon!

        I did my PADI open water with Phoenix and they were amazing! JJ tought us on the first day in the pool and Kot on the 2nd and 3rd day in the sea. They are both great teacher - and Kot made me feel incredibly safe and looked after out there on the open sea, I was nervous at start but he calmed my nerves with his professionalism, knowledge and humour. All the equipment was impeccabble, great boat with a small group and max 4 ppl per instructor, and they took us to all the best dive spots. Plus we had the option of doing an extra dive at a great price which I’m so glad we did as we saw 2 huge guitar sharks and 4 smaller ones swimming right next to us and at one point right below me only ab 2 meters away - an experience I’ll never forget!

        Had a blast diving with Phoenix Divers and especially Brent. Dived at Hin daeng/muang and koh Haa. Koh Haa is one of the best places to dive in Thailand and I got to see my first whaleshark there!

        After backpacking for 6 months in south east asia and 65+ different dive sites and dive guides we met Brent who is by far the most enthusiastic and genuine dive instructor we've had. A really fun guy to share your diving experience with and he got some crazy stories to share with you. An absolute character!
        But he is a freelancer so you have to specificly ask to dive with Brent as your dive guide and I really recommend that you do.
        Brent seems to have a good relationship with Phoenix so I guess this is the best place to go if you're looking for something extraordinary.

        We had amazing 5 days of diving with Phoenix Divers in Koh Lanta! Big thanks to Mark and the whole crew for a great experience, showing us as many different dive sites as possible, pointing out wildlife we’d never have seen on our own and taking such good care of us.
        Everything was well organized, their speed boats are great and well maintained, equipment was good and needed adjustments were always made asap. 😊
        Would definitely recommend diving with them, no matter if you’ve only got one day or a whole week on Koh Lanta.

        Went diving with Phoenix for two days, very nice team and organization!

        Got a private guide both days after I informed them of my air consumption, both guides were very accommodating and friendly! Nothing negative to say about the equipment, and maximum three divers per guide. Boat crew was very professional and we stopped to observe whales as they appeared around the boat during surface intervals.

        Aonna organized everything for me via WhatsApp, including transfers to other islands and social activities post-dive!
        Quick response times on WhatsApp and always a positive attitude. Overall one of the best diving experiences I've had since I started diving in 2010!

        Highly professional group of divers, I hadn't been diving in a long time and they took great care of me and had a fantastic dive. The sites are great and local knowledge really spot on. I also saw how they approach dive training, was so impressed with the quality of teaching. If you want to dive, I would highly recommend Pheonix.
