Hi Tony Thanks for this amazing review! We believe the dive sites around Koh Samui are perfect for a first time diver, due to the warm water, mild to zero currents and typically excellent visibility paired with lots of marine life. Hopefully see you in the future for your open water course!

Hi Julie Thanks for taking the time to write this review. For many people taking a private charter is the best and most comfortable way to see our excellent dive sites. We are glad you and your friends had a good day with us!
