Fun, professional -- a wonderful introduction to diving
Nov 2018 • Friends
For our half-day introduction to diving, my friend and I were lucky to have Guston as our guide. A great combination of professional and fun, he also has the superpower to communicate what we needed to do and why in a way that was easily digested and remembered. Not to say we were his best students, but thanks to his instruction and encouragement, we were able to have an amazing time exploring the beautiful coral areas teeming with fish. The whole team was extremely knowledgable and friendly, from the minute we arrived at the shop to get sized up for our gear to the boat crew, to the team members supporting us when we returned, exhausted but delighted after our two dives. I would highly recommend See Bees and Paradise Diving to experience beautiful experience of diving with professional instruction from a first-rate team. Definitely hope to be back for another unforgettable day!

Perfect First Time!
Oct 2018 • Family
My daughter, 10yrs, had never been diving, snorkelling and had only swum in the sea once in her life. Tiin took her on 2 intro dives for approx 40 minutes and taught her everything she needed to know to feel confident enough to do so. Tiin was calm, confident and caring - everything that would instil confidence in a parent and diver, and my daughter felt 100% secure with her. I highly recommend diving with Tiin and her team - especially if your child is going to dive (she was amazing with the children!). My daughter can't wait for our next trip to Nai Yang and to go diving again. Thank you Tiin and team - this was a perfect first-time experience!!!

Great service
Nov 2017 • Family
My daughter and her friend went diving with Seabees Naiyang yesterday. The service from the start of the booking all the through to the end was excellent. Both my daughter and her friend are teenagers and they felt safe at all times with the dive masters and crew. Thank you very much for another great dive with you. Looking forward to see you soon.

GREAT EXPERIENCE!!
Feb 2017 • Friends
Myself and 5 friends did the half day tour with Michael and Tiin. We were staying at Nai Thon beach so this was the closest option and saved us driving all the way to the south of the island where the other dive centres are located. Tiin was fantastic. Very patient and clear under water. There was plenty of help on the boat for the equipment. And their set up on land was also really good. Highly recommend them and we'll be back!

Jan 2017 • Family
Revisited Paradise Diving in January 2017 and they just keep getting better. This time we had a new diver requiring certification and the owners of Paradise diving spent an amazing amount of time and effort to give them a first class certification course while making them extremely comfortable with all aspects of diving. Their careful attention to detail and focus on safety makes their service invaluable.

The owners have developed half day trips on their own boat to insure it meets the highest standards for safety and reliability. The trips are very reasonably priced and do not waste an entire day like the larger dive boats do. No waiting at the port, no waiting for groups slow to get in and slower to get out, just a quick high speed run to some of the best dive sites leaving right from Nai Yang beach.

Personally, having been diving in Phuket for over 15 years, I strongly recommend Paradise Diving as the go to diving shop in Phuket. They offer as much or as little assistance as you want, at a price and service level that is pretty much unmatched.

Lovely people, amazing diving!
Nov 2015 • Couples
This review is very over due but has to be written to express how much we enjoyed our diving trips with Paradise diving back in November. The team at Nai Yang beach, based in Indigo Pearl were so helpful and charming, and despite myself having not dived for a few years completely put me at ease.
After a session in the pool with Michael we went on a day trip to the Phi Phi islands. The diving was awesome and we loved very minute. We then did a more local half day dive which was also lots of fun. I would definitely recommend using this group and we hope to see Tiin and Michael again soon! Clare & Tom. x

Another great holiday in Paradise
Jan 2016 • Solo
I booked diving and my dive master course with Paradise Diving. Michael is the greatest teacher I ever had in my diving career!!!
I also really can recommend their halfday diving trips especially to Koh Waeo Island where we had turtles, a whaleshark, big barracudas.. Just go and enjoy your next holidays at Michael's and Tiin's place.

Such a good time!
Dec 2015
I stayed in Phuket for a few weeks in January and did a lot of trips with these guys. It was absolutely beautiful. The trips ranged from a non- diving excursion to the famous "James Bond Island" to full- day diving trips. The service was perfect. From the first information about the trips given to me by the owners Micha and Tiin to the boat and diving crew, everyone was caring and dedicated.
The landscapes around James Bond Island are stunning. Perfect trip to relax and do some sightseeing. We explored some caves and had lunch at a beautiful beach, where we were completely on our own.
The half day trip to the small island Koh Waeo was really nice as well. A lot of fish and easy conditions. My favorites : A turtle and an octopus!
But the highlight definitely was the full day diving trip to the Phi Phi Islands. Beautiful area including the famous beach from the movie "The Beach". Perfect diving spots as well with a huge variety of sealife ranging from beautiful nudibranches to sharks.
All in all I can totally recommend this dive center. Everything seemed to be very safe and everyone worked to make the trips great, regardless how experienced the divers were. I´d love to go there again some day!
