I did my SSI Advanced Adventurer course with Oceanic at the beginning of March. We talked to a few dive shops and settled on Oceanic on the basis of both a competitive price and how comfortable we felt with Joel and Rachel. My wife isn't a diver so I did the course on my own which makes it important to... More

I had a splendid first dive with their instructor Chris. These are the guys you should contact when you want to go diving - as both beginners and advanced divers! It's a trustworthy and highly professional company + they are a lot of fun! Thanks once again Rachel, Joel and Chris!

Had a great experience completing my open water dive course. The staff were helpful and friendly, and I now feel equipped with the skills I need to confidently dive again. As a local living in Phuket, I will definitely book my next dive tours with Oceanic and I would recommend them to divers of all abilities.

Oceanic is a very professional divecenter which my brother and me have been using now for many years. Good and fast communication with the main office and Rachel. Our well known instructor and dive master Chris Stout makes an excellent job! Very well done! Carl and Henrik

Did 2 dives with Oceanic during a recent stay in Phuket and am nothing but complimentary of Joel, Rachel and the team. First dive was a beach dive, great way to ease back in given it had a few months since my last dive, while the second was a great, day long adventure to Phi Phi islands. Oceanic were great.... More
