Friendly and professional service once again from Chantal and all the staff. A special word of thanks to Marcelo, the instructor during my Rescue Diver Course. It was hard work but a lot of fun. Marcelo patiently guided me through the course and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I can recommend Phuket Scuba Club to anyone that want to dive or... More

The club is located in a kiosk right on Karon Beach at the south end. It is run by a very nice woman named Chantel and the instructor, Marcelo, is so skilled as both a diver and a teacher. I earned my open water certification and it was the very first time I attempted scuba diving, so the results were... More

My boyfriend and I took the Discover Scuba Diving course with Phuket Scuba Club this weekend, and it was amazing! I was very nervous at first but our instructor, Marcelo, was so patient and helpful and made me feel completely comfortable. During the dive my boyfriend experienced some discomfort in his ears, and Marcelo helped him back to the surface... More

Hiya! Im from Singapore and I took my Open Water here for 4 days with Chantal and Marcelo and I never regretted it once!

When I arrived I planned to do only the open water course. After completion, however, I decided to do the advanced one as well because I just loved the athmospere, the training opportunities and the very kind people I met there. The chosen dive spots for training were just amazing. I can say, I definitely learned a lot and enjoyed... More

My first experience of breathing underwater was made a very special and memorable one by the Phuket Scuba Club. I honestly, truly and highly recommend them if you're a newbie to the waves. My dive instructor, Marcelo was the most patient and informative person and should be booked in advance. Cheers!
