As an experienced diver I came to Thialand with my family on vacation from Canada. My wife and two children (13 & 15 years old), had expressed interest in getting their diving certification, but there never seemed to be time to do it at home. I reached out by email to Ok Club Dive center and was so happy that I did. Andre called me that day in Koh Lanta and came over and spoke to my family to see if he could help us out. He was very accommodating with our schedule, as we had other travel plans, and he was very thorough in his teaching and I was also very impressed at his concern to keep safety the number one priority. He even let me join in to dive with my family for the entirety of the course so that I could enjoy watching them learn, as well as capture photos and videos. After the course he sent me hundreds of photos that he had taken of all of us during the course as well. He related very well to the kids and kept everything very positive throughout never being too critical. The kids were genuinely sad to say goodbye to their instructor, Andre who treated us like family. I can't thank Andre enough for the experience we will never forget and would reccomend this Dive Club to anyone. Go with them and you will be happy you did. Ryan.

While visiting Thailand my children and I decided to complete our open water certification with Andre and Saara. I would highly recommend Andre whose calm, friendly and positive manner allowed for mistakes, viewing them as a learning opportunity and instilled confidence. Andre took the course material seriously, but was able to relate to my children (aged 13 and 15) so that they retained all the information. The dive sites were filled with an extraordinary mix of sealife and the Andre took the time to point out each animal and then sent us tons if pictures from our dives. If you are looking for the perfect dive shop - look no further!

Prior to diving with OK club, I was a certified tec sidemount diver, and I have been diving in Koh Haa before. However, after taking my cavern and introduction to cave courses and some fun dives with Andre, I realized that my prior experience was extremely limited, and I have not seen the best of Koh Haa before this. Andre was very generous to help me develop and improve additional sidemount skills that go beyond the course that I was enrolled for. By the time I got my certifications, I am a much stronger diver and am much more confident when go tec diving elsewhere.

Beyond being a great instructor, Andre is also an extremely skilled diver. We were diving in 30 cm visibility in Sra Kaeo cave, but I was extremely comfortable and felt perfectly safe. While on our fun dive, I witnessed first hand Andre taking control of the dangerous situation to help another group of divers, not diving with OK Club, that were in serious trouble.

At the end of the day, you get what you pay for - I paid more for a better and safer instructor/guide, and I came out a much better and responsible diver. Thank you, Andre and the OK Club team!

It was my first dive in 2018, and this team, especially instructor Andre, forever in my heart❤️ It was unforgettable experience for me, firstly I was a bit scared, but guys were very helpful and fun, so I got many positive emotions and felt so influenced after dive. Now I am Advanced OWD and it’s just because of Andre and OK dive club team.
Thank you very much, guys!
I hope one day I come back!

I`m not a diver and therefore this rating is NOT for diving experience.
I accompanied my husband and paid for snorkeling. As we also took our baby with us (staff was informed, heads up given and confirmation received) there was no possibility for me to snorkel while he was diving. But also there was no time given for snorkeling between dives. As I hurt my leg while boarding boat I wasn't upset about that because weather was great, everyone was super friendly and my husband was satisfied with his dives. Till I looked up receipt after we got back home - snorkeling was included. And we paid after. Disappointing.

Hello ne_lii_mee, We are very sorry and confused to read about your review. Before you booked the trip, we were very clear and informed your husband about the price: the same amount we charge for a passenger than for a snorkeler on board. You confirmed that was OK. Your husband informed us, that you would just come on board as a passenger, come with him while he is diving. And yet, we did not charge anything for the baby. We have very limited space on board, we charge also for passengers. Additionally, we discussed about including your baby on board that day, that the Diving speed boat is not a place for such a little one. As you said the whole staff was friendly during this day and considered you and your little one in all ways possible. If you really wanted to, the boat was stopped between the dives and stayed close to the reefs, which would have given you time for snorkeling... Very disappointing indeed, that after all of our extra effort to make your whole family comfortable and safe on board, and being very clear about the prices and schedule of the day before the departure, you still aren't happy. Best Regards, OK Club Team

I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart, for the incredible experiences, that I had, while diving with you. Both, on the ground and under the water, the level of the service you provide is excellent. The instructors and the dive masters are helpful and willing to answer all of the questions (even when the questions are repetitive and sometimes not very bright).

The patience, kindness and general feeling of caring is ever-present in OK Club.

Also, the boat is small and super fast, which means, that most probably, you will be the first one entering the water. Way before the big boats, filled with tens of people will arrive and bomb the diving site with humans :) Plus (the other thing to consider), there will be 10 people jumping from this boat and not 50...

Being on the speed boat also means, that you will be back on the land and transferred to your hotel at roughly 1-2pm (depends on the dive site and the weather), having the rest of the day for you to enjoy.

The staff on the boat is helping you on every step and the captain is the master driver (this boat races like a formula one car).

Note: I would like to comment on Nicolas R review from January 2020, which was in French, but All Mighty Google kindly translated it for me. I was diving with OK Club on the very day Nicolas. We were waiting for you around 20 minutes in total, with repetitive phone calls to your number being made and two drivers looking for you in between the hotel and the diving center. I think you just overslept or chickened out, and were trying to blame the others for it - a very common thing to do nowadays, as we are living in “The Age of Excuse”. Hope your life will get better one day.

As an OWSInstructor myself teaching in the Caribbean, when on vacation all over the world I'm looking for dive centers to partner up with for future ventures. Looking for the best who have something more to offer. When in Krabi Lanta. This is the the center you want to dive with. SUPA genuine owner Andre, has plenty teaching qualifications to take you to the next level, the fastest dive boat in Lanta means more dives and less divers on site. I will definitely be back with family, friends, & students. The pictures are thanks to MS.Photography_lovetheocean on Instagram. Mike you are a legend
