I went diving with Flip Flop Divers and had an amazing day diving at Ko Haa! My divemaster, Sebastian, was knowledgeable and friendly, and he frequently made sure that everyone was doing good during the dives as well as in between. Furthermore, he was great at pointing things out that would have missed my eyes otherwise. The whole staff seemed... More

Ady and his team were superb, friendly and professional. They made the experience very personal and you knew you could trust these guys to look after you. Sebastian our diving buddy was really friendly, patient and knowledgable and took time to explain things in detail. I did the snorkelling and my partner Steve did the scuba and after the first...

Today, me and a friend went for a Discover Scuba Dive and it was amazing! Our instructor was a very nice and relaxed man who was very clear in his instructions. He taught us so many things, explained everything very well and showed us many fish! And the diving site we went to (koh haa) was really beautiful! The whole... More

I've spent 8 weeks on Koh Lanta and as I am packing my bags the one thing I will miss is Flip Flop Divers. Ady and staff has become dear friends and family. They supply the highest rate of guides to divers and they also manage to staff the most profesional staff. Regardless of if you want to see Mantas... More

On our first day in Koh Lanta, we went to Flip Flop Divers and were welcomed with open arms by "the pirate", Ady. He took his time to tell us about "discover scuba diving" in detail, because it was the first time diving for one of us. After this we felt that we really could trust the instructor both in... More

After a bit of research we ended up with Flip Flop Divers. We didn't regret it a single moment and can highly recommend this dive base. Ady and his team are both: highly professional and responsible and at the same time really relaxed. THIS is the way you want to experience Koh Lanta's lovely underwater world. Thanks to the team...

My partner and I recently did 4 dives with FlipFlop Divers, and were beyond impressed. We are South African, and met the owner of the shop Ady, who is also South African. He has created a wonderfully welcoming shop with fantastic dive instructors. We instantly became part of the family, and spent almost every night of our week in Koh... More

Went for the diving, stayed for the people! Ady and his staff are the best we have ever dived with! More like a family than a shop, you feel like you're just part of a big group of enthusiasts, rather than instructors or dive guides. It's so easy to see why so many people keep coming back. No words for... More
