They gave me a BCG which started self-inflating when I was in 20m so I went straight up :(. I complained about the deflator malfunction prior to the dive but the dive master convinced me that everything was ok. I was in shock after the dive but still the dive master wanted to continue with 2nd and 3rd dive right... More

SurinBoy, Owner at Blue Guru Dive Centre, responded to this review

Lucia, you have never dived with Blue Guru. So you have either posted this review about the wrong dive centre or have maliciously posted this review for some unknown reason. I can definitely say that this review is fictitious for the following reasons: 1. We have searched our customer records for the past 8 years since our inception and have... More

From the beginning, I had excellent communication with this group. Chris was always emailing me back quickly and had an answer for every question. I modified their regular excursions and they were completely accommodating in every way. Our guide was "Cookie" (Mr. Cook!) for 4 days on the Surin islands. He and our local guide took us to the best... More

My family (wife and 2 kids) and I just finished doing a PADI open water course with Blue Guru followed by a Richelieu Rock/Surin Islands trip. The Blue Guru team were absolutely brilliant the whole time - friendly, relaxed and simultaneously totally professional. Communication before the trip was fast and efficient. The organisation of the transport, trips and accommodation was... More

Blue Guru diving experience was one of the best trips we have ever done. Not just for the diving but the entire experience. We booked our trip 8 months in advance and Chris with Blue Guru was great in setting up everything, explaining everything and planning. We had sailed for two days out of Phuket and had a great experience... More

I did my AOWD certification with Blue Guru in 2012, and decided to return here in February 2015 for some diving, snorkelling and completing my EFR certification. Both times I had a great time with Blue Guru. Chris handled all the communication, and although he wasn't on-site this time, he always communicated clearly and responds in a timely manner. I...

We have just left Koh Pra Thong island, and although pretty rustic, we had a very lovely time. The Blue Guru group, Nikki, Charrit, Alex, Jen, Helen and Christopher all worked to make diving a very good experience. Despite boat difficulties, they worked to make our dives during the visit possible. We were pleased with the staff's knowledge and friendliness.... More

I did a day trip called Andaman Offshore and Phra Thong Wreck. There were two dives - one on coral and the other on a wreck. The two dives plus equipment rental cost £117 (about $160, at current exchange rates). In my experience diving in the florida keys, the Red Sea, Malta, and Saint Lucia,this is markedly more expensive than... More

As you walk along the rickety wooden bridge to the Blue Guru office and equipment building, you are transported to an atmosphere of friendly, laid back informality which contrasts with the fact that the kit is all superb, up to date and very safe. What a great crew of people. Our particular dive masters and companions were Nikki and Charrit,... More
