Owner description: Blue Planet Divers offers SCUBA Diving (Courses and Guided Dives), Technical Diving, snorkeling and is the only center offering Freediving courses on the beautiful island of Koh Lanta. We are able to provide two different daily diving locations with our two boats. Our large and spacious big boat is perfect to spend a nice chill out day to meet new friends or stay in family and also to get full diving lessons. We are the only one which offer three dives by speedboat to the farther and best sites around Koh Lanta. Our highly experienced and friendly team members are multi-lingual speaking, French, English, Swedish, German and Dutch. Blue Planet Divers's best value is small ratio teaching because our first concern is high standards learning.

Blue Planet are prompt and professional! Amazing snorkelling/diving sites and great atmosphere on the boat with fresh fruits and tasty food on board. Lovely experience!

I am a divemaster myself and have experienced various dive centres around the world (and particularly in Thailand) in my life. This one in Koh Lanta proved to be very safe, attentive and pleasant. The first contact by mail was very friendly and answered all questions and when met in person I found the staff helpful and kind.
The boat was well-equipped and the meals and snacks served were plentiful and have satisfied all customers aboard (which is often not the case on Thai dive boats).
The groups of dicers were kept small (4 divers and one guide) and were well-matched in their levels/experience. Safety was cared for but the fun factor was never neglected.

My friends and I went to Blue Planet for a couple days of dives. I was talked in to getting my Advanced OW(which I am very happy about). My first impression of the dive center was quite organized and professional, they also have great reviews which is why I went with them. We were told that we would be picked up at 6:20 am on both days, and we were picked up quite late on both days. All of which was fine once we got to the boat. The boat was nice (tho really crowded the second day)and the local boat captains were awesome. My instructor, Kat, was very knowledgeable and professional, I was so happy to have her as my instructor and dive buddy. I will definitely be back to dive with these guys! I HIGHLY recommend them, especially Kat if you want to get a certification.

Dear Emily,

Thank you for your review! It's always a pleasure to receive good review from guest and we are very sorry that this little issue made us a 4 stars review only.

Just to clarify the situation every morning our transfer service has a very tight schedule between all the location starting from the south of the island up to north where is located our pier. Unfortunately it happens often that people picked up first are very late at taxi their appointment and make all the following pick ups late. We're really trying to tell all our customers to be on time but a few people are not always intend to follow our pick rules rules. We're always looking after our drivers and make sure they are on time but again not everyone has a watch on his wrist.

Thanks again Emily and really hope next time we will change your mind about our pick up service. We would even offer you a private transfer if necessary.

Very professional and well run dive shop. We had a disappointing experience with the accommodation we had booked and the staff at the shop went out of their way to make alternate arrangements for us which we really appreciated. We did 2 days of diving with them. One set of 2 dives which were near phi phi and another day of 3 dives at the southern dive location. All the diving was good, the southern dives were particularly pretty and clear and we saw 2 mantas. There was a whale shark around briefly on one of the dives too but we managed to miss it somehow. The dive masters were all great, we had Natacha and Kevin who were both fun and very friendly with a focus on safety. Would definitely dive with Blue Planet again if in Koh Lanta.

My wife (PADI open water, 6 dives) and I (PADI open water, 10 dives) traveled to Ko Lanta in January of 2017, and wanted to bring in the new year by getting some diving in. Booking over the phone was a breeze (we did not try online). Ko Lanta is in close proximity to some incredible dive sites, and Rebecca talked us through what it would take to take in a couple different dive sites. While we were tempted by Hin Daeng and Hin Muang, we ultimately opted for a refresher course and a couple dives at Koh Haa island to save some money.

While our driver was 30 minutes late picking us up from our Resort in South Lanta (pick up is included), it did not take away from the amazing experience with Blue Planet Divers. After being dropped off at the Lanta pier, we met our Dive Master for the day (Kevin) and his apprentice (Derek) who were going to look after us for the day. Kevin and Derek were a great mix of friendly, fun, and detail oriented. Kevin did a great job in bringing two divers who hadn't dived since May of 2014 back up to speed (via a quiz, and review), so that we felt comfortable being back in the water and with the game plan for the day.

During our dives, Kevin walked us through all the required skills to complete the refresher, then got on with our dives as quickly as possible without compromising our understanding of diver safety. Kev knew the dive sites inside and out, with a complete knowledge of it's resident fish and crustaceans. We saw many fish (nudibranches, stonefish, scorpionfish, seahorses, a lobster, porcelain crab, porcupine fish) over the course of two dives, along with vibrant coral life.

Blue Planet offered breakfast (scrambled eggs, toast, and juice), snacks (deep fried spring rolls), and lunch (an array of traditional Thai food) in the cost of admission, which was greatly appreciated. After our dives, Kevin went over our dive logs as we ate lunch (make sure that he stamps your log with his rockin' stamp) and talked about life on Ko Lanta. All-in-all, everything went so smoothly and we enjoyed a wonderful day. Keep up the great work Blue Planet!

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for your high rated review! We're always charmed by reading reviews like your.

We all know pick up service is not always easy to keep on timing when other guests forgot to put their alarm clock or leave their watches at home. It's understandable as we all know that most of travelers come to relax and lost their mind on time. We are sorry that happen to you and we hope and will try to organize better this service.

Besides, we are very glad that all other services have been rated 5 stars and like you said we will keep it up and even try to make it better.

Thanks again and hope we will meet you in a near future for more fun diving!
