    We stumbled upon Koh Lipe Diving School when I was looking to purchase a mask and snorkel. Eric happened to be at the desk and was very knowledgeable regarding the different mask types, material, and best fit for me. He also offered to help me prepare the mask so that it wouldn’t fog as easily. We decided to dive with Koh Lipe Diving School because from that initial interaction we could already tell that we would be receiving a superb experience with professionals. And we were definitely impressed! I signed up for the Advanced Open Water course with Eric and we would start the day with a 30 min whiteboard talk about what I was learning that day. Throughout my dives, Eric was very attentive and made sure to reinforce the things that I was learning. I could feel the noticeable improvement from all his teachings. It is also evident that he loves the marine life and we spotted an amazing breadth of fishes. We dived at different sites every time as well. Their shop is conveniently located on Walking Street and is a quick walk to Pattaya beach where we board the boat. The diving boat they use is also a beautiful, spacious, 3 story boat with an amazing sundeck. The Thai staff on board were super helpful and attentive as well, always watching to help people with their gear. We were also provided with a simple and delicious lunchbox between dives, and there were always two plates of fresh fruit as well as water, coffee, and tea. Overall it was such a wonderful experience and we are so happy we chose to dive with Koh Lope Diving School. Best diving shop on the island!

    Diving very professional I dived 2 times and I’ve done adventure dive with Eric. He was very nice and very professional. The dive’s sites were amazing an aquarium with jellyfish, sea horses and wonderful corals. Koh lipe is one of the best place to dive in Thailand.

    I completed the SSI "Advanced Adventurer" (same as PADI Advanced Open Water) with Koh Lipe Diving in December 2019. I contacted a variety of companies and am very happy I chose Koh Lipe Diving. They are a well established professional outfit. David responded to my initial email with all info I needed within 45 minutes! (If you're thinking about the advanced, do it! I found it easier than the open water) If you're a beginner get your PADI/SSI, you will thank yourself forever! They offer try dives too. You also get dive insurance. * They are one of only 2 operators with a big boat = reliability, access to more sites & comfort! * The rental equipment was in good condition and they just opened a fantastic diving equipment shop at the beach end of "Walking Street". * Fresh fruit, tea, coffee and water is available on the boat throughout the day, and a decent thai dish with rice is served at lunch. They can adjust for dietary requirements too. * If you do the Advanced course, you get 6 dives (many only offer 5 for the same price) * If you do the Advanced course, you can do a NIGHT DIVE. Koh Lipe Diving is the only operator who offers night dives. * All staff I encountered were professional, experienced, good humoured and patient... Richard Wisdom is an excellent instructor... very knowledgeable, patient, calm and friendly which makes for great diving. Richard answered all of my questions (from the sensible to the ridiculous) with a smile. He was also happy to spend time discussing dive theory in more detail. Definitely dive with these guys.

    I had a great time diving with KLD. Eric’s team is professionnal and very friendly. I appreciated the fact that safety is their priority and that they checked the current before sending their customers underwater. Their boat is spacious and comfortable and you can relax and enjoy tea, coffee and fruits between two dives. Tiago, my instructor for the advanced advanturer course was very knowledgeable, patient and fun. He managed to walk me through underwater navigation (which isn’t really my strong suit :D). I also enjoyed the fun dives with Ludo. I would have loved staying a few more days on the island and will definitely dive with KLD if I ever go back to Koh Lipe. I highly recommend KLD if you are visiting Koh Lipe. You will not be disappointed.

    I was in walking street and passed Koh Lipe diving. I hadn’t been diving for a few years and was a little unsure as I had had a bad ankle break a few years earlier and was unsure about getting back into the boat with all my gear. I needn’t have worried. The guys at Koh Lipe Diving were great. Firstly going through some routines to get me back in the swing of things and also by having a crew member on standby to help me with my gear when exiting the water. Everyone was professional and managed to make the whole experience fun. I highly recommend this diving school and next time I’m back in Koh Lipe I will be diving with them again. Thanks for a great time guys.

    When I arrived at the Koh Lipe Diving centre I received a friendly greeting from the team, I was immediately put at ease and felt like I was in the hands of professionals. Having previously completed my SSI Open Water certification and the Advanced Adventurer course. I wanted to continue my education and complete some Speciality courses. Josh and Tim were able to answer all of my many questions and helped me narrow down my options from their wide choice of available SSI Speciality courses. After completing a couple of forms, I tried on some (very well kept) equipment ready to start diving the following morning! Tim introduced me to Paul, a very experienced diver who would be my buddy for the duration of the course. Tim conducted briefings/debriefings before/after each dive on the spacious and well equipped boat. This enabled me to understand what I had to do, how well I did it and what I could do to improve further. We spent sometime in one of their comfortable training rooms covering the theory of each speciality. In two really fun days I learnt a huge amount from Tim (and Paul). I'd highly recommend Koh Lipe Diving to anyone wanting to continue their Scuba Diving education or to anyone totally new to the sport.
