Cave diving course with Blue Label Diving

The aim of this trip was to train me for cave diving, and we covered TDI Intro to Cave, Full Cave, and Cave DPV. The courses were professionally run, and while I was pushed past my comfort zone, I always felt safe. Food and accomodation were good. At the end of the course I was happily zooming around the 50m line on the scooter inside the cave at Song Hong. Lots of fun

Intro. Trimix & Caves

Just returned from 5 weeks of incredible diving with Blue Label Diving. Aimed to complete my Full Cave and Stage Cave courses but enjoyed them so much I continued with the Extended Range and Trimix courses. Diving with Ben Capitaine on a 60m dive underneath Song Hong lake - amazing experience and has definitely expanded my view of what is possible in diving. Ben Reymenants and Simone Reymenants run a fantastic operation, I highly recommend anyone considering technical diving training to contact their shop in Phuket, Thailand. The dives in the freshwater caves inland from Krabi have included some of the most challenging/rewarding diving experiences I've had. Thanks to everyone at Blue Label, I will definitely be back!

Great Dive Shop

I had a blast learning VIP, and Cavern to Full Cave Course in twin sets. In order to dive more complex caves, sidemount was recommended. So in all, 5 courses in 9 days with 1 great instructor, Por Parasu Komaradat. Student to Instructor ratios was great, 1:1. For the Cave Courses, it can be challenging learning all the skills in such a short time, but with Por’s teachings made it easy to learn as he adapts the training to make sure you understand and complete all the skills. Por did a great job in teaching sidemount, that I have consider switch over to sidemount in the near future. Everything was taken care of from the transportation to and from the airport, dive logistics, hotels, and food. Simone did a great of setting up the courses and even handled a delay in a schedule that occurred last minute with great success. What a great dive shop, and couldn’t have asked for everything else to make it a better class as it already perfect. My only complaint was such a long drive to and from Krabi, especially when you’re stuck in traffic.

Below and beyond in all expectations

After dealing with Blue Label in Australia I was put in contact with Simone in Thailand regarding my cave diving inquiry. I found Simone to be very helpful and prompt in her replies and assistance.
Once agreeing on a package to suit my timelines and qualifications I found myself in Thailand in mid Jan 2015 with a week of cave diving ahead.
Due to circumstances outside of their control the itinerary had to be drastically changed and this led to Simone and Ben working out an alternative option in a very short timeframe and were extremely understanding of my hesitations with the alternative plans.
Once I met with my guide and dive buddy Ben C, I knew the trip would be fine.
The only equipment I needed was a primary light and tanks, and all were in perfect working order. I had regulator fail and without question they found me a spare one for the remainder of the trip.

The accommodation in each place was great and the food each day stunning.
Ben C and his wife were wonderful hosts and tour guides. These guys don't know the word no and nothing is too difficult or hard.

The cave diving ranged from extremely challenging with low vis, tight penetrations and awkward dives to magical clear caves with stunning decorations and layouts. Some caves were only 7.2mts deep whilst others were 40mts at entry.
Each dive posed a new challenge and opportunity and at no point did I feel like Ben or myself were pushing any limits. Ben is 1st class in his dive briefs and execution of every dive. Safety is paramount in cave diving and this is not ignored when dealing with Blue Label. Nothing is overlooked with equipment, qualifications and dives.

There is no higher recommendation than the fact of saying, Ill be back very soon to get into SongHong.
Thanks Simone, Patcha, Ben R and dive buddy Ben C .

A memorable training experience

Awesome experience. Took advanced nitrox and Deco procedure. I expected the training to be very skill oriented and comprehensive and was not dissapointed. Ben Captain, Reymenants and Claus were all very good and patient instructors and made sure all skills are mastered and mistakes promptly pointed out and rectified. I received tips on how to optimise my equipment and improvement on trim and buoyancy control. I came back a more confident diver and looking forward to further my skills and experience with blue label diving. Great training and worth every penny and more.

Excellent options for tech

I did two cave courses with Blue Label in Phuket and found them to be excellent. Everything was extremely well communicated and organised ahead of the trip, and all ran smoothly once we got started. The instructors, Por and Benoit were both very knowledgable, being very patient and supportive at all times. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Blue Label and either Por or Benoit without reservations.

Open water dive course at Blue Label Diving

Even though the shop specialises in tech courses, I was happy to find out that the team also arranges open water dive courses. This suited me well since my partner is an experienced tech-diver, whereas I had no prior experience in diving and wanted to learn the basics. The training was one-on-one, progressed at my pace and the course was well organised. As an added bonus, they had arranged Finnish-speaking dive instructor to make the learning process just that one bit easier.
I also got to try my new skills on a separate fresh water dive at Song Hong lake which gave a sneak peek into cavern diving.

CCR MOD III with Blue Label Diving

Came to Blue Label Diving with high expectations having received great feedback about the instructor Ben Reymenants and was blown away with the course and the team. Ben’s knowledge is very extensive and encourages the student to think about every decision they make and how this has a flow on affect for things to come. He is very open minded and willing to discuss ideas and lets you explain your process and helps you fine tune this to get better outcomes. This said he certainly demands high quality diving and demonstrates this clearly in the water. He is backed by a great team of people as well, that were always willing to help and the little things they did made the whole trip a truly great experience.

Five star service

I found their information from the certification website and had a great experience taking a course with them. Simone, the manager, was very helpful and stayed on top of the whole process. My coach Ralf was very nice, considering I vomited profusely on the first day of the trip. I would rate them 5 stars and would highly recommend to others.

High quality training with a personal touch.

Ben Reymenants is one of the most experienced technical dive instructors in SE Asia. I did my CCR Trimix and CCR Advanced Trimix courses with him recently. I chose to do the courses in the caves of Song Hong and Sra Keow, as this provided an assurance that the courses were going ahead regardless of the weather. The ambience of caves was an added bonus. The alternative of basing the course in Phuket and going out to sea in day boats was offered.
Ben's approach was incremental, ensuring that skills were learned properly, before moving on to the next stage of training. My comfort level was challenged at times, as it should be by a course at this level, but I always felt safe. As a trained dive medic, and an experienced hyperbaric chamber operator, Ben has a deeper appreciation of diving physiology and decompression theory than most instructors.
Transport, food and accomodation while away at the caves was included in the price of the course, though food and accomodation while in Phuket was not. The local Thai food at the resort near Song Hong was excellent. The rooms were clean, tidy, and well kept, but don't expect 5 star accomodation; this is a rural district in a third world country. The logistics of tanks, gases, and other supplies required for the course were well organised.
I really enjoyed doing these courses, and I am a better diver for having done them.

Best of the best

This was my first time with Blue label Diving and I was made to feel one of the family from the very beginning.
Couple the warm genuine friendliness with the outstanding tuition proved its a win every time !
Ben's knowledge and ability to impart it to different people with all different accents is also priceless when learning !
All in all my trip was very demanding and also the best courses I've ever done, due not only to the professionalism and friendliness show by all the people involved in Blue Label Diving but also the first class tuition provided.
So don't delay book with Ben & Simone today, you will not regret it !!!!

The first choice for technical training

The training with Ben and Ralph has been absolutely superb and is top of the line.

I did my MOD2 CCR Trimix certification with Ben, and he really understands how to push you out of your comfort zone. As their slogan goes, you will redefine your limits. I really liked the excellent insights that provide me with a solid knowledge base while also receiving instant feedback on the good and bad choices you make underwater and above.

If you are only after a certification card, you may want to move on. If you are after training that helps you to be a better diver and buddy, while setting you up for encountering and subsequently mastering the toughest situations underwater, then this is your place.

I really cannot recommend Ben highly enough, it has been a fantastic experience. I am looking forward to other courses with him in the future.

Complete delight

Deliberately write in Russian, for a variety of reviews. Dived and was trained under the guidance of Ben Capitaine. Passed courses TDI Sidemount and TDI Cavern. Training: Ben-a real teacher, with a capital u. He is continually looking for how to give material specifically to you. Very supportive on land and is loads under water. Training very seriously, and I can now say with certainty that is ready for much more under water than before. Equipment and safety: Only serious equipment respected brands. All in excellent condition. For example, I dived almost new BCD Hollis SMS 100. Delight. Despite some language barriers-all very accessible and a lot of work on land to underwater, everything was OK. Miscellaneous: ship for Daily-the fastest; Accommodation near caves-better than my hotel in Phuket; Food-excellent. You will find the best of everything. Thank you so much! And wait to visit again.

My wife and I attended technical diving courses with Blue Label Diving, Phuket Branch. (Our instructor's name is Ben Capitaine, a very experienced and safety conscious instructor.) Blue Label Phuket provided us a very good services and daily program planning from land down to the sea.

(Whatever questions we have had, all reasonable answers always returns to us even in the water.)

We strongly believed that we made a good choice choosing Blue Label Phuket. We surely look forward to continue using services with the dive center.
