Free Diving

I was unable to go on the boat to finish the certification but Dan went above and beyond to make sure I could finish. He took extra time to bring me out to a different part of the island, showed me a wreck and free dove with me alone.
It was a really wonderful experience and I HIGHLY recommend to anyone looking to certify in any type of diving. These guys are the bees knees!

Open Water

I enjoyed a lot my diving experience in Davy Jones Locker Diving in Tao.
Amy, my diving instructor, helped me to overcome my fear in the beginning.
Staff in the bar were super friendly.

Dan was amazing

I had a great experience getting certified with my scuba instructor Dan! I was a bit nervous going in and he really made me feel super safe and comfortable. I had this overwhelming trust in him because he was so calm and composed. He was super laid back and personable. I feed of his energy and I really had a great time learning to dive with Dan!! Great instructor for sure!! Thanks Dan hope you are well!

Good diving school - better co-ordination required

The instructors are great. The reception staff are very friendly and are not pushy. The co-ordination could have been better. Communication on which vehicle to board wasn't very clear and we were left around to find things out by ourselves. The time seemed quite limited between the early dives and the afternoon dives so the instructors barely had time to organize everything for the afternoon dives if they were coming straight from their morning dive sessions, so everything seemed a little rushed.

Excellent team and the most amazing experience

Our instructors Damon and Fish were excellent, they explained things so well and made the experience so enjoyable. Due to bad weather I became quite seasick on our first dive. However due to their assistance I still managed to complete my PADI training. Would recommend to anyone!

Amazing

DJL has small groups on between 2-4 people witch is perfect because you feel like the instructor has time for you if you don't feel safe.
Everything is in a nice tempo so everyone understands what's going on!
The bar/restaurant has a nice atmosphere and you can talk too everyone here while having a beer in the free pool.

Great Dive Company

Me and my partner did our PADI Open Water courses with DJL and it was great! So much so we ended up doing our advanced too! We had Fish & Damo as our instructors, 4 of us in the group for Open Water and 3 of us led by Fish for our Advanced. Specifically chose here because of the small group sizes and my sister also used these guys and recommended them.

The guys made learning super fun, but also going over everything thoroughly so you felt confident in what you were doing. They were great at answering any questions and going over things again and we all felt very safe and in good hands. DJL also look after their equipment (saw some of the other dive schools not doing this so well).

We also used Koh Tao Pro Video (via DJL) to have our last day of diving filmed and put together into an awesome video. As we had done most of our skills on previous dives (as well as obviously in the pool), it meant the dives being filmed were much more fun and relaxed. DJL are also very sociable, the pool bar always has a mix of travellers and instructors there. Even outside of work hours, they're happy to answer questions on diving and all the guys are a good laugh too.

Davy Jones Locker is slightly more expensive than the other dive centres, but if you want a more personal experience with alot of care and attention, you have to go with these guys! Plus, you also get the bonus of the social side on evenings and when you aren't diving :)

Brilliant dive centre and amazing staff

I had an amazing experience with Davy Jones Locker. Such brilliant diving and amazing staff, especially Rich Griffith's. I saw so much with him and it was a really personal experience. He even helped me by explaining how to get a good mask. All the staff were friendly and the morals of the company are better than that of other bigger companies on the island. Brilliant scuba gear and an around amazing experience. Thank you

I had an instructor on my own, thanks to the low season. It was a relaxing atmosphere and we had plenty of time for practice. It was awesome and I had a super instructor. Thank you Alexia

Affordable, fun, and professional. Excellent time!

This was the most affordable option I found for Koh Tao diving and the quality was excellent! The price included skills/equipment review, equipment rental, an in-water skills review, and 2 fun dives. The dive instructors were incredibly friendly, relaxed, and enjoyable to be around. My bf and I hadn't been diving in quite some time but after taking a quick "test" (basically a skills review, don't worry about not passing) and reviewing how to use the equipment we felt pretty comfortable. It was a pretty quick review so I did feel a little unsure once we were actually on the boat and getting ready for our first dive (since it'd been so long since I'd dived), but the instructors were there to help if I had any questions. The trip to the dive sites were short, and the dives themselves were great. Visibility was good and we saw a nice variety of coral, fish, sea urchins, sea cucumbers, and 2 sea turtles! I would definitely recommend this company!
