Amazing experience with great instructors!!

Completed my PADI open water course here last month and it was definitely one of the highlights of my trip to Thailand! Great, supportive instructors who made me feel safe and helped me to have the best 4 days! Would recommend this to anyone who wants to take the plunge :)

Davy Jones locker in Koh Tao

I went to Davy Jones locker in Koh Tao, because I couldn't find any where else better than this one, I had such a great time with the people and the resort that was included with my diving course was clean, I think next time I will choose Davy Jones locker again:)

Fantastic!

Absolutely fantastic! I cannot say enough good things about DJL and their incredible staff. We did our Open Water with Chris and then Advanced Open Water immediately after with Rich. Small class sizes + great instructors and support staff make for a safe, fun and relaxed time. Well done and thank you!

Best diving school around Koh Tao, for sure!

Literally the best dive school! I did my open water and loved it so much that within a week I was back completing my advanced! Instructors are amazing, and so supportive! Everyone was super friendly and the dive shop was very helpful when it came to booking stuff on the day! Just genuinely had the nicest time diving here :)

A great diving school

I was visiting Davy Jones Locker Diving on two occasions - in Koh Tao and Koh Lipe, both experiences were great, with splendid atmosphere, superb instructors, and well maintained equipment and technical stuff. Would cheerfully recommend them to friends and family. To everyone in fact.

Good Diveshop, Average Diving sites (bad visibility)

Pros: If you're going to do your open water diving in Koh Tao, I do recommend them. Professional, friendly, they gave my boyfriend 1-to-1 instruction on his Open Water certificate. They also gave us a discount accommodation (at Silver Sands resort Bungalow next to Sairee beach). They have a small pool, where a lot of people do their open water. The restaurant served pretty good food. It was cheap (not really spicy).

Cons: The diving in Koh Tao Sucks. Visibility is low, not colorful. The tiny boat that we were packed into was almost sinking because there were too many people on it. There's nothing really bad about the dive shop itself except for overcrowding, but if you are going to do your Open Water, there's better (and cheaper) options than Koh Tao, such as Semporna in Malaysia, Sabang, Phillippines, Kota Kinabalu Malaysia (also bad visibility but a little bit cheaper), and Koh Lanta in Thailand (more expensive but the visibility is phenomenal)

Response from Davy Jones Locker Diving Apr 15, 2015

Thanks for your review. Unfortunately it sounds as though the visibility wasn't great whilst you were here, it does vary during the year and in general the diving conditions aren't as good around when the Full Moon Parties are on. I was surprised to hear that any of those places offered the Open Water course cheaper than here on Koh Tao, but when checking it I did find a place in Sipidan that was indeed cheaper than here, however it did have a note at the bottom of the Open Water course that said the following -
DIVING IN SIPADAN ISLAND:
As announced by the Malaysian Government effective 10th Feb 2013 the following rules apply when diving Sipadan Island:
only Advanced Open Water Divers or entry level divers with a minimum of 20 log dives are allowed to dive in Sipadan.
Underwater Cameras, Hand Gloves and Fish Pointers are totally banned in Sipadan.

Which did make me wonder how it was that people were supposed to take the Open Water course unless they'd previously logged 20 DSD dives. The other places were all more expensive than here on Koh Tao though.

The best way to avoid the busy times here on Koh Tao is to not come here immediately before or after a Full Moon Party over on Koh Phangan.

Good diving course

The Diving course offfered by Davy Jones Locker Diving is very good because of the experienced instructors and the personal approach. For example; We had two instructors for only two students. This gives a great opportunity to learn diving.

Top notch dive school

I loved the individual instructor attention. My group only had one other diver in it, so the instructor was able to make sure we mastered every skill and learned everything properly. I highly recommend DJL to anyone thinking about getting certified. High quality!

My First Dive Experience

It was really fun! Also since I am student, having a license helps enhance my portfolio.
All the dive instructors were really helpful and also ensured that element of fun was there throughout
