Everything was great! The teachers were really nice and helpful. Before I came I thought it would be harder but they made it so easy for me.

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

Best time ever!

Diving with DJL was so much more fun than I had expected! I decided to do the Advanced Open Water because I really got fascinated by diving. Also the instructors made the whole thing a very good experience. Personally I would like to do it all over again. I would definitely recommend DJL to anyone!

Great experience!!

The instructors at DJL were great, they know their stuff, and the groups are quite small so everyone gets as much help as they need. I was a little bit nervous beforehand but there was nothing to worry about, so glad I did it!

Individual instructor

When I asked for my own instructor they immediately assigned me one at no extra cost. They have their own pool for first timers, and the instructor was very competent and encouraging. No major complaints about the dive operation or the equipment.

Organizing was bad and timing horrible

I was told to come 10am for scuba review, but at 10am I was told to come back at 11am. After the review test I had to wait for almost an hour at the cafe. After waiting at the cafe we went to the beach - and got some more waiting. Waiting time was way too long and the snacks on the boat was poorly too. Dive master was great!

Really professional, Knowledgeable, and enjoyable people to work with.

Really professional, Knowledgeable, and enjoyable people to work with. If anything they over prepare you for your IDC, I passed with nearly full marks (literally one point lost in one briefing) and finished the exams in less than an hour.

You will come out knowing everything you need to know about the PADI system and be better prepared to deal with groups of divers safely.

Great value beginner dive centre

Initially arrived for a value open water padi before moving on. However , soon after signed up for advanced and would have stayed longer to do DMT and complete wreck and deep sea speciality were time not a constraint.

Class Act

The instructors we had ( Lex & garland) were extremely professional and a good laugh. The open water course we did was quite daunting at first, but the instructors made us feel safe and comfortable throughout. I could not praise them enough for such an enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend DJL!!!!

Mass treatment for beginners, no fun for fundiver

Average age is around 20, almost exclusively beginner, main interest is licence selling - PADI: put another dollar in, lost and found room open for public, snorkel and mask stolen: not surprising therefore

there are much better places would not recommend Davy Jones Locker Diving

Response from Davy Jones Locker Diving Apr 06, 2015

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your fun dive with us, I do realise that you were here just after the February Full Moon Party over on Koh Phangan during the busiest 4 day period ever for our dive school.
The average age of students at the time you were here was lower than usual too as we had a school party of twenty two 16-19 year olds who started their Open Water course the day before you did your fun dive. We don't actually have a lost and found room, I think that you are referring to our kit room which yes is open during the day but is monitored by CCTV. With the shear numbers of people who were going through the dive school over that particular 4 day period it's most likely that someone accidentally picked up your mask and snorkel thinking it was dive school equipment if you'd left it in our equipment room.
