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 :)

Great Experience

Friendly staff and great instructors. Me and my friend took two fun dives and after that we decided to get our Advanced open water course.

The fun dives with Matt were amazing. Great visibility (20m+) and Matt is a great instructor being calm, friendly and enthusiastic. He did his best to show us all the local sea life and led us to a school of fish which was an experience I won't forget.

The advanced dives with James were very informative. James takes one step further to teach people important aspects of diving and his instructions are very clear. Felt safe with every dive we took.

There were some problems with the diving gear (BCD especially) which occurred on different dives we took. This might need some attention.

If you're looking for a laid back diving center with a lot of fun and nice people I recommend JDL as a diving center on Koh Tao. The pool parties are also very nice!

Thanks Matt, James and bald epic beard guy (forgot his name) for the great experience!

Staff were fantastic. Did my Open Water & Advanced. Everyone was so friendly and it made for a very personable experience. With the help of the pool for training and the bar for afterwards, I can't recommend enough!

Great staff, great experience

The only reason for not giving Excellent score is the equipment. It is time to refurbish. Other than that, the staff are professionals. Everyone! Special thanks to Matthew who was absolutely brilliant, professional as well as sensitive with my 12-year old daughter.

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

Great reactivation course

I had a great diving experience here after 2 years of no diving. The most important things were reviewed before the 2 dives. Recommend it!

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

Incredibly well run with both instructors James and Sander taking time to explain every step of the way in a fun but clear and precise way. -Thanks to the whole DJL team for the hospitality.

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!

Amazing!

I did a discovery dive in a small group of 3. It was all of our first times scuba diving and our two instructors were amazing! They explain all the proper techniques on land and in the water and made sure we could do them before we started diving. I felt like I really knew what I was doing and we all had an amazing dive without any problems.
