Simply excellent!

Sander and Patricia were phenomenal instructors. We moved quickly and efficiently through a lot of material without sacrificing attention to safety or the astonishing experience of diving.

Their care, gentle encouragement and understanding helped me feel comfortable throughout the process. By the time I left I could not imagine a more exhilarating activity and cannot wait to see them again.

I highly recommend DJL and will certainly be going back.

I owe Davy Jones Locker, Sander, Patricia and the rest of the staff a debt of gratitude for the incredible experience.

Dive Shop Operations course

Took this course with Ed. There were only two of us, which made everything go much quicker. Most of the stuff is pretty intuitive if you know how to use tools and like exploring the insides of gadgets and things. Ed made the course entertaining and gave clear guidance for all the procedures we covered. The course was projected to take around a week, but with focus and effort, it can be done in around five days. I highly encourage anyone taking this course to ask as many questions as possible.

The compressor operator portion was ok. I was more interested in the equipment and gas blending portions, which were well worth the time and money.

Best experience ever!

Went to Kho Tao with a friend for diving. We choose Davy Jones Locker, and it was the best choice ever! We lived near the beach and it was easy to meet up with our instructor! We took our Open Water and because we liked it so much... We took Advanced too. We love diving, and will definetly come back to Kho Tao again! Best hobby ever!

Great atmosphere and good trainer

I enjoyed my padi course a lot, it was better than I expected! The people were very relax and fun. I did the course alone, I was a bit afraid that it would be a bit boring but it turned out that it was a lot better to be alone! Thibault and Alexia were so nice and I had a lot of fun with them. We managed to do really long dives. And we weren't only with the three of us, at the boat there were other nice dive master candidates as well. The accommodations (hostel and silver sand) were good and a special mention to Bonnie who filmed my last two dives. The video is amazing and fun, a good reminder of this beautiful time under water! Great part where Thibault twerks and so cool how she captured both the baby trigger fish and the box fish! I am also very happy with the stills of the movie, beautiful shots. Since I don't own the rights, I think I can't upload them, but they are good trust me! ;)

And not to forget, the bar where we gather is lovely, good ambiance, sweet waiters and great banana shakes! I recommend this diving school to everyone. Would love to go back there!

Professional and safe! But most important, fun!

A great location to take your open water. The equipment has a good standard, and the dive bar is really cool. At Davy Jones they are very professional and easy going. The instructors are great! I had a great time diving with DJL. A wonderful start to my trip!

Excellent diving course

In only 4 days time the people at DJL will teach you all about diving. We enjoyed it so much we did our Advanced the next two days. DJL works in small groups (max. 4p.) which helps to get a lot of attention from your intructeur(s).

The divespots are nice and Koh Tao is probably the best place to learn how to dive.

Big thanks to our instructor Dani for giving us a great time!

I really liked it to do Fun Dives and my PADI Advanced open Water.
We always had small groups for the lessons and the dives! This was really great.

Attentive and Organized Staff

We participated in the PADI Open Water Dive Certification as a couple with Thibault as our instructor. He was patient with us as one member was less comfortable than the other. Throughout the three day course the instructor was available to refresh skills, discuss challenges and explain how things would unfold underwater. He was calm underwater and made both of us feel comfortable within our respective skill level. The other staff we encountered checked up on us during the boat ride to the dive sites and clearly explained what would happen each time we went on a dive. The team was prompt, had new equipment and thorough after each dive. Highly recommend Davy Jones to any skill level!

Good company!

Our last dive was in november 2015, we are certified OWD. We visited several diveshops on Koh Tao, on the other diveshops they mentioned we have to do a checkup dive, this will cost us a lot of money and was priced as 1 dive. At davy jones locker, it was possible to include the checkup dive into the first dive and it took us about 10 min to do the tricks under water. That day we ended up doing the checkup dive and two other dives. So very good service.

Also we did a yoga lesson on Koh Tao, the yoga instructor who gave the lesson, was also our dive instructor at davy jones locker diving. I felt a bit nervous for the dive trip, this I mentioned to the dive instructor. She kept an eye on me, and made sure I was feeling ok under water.

After the trip you can chill in the swimming pool that is attached to the bar.

Amazing place

We took the open water and advanced open water courses with DJL. The instructors were fantastic; knowledgeable, experienced, patient and incredibly friendly all the time :)
I can't speak for any of the other scuba schools in Koh Tao since I've only been to this one, but I will say that having been to DJL I have no interest in seeing what anyone else has to offer. They're that good

Great personality within the staff

I recommend these awesome guys from Ko Taos best dive center, Davy Jones Locker.
The staff makes you feel welcome like home, whenever you are with them. The environment around the dive center is relaxed and there is just such a good vibe. You can ask them any question that comes too your mind about the beautiful island or any other mater.
Davy Jones Locker is a great place too realize your dreams within' diving and the awesome culture.

Good school with nice instructors

Did my PADI over there two months ago with Thibo and Rich: they are well-trained professionals with a good sense of humor. Thinking of going back in October to sign up for the advanced PADI open water. Definitely a recommendation worth!

Excellent dive instructor... A few hiccups with organisation

Fantastic experience. The dive instructor (young French guy) was simply fantastic, very easy going, informative, chilled but very safety conscious. Did deep dive cert and went really well.

Had a little run in with rapid onset decompression sickness but handled really well by whole team.

A couple of dives could have been organised better (boat wrong side of island) but apart from that small hiccups excellent dive company!

Poor organisation

OPEN WATER COURSE - No pier pick up as planned, the original deal we booked was scrapped which resulting in us paying more, my partner was talked out of doing her DSD and incouraged to do an open water course which she couldn't complete due to her anxiety and resulted in her paying a lot more, poor organisation between the instructors meaning we spent a lot of time waiting around doing nothing over the 4 days, party atmosphere, aimed at gap year students

We where not sure if we had the time and money to go diving. We walked into djl and our instructor took us to give it a quick go. And we were sold. Instead of 1 course we did 2 with some fun dives. We had an amazing and fun instructor. The place also has an amazing fibe. Highly recommended this place:)

The place to go diving in Koh Tao

Koh Tao has a diving school in every corner of the island. After doing extensive research based on price, quality, and service we ended up going with DJL. From the moment we landed in Koh Tao, DJL welcomed us and drove us to our lodging. From there, we were introduced to the staff which were super friendly and helpful in getting us set up and explaining what's to expect for the coming days of training. The Open Water Certificate took 3 days to complete with a mix of classroom instruction, pool introduction, then open water diving. Classroom count was super low as it was just my wife and I and 1 instructor for the first 2 days then they added a 3rd person on the last day. The pool never felt crowded nor did the boat while we did our dives. Our instructor, Dani, was super friendly and informative and did an outstanding job teaching us everything we needed to know. All the staff at DJL was great too and made sure we were well cared for and having a great time. We'll definitely be going back to them for all of our future dives in Koh Tao.

Friendly atmosphere and great instructors

DJL has been amazing scuba diving shop overall. We were 3 people with one instructor and we all got the necessary attention to learn everything we need to get certified. This was very important for me as i have a great fear of deep water because i don't know how to swim properly. First day we had a 2-3 hour theory session where we watched some videos and did some quizzes. Second day early in the morning we started our pool session where we learned every skill for handling the equipment, diving with it and rescue skills. Same day later on we continued the theory and watched some more videos. At the end we took the exam which it wasn't that hard but there are a lot of trick questions. 3rd day we had our 2 dives at around 1pm. We went at 10m deep and we had to show that we can do skills that we learned in the pool as well underwater and while floating. First dive was very scary for me and i felt uncomfortable but it is totally normal for a first dive. Second dive i learned some tricks and i felt more okay being deep. 4th day we had our 3rd and 4th dive and we had a videographer to record our experience. 3rd dive required us to do some more skills at 18m deep but 4th one was mostly just swimming around the corals. By the 4th dive i felt extremely comfortable being that deep but it was still scary midway because you can only see blue around you. Our instructor Virginie was really great and took care of us making sure we learned properly how to dive. I would recommend DJL to anyone as they managed to do a miracle and teach ME how to dive.
