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

Professional and a lot of fun!

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.

AMAZING EXPERIENCE

I started Diving with Davy Jones Locker at the end of May.
I haven't even been in a pool for over 10 years, but the staff there had so much patience and were so welcoming, I completed my Open Water and stayed on to do my Advanced.
They made me feel so at ease and safe, and are incredibly welcoming. While being highly professional in their teaching, they are not cold and clinical. The atmosphere is so warm and inviting, with no pressure/obligation to do anything you're not comfortable with.

They took their time with me, and I am now certified to dive up to 30m! The views and experience is just incredible! Since doing the course with Davy Jones Locker, I've spent more time in the water, than on land.

I haven't been near a pool in over 10years. I've now logged nearly 30 hours of diving in just under 4 weeks!

I'm already planning my return for more training!

Thanks Davy Jones Locker!

Good facilities but the same diving spots

The staff was nice and friendly and knowledgeable. The equipment were of good quality and the size of the groups was nice aka smaller. I did my basic and advance classes in a week and we basicually did the same two spots everyday because some staffers didn't want to get out of their routine.

I got wet!

I did my PADI open water diving course here. I was in a small group just 3 people and my instructor Davy was amazing. He was really friendly, patient and made me feel at ease. We watched a few videos and did 2 sessions in the pool practicing skills before 4 amazing dives in the open water. We didn't see and sharks or turtles but we saw so many other things, obviously thousands of longfinned batfish, a blue spotted ray, moray eels, trigger fish, puffer fish, groupers, butterfly fish, the list is endless along with the coral, creatures that live in it and sea cucumbers etc it was a really amazing experience. I also did a fun dive with Robyn and Radu assisting which was really great too, both of them are really friendly as I can imagine all the instructors at DJL are. Thanks everyone and hopefully see you again soon!

Great experience

I chose DJL after reading some reviews online for scuba spots in koh tao. Let's get the one weak spot out of the way. The accommodations are meh that come with your signing up for cert classes. But who really cares anyways. You're not there to sleep in a hostel all day. The instructor (Chris) was super chill. Like the kind of guy you can have a beer with but still knowleable enough to make you feel like your in good hands. The first day is boring video stuff but things you need to know. Once you get past that the fun begins. I won't go into detail just know that it was my best experience in he ocean ever. I got sea sick our first dive day and they didn't make me feel bad about it and rescheduled me accordingly. Best part is I woke up early the next day and just because inspt all day from sea sickness and ended getting the ok to finish my dives with my same group instead of rescheduling. Needless to say they were very accommodating and made for a fun experience. Plan I going back soon for my next cert.

Great stuff, amazing instructors, setting and atmosphere!

From the first conversation to the last goodbye with these guys, everything was superb and dream-worthy. The accommodation, food, theory course, materials, swimming pool sessions, skills, boatrides and first encounter with the big blue...was all perfectly managed in an easy-going, welcoming, supportive, secure and crazy fun-loving way. Even though I had some problems on the fear front both Manuel and Rich were super supportive and patient all the way during the course.
If you ever go to Koh Tao, DJL is the place to go to! Enjoy the vibes guys!
